Tigers Beat Tide for In-State Receiver

Quindarius Carr has signed to become an Auburn Tiger.

Huntsville, Ala.--Auburn struggled at receiver positions during the 2006 season and loses leading receiver Courtney Taylor to graduation. However, the Tigers won a recruiting battle over Alabama for the commitment of Huntsville wideout Quindarius Carr, who signed with Auburn on Wednesday.

Without many proven players at receiver for the 2007 season, Carr will have a chance to compete for playing time in August. He is one of two receiver prospects expected to be in Tommy Tuberville's 2007 class. The other being Chris Slaughter from Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va.

Carr committed to Auburn on Nov. 4 and took his official visit to Auburn on Jan. 12. He had scholarship offers from the Tigers, Crimson Tide, Louisville and South Carolina but used just one of his allowed five official visits.

Carr is a three-star receiver by Scout.com and the 75th rated player at his position. As the son of an Air Force veteran he lived in Europe as a high school freshman and in Montana as a sophomore before moving to Huntsville, where he played for coach Kevin Wieseman.

The 6-1, 175-pound playmaker quickly caught the eye of Wieseman and caught 26 passes for 426 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior and 41 for 550 yards and three scores as a senior.
