Noles Land Huge WR Commitment

Florida State has been pursuing several of the Nations top wide receiver prospects to go along with quarterback commitment Drew Weatherford. Last night the Noles stuck gold and got themselves a big-target.

According to North Marion Head Coach Craig Damon, wide receiver Greg Carr committed to FSU last night at his high school football banquet.

"Greg told everyone at the banquet last night that he was going to be a Seminole," Coach Graig Damon said. "He committed to Coach Jeff Bowden."

To say that Florida State got a huge-target is an understatement. Carr, a 6-foot-5 and 185 pounds with 4.5 speed, used his size and speed to dominate the Class 3A competition in Florida. As a senior he caught 42 passes for 1, 142 yards and 13 touchdowns. On defense, he intercepted five passes.

The Territory was on hand to see the Citra (Fla.) North Marion standout play in the playoffs. On a fourth and one play in the red-zone, Carr shut down the drive by laying a vicious hit on the running back trying to catch the ball out of the backfield. He also caught a 42-yard pass by running past two defenders.

Not only is he a great athlete but is also a very good person.

"He's a very unselfish player," Coach Damon said. "Greg did whatever it took to help the team become successful. H never let the recruiting process get to him. He tried to stay away from the limelight."

Carr will have one last hurdle to make before he can fulfill his dream of playing for the Seminoles.

"Greg is getting on track to qualify now," Coach Damon said. "Right now he has a 2.4 grade average and a 16 on the ACT. He's really starting to improve in the classroom. The first two times he took the ACT test, he didn't have a calculator."
