This Carr A Full-Sized Model

Tyler Carr, a class of 2015 football prospect, is already on the radar of coaching staffs. This report features comments from the big lineman and game video highlights.

Gadsden, Ala.--It will be a long time before Tyler Carr can sign scholarship papers to play Division I football, but it is not too early to attract attention from college coaches.

The six-foot-five, 308-pound sophomore at Southside High School was invited to Auburn's first major junior day of 2013 and pointed out that he liked the visit.

"It was real enjoyable," said Carr, an offensive line prospect who got to meet Auburn's coach for that position, J.B. Grimes.

"We got to spend some time together," Carr said. "He said he likes my ability and what he has seen on film. He said he wants to see me more around here."

Carr also got to sit down and talk with head coach Gus Malzahn, who invited the big lineman to come back to the AU campus when spring practice starts and to attend an Auburn football camp this summer.

Just 16 years old, Carr is a two-year starter on the defensive line at Southside as well as a two-year starter in basketball. He noted that he is being recruited as left offensive tackle by Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Alabama as well as Vanderbilt, where he is planning to visit this month for a junior day.

"I am liking everybody for different things," he said, noting it is too early in the recruiting process to have a leader. However, he does point out that Auburn is the college he is most familiar with because of the trips he has made over the years to see the Tigers play.

"My dad is an alumnus of Auburn," Carr said.
