Cedar Rapids Athlete Lands First Offer

Alex Carr has accumulated impressive statistics and waited patiently for a college scholarship offer. One final came through for the talented Cedar Rapids Washington RB/CB on Thursday night.

Speedy Cedar Rapids Washington High standout Alex Carr told Scout.com's Rob Howe that he received his first scholarship offer. South Dakota State stepped forward with an opportunity on Thursday night.

Carr, who is among the state's leading rushers, projects as a cornerback on the next level. He also is hearing from Iowa, Iowa State and Northern Iowa.

The knock on Carr is his size, or lack of it. He's lists at 5-foot-9 1/2 and 175 pounds, which is generous. There's no denying his speed after he ran a 4.4-second 40-yard dash this summer.

Check back with Scout.com for the latest on the recruitment of Carr.
