Wildcats on the verge of third commit?
Arlington Bowie's Aaron Carr is making a name for himself in the Lone Star state and gaining attention- so much so he very well could be the Wildcats third addition to the 2005 recruiting class.
"Coach Bob Elliot is recruiting me for Kansas State. I like Kansas State a lot. I don't know there is just something about them." In speaking with Aaron, he made it clear that he has no problems leaving the state and that distance would not be a factor in his decision. Indicating that he had not yet had a chance to visit Manhattan, Carr let me know that he had been watching the Cats for some time:" No, I have not been out her yet to check them out but I have seen them on TV and they are good. I've seen a couple of their games and I like their defense and how they play. I can see myself playing for them. I will be going to check them out."
This talented Safety says that he would prefer to stay at safety in college and that is pretty much where everyone is recruiting him to play. " Safety, definitely Safety right now. Maybe some linebacker but I want to stay in the backfield." Last year, Carr had 63 tackles, 2 interceptions, 12 pass break-ups and three fumble recoveries from his Safety spot and is starting to pick up a good deal of attention from other programs and coaches. With 4.4 speed in the forty, a recently registered 4.35 shuttle time at the TCU camp and standing a hair under 6'1, Carr has the speed and and the size to play both of the Safety spots. Given his size, playing man in nickel on some of the Big 12's taller WR's is also a option.
Carr has yet to talk to Head Coach Bill Snyder and as mentioned Coach Bob Elliot is recruiting Carr for the Cats:" Coach Elliot told me about their Defense. He told me about how many DB's come out of their program and are playing in the league. He was telling me about Terrence Newman and their safeties and how they have a lot of juniors and seniors and stuff. Just great things about the program."
Asked about the Wildcat Defense and what he has seen from the games:" I have seen their defense and it is very nice. It fits my style of play I guess you could say….I can't stand to lose, I hate to lose and I can't stand when people don't play. I want to play on a defense like Kansas State's."
With offers just now starting to roll in from other schools, Carr is choosing to spend his summer months trying to improve his entire game and hit some camps: "I just came from the TCU camp and will go to the Louisiana-Monroe camp……maybe hit some other."
With plans to visit a couple camps and work out on other campuses, I asked Carr who his top 5 schools were (in the order he gave them):" Kansas State number one. Kansas, Oklahoma and ATM".
As for an offer from the Cats, Carr indicates that is forthcoming:" I talked with my coach and he says that they are going to be offering me. I think it is supposed to come pretty quick."
So it is safe to assume that should an offer come this recruit would commit? I'll let Aaron answer that himself. " Oh yea, if they offer I am going to commit. I talked with my coach and I am trying to commit right now. Kansas State is my school."
In talking to Aaron it is readily apparent that Kansas State is in the drivers seat and that should the Cats extend and offer, he will become the third commit of the Wildcats 2005 recruiting Class.
We will keep you posted.
