BEAVERTON, Ore. – Despite his commitment to USC, five-star running back Stephen Carr hasn’t stopped talking to other top programs.
In fact, the Fontana (Calif.) Summit standout still talks to Michigan's coaching staff on a regular basis, he said at The Opening Finals on Saturday.
“Most of (U-M’s) coaches love to keep in touch,” Carr said. “They say I am one of their top recruits in the nation.”
Carr, who has already been on Michigan’s campus once for a visit in April, says if he goes back to Ann Arbor, it would most likely be for an official visit this fall.
“Everything that they showed me last was amazing,” Carr said. “So I would like to get a second look at that. I would like to talk to the coaches more on they would use me, and how my education would go up there.”
And it seems Carr has quite the relationship Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh already too.
“He’s a great coach, he’s a character man,” Carr said of Harbaugh. “But I like how he is player friendly. How he can get along with the players. Off the field he’s a great (guy).”
His fondness of U-M’s coaching staff doesn’t stop there; Carr has also built a strong bond with Michigan RB coach Tyrone Wheatley as well.
“A great coach,” Carr said of Wheatley. “Me and coach Wheatley, he keeps it 100 with me, so I like him a lot just for staying so honest. They have three running backs committed I think, but he still keeps it honest. He tells me they need that all-purpose back. I’m that all-purpose back. So he tells me I would be a great fit for their program.”
