Carr hearing from SEC schools

Michael Carr is already one of the top names in the Magnolia State for the 2010 class. With one offer under his belt, the West Point junior is beginning to feel his recruitment open up.

After a breakout sophomore year, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound prospect felt that his junior season saw his game lose a step.


"I didn't feel like I played as well as I could have," Carr said. "I made the switch on offense from receiver to quarterback so that I could get more touches, and I ended up hurting my ankle. So I moved back out to receiver and then lined up at cornerback on defense.


"I feel like I will project as a pretty good receiver at the next level," he added. "I will stay at receiver in my senior season, so everyone will see how I can play. After this season's poor finish, I am ready to get back out there. I got something for everyone, so it should be an awesome year."


Carr said that the news on the college front continues to heat up, and the attention from colleges is coming more and more each month.


"The schools I am really hearing from are Mississippi State, LSU and Alabama," he said. "I got offered by Mississippi State when Coach [Sylvester] Croom was there, and Alabama and LSU have been sending me some different kinds of things through the mail. I camped at Alabama, so that is why they have stayed on me.


"With LSU, I am hearing from both the football and basketball team. They have not been sending a lot of stuff lately, but it is still early in my process. I like LSU, so it is a good possibility that I am going to get down there to check them out next summer."


While the Tigers hope to get a look from Carr, the frontrunners seem to remain the Bulldogs.


"I have always liked Mississippi State, and with coach [Dan] Mullen coming in, people feel like things are going to turn around," he said. "Coach Croom did some great things, but the west coast offense was not something that State could run and win with.


"Coach Mullen is going to get in there and put in the spread, and that is what the kids from around this area really know how to have success with. He is going to change the whole scene up there, and I really think he is going to flip the script."
