Jeff Carr: OSU Is Where I Want To Be

It feels unusual to be calling young men on a Sunday this late in February that are on their way home from an official visit. It happens and it happened very happily for Temple, Texas running back Jeff Carr, who is much more expressive on the football field with the ball in his hands than he is riding home in a car with his family from the official visit to the school he signed with.

"It was good," Carr answered when asked how his official visit went this weekend as the speedster from Temple and big offensive line prospect Marcus Keyes of Port Allen, La., were both taking their official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend.

The 5-8, 173-pound Carr said that new Cowboys assistant Dan Hammerschmidt showed him around and his player host was sophomore-to-be cornerback Ramon Richards.

"It is where I want to be," Carr added to his first answer. "The facilities are great. My folks were there and they liked it."

Carr earned All-Centex honors from several sources, including the Austin American Statesman and the Waco Tribune as he led Temple into the playoffs. He was also named Most Valuable Player in District 17-5A with his 2,147 yards rushing and 19 touchdowns.

Carr and his family were riding home Sunday afternoon and he will get back to working out with track this coming week. Carr is a favorite in the sprints in his district and could make some serious noise at the state meet later this spring.
