No Rush for Carr

Gadsden, Ala., offensive lineman Tyler Carr couldn't have asked for a better start to the recruiting process.

Carr, a member of the recruiting class of 2015, already holds scholarship offers from, among others, Georgia, Vanderbilt and Auburn. Alabama, Ole Miss and LSU have shown interest as well, with Carr having camped at each of those schools this summer.

"I'm very blessed to have those (offers) under my belt already," Carr, who stars for Southside High School in Gadsden, said. "We're just kind of planning it out and moving through."

He was one of some 300 prospects to descend on Oxford, Miss., for Ole Miss senior camp last week - the first visit for Carr to Ole Miss. The Rebels like what they have seen from the 6-foot-5, 295-pound tackle, even going so far as to visit him at his school, but no offer has been extended yet.

"I'm looking for a great coaching staff and somewhere that's going to make me feel at home," he said. "I'm just trying to see where I fit in at."

His latest visit was to LSU, another step in what is likely to be a thorough process for Carr.

"I'm going to take my time," he said. "We're going to narrow it down to a top three by next summer and then from there, kind of plan it out. Everywhere I've been, I've kind of enjoyed. I've liked where I've gone, I've like what I've seen. It'll be a hard choice."

Only recently did Carr make the permanent switch from defense to offense, where his future lies. And he has already identified a weakness he hopes to improve over his junior season.

"Working on my pass set," he said. "I moved from defense to offense, so it's new. I'm trying to work on my pass set and get that down."
