Jabari Carr was a three-star talent coming out of Oak Grove High School in 2008. However, grades prevented him from getting to the next level and he enrolled in Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia to bring up his academics.
The 6-foot-0, 195 Carr reports an offer from San Jose State, who pursued him heavily during his senior year and stuck with him while he brought up his grades. He will be visiting soon, and could commit at that time.
"Ya, I have an offer," Carr said. "I will be visiting for the Nov. 21 game and we'll see on that day."
SJSU is the clear favorite and Carr said he is excited at the possibility of playing in front of the home-town crowd.
"I love San Jose," he said. "We need football back in my city and I'd love to help bring us to the top."
