Texas 7v7: Patrick Carr

Scout.com was on hand for the Texas State 7-on-7 tournament. Several top teams and players were in action. In this update, we caught up with The Woodlands running back Patrick Carr. He is ready to start making a few visits and actually has a program that has his full attention.

At the time of the last Scout.com update with The Woodlands (Tex.) running back Patrick Carr, no visits had been made, not set at that time. And while the former is still the case, Carr is inching closer to getting out and seeing a few of the 14 options he has to continue his career as a college football player.

In fact, a recent offer for Carr has peaked his interest quite a bit, and that is one of the primary schools he wants to make sure and check out the campus.

“I actually got a scholarship off from Arkansas two weeks ago. I’m just looking at my options and what visits I’m going to take,” Carr said. “In September I’m going to try to find a weekend and get out to some schools (for official visits) like Duke, Arizona State and Arkansas. I’m still trying to figure out the other two schools.”

For the 5-foot-8, 188-pound Carr, things are still up in the air, but September 2014 seems to be the presumed date to get out and visit. To date, Carr has reeled in a number of offers, but not many from the SEC.

Now with the Razorbacks in hand, Carr’s excitement level with this program has raised quite a bit over the past couple of weeks.

“Arkansas is standing out to me and that’s the one I was shooting for. I have been interacting with the running backs coach for a while now,” Carr said. “The (Arkansas) coaches are looking at me as more of like a speed back type. There is a speed and power situation with their running game. I’m excited about Arkansas because I would be able to run track too. You know… speed kills and I just want to make sure and get faster for the game.”

Carr has several other options to choose from including Kentucky, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Oregon State and Texas Tech.
