In what could be called the “Year of the Big Receiver,” one of the most physically impressive prospects hails from Citra, Fla.
North Marion star Greg Carr (6-5, 200, 4.55) has seen his stock gradually rise since the end of his junior season, and is closing his prep career in style.
“I have about 27 catches for 700 yards and nine touchdowns right now,” he said. “I’m playing full-time on defense, too. I lead the county right now with five interceptions.”
Scouts have taken note. Carr has more than a dozen scholarship offers, including Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, Louisville Pittsburgh and Wake Forest. Miami is also showing a high amount of interest and has indicated he may receive an offer soon.
It appears yet another showdown between the Seminoles and Bulldogs could be in the making.
“Right now, I feel the most comfortable with Florida State and Georgia,” he said. “They’ve been the ones who have shown me the most interest all along. I watch both of those teams on TV a lot. I really like the way they play.
“The last time I talked to the Georgia coach, he told me that it’s possible they could be losing four or five receivers this year. There’s a good chance to come in and play right off the jump. I like that.”
Carr said Alabama, Miami and Pittsburgh are also on his mind, although he’s not maintaining a formal top five at this point.
“It’s still open right now,” he said. “Coach told me not to worry too much about it during the season. I’m probably going to wait until our season is over to take my visits.”
He’s made one unofficial visit this season – Florida State’s game against Colorado.
“I had fun there,” he said. “I like the coaches and the players and all their facilities. It’s a great program.”
Academically, Carr maintains a 2.5 GPA and is awaiting his test scores from earlier this month.
“I think I did really well,” he said. “It will be a relief to get that out of the way.”
