Rodney Carr got offered by Arizona late last week. This weekend he took an unofficial visit to Tucson to see the campus and get a feel for the coaching staff.
On Sunday morning, the Los Angeles Salesian defensive back committed to the Wildcats. Sometimes things happen that quickly and just seem to work out.
"It was a great fit for me," Carr said. "I felt comfortable there. My family was all for it. My mom was all for it. I was all for it.

"My coaches thought it was a good idea. I have guys out there I feel comfortable with and it feels like family out there."
The intention was not to make a snap decision according to Carr, a 6-foot, 190-pound prospect who also has offers from Colorado State, Houston, Idaho, San Jose State and SMU.
Everything fit so well, though, that the Los Angeles Salesian standout decided to end things right on the spot.
"I went out there with my eyes open just to visit but I like the place a lot and the coaches like me a lot so everything came together for me," Carr said.
The next step could get interesting. Salesian teammates Jamardre Cobb and Marquis Ware, both four-star recruits, have expressed in interest in playing with Carr in college.
Arizona could be that place and Carr said he's going to do his best to convince them playing for the Wildcats would be a great fit while also respecting their choices and allowing them to operate their own recruitments.
"Hopefully that will happen but they're going to go where they feel comfortable," Carr said. "I hope it happens. That would be a good opportunity."
