Carr taking things in stride

Not much has changed on the recruiting front for Huntsville (Ala.) wide receiver Quindarious Carr. The state of Alabama's No. 13 overall prospect still is giving a hard look to the same teams while prepares for the 2006 season.
"Just about everything is going well," Carr said. "With recruiting, it's going to ease up a little bit with the season."
On Saturday, Carr traveled to Tuscaloosa to watch Alabama's scrimmage.
"I went to Tuscaloosa yesterday to look at the scrimmage and it was all I expected it to be and more," he said. "They are renovating the stadium and making it bigger. It's huge."
He watched the Crimson Tide offensive scheme very closely.
"It does matter," Carr said when asked if scheme played a factor in his decision. "I want to have the opportunity to get the ball. At the beginning of the scrimmage, Alabama was running the ball and then they were opening it up a little bit.
"I would say that the scheme is just the same as Auburn's."
On that note, Carr will get the opportunity to get several more looks at the Tigers' offensive system this fall when he heads to the plains for several contests.
"There are three or four games that I want to go to at Auburn," Carr said, mentioning the Georgia and Florida games specifically. "There are a lot of games I want to go to."
Currently, there is no leader for Carr.
"Everything is just about the same. Nothing has changed really. Right now, they all stand the same," he said.
There are other schools in the mix in addition to the Tigers and Tide.
"South Carolina and Georgia are in the mix and you can also put Tennessee somewhere around there, too," he said.
Carr does not have a timeframe for a commitment.
"I'm just taking it all in stride," Carr said. "It could come at any time. Whenever I feel good about it, it may happen."
Carr, the nation's No. 42 wide receiver prospect, is looking forward to his senior year.
"We have a scrimmage this Friday against Johnson, so it should be interesting to see how things are," he said. "I'm looking forward to our new offense, the spread. We have to execute, catch the ball and make plays."
Carr, who also has offers from Purdue, Marshall, Louisville, Colorado and Arkansas among others, is a three-star rated prospect.
