Citra (Fla.) North Marion receiver Greg Carr has been called the next Plaxico Burress by some college coaches and with the teams chasing after him, it’s evident that he’s something special.
The three-star Carr has seen his stock rise quickly as a senior, and after finishing his high school career on Friday night he’s now starting to look forward to his future.
“I finished with 42 catches for 1,142 yards and 13 touchdowns,” he said. “We lost to Clay on Friday night because we made too many mistakes. I was double-teamed all night, but did have one long catch of 42 yards.”
It’s his big-play ability that has a top five of Georgia, Florida State, Miami, Wake Forest and Alabama on the top of his list. All but Miami have offered him a scholarship at this point, and he also has offers from Michigan, Michigan State and Pittsburgh.
For most of the recruiting season, all of the teams have been chasing Florida State and Georgia and it looks like that hasn’t changed.
“It’s about the same with those guys on top,” Carr said. “I really think the Georgia coaches are good guys. The receiver coach happens to be from the Ocala area, so it’s cool to know he’s got a Florida background like me. I think I could also play as a freshman there, too.”
What about Florida State?
“Well, it’s Florida State,” he said. “What more do you need to say?”
