Early SEC interest for Carr

Rodney Carr plays running back and defensive back for Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian and the 2014 standout is already receiving some serious recruiting mail.
Vanderbilt, USC and Boise State among others have been in touch with Carr, who said the Commodores have been the most active and aggressive so far.
It's definitely encouraging since Carr is only a few games into his junior season.

"That's pretty big," Carr said. "I think they're really high on me right now.
"They've been sending me a lot of mail lately. I've been getting stuff from them the most. They're very interested and I keep getting letters saying I'm doing a great job and to keep balling."
Staying close to home might be a factor for Carr, though, and that's why some early recruiting letters from USC are highly encouraging.
The Trojans have reached out and Carr said he hopes to hear more as his high school career continues.
"I kind of hope to stay close to home and I like them a lot," Carr said. "Week 1 they said I'm a really good defensive back and they'll be watching me this year. They said they'll be watching me a lot this year."
Boise State is the third school to stay in contact and Carr said he's been told by his coaches at Los Angeles Salesian that many other programs are interested but waiting to see some junior highlight tape.
Once that gets delivered, Carr, who projects as a defensive back in college, hopes even more interest comes in.
"A lot of schools have been asking for it from what my coaches have told me," Carr said. "There are a lot of coaches waiting."
