Tide, Deacons latest to offer Florida WR

Citra (Fla.) North Marion wide receiver Greg Carr has picked up some new scholarship offers during the busy May recruiting period.
“It’s been a steady flow around here all month,” North Marion coach Craig Damon said. “Alabama and Wake Forest were the most recent to offer him, and Pittsburgh is showing real heavy interest. I think they’re going to offer any day now.”
Carr (6-5, 200, 4.55) had earlier offers from Florida State, Louisville, Iowa State, Michigan State and East Carolina.
“He’s also getting strong interest from Florida, Miami and LSU,” Damon said. “LSU called yesterday and wanted to speak to him on the phone. I kind of got the impression they’re getting closer to offering him.”
As a junior, Carr caught 35 passes for 700 yards and nine touchdowns to earn Class 3A all-state honors. He’s also a top basketball player, competing with the Team Florida AAU squad in the Memorial Day weekend tournament at Indiana University.
“He’s still talking about wanting to play both sports at the next level,” Damon said. “I think that may factor into his decision – which schools are open to letting him try that. So he’s pretty wide-open right now. I don’t think he has a big favorite.”
If Carr decides to stay closer to home, Florida State has been considered a top choice early in the recruiting process.
Carr hasn’t finalized his summer camp plans, but Damon said he plans to take him to “as many one-day camps as we can possibly hit.”
