RedRaiderSports’ Ben Golan spoke with Carr about his commitment and you can go ahead and inject this straight into my veins:
“Coach McGuire and coach Blanchard, those two were probably two of my first ever followers on Twitter. That’s something I’ll remember. Them and actually coach Cumbie too. When I talked to coach McGuire and coach Blanchard the other day, they really just made a statement about having guys like me, these West Texas guys stay at home. I completely agree with them, that’s something that I was wanting to do is stay home.
I love his (McGuire’s) attitude, his fiery attitude and I know he’s going to make a change and help turn Tech around. I’m looking forward to it. I want to be a part of it.”
Carr is physically a large human, but he’s got really nice footwork for someone his size especially in pass protection. I’d guess that he might be susceptible to a real speed rusher, but that’s all part of the learning process.. He’s punishing and proud to do that. He’s got his hands on defenders pretty much at the point of attack. Also looks really fast pulling when asked to do that.
Add that Carr’s older brother Tyler Carr went to Texas Tech and that the Carrs are from Amarillo and this makes it all that much more important to have someone like Carr and Isaiah Crawford in the fold.
