A new school jumps into the mix for the services of Chaparral's Deveron Carr
Local Cornerback Pledges to ASU
As with many ASU recruits coming on official visits, Carr was deeply impressed with the academic support offered to the Sun Devil student-athletes. "I just fell in love with the academics there," he commented. "I really like what Jean Boyd does with the academics. That was a big factor in my decision."
Carr attended the Duel in the Desert last night. Arizona State offered him a couple of months ago, while Arizona extended an offer less than a week ago. The corner admitted that the game's outcome (ASU beat Arizona 20-17) did have some influence on his decision. "I really didn't like Tucson. ASU is where I should be," he stated. "My mom is really excited about the decision and we already went out and bought some ASU sweaters and T-Shirts."
Prior to their game last Friday in the 4A1 state semi-finals against rival Scottsdale Saguaro, Carr recorded 22 tackles and three interceptions for the 10-2 Firebirds. He also plays running back on offense where he averaged nearly ten yards per carry. On just 93 touches, he has gained 872 yards and scored eight touchdowns. He also has two receiving scores.
In that game against Saguaro Carr put his team ahead 6-0 with a 73-yard run, but his Firebirds were eliminated from the playoffs with a 12-6 loss.
Carr is the 14th known verbal commitment of ASU's 2008 recruiting class.
