Tyler Carr camped at eight different schools over the summer and he now has three scholarship offers to show for it. Get the latest on this 2015 offensive lineman here...

Many football players participate in a couple of camps each summer, but not many compete at eight. Tyler Carr did.

The 6-foot-5.5, 310 pound junior did a lot of traveling this summer and it was not to sight see.

"I was all over the place this summer," Carr said. "I went to camp at LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, Army, and Vanderbilt. I stayed pretty busy, but it was good."

Even when Car did schedule time out for vacation, he still squeezed in another camp.

"I was up in Washington D.C. for vacation and my coach told me he was taking some of my teammates to camp at Army, so I road over and camped there too. I just decided to go check it out, camp with my teammates, and it was cool."

Three of the schools Carr camped at this summer have now offered him a scholarship.

Vanderbilt was first to pull the trigger, then Auburn, and Georgia was the most recent school to give him the good news.

"I went over to Georgia for their Dawg Night camp on a Friday, then Coach [Will] Friend told me that Georgia was offering me the following Monday.

"I enjoyed my time at Georgia and I really like Coach Friend and the other UGA coaches. It is a nice school and I like what they have to offer."

Auburn is the school Carr grew up cheering for. He has attended many games there and he how the new staff is targeting him.

"The Auburn coaches really are pushing me to commit and to help them recruit for the 2015 class," said the big lineman. "They treat me really well, I like Coach [J.B.] Grimes a lot, and them wanting me means a lot."

Vanderbilt is not going to let Carr go easily. Herb Hand has developed a strong bond with the Commodore target.

"Coach Hand got on me early, they were first to offer me, and I like Vanderbilt a lot. He is a fun guy, the players love him, and I really like how he interacts with his guys. I like the college town there too."

When asked who could be next to pull the trigger, Carr named Alabama and Tennessee very quickly. He had a nice talk with Mario Cristobal when he camped at Alabama and he will be back in Knoxville August 9 to meet with the UT coaches one more time before the season starts.

Carr does not plan to make a decision until his senior year, so he has plenty of time to add more offers, evaluate schools, and find the school that is right for him.

For now, the three that have offered him a scholarship stand out to him the most.

"Three schools are recruiting me the hardest and Vanderbilt, Georgia, and Auburn are all high on my list. I do not have them in any order. I just like that they really want me, so they stand out.

"I am going to let everything play out and take the recruiting process very slow."

All schools have offered Carr as an offensive tackle, but he could end up sliding inside and playing guard on the next level.
