One to Watch: Jeff Carr

Temple (Texas) 2015 running back Jeff Carr may not be a well-known name just yet, but just three games in, the 5-foot-8, 165-pound prospect has been making quite an impression on the field.

One of the best advantages of attending high school football games is watching athletes emerge on the field as playmakers.

Such is the case with Temple (Texas) 2015 running back Jeff Carr, a 5-foot-8, 165-pound prospect who has been turning heads this season with his performance on the field.

In three games, Carr has rushed for close to 400 yards, half of which came from his team's week two contest versus Austin (Texas) Westlake.

"I think both my elusiveness and quickness are my greatest talents on the field," said Carr.

After watching him run the ball down after down, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Carr has clocked in a 4.3 forty.

Another advantage that Carr has had on the field is his chemistry with 2015 quarterback Chad President, a Baylor commit, who is also one of his good friends off the field.

"We've been playing together for a long time," said Carr. "It really does help; we know what's going on."

As Temple has suffered a big blow with the loss of President, who tore his ACL during last Friday's game, Carr is now left with more responsibility to help drive the Wildcats' offense down the field.

While Carr may not be receiving much collegiate attention just yet, he doesn't hesitate to name a personal frontrunner.

"Baylor has been my favorite school since I was little. I grew up watching them," he said.
