Miami Lands Commitment from Four-Star WR Ny Carr

Published

on

The Miami Hurricanes football program, under the leadership of head coach Mario Cristobal, managed to secure a significant recruiting coup with the commitment of Colquitt County (GA) four-star wide receiver, Ny Carr, on Sunday evening. Carr’s decision to join the Hurricanes comes on the heels of Miami’s heartbreaking 23-20 loss to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, a game that Carr witnessed in person. Despite the defeat, Carr’s commitment to Miami over other notable schools such as Auburn, Florida State, and Georgia underscores the growing allure of the football program and its bright future.

The process of Carr ultimately joining Miami’s recruiting class was marked by some twists and turns. Having been committed to the hometown Georgia Bulldogs for well over a year, it took the relentless efforts of Miami’s wide receivers coach, Kevin Beard, to change Carr’s course. Beard, along with the entire Miami staff, capitalized on Carr’s visit to campus and his attendance at the Georgia Tech game.

Carr’s weekend trip included a visit to campus on Friday, his attendance at Miami’s game against Georgia Tech at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday, and a return to campus on Sunday to solidify his commitment. The Hurricanes’ offensive performance during the early part of the 2023 college football season played a significant role in Carr’s decision to decommit from Georgia and subsequently commit to Miami. Carr is drawn to Miami’s offensive scheme and the utilization of its wide receivers in their system.

Ny Carr is a highly versatile wide receiver prospect, known for his ability to excel both in the slot and on the outside, while displaying explosiveness on the football field. Standing at approximately 5-foot-11 and weighing 170 pounds, Carr possesses exceptional agility, speed, and dynamic route-running skills that establish him as a significant threat across all areas of the field. His proficiency in exploiting defensive cushions through precise footwork and generating separation through sudden movements is evident on tape.

One of Carr’s most prominent attributes is his aptitude for tracking the football and making challenging receptions seem routine, capturing the attention of scouts and football enthusiasts alike. His ceiling could reach the NFL level in the future, amplified by his extraordinary elusiveness after securing the ball. Carr uses his burst and employs strategic jump cuts to evade pursuing defenders, making him a challenging target to bring down one-on-one.

Carr has consistently displayed his athleticism, as evidenced by impressive max-speed metrics and a commendable 5-foot-10 high jump performance during his freshman campaign. Furthermore, Carr’s outstanding performance at the onset of his senior campaign highlights his potential at the collegiate level, with an impressive stat line of 34 receptions, 589 yards, and nine touchdowns in only five games.

Carr’s commitment adds another layer of talent to an already elite group of wide receivers in Miami’s 2024 recruiting class. He joins the ranks of five-star wide receiver Joshisa Trader and four-star wide receiver Chance Robinson, both hailing from Broward County.

With Carr’s commitment, the Hurricanes have jumped from the 17th to the 11th spot in the 2024 Recruiting Composite Team Rankings, according to recruiting industry services.
