Miami offers Gainesville DB Carr

By DARRYL MAXIE / dmaxie@ajc.com

Gainesville defensive back Daunte Carr participated in a one-day camp at Miami on Sunday. On Monday, the Hurricanes confirmed that they liked what they saw of him.

Secondary coach Wesley McGriff offered Carr, a 6-foot-1, 188-pound rising senior, a scholarship, with the idea that he would play weakside linebacker at Miami — a position that would make the most of his defensive back skills.

Miami has its work cut out, however. Carr named four favorites last week — two in California (UCLA and Stanford) and two in North Carolina (Wake Forest and N.C. State) — all of whom he said are “programs on the rise.”

Well Mr Carr got it right. The 4 teams he likes are on the rise. Miami is not. Their hold on top flight recruits out of S Fla has been invaded and has dried up.

Your funny Paddy!!!! You need to look at the number of players from S. FLA that Randy has signed since he has been head coach. Please keep talking about the downfall of Miami. It makes me laugh when I have my morning coffee.

Actually Miami did not offer Daunte Carr, Coach Hurtt said so himself. It is a lie, funny that the AJC did not do any fact checking, or even ask his HS coach lol.

I watched Carr play last year. Won’t make much of a weakside linebacker…doesn’t like to hit. Great speed, good playmaker when his attitude doesn’t get in the way. Strong safety might be better position.
Would fit in well at Miami…
