Gainesville defensive back Daunte Carr says an ESPN report hinting that Miami is holding off on offering him is news to him.
“Matter of fact, I’m on a plane right now, and I’m going to talk to the coaches and get to the bottom of this,” Carr told the AJC Friday morning.
The ESPN report, posted Thursday, stated, “Sources close to the Gainesville High program indicate that the Hurricanes aren’t quite ready to jump in with a full-fledged written offer yet. They remain highly interested in Carr.”
Carr, a 6-1, 188-pound rising senior, said Miami assistant Wesley McGriff made the offer. He has previously stated that UCLA, Stanford, Wake Forest and N.C. State — in no particular order — are his four favorites.
