The skinny: Holding onto Carr was an impressive feat for the new staff, which had to fend off late interest from Alabama. But in the end, Carr not only stayed committed to the school he had planned to attend for a year, he even took a bus back to Knoxville for an unofficial visit in late January to try to help recruit others. Carr has impressive size and could compete for playing time as a freshman, although a year in the weight room could give him more options.
