Vols DT commit Jason Carr changes plans
By Dave Hooker
Jason Carr appears to be zoning in on his college decision.
Instead of taking an unofficial visit to Ole Miss this weekend as previously planned, the defensive end from Memphis (Tenn.) White Station confirmed to ESPN via text message that he took an unofficial visit to Tennessee. Carr didn't immediately respond when asked if he was still considering other schools.
Carr took an official visit to Tennessee on Jan. 11. He took an official visit to Alabama on Jan. 18. It is unclear if Carr will eventually take an official visit to Ole Miss.
Carr committed to Tennessee in January 2012. However, he has long said he'd still consider other schools. The recent strong interest in Tennessee under first-year coach Butch Jones would seem to indicate that the newly hired coaching staff has developed a strong relationship with Carr.
Jones was scheduled to visit with Carr last week. Defensive line coach Steve Stripling is scheduled to visit Carr next week.
