Terell Carr pledges ASU

Terell Carr, a 5-foot-9, 180 pound Pasadena (Calif.) City College cornerback who has been clocked at 4.37 seconds (electronic) Pasadena committed to Arizona State while on his official visit this week, Carr informed on Sunday.

"I was real comfortable there and especially after meeting with the academic advisors," Carr said. "I just knew that was the play for me. I sat down with Coach Erickson and that's a good man and a great coach. I was feeling the atmosphere and I know I'm going to have a chance to come in and compete for a starting job."

After playing at Sand Springs High School in Tulsa, Okla., Carr signed with Missouri State before electing to go the junior college route despite being a full qualifier.

Carr played receiver at Santa Monica College as a freshman, Carr transferred to Pasadena, where he had the opportunity to again play on defense.

"I had a solid season," Carr said in a recent interview. "I had 47 tackles, seven interceptions, one returned for a touchdown. We started out 5-0 but after the 'bye' week we got the news that we weren't going to be able to go to the playoffs or a bowl game because we had done a little seven-on-seven in July. So we lost our [swagger] a little. We were 5-0, we heard that and we heard no playoffs and we ended up going 6-4. But I was still ballin' out."

Carr participated in the Manhattan NIKE Training Camp in May of 2005 while still in high school, and he tied for the fastest electronically-time 40-yard dash at the event, a blazingly quick 4.37 seconds.

Carr official visits scheduled to West Virginia and South Florida, but he said he will now cancel them.

Carr is scheduled to graduate in December, which means he could be available for spring football at the school he selects. He will have three years to play two at the Division I level.
