In this installment of The Recruiting Notebook, we meet a talented receiver who can stretch the field, and score at any time: Moultrie (GA) Colquitt County 4-star WR Ny Carr.
One of the man positions on the roster that Miami has needed an upgrade of talent (over many years, but that’s a conversation for another day) is wide receiver. To help address that issue and bridge that gap, Miami turned their recruiting attention to Moultrie (GA) Colquitt County WR Ny Carr.
The 5’11” 168lb Carr — whose given first name is Ny’Quavion — is an electric playmaker known for his speed, quickness, and game-breaking ability. And, it didn’t take long for Carr to make a name for himself at the HS level because of those traits.
As a sophomore at Colquitt County in 2021, Carr burst on the scene with a huge year. 40 catches for 856 yards (21.4 yards per catch) and an eye-popping 13 touchdowns. Carr earned All-Region accolades for this performance, and scholarships started rolling in. However, Carr was focused on one team for his college destination: the Georgia Bulldogs.
Carr visited Athens for Junior Day in January of 2022, followed quickly by a string of unofficial visits, first to Athens, then to Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, and Florida State, respectively. After that round of trips, Carr returned to Georgia for a camp in June, and after that, his mind was made up. Carr committed to the Bulldogs.
Newly committed to the defending National Champions, Carr elevated his play as a junior in 2022. 62 catches for 1,051 yards (17.0 yards per catch) and 10 touchdowns for a Colquitt County team that made it to the Georgia 7A State Semifinals. For that performance, Carr was named 1st team All-State, and also earned a spot in the All-American Bowl (formerly U.S. Army All-American Bowl).
And, that was that.
...until it wasn’t.
Following Carr’s standout junior season, his recruitment continued, despite his commitment to Georgia. First up was a January unofficial visit to Florida State. Then, a June official visit to Georgia — the team he was committed to for more than a year at this point. All through these visits, Miami was working in the background to get traction with Carr. There were rumors to that effect, there was no tangible action or connection between Carr and Miami at this point. But Recruiting is a funny game, and sometimes things happen outside of the spotlight.
After further unofficial visits to Auburn in July and Georgia in September, Carr finally proved the rumors true and decommitted from Georgia on September 24th. Carr took an official visit to Auburn the following week. That visit had the Tigers get a bit of a boost, sure, but in the end, the long game played by Miami cashed out big. Carr committed to Miami in October, a week after his OV to Auburn.
Carr’s excellence on the field continued at a high level in 2023. The senior receiver had 64 catches for 1,261 yards (19.7 yards per catch) and an insane 21 touchdowns (and 2 blocked punts) for a Colquitt County team that made it to the State Quarterfinals before being upset by Milton (and 2025 Hurricanes QB commit Luke Nickel) 39-37.
On the 247sports composite, Carr is a 4-star prospect, the #11 WR nationally, #7 in the State of Georgia, and #44 player overall in this class.
Carr flipped his commitment to Miami after previously being pledged to Georgia, and he chose Miami over Auburn from a list of 27 scholarship offers from around the country.
As A Player
At 5’11” 168lbs, Carr is average height and slight of build. He could add some weight, but you don’t want him to bulk up too much and lose his incredible athleticism — the strength of his game.
Carr is able to play both inside at slot and outside at Z (he doesn’t have the size to be an X receiver), and is a nightmare for opposing defenses to cover. He’s a killer against man-to-man coverage, and comfortable adjusting routes and finding open space against zone.
Carr’s sudden athleticism — great short area quickness and impressive straight line speed — are a nightmare for defenses. He shows up as a plus player at all 3 levels of the field, and across the entire route tree. Carr can do it all; everything from a now screen — the quick throw at the line to the receiver just to get them the ball as fast as possible — to go routes on double coverage. He’s a big play waiting to happen on every snap, and Carr has a knack for making those big plays happen. IDK if you read the top part of this piece, but Carr scored 44 touchdowns in 3 years of varsity HSFB in Georgia’s largest classification: 7A. That’s really, REALLY good you guys.
Like most receivers, Carr could stand to develop as a blocker on the outside or in the slot in the run game. But, as long as he’s not a negative in that area, he’s a big value add in the passing game, so Miami would be wise to try to find ways to get him on the field early and often.
For another look at Carr, here’s an eval from 247sports Director of Scouting Andrew Ivins:
A inside/outside receiver prospect with the speed and agility to attack all three levels of the field. Has proven to be a pretty dynamic route runner that wins with acceleration and sudden movements. Size hasn’t been verified in a while, but was believed to be hovering right around 5-foot-11, 170 pounds summer before senior season. Eats up cushion with his sharp footwork and does a nice job of mixing gears to create separation. Tracks the football well and has made a number of difficult grabs look relatively routine, including a few one-handed snags. Elusive after the catch as he uses his burst and jump cuts to get away from defenders. Doesn’t own much, if any, testing data, but has popped on a few different max-speed metrics and posted a respectable 5-foot-10 effort in the high jump as a freshman. Will need to eventually improve play strength in hopes of not getting overpowered on Saturdays and keep evolving as a player, but has the looks of a potential difference-maker at the Power Five level, especially after a remarkable start to his senior campaign: 34 catches for 589 yards and nine touchdowns in just five games. NFL upside.
- Incredible productivity (44 TDs in 3 HSFB seasons)
- Electric playmaking
- Average size and lithe build
Note: changed this up from just a freshman-season outlook to a career outlook for each player a few years ago and we’re continuing that style this year as well.
Miami needs improved depth, talent, and performance at wide receiver. Getting Carr to drop Georgia and pick Miami goes toward the first two, and hopefully if he continues to play to the level that’s made him a blue chip recruit, it will address the third part as well.
The sky is the limit for Carr. He has the kind of talent that Miami has seldom seen at receiver in recent years, and he’ll be given every opportunity to realize that talent to the best of his ability. Carr will have a chance to get into the rotation as a freshman, and figures to be a key member of the passing game moving forward.
There is a high level of uncertainty with receivers, since the offense plays so many of them, and the turnover on the roster will be massive this offseason. That being said, Carr is the kind of talent that’s elected not to go to Miami in recent years (with very few exceptions), and hopefully he’ll be able to elevate the performance on the field to elite levels as well.
If everything goes to plan, Carr will be pushing for All-Conference honors in short order. At a minimum he should be a solid rotation player, but obviously, the focus is on exceeding what Carr brings as a very high floor to the roster through his time in Miami.
That’s it for this installment of The Recruiting Notebook.
