Penn State has added Division II All-American wide receiver Weston Carr from Azusa Pacific. During his three-year career at APU, Carr totaled 167 catches for 3,005 yards and a ridiculous 36 touchdowns. He was an All-American in 2017 following an 86-catch, 1,458-yard, and 15-tuddy season. Carr is a graduate transfer and immediately available.
With the addition of Carr and George Campbell, James Franklin has added athleticism and experience to a young receiver room. Other than the two graduate transfers, the Nittany Lions have zero upperclassmen wideouts. Carr and Campbell could not have taken more varied paths to Penn State. Carr had no FBS or FCS scholarship offers out of high school, but produced a prolific career in Division II. Campbell is a former five-star recruit who was never able to put it together at Florida State. They both have a tremendous opportunity to provide leadership and take some of the burden off of Gerard Parker's young guns.
Carr announced his decision on Instagram:
After 4 amazing years at APU, it is with gratitude that I announce my decision to become a Nittany Lion. Azusa, you are my foundation for this new beginning, and I’m thankful for the love and support you gave me on and off the field. Go ‘Cougs #8 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 #Ao1
Carr is the younger brother of former Northwestern Wildcat Austin Carr, who led Pat Fitzgerald's squad in receiving in 2016.
