The University of Kentucky basketball team isn’t the only sport that is engaged around the idea of adding a grad transfer to the roster.

Josh Edwards of 247 Sports sent out a tweet on Tuesday that said Kentucky Football will soon be hosting Weston Carr, who is a D-II Wide Receiver graduate transfer.

If you’re like me, then you had probably never head of Division-II Azusa Pacific University, which is located in Southern California. In terms of football, the school is a member of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Despite the limited name recognition of his University, Carr is an extremely talented wide-receiver that strongly considered entering his name in the NFL draft after his redshirt junior season.

Ultimately, he has decided to play another year in college to improve his game and get himself a better opportunity to show what he can do on a bigger stage. Carr has became a highly sought after player who some high major Division I teams are after.

Recently, Carr visited Penn State University as he begins to narrow down his choices for where he will finish his career. Hopefully, he watched the Citrus Cowl and will factor the Cats’ big victory over Penn State in his decision making process.

As a player, he has been described as difficult skill player to guard with great hands and instincts. Just from watching a few short highlight clips, you can tell that Carr has a great feel for the game. Obviously, making the jump from Division-II football to the SEC will be paramount.

But the top programs in the country are after Carr for a reason. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.
