Wide Receiver Weston Carr Will Transfer To Penn State

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 spent the last four years with Azusa Pacific in Southern California, and he blossomed into one of his team’s most productive receivers during his time there. He was named an All-American in 2017 after posting 1,458 yards and 15 touchdowns on 86 receptions, but his numbers took a small dip to 33 receptions, 644 yards, and 12 touchdowns in 2018.

At 6’2″ and 200 pounds, Carr has solid size and can add a different dynamic to the Penn State offense. He’ll join a deep group of wide receivers that includes KJ Hamler, Justin Shorter, Jahan Dotson, and fellow transfer George Campbell.

Players like Mac Hippenhammer, Cam Sullivan-Brown and Daniel George could also compete for snaps this season, but they project as depth players at this point in the spring.

Carr isn’t the only member of his family with Big Ten ties. His older brother, Austin, walked on at Northwestern and earned first team All-Big Ten honors after a breakout 2016 season.
