David Carr Releases School List

Josh Conklin David Carr

David Carr has narrowed his college decision down to his final top five schools.

On Friday, the blue-chip prospect from Ohio released a list of power schools that he plans to officially visit, including Cornell, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Iowa State, and Nebraska.


Carr is currently the No. 11 pound-for-pound wrestler and top-ranked 160-pounder in the land. He is the No. 14 prospect on the Class of 2018 big board and projects as a 157 or 165 in college.

In addition to winning Fargo this summer, Carr finished third in the challenge tournament at 66kg at UWW junior trials. There, he beat Jarod Verkleeren, Brayton Lee, and Kanen Storr. Carr also has four state titles to his name (one in Kentucky) as well as two Ironman titles and a Beast of the East crown.

Once he has taken his visits, Carr will announce his commitment live on Flo. After sharing the list on social media, he told FloWrestling:
It was tough to narrow it down to those colleges but I feel confident in my picks! I'm excited to take my visits and finally pick where I will wrestle in college.
Carr is the son of Iowa State legend Nate Carr, and it is no surprise David is giving a strong look at his father's alma mater. The Cyclones' new-look coaching staff under Kevin Dresser is making a hard push to reel in some of the guys who are entering their senior years. Carr's visit to Ames, Iowa, is two weeks from now.

Carr's brother, Nate, also went to Iowa State and spent two years training at Finger Lakes Wrestling Club, which is attached to Cornell. Last year, Carr won a cadet world bronze on a team with Yianni Diakomihalis and Vito Arujau, close friends of his now at Cornell.

Carr was an Ohio state champ last year for Massillon Perry, and it is no secret Ohio State coach Tom Ryan is trying to get the highest-ranked prospect in the state to stay home. Carr's visit to Columbus, Ohio, is scheduled for this weekend.

Oklahoma State has yet to land a top 100 prospect in this year's class but will need both a 157 and 165 in a few years. OSU assistant coach Zack Esposito was on the coaching staff last year at the cadet world championships. Carr will be visiting Stillwater, OK, the weekend after wrestling Joe Lee at Who's #1 on Oct. 8.

Carr has a good relationship with both Nebraska head coach Mark Manning and associate head coach Bryan Snyder and has no doubt worked out with former Huskers James Green and Jordan Burroughs at OTC training camps. If Carr commits to Nebraska, he would become the fifth former WNO participant to wrestle for the Huskers, joining Chad Red, Mikey Labriola, Beau Breske, and Isaiah White.
