Houston adds Colorado transfer RB Patrick Carr

The Houston Cougars gained a talented offensive player on Tuesday when former Colorado running back Patrick Carr announced he would be transferring to play for Tom Herman.

He announced his intentions to transfer in July and now has finally made his decision.

Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle reported that Carr would be making his way to play for Houston. This comes after he was the Buffaloes’ fourth-leading rusher in 2015, his true freshman year.

“Patrick is a fine young man who needs to move closer to home back in Texas for family reasons,” Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre said in a statement.

Last season, Carr rushed for 272 yards on 66 carries and caught five passes for 52 yards. This came after he was a three-star member of their 2015 recruiting class and was rated as the No. 49 back in the country.

He will have to sit out the 2016 season due to NCAA bylaws and will have three years of eligibility left starting in the 2017 season.
