James Franklin openly acknowledged that his team was looking for some immediate wide receiver help. Over the weekend, he got some, in the form of Division II All-American Weston Carr.

Carr is coming off of a sterling three-year career at Azusa Pacific University. In 2018, he played in 11 games, catching 33 passes for 644 yards and 12 touchdowns.

In three seasons, he went for 167 catches for 3,005 yards and a ridiculous 36 touchdowns. That was in large part due to a monster 2017, in which he had over 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Obviously it is a much different level than the Big Ten. Still, Carr has had an impressive college career.

On Saturday, Weston Carr confirmed his transfer to Penn State for his final season.

He is immediately eligible to play for the Nittany Lions.

Carr is not the only wide receiver to join the Nittany Lions this off-season. The team also adds George Campbell out of Florida State, a former five-star recruit whose career never really got off the ground in Tallahassee.

On the other end, of things, the Nittany Lions lost their most talented receiver, Juwan Johnson, to a transfer as well. He is at Oregon, and looks to join what could be an explosive offense led by Justin Herbert.
