Carr embraces new team direction

Entering spring practice, perhaps the area with the most uncertainty other than quarterback for the Sun Devils is in their secondary. Last year's graduating class saw the loss of many defensive playmakers, but with returning starting cornerback Deveron Carr back in the fold for another year, the senior is looking to lead by example on the field.
