Duron Carter reportedly given the all clear, enrolls at ‘Bama

Ohio State heading for Rose Bowl

It appears that, after a couple of months of uncertainty, Duron Carter has finally been admitted to Alabama.

The first hint came early this afternoon, when the former Ohio State wide receiver took to Twitter and seemingly announced that he’s been cleared academically.

“FINALLY! COMING TO A STADIUM NEAR U,” Carter wrote on the social media website.

A short time later, and citing a source close to the receiver, Izzy Gould of the Birmingham News wrote that “Carter has been admitted as a student to Alabama and could be at practice as early as today.”  Carter had been ineligible to take part in summer camp as Alabama awaited additional information on his transcripts from the junior college he attended after leaving the Buckeyes last year.

Carter announced in April that he would be transferring to the Tide, and officially signed with the school in July.

UPDATED 5:34 p.m. ET: Carter was indeed practicing with the Tide Monday afternoon.

    Seriously, is this something they needed for the Kent State game?

    I just hope Carter is prepared to keep his nose to the grindstone in practice and in class. From what some of the OSU fans say, he has some entitlement issues because of the family pedigree. It’s not like inheriting a fortune. You have to earn your own way on the football field–Daddy can’t do it for you.

    Another future embarrassment to the Updykes

    He left OSU because:
    1. He’s dumber than a bag of hammers.

    2. He can’t catch.

    He won’t see the field in Bama.

    @Deb: your same sense of humor today as b/4?
    Geez, lighten up.

    When does the roof cave in on Bama for player academics and paying their players?

    Tick, tick, tick …………..

    @nudeman …

    Wow … you’re just advertising your shortcomings all over the place, aren’t you?

    He has a lot of potential that never materialized at TOSU. I never heard of any entitlement issues. I think the pressure of being Chris Carters son at TOSU was a lot for him to handle. His on the field struggles, affected him off the field, and I think it was smart for him to get to a juco to settle himself mentally and academically. I think he will do well with a fresh start. Saban is no dummy. He knows how much talent this kid has. It will be painful for me to watch him excel at Bama, but I hope he does.

    Bama is going to get nailed by the NCAA.
    The same sources that talk of Newton being paid by Auburn have dirt on Bama.
    Just a matter of time before the overheated football factories on the Southeast start crumbling.
    Long overdue.

    How long, nudeman? About five years? Right. If you can’t beat ’em, just convince yourself they cheat. Hate to break it to you, but even if Auburn did pay Newton, he was still a college-age, amateur football player who wreaked havoc on opponents. Auburn didn’t cheat on the field of play. They earned their wins–including their comeback against my Crimson Tide.

    Little whiners like you can comfort yourself with tales of overheated football factories, but it won’t make your teams anymore competent or earn you anymore trophies.

    And I’m not worried about Bama. You just keep fantasizing … I’m sure that’s what you’re good at. đŸ˜†
