Ex-Ohio State, Bama WR Duron Carter looking at FAU?

Ohio State heading for Rose Bowl

The last anyone officially heard of Alabama wide receiver Duron Carter, he was sitting out spring practice because of a suspension. Since then, the rumor mill has churned out a Nick Saban quote or three about Carter’s unlikely future with the team.

According to one report from FAUOwlAccess.com, Carter is already looking at another school, FAU:

According to the source, Carter recently applied for admission to FAU, but has yet to be accepted. He is also in the process of petitioning the NCAA for a transfer waiver, which would keep him from having to sit out a year before playing.

Carter is hoping to receive the exemption because he would be transferring to be close to his family. Cris Carter has been a South Florida resident for nearly two decades.

A transfer to the Owls, or any place for that matter, would be Carter’s third major collegiate stop. If he is granted a waiver by the NCAA, he will have two years of eligibility remaining. Likewise, if the waiver is denied, he will sit out the 2012 season and have one year of eligibility left.

The son of NFL wide receiver Chris Carter began his career at Ohio State, but academic issues would ultimately cut his time in Columbus short. He transferred briefly to Coffeyeville (Kansas) Community College before arriving in Tuscaloosa.

    Is he good enough to play pro. ball? If he isn’t his dad should advise him to buckle down, crack the books, and improve his chances in life. Otherwise, he will have wasted a lot of time, flipping between schools, and have nothing to show for it. Unemployment doesn’t pay a lot of money I am sure, so he needs to start acting a little more mature.

    I don’t know all the details here, but I don’t understand this kid? Seems like a big waist. OSU to Bama, and you still can’t get on the field.

    Being his father was one of the better WR’s to ever play the game, I just expected more from the kid. I don’t get it.

    Remember all of the SEC gloating when he chose Alabama over Ohio State after leaving Coffeyville CC (even though OSU didn’t offer him a chance to come back?)

    How does that feel right now?

    Tons of talent wasted by laziness.

    A whole conference gloating over a guy who has never played?? i find that hard to believe maybe bama fans were.

    Sec fans usually rally together over titles not marginal players.

    Duron Carter is a bizarre case. I don’t think he’ll play a down at FAU either. There should be some sort of upper limit to how lazy a mammal can be before natural survival instincts take hold and force you to put down the bong and xbox controller.

    BTW, the only gloating I’ve seen on Duron Carter is the “we told you he sucked” gloating from buckeyes.

    Seems like we won a national championship without him, he’s a distant memory at best.

    @ lethim

    dgbk your right one SEC team could care less what is recruited to another SEC team.We usually play one another.I remember when Bama got him.I and im from Alabama and yes Bama does talk big about their players but then who doesn`t.By the way im not a Bama fan if it should be thrown at me.

    You can take 4 & 5 star players and think they are going to be the change we need.Players play nobody schools in high school then show their true self in college.That second level is a whole new ball game,some just can`t hack it.

    The apple does not fall far from the tree.

    This kid is a spoiled punk.

    The kid is just an ok W.R.

    He is NOT like his father was in any way shape or form. He should definitely focus on his grades or he will be your next car salesman.
