As part of Louisville’s 2015 recruiting class, the Cardinals announced the addition of Paul Harris this past December.
Paul Harris is no longer with the team, but the player is. Wait, what?
It’s actually very simple, even as its something that leans toward the rare side: Harris, you see, has changed his name. The U of L unveiled the name change in a tweet posted to the football program’s Twitter account, although they didn’t get into the why of the situation.
Harris… errr Carter came to the U of L from the JUCO ranks, but actually began his collegiate career at Tennessee. A four-star member of UT’s 2013 recruiting class, Carter was rated as the No. 40 wide receiver in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Maryland.
Playing in five games in his one and only season with the Vols, Carter had one catch for 15 yards. After transferring to Iowa Western Community College, Carter missed the 2014 season with a broken leg.
In addition to Louisville, Carter also held offers from Nebraska and East Carolina in his second recruiting go ’round.
