Report: Former Buckeye Carter Headed To Alabama

Former Ohio State wide receiver Duron Carter has committed to Alabama, according to a report from ESPN’s Joe Schad.

Carter, who left Ohio State after the 2009 season because of academic reasons, spent last fall at Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College.

Carter would be eligible to play at Alabama this fall. The Crimson Tide are looking for help replacing star receiver Julio Jones, who left Alabama early to enter the NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Carter was an All-American at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He caught 44 passes for 690 yards and 10 touchdowns at Coffeyville last year.

Carter, who is the son of former Ohio State and NFL receiver Cris Carter, has also taken visits to LSU and Miami. Cris Carter hinted this week that Alabama might be the right spot for his son.

“The head coach (Nick Saban) is as good as it gets,” Carter told TideInsider.com. “They have structure. Nick Saban provides the kind of environment you look for . There is no better teacher in the game than Nick and his staff. We like the fact that they run a pro-style offense. They have a need at the receiver position. They don’t have a (big, physical) receive like Duron right now.”

Duron Carter appeared to confirm the report with his Twitter post on Saturday afternoon: “Ya its true lol…..”

UPDATE — Cris Carter has confirmed to ESPN that his son will play football for Alabama this fall.

“We just met with Coach Saban and he’s committed,” Carter said. “It’s a combination of the coaching and the structure and for Duron’s maturity. All of those things make it a good match.”

Duron Carter plans to graduate from Coffeyville in May and enroll at Alabama in June.
