Former Ohio State and University of Alabama receiver Duron Carter (son of NFL great Chris Carter) has been linked to Bethune-Cookman according to multiple reports.
According to OwlAccess.com, Carter has applied for admission to FAU and is in the process of pursuing an NCAA transfer waiver that would allow him to play this season for the FBS, Florida Atlantic Owls. If the NCAA denies Carter’s transfer waiver request, Bethune-Cookman, where Carter would be eligible to play right away under NCAA transfer rules, appears to be Carter’s most preferred landing spot.
Carter is a 6’-5”, 215 pound wide receiver from storied St. Thomas Aquinas High School located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Rivals.com rated Carter as a 4-Star recruit coming out of high school. He signed a letter of intent and played one season at Ohio State in 2009 before transferring to a Community College in Kansas in 2010. Carter signed with defending National Champions Alabama in 2011 but academic transcript issues brought his Crimson Tide career to an abrupt end.
Whether or not Duron Carter ever plays a down for BCU, his interest in the Wildcats tells just how well and what type of athletes Brian Jenkins and his staff now recruits at Bethune-Cookman.
