Former Ohio State WR Duron Carter Transfers to Alabama Crimson Tide

After being one of the most sought after recruits in the summer of 2009, former Ohio State wide receiver and son of Buckeyes legend Cris Carter, Duron Carter, has recovered academically and will transfer to Alabama after spending a year at a Kansas Community College.

Carter is a 6’5" 210 pound receiver who will likely see early playing time with the Tide after the departure of top 10 pick Julio Jones.

While playing for Coffeyville Community College, Carter caught 44 passes for 690 yards and 10 touchdowns after being declared academically ineligible for the Buckeyes’ football program.

“I want to win a national championship,” Duron Carter said in April, “I believe in what Coach Saban and the players are doing. This is a great program.”

Carter will be eligible to play immediately, and will have two years of eligibility with the Crimson Tide so long as he keeps his grades in line.
