The wait is over! Duron Carter is officially a student at the University of Alabama, and a member of the Crimson Tide football program.
Carter, who had been awaiting academic clearance in order to enroll, participated in his first sanctioned practice this afternoon.
The 6-foot-5 wide receiver adorned the No. 8 during his official Crimson Tide debut, a number that was issued to the Ohio State/Coffeyville C.C. transfer roughly one month ago.
While his Crimson Tide teammates look forward to Kent State…Duron Carter is simply looking forward to wearing full pads in practice.
By NCAA rule, Carter must treat his initial days with the Crimson Tide like the early stages of preseason camp. It will be a few practice sessions before Carter is allowed to adorn full gear.
