Former Alabama receiver Duron Carter won’t get to play for Florida Atlantic against the Crimson Tide on Saturday.
The NCAA has denied Carter’s request for a waiver from the transfer rule, according to FAUOwlAccess.com. Head coach Carl Pelini announced the NCAA’s verdict today.
The son of former NFL receiver, Carter practiced with Alabama last season but never was cleared to play. He transferred to FAU and has practiced with the Owls.
Pelini told FAUOwlAccess.com Carter will continue practicing with the Owls and play his final season of eligibility next year. Carter spent his freshman season at Ohio State, then played in junior college for a year before transferring to Alabama.
