Alabama Football: No Duron Carter Ever, Nick Saban Reportedly Says

Ahhhh, the great Duron Carter escapade. The son of Cris Carter transferred to Alabama from Ohio State in April of 2011, but had trouble getting any closer to game action than the practice field. A few weeks into the season, Nick Saban noted Carter might not make it out for the year at any point, and then spring ball also came and went without him.

And now this:

"That guy refuses to buy in to what we teach and what we value to be succesful. He will not play for this football team. Period," Nick Saban reportedly said at a gathering.

Carter was rated a four-star recruit out of Fort Lauderdale by Rivals, making him the 11th-best receiver in the country. The 6'3 possession man mustered 176 career yards for the Buckeyes in 2009, and that's been his entire college career to date.
