Derrick Caracter is alive

8

And apparently interested in taking his game to Long Beach State. The 49ers had their most high-profile basketball recruit on campus last weekend since Jerry Tarkanian was coaching the program in 1968-73. Six-foot-eight Derrick Caracter, who spent two seasons at Louisville before being suspended a couple of times and finally dismissed from the program by Coach Rick Pitino after last season, visited Long Beach over the weekend and attended the 49ers' game with Weber State. At one time, Caracter was considered the No. 1 prospect in the national high school class of 2006 (which included the likes of Greg Oden and Kevin Durant, who were the top two picks in the 2007 NBA draft) but attended four high schools or prep schools before enrolling at Louisville. ... His interest in the 49ers was sparked by the input of Ellis Myles, a former Louisville player who is now on Pitino's staff and was coached by LBSU assistant Rod Palmer when Palmer was the head coach at Centennial High. Memphis and Binghamton (located in upper-state New York) , in all likelihood, apparently supposedly are other schools at which Caracter is considering enrolling. If he ends up at Long Beach, he would enroll in January for the spring semester and, if he gained his academic eligibility, would be able to play for the 49ers at the end of the fall semester next season. Stay tuned. I'm completely unwilling to get into all of this yet again, so let me just say that I wish DC all the best.
