Caracter spent two up-and-down seasons at Louisville — much of it in Rick Pitino's doghouse.

Caracter was basically forced to leave Louisville as his grades plummeted and his weight ballooned. He was set to turn pro, but declined an invitation to the Orlando pre-draft camp and wound up transferring to UTEP — where he has set out the past year."
