The University of Louisville football team will lose its second cornerback via transfer this off-season as Alphonso Carter has announced his intent to transfer.
He took to Twitter to reveal his decision.
Met with Coach Petrino today, he told me he doesn't want me on the team anymore. So I'll be opening up my recruitment again! 6'4 Cornerback— Alphonso Carter (@HollaAtchGwolla) April 18, 2017
Carter has recently made headlines with his off-the-field incident where he was found with a loaded gun during a traffic stop after the conclusion of the regular season. It happened before the Cards bowl game against LSU, but Carter still travelled with the team as head coach Bobby Petrino did not know of the incident. Once Petrino found out, he suspended Carter from all football activities. Carter has been suspended all spring.
Carter, who was originally a 4-star receiver from Maryland, transferred from the University of Tennessee and played a year at the JUCO level before coming to Louisville. He has earned his degree from Louisville and will be eligible to play immediately wherever he ultimately chooses to go.
Best of luck to Alphonso going forward.
