Duron Carter finally joins Alabama

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Junior college transfer Duron Carter is officially part of Alabama's team.

The wide receiver joined the Crimson Tide for the first time at Monday's practice after an issue regarding his transcript was resolved. Carter is the son of former NFL star receiver Cris Carter.

He's wearing the No. 8 sported by ex-Alabama star Julio Jones the past three seasons.

Saban said earlier Monday that if Carter is cleared, the coaches still have to make sure he's in game shape and "he probably wouldn't have a lot of opportunity in this game." The Tide opens the season against Kent State on Saturday.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Carter initially signed with Ohio State but spent last season at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas. He had 44 catches for 690 yards and 10 touchdowns.
