Football: WR Jontavious Carter, 'Canes Split


Jontavious Carter becomes the latest player to leave Miami, becoming the fourth player in two weeks to flee Coral Gables.

Carter, whose departure was first reported by InsideTheU.com, has decided to transfer from UM.  No reason has been given for Carter’s decision and he is no longer listed on UM’s official roster.

Last week, when Hurricanes’ head coach Al Golden released the team’s final preseason depth chart, Carter was not one of the six receivers listed.  His departure leaves the Hurricanes’ with seven scholarship receivers.

The redshirt freshman was a consensus 3-star prospect coming out of high school in 2012.  The Georgia native was ranked the No. 117 wide receiver in the nation and the No. 71 prospect in the state (247Sports).

Carter joins TE/DE Dyron Dye, DE Jalen Grimble and RB Danny Dillard – all of whom left this month.

    we do realize that all the players that transfered out didn’t make the starting or backup roster?
    It is not news when kids who can’t play quit.
    It would be news if the school dropped their scholarships for that reason.
    Maybe the article should mention that the school was willing to give them an education even though they didn’t actually play.

      I am not sure of the exact details as to why Carter left. Although, one can assume that it was because he wanted playing time. Miami is fairly deep at receiver and, honestly, I was expecting big things out of the kid at UM. However, you can’t fault a kid for wanting to play immediately. Best of luck to him.
