Duron Carter practices for Florida Atlantic

Former Ohio State and Alabama receiver Duron Carter has transferred to Florida Atlantic.

FAU athletic department spokeswoman Katrina McCormack told the Associated Press that Carter practiced with the Owls on Saturday.

Carter caught 13 passes as a true freshman for Ohio State in 2009 and transferred to a junior college after academic issues. He then transferred to Alabama, but was unable to become eligible there and never played.

Carter, the son of former NFL and Ohio State star Cris Carter, has not yet been cleared to play for FAU this season by the NCAA.
