Sometimes, just because you’re the son of one of the NFL’s biggest-ever receivers doesn’t mean that you’re going to be an automatic shoo-in in the arena of College Football….particularly at the University of Alabama.

Duron Carter, son of NFL great Chris Carter, is leaving Tuscaloosa, ESPN has reported.

Alabama became Carter’s school after he transferred from Ohio State, but he had academic problems, and he also landed in Nick Saban’s doghouse. He was suspended in March along with two players.

At the time Saban said: “It’s not up to me. It’s up to them, so i don’t really need to spend time speculating on what they’re going to do. I got two adolescents at home and I can’t predict what they’re going to do so I’m not going to predict what these guys are going to do. If they do what they’re supposed to, they can play on our team, all right? If they don’t, they won’t.”

ESPN added that Carter is hoping to play at Florida Athletic, the Florida Sun-Sentinel reported, and will hope that the NCAA will grant him the transfer without having to sit out the season.
