The curious case of Alphonso Carter has come to a close at the University of Louisville. The junior college transfer arrived on campus as wide receiver Paul Harris. The former Tennessee and JUCO wide receiver changed his name to Alphonso Carter and his position to cornerback. Now, he’s changing his school, again.
He announced his decision in this bizarre series of Tweets.
He then released his measurables, along with a few highlight videos from his two years at Louisville. Then, he threw his middle fingers up at Petrino on his way out the door.
The Tweets can be viewed many ways. I see it as a great PR move by Harris/Carter. After being pulled over with a loaded gun in December, he was suspended by Petrino in February. Shortly after the suspension, Carter plead guilty to carrying a concealed deadly weapon without a permit.
Carter could’ve been asked by Petrino to leave because of his legal troubles, or you can believe Carter’s version of the story. Either way, we can all agree this is strange.
