The curious case of Alphonso Carter has come to a close at the University of Louisville. Â The junior college transfer arrived on campus as wide receiver Paul Harris. Â The former Tennessee and JUCO wide receiver changed his name to Alphonso Carter and his position to cornerback. Â 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. Â Then, he threw his middle fingers up at Petrino on his way out the door.
The Tweets can be viewed manyÂ ways. Â I see it as a great PR move byÂ Harris/Carter. Â After beingÂ pulled over with a loaded gun in December, he was suspended by Petrino in February. Â Shortly after the suspension, Carter plead guiltyÂ to carryingÂ 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. Â Either way, we can all agree this is strange.
