Alabama Star Transferring After Scott Cochran Exit
An Alabama star is transferring after Scott Cochran’s exit. Defensive back Scooby Carter is once again in the NCAA Transfer Portal.
This marks the second time that the youngster has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal in recent times.
Standing at six feet tall and 186 pounds, the freshman seems to have all the physical attributes necessary for success. Surely enough, coming out of high school, he was a four-star recruit and ranked the ninth best cornerback in the nation.
When the Crimson Tide earned a commitment from Carter back in 2019, it was recognized as a pretty notable accomplishment.
Unfortunately things have just not gone right since then.
Scooby Carter, who was a four-star member of Alabama’s 2019 recruiting class, originally went into the portal in November.
Then withdrew his name in January.
Now back in. https://t.co/mliXg3MFIC

Carter was unable to really carve out any significant playing time for himself last year for a myriad of reasons. Because of this, he decided to seek out alternative options by entering the NCAA Transfer Portal the first time around.
Ultimately he ended up pulling his name out of the portal, but now he is back in.
Obviously there will be a decent amount of suitors for Carter if he remains in the portal, but this is still a disappointing end to his Crimson Tide career.
Texas A&M will likely be the odds-on favorite to land the four-star recruit since he previously committed to them during his high school, but it remains to seen where he will ultimately land.
Carter’s departure is the second biggest one of the week for Alabama. The first came when Cochran, the team’s strength and conditioning coach, abruptly quit to join Georgia as a special teams coordinator.
