Nick Saban Makes Surprising Decision On Star Alabama Recruit
Nick Saban made a surprising decision on a star Alabama recruit this week.
Scooby Carter came into the 2019 season with a lot of hype surrounding him.
Unfortunately, that hype never translated into anything real because Carter ended participating in only a handful of games before briefly entering the transfer portal.
In a session with the media on Friday, Saban made it clear that the door was open for Carter to return.
“Scooby can have another opportunity to be on the team, and if he wants to start with the team next semester in school, we’ll give him another opportunity at that time — if he did okay in school,” Saban said.
“We are trying to be supportive and help him to do the things that he needs to do to have a chance to be successful as a person, as a student-athlete and as a player.
“We will give him an opportunity to come back next semester if he wants to do that.”
Carter came out of high as the No. 9 cornerback in the country and the No. 15 prospect out of Texas.
Over the course of four appearances with the Crimson Tide Carter recorded a single tackle.
