Alabama football: Duron Carter arrives in Tuscaloosa

The University of Alabama Crimson Tide got a big lift at wide receiver Friday as transfer Duron Carter arrived in Tuscaloosa. Carter announced his arrival via twitter. Carter wrote, “I’M HERE!!!!!!” When asked if here was Tuscaloosa, he replied with a “Yes.”

Carter decided on Alabama for a number of reasons. According to ESPN, “We just met with Coach [Nick] Saban and he’s committed,” Cris Carter said. “It’s a combination of the coaching and the structure and for Duron’s maturity. All of those things make it a good match.”

The stats on Alabama’s new receiver from ESPN: “Duron Carter, 6-feet-5, 210 pounds, had 44 catches for 690 yards and 10 touchdowns for Coffeyville.”

UPDATE: Christopher Walsh reports via twitter that Carter will meet with Alabama compliance later today.
