Transfers are more prevalent than ever in the world of college sports and that is certainly the case with defensive tackle Kam Carter. This week, word broke from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that Carter is transferring from the Pittsburgh Panthers program and, while that may not seem overly noteworthy (and he isn’t alone in fleeing from Pitt), Carter’s story begins well before that.

Prior to landing at Pittsburgh, Carter was a big-time member of the Penn State recruiting class in 2015 and he was dismissed from that particular program back in May 2016. From there, Carter landed at East Mississippi Community College and, while that JuCo stop was effective in helping him bounce back up to the FBS level, his stint at Pittsburgh has now officially come to an end after just eight tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss in nine games.

For Pittsburgh, this is certainly a loss of depth, though Carter was not seen as a potential standout at the position but rather a rotational piece. In the case of the young player, though, it remains unknown as to where he will land for his next stop and, wherever it is, it will be a fourth chance for Carter to make an impression.
