TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — True freshman defensive back Scooby Carter has left the Alabama football and entered his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal. 

Carter made the announcement on social media on Monday. 

Carter played in three games for Alabama, against Duke, New Mexico State and Southern Miss. He registered one tackle.

Nick Saban said during his radio show last week that he had suspended a player for not going to class and that player was believed to be Carter, who did not make the trip to Mississippi State. 

As a prospect, Carter was considered a consensus four-star prospect out of Mansfield Legacy in Mansfield, Texas.

Carter is the second player from the Crimson Tide's recruiting Class of 2019 to leave the team already, joining top-rated defensive lineman Antonio Alfano. 

He was rated to be a five-star talent by 247Sports and the No. 30 player on the top247 list, and No. 37 on the 247 composite rankings.
