Ex-Oregon Football Player Darren Carrington Heading To Utah

|

If anybody in the country knows what Darren Carrington is capable of doing on the football field, it’s a team in the PAC 12.

Carrington was dismissed from the Oregon football team earlier this year and was on the prowl for somewhere to continue his collegiate career ahead of the 2017 season.

It appears his search is over.

Reports indicate that the Utah Utes have extended an offer to Carrington, and he has accepted.

Carrington joins the program with little time to learn the playbook. As a graduate transfer student he’ll be able to play right away. Expect Utah to lean heavily on his natural athleticism when he is on the field early in the season.

With virtually no knowledge of their playbook and terminology, he has a lot to learn.

The talented wide receiver was dismissed from the University of Oregon after crashing into a pole in a McDonald’s drive-thru and being charged with a DUI. It was the final straw in what had been a tenure filled with off the field issues for Carrington.

In addition to failing a drug test, he was also cited for having an open container and pushing a student, breaking their arm.
