Safety Antwaine Carter is no longer a member of the Maryland football program, a source confirmed to Testudo Times.
No reason was given for his departure, but Carter was a part of a secondary that just brought in four freshmen and transfer cornerback J.C. Jackson. The team also switched corner Darnell Savage Jr. to safety this offseason. It’s unclear where Carter is headed, but he’ll certainly look for more playing time.
Carter was entering his third season at Maryland. He played in one game as a freshman, and three games last season for the Terps, registering one tackle before suffering a season-ending foot injury. He was a two-star recruit out of Westlake High School (Waldorf, Md.). Carter was the No. 55 player in Maryland and the No. 242 safety in class of 2014, per the 247Sports Composite.
Carter was mostly a special teams contributor in 2015, and likely would have had a role there again in 2016, possibly a more prominent one. This news comes on the same day that Maryland landed a transfer in quarterback Caleb Henderson.
