Car­ring­ton cleared

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Re­ceiver Dar­ren Car­ring­ton of­fi­cially has been cleared to play for Utah af­ter transferring from Ore­gon shortly be­fore fall camp be­gan. The Pac-12 fac­ulty ath­letic rep­re­sen­ta­tives’ com­mit­tee waived the in­tra-con­fer­ence trans­fer penalty that can force play­ers to sit out a year. The se­nior has been prac­tic­ing with the team through­out camp. Car­ring­ton was dis­missed from the Ducks soon af­ter he was ar­rested on a mis­de­meanor charge of driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence. Eugene, Ore., po­lice have said Car­ring­ton was ar­rested af­ter hit­ting a pole at a McDon­ald’s restau­rant early on July 1. In ad­di­tion to DUI, Car­ring­ton was cited for care­less driv­ing and mak­ing an im­proper turn. The 6-2, 205-pound San Diego na­tive joins the Utes as the most ex­pe­ri­enced and suc­cess­ful re­ceiver on the ros­ter. Car­ring­ton had 43 catches for 606 yards and 5 touch­downs last sea­son as a ju­nior with the Ducks. He has 112 ca­reer re­cep­tions for 1,919 yards and 15 touch­downs.
