WVU secures commitment from former N.C. State receiver Devin Carter

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — WVU picked up a verbal commitment for a position of obvious need in the 2023 season. Former North Carolina State wide receiver Devin Carter announced on social media Wednesday evening that he will join the Mountaineers.

Carter has played in 49 games over the last five seasons with the Wolfpack. He has reeled in 118 passes for 1,906 yards and ten touchdowns. This past fall, Carter caught 25 passes for 406 yards and two touchdowns while playing in nine games.

Carter is a native of Clayton, N.C. and he has one season of eligibility remaining.

The Mountaineers lost their top four receivers from this past season. Kaden Prather and Reese Smith have transferred out and Bryce Ford-Wheaton and Sam James are bound for the professional ranks.

Carter previously committed to play for West Virginia’s season-opening opponent, Penn State.
