Alabama Recruit Has 'Something Personal' Against LSU

Alabama four-star signee Shyheim Carter chose the Crimson Tide over his hometown LSU Tigers, and the heavily-recruited cornerback didn't mince words in explaining why.

“I just don’t like ‘em. There’s something about ‘em I just don’t like," Carter said in an interview with SEC country. "I mean, LSU’s a great school, phenomenal school, but it’s just something personal I don’t like about ‘em.”

Carter also called out Tiger fans for treating him unfavorably after he made his college commitment: “When I signed with Alabama, LSU fans, they were bad-mouthing me a lot, just because I was an in-state prospect."

Interestingly, Carter grew up watching the Tigers, but was an even bigger fan of Nick Saban than the team itself. He was also seriously considering Ole Miss, at one point de-commiting from the Tide, but ultimately ended up signing on with Saban. The Kentwood, La. native hopes to immediately compete for a starting job.
