Yet another former Texas football running back, redshirt sophomore Toneil Carter, landed with another program in the state of Texas. But, Carter didn’t land with an FBS program like Porter did when he transferred to Houston. Carter landed with the FCS Sam Houston State Bearkats.

It seemed like there were better landing spots for the former freshman Longhorns standout running back. He has much more talent than 90-95 percent of running backs at the FCS ranks. But Carter is off to a decent start with Sam Houston State during his third year in college this season.

Sam Houston State carries a 2-2 record right now. But one of those losses came to the FBS New Mexico Lobos by just a one possession margin. That’s not all that bad. The other loss for Carter and the Bearkats came to North Dakota in Week 3.

On the season, Carter has just shy of 150 rushing yards and three scores. But he’s not getting the bulk of the carries for the Bearkats this season. He’s just sitting and waiting for his chance to make an impact after he averaged more than four yards per carry during his freshman season with the Longhorns.
