Popular, little-used McCarter leaving Rams

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - One of the most popular, but little-used, Rams are leaving the team. Reco McCarter has decided to transfer, with three years of eligibility remaining.

The 6'7 small forward from North Carolina was a fan favorite because of his high-flying dunks in practice.  Fans at the Siegel Center would often chant his name at the end of blowouts.  But McCarter was never able to find a spot in the everyday rotation, and he scored just 6 points in 16 minutes over his entire redshirt freshman season.

McCarter will have to sit the next season before he will be able to play.

Now the Rams have enough open scholarships for the three incoming freshmen they've signed for next season.
