Derrick Caracter has reportedly dropped out of the University of Louisville two days after U of L was bumped from the NCAA basketball tournament. Apparently quit attending classes several weeks ago. Never heeded any of Rick Pitino’s advice over the past two seasons.
Caracter has resumed his trip to obscurity, picking up where he was before he was detoured to Louisville. Don’t know much about his former life but he had plenty of great guidance at U of L, including a personal chaperone for a while. No way to get through to him, no escape from himself.
Pitino recognized the raw potential but not the full extent of the challenge. He was successful in getting Caracter to shed 70 pounds to get into playing shape but was unable to get him to quit playing around.
