Mountaineers in the Pros

WVU WR Devin Carter Accepts Invite to Participate in Hula Bowl



WVU Football WR Devin Carter

With his college career now over, Devin Carter is hoping to get an opportunity at playing in the NFL. But part of trying to make that dream a reality, he has accepted an invitation to play in one final college game.

The WVU wide receiver has accepted an invitation to take part in the annual Hula Bowl, an event sponsored by Caribe Royale, in Orlando, Florida.

The Hula Bowl, which will take place on Jan. 13, offers draft hopeful the chance to showcase themselves in front of scouts and other NFL personnel. In recent years, there have been people at events like this affiliated with other professional leagues like the USFL and XFL (those leagues are now combined into the UFL) and even the WWE.

In his lone season as a Mountaineer, Carter caught 27 balls for 501 yards and scored two touchdowns. Overall throughout his entire college career, Carter recorded 145 receptions for 2,407 yards and 12 touchdowns. He spent the first five years of his career with North Carolina State before transferring to West Virginia.
