Early Football Signing Day

Senior Micah Carter signed a letter of intent to continue playing football at the college level on Wednesday, December 21, in front of family and friends at Wills Arena on campus.

This summer, Carter announced he committed to play football for Jeff Brohm at Purdue University. After Brohm’s recent hire by the University of Louisville, he reconsidered his decision to stay at home and play for the Cardinals.

“Micah Carter has been the most highly recruited player in my tenure at St. X. He had offers to play in each of the five Power 5 football conferences. Most recruiting services had Micah ranked as the top Kentucky recruit in the 2023 class,” said Tiger Head Coach Kevin Wallace. “His decision to stay at home to play for Louisville allows him to play in front of friends and family while keeping the strong relationships he had developed with many of the Purdue football staff that will become a part of Louisville Football in 2023.”  

Micah’s play on the field this season allowed the Tigers to develop into one of the top teams in Kentucky. He was a defensive leader from the outside linebacker position and was undoubtedly one of the most productive players for St. X. 

“I couldn’t be more proud of Micah. Watching him play as a freshman, you could tell there was something special. This is when your hard work and dedication pay off as you sign the National Letter of Intent,” said Athletic Director Denny Williams. “Being a UofL football season ticket holder myself, I am excited that I will get to see Micah continue to grow and play football in the ACC. Go Tigers, and go Cards!”

Carter joins eight other classmates who have already announced college commitments earlier this year: Landon Akers (Bellarmine University - Baseball), Wes Beard (University of Kentucky - Golf), Johnny Crush (Swim - West Point), Sami Hattab (University of Kentucky - Cross Country and Track & Field), Ben Purnell (Baseball - Gulf Coast State College), Will Scholtz (University of Texas - Swimming), Cooper Smith (Troy University - Baseball), and Ty Starke (University of Louisville - Baseball).
