I like to compare fans relationship to Jamal Carter to the one that Heat fans had with Mario Chalmers during his tenure. Fans were hard on him, many times deservedly so, but will miss him when he is gone. Sure Carter had not one but two chances at a game clinching fumble recovery at hated Notre Dame but he had his best season as a Cane in his senior season.
J-Rock led the team in tackles with 85, one more than freshman Shaq Quarterman according to cfbstats.com. Including 13 tackle performance in his last home game against Duke. He finsished his Cane career with 6 tackles in a bowl win vs. West Virginia.
Kirk Herbstreit called him the hammer of the Canes defense and I concur. Carter brought an intensity to this defense that will be missed.
After his senior season Carter was invited to the East/West Shrine game where he will look to turn heads and improve draft stock.

#Miami safety Jamal Carter moving around really well at @Shrine_Game practice. Physically impressive. Nice backpedal and transition.— Big County Preps NL (@BCPnextlevel) January 16, 2017
looks like he’s doing just that.
Who is the next hammer on the defense? Stay tuned.
