Carroll was an All-SEC Freshman QB two years ago and was an All-State quarterback for Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas High during his prep career. When WC arrives at FIU in January, he will have to redshirt next season, because of the transfer and will be a redshirt junior in 2010.
In his freshman season, WC earned the starting job at MSU and played in all 13 games for the Bulldogs throwing for 1,392 yards with 9 TDs and 7 INTs.
WC lost his starting job this season after just 4 games throwing for 560 yards with 3 TDs and 7 INTs. The folks in Mississippi say WC did not get a fair shake at the QB job this season after just 4 games. MSU was 1-3 after 4 and WC threw for 528 yards with 3 TDs and 6 INTs after those 4 games.
