Oklahoma State football: ESPN uncovers discrepancies in Fath' Carter's statements to Sports Illustrated

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: September 12, 2013

Former Oklahoma State football player Fath' Carter's statements to Sports Illustrated are being challenged in an ESPN.com story by Brett McMurphy.

McMurphy, citing documents obtained by ESPN, showed several of Carter's comments to Sports Illustrated were not true.

Among ESPN's findings:

* Carter told Sports Illustrated he had two degrees from OSU. ESPN, citing documents from the OSU registrar's office, says Carter attended OSU from 2000-05 but does not have a degree from OSU.

* Carter told Sports Illustrated he and former running back Tatum Bell took the same class twice, earning A's the first time in 2003 and F's the second time in 2004. ESPN, citing a transcript provided by Bell, says Bell was not at Oklahoma State in 2004. He withdrew from school after the 2003 fall semester.

Another discrepancy uncovered by ESPN involved former running back Dexter Pratt, who told Sports Illustrated that every course he took in 2009 was online. ESPN obtained university documents that showed Pratt took three online courses and two on-campus classes.
