Personal Life

Abdul Carter ranked as the No. 6 recruit in Pennsylvania coming out of Philadelphia's La Salle College High School in the 2022 recruiting class. Carter became an immediate impact player for the Nittany Lions. During his true freshman season at Penn State, Carter earned All-Big Ten second-team honors form the media and third-team recognition from league coaches. He also earned a spot on On3's True Freshman All-American team after tallying 56 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, 6.5 sacks and four pass breakups in 13 games. Cater also joined Deion Barnes (in 2012) as the only Penn State freshmen to record 10-plus tackles for loss and six-plus sacks in a season. He entered the 2023 season in Happy Valley as a preseason All-America candidate. During his high school career, he guided La Salle College to a 9-2 record and a PCL championship in his senior season. Away from football, Carter enjoys video games, working out, shooting pool and playing chess. He's also spent time as a volunteer tutor.
