Carter was an honorable mention All-Big Ten pick in 2015, starting all 12 games at middle linebacker and leading the Terps with 103 tackles (13 for loss). He was a repeat honorable mention all-conference selection the following year, racking up 112 tackles in the middle, nine for loss, and six sacks to go along with an interception, four pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. Carter was a team captain each of his final two years on campus, including his senior season when earning the team's Defensive Player of the Year award and honorable mention All-Big Ten notice (team-high 90 tackles, 3.5 sacks; conference-high four fumbles).
