Washington has one piece of the 2024 recruiting class looking to be released from his National Letter of Intent following the departure of head coach Kalen DeBoer.

According to Hayes Fawcett with On3 Sports, 4-star edge prospect Noah Carter is requesting to be released from his NLI after originally signing with the Huskies on Dec. 20. DeBoer has since left Washington to take the Alabama job as Nick Saban’s successor.

As a result, Carter is expected to be granted his release from the NLI next week, putting an impact prospect back on the market ahead of National Signing Day in February. Carter was one of the top prospects for the Huskies this cycle.

According to the 247 Sports Composite, the 6-foot-3.5 and 218-pound Carter is the 23rd edge in the nation for the class of 2024. He’s also rated as the No. 5 player from Arizona out of Centennial High School in Peoria.

Carter is not the only loss for the Huskies since DeBoer’s departure. Impact transfer quarterback Will Rogers is back in the portal and looking at a new destination for the 2024 season after originally committing to the Huskies.
