According to head coach Bill Barton, Caracter did not meet certain guidelines. "He wasn't up to Notre Dame's standards of effort and attitude," Barton said.
Barton has left the door open for the Louisville recruit to come back and play. For now, Barton said Caracter will return to school this week to resume his studies.
Caracter did play last Saturday at the Big Apple basketball High School invitational held in New York City. However, he stayed behind in New York City after the game was over and was not on the bus back to Springfield, Mass.
