VIDEO: Derrick Caracter

University of Louisville freshman Derrick Caracater talks about the challenge of dropping dozens of pounds and getting his body fat to just 10% and much more in this InsideTheVille.com video feature.

University of Louisville freshman Derrick Caracter arrived for the men's basketball annual team photo on Wednesday afternoon lighter than he has been since possibly the eighth or ninth grade.

"For the first time in his life he's being told no," U of L head coach Rick Pitino said of the 6'9 forward from New Jersey. "He has to get adjusted to the world of academia, to the world of clocks, to the world of being in great shape. But he has Charles Barkley type potential. He has great potential. I compare him to Barkley because he was an unstoppable force inside and Derrick could be that way too."

Caracter discusses the challenges of dropping so much weight and more in this video feature.
