No official announcement has been made from Purdue, though Carter has since confirmed the news via his Twitter account.
Carter, a 6-foot, 200-pound shooting guard, is a native of Seattle and played at Frankling (Wash.) High School. He was on pace to become Seattle University's all-time leading scorer before being released from his scholarship.
Carter helps fill a great need for Purdue as a talented scorer. He will likely serve as a backup off the bench for starter Terone Johnson.
The offseason saw three players leave Purdue as transfers, Anthony Johnson, Jacob Lawson and Sandi Marcius. The Boilermakers have added Carter and Cornell fifth-year transfer Errick Peck to fill scholarship needs.
Boiler Sports Report will have more on Sterling Carter's transfer to Purdue as information is made available.
