Roster update: Andrew McLean, Chris Carter, Marcus Hyatt

Andrew McLean’s college football career appears to have come to a close.

McLean, who started 17 games at nose tackle in the last two seasons, will be a student coach this spring, coach Jeff Monken said. He suffered a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 7, 2017 at Rice. McLean had surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate. He had one more season of eligibility left.

“Having another surgery in this offseason with the ACL got him a little down in the dumps about his body and his health,” Monken said. “He wants to be commissionable and he’s really focusing on making sure that he is healthy to do that in December when he graduates.”

Junior quarterback Chris Carter isn’t on the spring roster. Monken said Carter has, “got an issue that he’s dealing with that’s related to the academy discipline structure.”

“Hopefully it will work itself out and he’ll be able to come back,” Monken said.

Carter started the final two games of his freshman season and was the starter against Notre Dame his sophomore year. He didn’t play in the 2017 season due to academics but he still practiced as a scout-team quarterback.

Marcus Hyatt’s name remains on the roster but Monken said the cornerback isn’t currently at the academy. Hyatt, who started eight games in 2016, battled a neurological disorder that hospitalized him for three months in 2017.

“We are hopeful that he can return but we are not sure he is going to be able to,” Monken said of Hyatt. “He’s got to be completely healthy to satisfy the academy and he be commissionable. It’s still yet to be seen.”
