  2. As a freshman at the University of Georgia, he played in eight games and recorded 12 tackles and a touchdown reception.
  3. In his sophomore season, Jalen Carter played 12 games and recorded 31 tackles and three sacks. This earned him a spot on the 2021 All-SEC football team. The same year, his college won the National Championship that year over Alabama.
  4. After the Georgia Bulldogs emerged as the winner of the 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship, he declared for the 2023 NFL Draft and was subsequently selected by the Philadelphia Eagles as the ninth overall pick in the draft.

  7. He was involved in a legal issue after a serious car crash occurred on January 15, 2023, at approximately 2:45 a.m., resulting in the deaths of University of Georgia staff member Chandler LeCroy and football player Devin Willock. Reportedly, the accident occurred as a result of street racing in East Athens after the Bulldogs had been celebrating their second consecutive national championship earlier in the evening. Chandler LeCroy (whose blood alcohol content was 0.197 which is more than twice the legal limit at the time of the crash) was driving a 2021 Ford Expedition and Jalen Carter was driving a 2021 Jeep Trackhawk. LeCroy veered off the road after failing to make a proper turn at a high speed and struck at least two utility poles, downing one of them, and trees before the car came to a stop against the door of an apartment building. Devin Willock was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. Also, it was estimated that both cars reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour and LeCroy’s speedometer indicated she had been traveling at 83 miles per hour when it broke during the crash.
