Carrington, who led the Ducks with 43 catches for 606 yards and five touchdowns last season and earned second team All-Pac-12 honors, was dismissed from the Oregon team on July 14th by new head coach Willie Taggart following a DUI arrest.
Carrington graduated in the spring, and as a graduate transfer, will not have to sit out a year.
Carrington helped beat Utah last November on a last-second touchdown catch at Rice-Eccles Stadium. He gives the Utes a much-needed boost at the receiver position. Raelon Singleton is the leading returning wide receiver with 27 catches for 464 yards and four touchdowns.
Carrington was charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of intoxicants on July 1st, and was cited for careless driving and improper right turn. His attorney entered a written plea of not guilty on behalf of Carrington.
In three seasons at Oregon, Carrington had 112 receptions, 1,919 yards and 15 touchdowns.
But he also was suspended from the 2015 National Championship Game for reportedly failing an NCAA drug test.
Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham has not commented on the transfer.
In addition to Carrington, Texas junior college wide receiver Josh Nurse has also decided to play at Utah.
