Wide receiver Duron Carter, son of Ohio State legend Cris Carter, has left OSU and enrolled at a community college in Kansas, coach Jim Tressel confirmed Monday in a statement released by the OSU athletic department.
Carter caught 13 passes for 179 yards and one touchdown in his freshman season, but was ruled academically ineligible for the Rose Bowl. He also sat out all of spring practices because of academic issues.
BuckeyeSports.com first reported Carter’s withdrawal from OSU. According to the report, Carter enrolled at Coffeyville Community College. Division I athletes can transfer to a non-Division I school without losing a year of eligibility. An athlete transferring to another Division I school must sit out a year.
