Ohio State freshman wide receiver Duron Carter has withdrawn from school and has enrolled at Coffeyville (KS) Community College. Carter, a starter in 2009, is expected to spend one year at the Kansas school, and then be eligible to once again play Division-I football. Bill Greene has the inside story on the Carter move.

Duron Carter has withdrawn from Ohio State, and is enrolled at Coffeyville Community College, the players father, former Buckeye great Cris Carter, confirmed Monday morning.

Carter, a freshman starter in 2009, caught 13 passes for 179 yards, and one receiving touchdown, before being ruled academically ineligible for the Rose Bowl, an Ohio State 26-17 victory over Oregon.

Carter also missed spring practice with the Buckeyes due to academic reasons. He made the decision last weekend to transfer to Coffeyville, where he will seek to improve his academic status, and play football in 2010.

Should Carter achieve academic success at Coffeyville, he will then seek to transfer to a Division-I school, possibly back to Ohio State, in June of 2011. At that point, Carter will still have three years of eligibility, to be completed in four years. The current year at Coffeyville will not count as a red-shirt year for Carter.

Cris Carter also stated that he will have more to say on this situation in the near future, including detailing his son's options for his future in college football.
