Receiver Duron Carter, a starter for Ohio State in 2009 as a freshman, has enrolled at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas with intentions on improving his academic standing.
Carter, who had 13 receptions for 179 yards last season, missed the Buckeyes' 26-17 win over Oregon in the Rose Bowl after being ruled academically ineligible. Coach Jim Tressel announced his departure Monday.
Carter, the son of ESPN NFL analyst Cris Carter, also missed spring practice.
Ohio State finished the season ranked fifth.
The Buckeyes said Monday that defensive end Keith Wells also has left the team and won't play in 2010. Wells redshirted in 2009 after seeing limited action as a freshman in 2008.
