Ohio State confirmed today that not only has receiver Duron Carter left for junior college, but also sophomore defensive end Keith Wells has left the program.
Though no reason was given for either move, sounces have said that academic deficiencies were the reasons for both.
Wells saw limited action as a freshman in 2008 but was redshirted last season. Out of Gainesville, Ga., he had been projected as a possible pass-rush expert with above average speed when he signed the winter of 2008.
While Carter has enrolled at Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College in an effort to improve his academic situation, Wells' plans aren't known.
