Duron Carter Will Definitely be a Buckeye Again

By 11W Staff on September 26, 2010 at 10:34p

So says Scout recruiting guru Bill Greene.

After poor grades his freshman year landed him at Coffeyville Community College, the receiver, and son of former Buckeye great Cris Carter, had announced (via Twitter) that he was reopening his re-recruitment, but with pops in the picture, his return to Columbus was never really in doubt.

You guys are in my FB news feed now.......

Will Duron be a (athletic-wise) sophomore or junior next year?

He will be a sophomore, eligibility-wise.

A player who comes out of a juco only has the remaining years of eligibility. Hence, if they played 2 years in juco they only have 2 years left in a 4 year school. DC used one year of eligibility as a freshman at OSU, and another this year at Coffeyville. He should only have 2 more years available when he reports back to an NCAA team next year.

I stand corrected.

It doesn't really matter how much eligibility Duron returns with. He most certainly will be one&done and off to the NFL.

That's strange...not saying your wrong because I don't know either but I remember as this whole story about him transferring was actually taking place, people reported that if he returned he could maintain his sophomore status.

I really hope this is accurate, but there is stil a lot of time between now and Duron's return.  I'm somewhat of a pessimist, and a large part of me thinks Posey is going to forego his senior season for a shot at the NFL (I'm not sure about the impact of the NFL CBA issues on early draft entry, however, so that could influence his decision).  Having Duron back in Scarlet and Gray after losing Sanz and possibly Posey would be huge.  We have good talent rising up, but we needed game experience, and Duron brings that.  It's crazy to think how good this offense would be if we had him as the 3rd WR option instead of T-Wash, who, while a good blocker and team player, is not a playmaking threat.  Kind of funny how both father and son missed critical seasons in Buckeye history, albeit for different reasons.

I agree.  And yeah, Posey is most certainly gone after this season.

I don't know about Posey...

Pryor's almost certainly staying, as 1. He said so, 2. He seems to love being a Buckeye, and as much as he talks about seniors every year you'd think he'd love to be one, and 3. No NFL team is taking him high if he leaves (this one is the most critical of reasons.)

My point is, Posey and Pryor are supposedly best friends (or very close friends at that), and imagine how potentially explosive our offense could be next year. I could see Pryor doing some convincing...

Not to mention a potential NFL lockout as well.

Wait I thought everyone hated him and thought that he is not deserving of things.

If he comes back or not, as long as he doesn't act like a dumb ass, and stay's away from his Mom's belt!

I was truely saddened when he didn't play in the Rose Bowl AND then didn't keep his grades up and was removed from the team. The kid is crazy gifted. Just like his dad. Maybe gonna be better.
