Receiver Jontavious Carter latest to leave Hurricanes

The exodus of seldom used players at the University of Miami continued Saturday morning when it was learned receiver Jontavious Carter was no longer with the program.

A three-star recruit out of Crisp County, Ga., the 6-2, 230-pound redshirt freshman wasn't listed among the six receivers on the Hurricanes' most recent depth chart at the conclusion of fall camp. He was even behind new arrival Stacy Coley.

The Hurricanes, who have seven scholarship receivers on the roster (Coley, Phillip Dorsett, Allen Hurns, D'Mauri Jones, Malcolm Lewis, Rashawn Scott and Herb Waters), have lost four players to departures in the past two weeks. The others: redshirt freshman running back Danny Dillard, senior defensive end Dyron Dye (the last link to the NCAA investigation), and redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Jalen Grimble (Oregon State).

Of the 14 players who have left the team since the end of last season, a dozen were recruited by coach Al Golden’s staff including seven from the 2012 recruiting class.

UM closed training camp a day early this week and coach Al Golden hasn't been made available to the media since Monday.
