Tennessee freshman first baseman and outfielder Richard Carter announced on Twitter he is leaving the program.
"I will not be attending UT next year. I will miss my teammates more than anything. No regrets and excited for the future," was Carter's tweet on Saturday following the season-ending loss to Arkansas.
The Ravenwood High School graduate started four games and played in eight this season. He had one hit in 11 at-bats with two RBIs.
Freshman outfielder Jared Allen responded: “its not gonna be the same man teammates no matter what! Gonna miss you man! #teammates #loveyouman”
And another freshman, pitcher Robbie Kidd, replied: “I love you man, for sure making a trip to see you this summer. #family”
