Carton took a leave of absence from Ohio State’s basketball program late in the season, citing mental health as the reason behind his decision. He received full support from head coach Chris Holtmann and his teammates, but the guard decided it was in his best interest to leave the program following the season.
As a freshman, Carton averaged 10.4 points, 3.0 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game, while shooting at a 47.7 percent clip from the floor. He played in 20 games for the Buckeyes last season, and averaged just under 24 minutes per contest.
