The wideout did not play in the 2014 College Football Playoff championship game after failing an NCAA-administered drug test, the Register-Guard reported. He also was cited for careless driving and making an improper turn, according to the Register-Guard. For his career, he finishes with 112 catches for 1,919 yards and 15 touchdowns.

In the fall, Carrington was accused of pushing a man and breaking the man's arm while dressed like the Joker for Halloween. With Carrington no longer on the team, Charles Nelson and Dillon Mitchell should both be in line for expanded targets during the coming season, with Alex Ofodile, Darrian McNeal and Malik Lovette also potential names to watch for depth chart movement in August camp. His decision to skip the National Football League draft and return as a senior was welcomed by Taggart, who praised Carrington's performance in spring practices.
