Buchanan has rushed for 1,066 yards and 18 touchdowns entering his final season at West Point.
Carter, a third-team Associated Press all-American as a junior, recorded an academy-record 15.5 sacks, the second-most in the country, in 2021. Athlon Sports and Phil Steele have named Carter to their preseason all-American teams.
