Rutgers G Eli Carter Will Transfer To Florida


Another Scarlet Knight basketball player is transferring, and a lot of them know Billy Donovan’s phone number I see.  ESPN New York is reporting that Rutgers guard Eli Carter will transfer to the University of Florida.

Carter will be the second Scarlet Knight player to transfer in the past four years.  The Former McDonald’s All American Mike Rosario transferred after his sophomore season in 2010.

The 6-foot-2 Carter made the announcement via his Twitter page.

 “I’m proud to announce that I will be continuing my career at the University of Florida!!”

Carter was granted his release from Rutgers in the wake of the Mike Rice scandal earlier this month. Carter plans to petition the NCAA for immediate eligibility.

Carter averaged 14.8 points per game while shooting 38.4 percent from the floor and 32.0 percent from 3-point range.
