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.

The Gators got a big boost earlier this week when Rutgers guard Eli Carter announced he would transfer to Florida. After losing Kenny Boynton and Mike Rosario to graduation after last season, the guard position got an experienced playmaker that can create his own offense. The question now becomes whether or not he can be eligible for the 2013-14 season.
Billy Donovan loves him some transfers. It appears the head basketball coach at the University of Florida is taking on another one. Rutgers guard Eli Carter announced on Twitter that he will be heading to Florida marking the third transfer in the last two years and fifth in six years at Florida. The Gators have had a lot of success with their transfers who all have added a good deal to the team.
One day after Rutgers transfer guard Eli Carter announced his intentions to continue his college career in Gainesville, Florida guard Braxton Ogbueze announced his intentions to transfer from the program. Ogbueze was used sparingly during his freshman season last year and will transfer to find more playing time at another school.
