Florida’s last transfer from Rutgers worked out pretty well, and the Gators are ready to try it again.
Eli Carter, a junior-to-be, announced today he is transferring from Rutgers to UF. He will apply for a waiver to be eligible immediately. Whether he starts playing in 2013-14 or 2014-15, he will have two seasons of eligibility.
“Proud to announce that I will be continuing my career at the University of Florida !! #Gators,” he tweeted today.
Carter is 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. Last season, he averaged 14.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He shot 38.4 percent from the field, including 32 percent from three.
Florida cannot comment publicly on Carter’s status until he signs a letter of intent or enrolls at the school.
