Florida’s Eli Carter to Graduate, Transfer to New Program

Florida Gators reserve guard Eli Carter will graduate this spring and transfer to another school, per ESPN. The former Rutgers transfer averaged 8.8 points in 24.5 minutes per game last season.

The Paterson, NJ native’s college career can be defined by one word: injuries. From breaking a leg while at Rutgers to having to take a medical redshirt because of it to a sprained foot earlier this season, his college career has been a long and bumpy road. In parts of three seasons across both Rutgers and Florida, Carter has averaged just eight points per game on just 27.2 percent shooting.

His departure combined with that of former five-star recruit Chris Walker leaves the Gators relying on junior Kasey Hill and a bunch of unproven players for help on the perimeter. After making the Final Four and going undefeated in SEC play in 2014, Florida went 16-17 this past season and did not qualify for the NCAA tournament.
