Gainesville, FL (Sports Network) - The NCAA has granted a waiver for guard Eli
Carter to begin playing at Florida this season after completing a transfer
Carter decided to transfer after head coach Mike Rice was fired by Rutgers in
April for his volatile behavior toward players.
"We are happy to have Eli available to play this season," said Gators coach
Billy Donovan on Monday.
The junior shooting guard is still recovering from a broken leg he sustained
in February. He was averaging 14.9 points in 24 games before the injury.
Carter averaged 14.3 points in 56 games, including 46 starts, in two seasons
for the Scarlet Knights. He has also made 94 career 3-pointers.
