Ex-Rutgers guard Eli Carter down to Florida and Maryland

Another former Rutgers’ player is getting closer and closer to finding a new home.

Sophomore guard and leading scorer Eli Carter, who received his release from Rutgers last week, is down to only two schools: Florida and Maryland. Carter tweeted that on Friday afternoon.

Florida is losing Kenny Boynton and Mike Rosario to graduation, though return Scottie Wilbekin. Michael Frazier II returns for his sophomore season while top-recruit Kasey Hill joins the Gators for the 2013-2014 season.

The 6-foot guard is reportedly going to be on the Florida campus on Sunday, according to the Gainesville Sun.

It hasn’t been reported when or if Carter has/will visit College Park, Md. The Terrapins return a solid backcourt of Dez Wells, Seth Allen and Nick Faust. Junior point guard Pe’Shon Howard decided to transfer to be closer to his family in California.

If Carter chooses Maryland he will eventually take on his former team when Rutgers joins the Big Ten in 2014. Carter will likely attempt to get a waiver from the NCAA, given the reasoning behind his transfer.

    His best chance to get run, right away is with Maryland. Florida has somewhat of a logjam at PG and SG. MD or Florida would be a good choice.

    The NCAA should grant him his immediate eligibility due to the circumstances, if they dont that is some bs.
