The Gators have received official notification that Eli Carter will join them this fall. He left Rutgers after coach Mike Rice was fired.

Carter, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound junior from Paterson, N.J., native averaged 14.3 points in two years at Rutgers. He was the team's leading scorer each of the past two seasons, averaging 14.9 points as a sophomore and 13.8 as a freshman. He will sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules and will be eligible to play for coach Billy Donovan in the 2014-15 season.

Donovan says, ``Eli is a great addition to our team.''

Rutgers guard Mike Rosario transferred to Florida in 2011 and was an integral part of the team's last two NCAA tournament runs.
