Eli Carter to transfer from Rutgers


Sophomore Guard Eli Carter, Rutgers’ leading scorer the last two seasons, has informed the program that he is seeking a release from his scholarship.  


In addition to Carter, 3 other players have already been granted a transfer from Rutgers since the Mike Rice scandal broke. Further, two of Rutgers’ three incoming recruits for next year — prep school point guard Shane Rector and junior college transfer Chris Griffin — already de-committed from Rutgers in the wake of the outrage to find other schools. The third, Craig Brown, has not yet de-committed. Provided there are no other transfers, the next Rutgers’ head coach would be left with a nine-man roster for next season, 3 of which would be walk-ons.
