Eli Carter cancels visit to Maryland


Rutgers transfer Eli Carter has cancelled his visit to Maryland for this weekend. He will visit Florida this Sunday and Monday.


The 6’2” sophomore guard, who originally hails from Paterson NJ and played at St. Anthony High (NJ), recently received his release from Rutgers in the wake of the fallout from the Mike Rice scandal. Carter has ruled out a return to Rutgers and named Maryland, Florida, Memphis, Creighton, Buffalo & Pittsburgh as the schools that he is considering. With the cancelation of the Maryland visit, it appears that Carter may have removed Maryland from his list. To the extent that Florida lands Carter, this will be the second St. Anthony’s guard to transfer from Rutgers to Florida in the past 3 years as former St Anthony’s star and McDonald’s All-American Mike Rosario transferred from Rutgers to Florida in 2010.
