The Florida Gators menís basketball team added its sixth transfer in five years on Tuesday when Rutgers guard Eli Carter, who scored 31 points in a double-overtime win against Florida in his freshman season in 2011-12, said on his Twitter account that he is moving on.

ďProud to announce that I will be continuing my career at the University of Florida,Ē he announced on Twitter.

Carter, who averaged 14.9 points this past season as a sophomore, could be eligible right away.

Heís expected to seek a waiver rather than sit out a season because Rutgers coach Mike Rice was fired on April 3 amid allegations that he abused players.
