GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida is getting another shooting guard from Rutgers.

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.
