Guard Eli Carter will play for a third and final school next season: Boston College.
The former Florida player, who began his career with Rutgers, has announced he’ll join Jim Christian’s program for the 2015-16 season as a graduate transfer.
“First I would like to say thanks to all three schools for the relentless pursuit in my abilities,” Carter tweeted on Monday. “I will be doing my final year of collegiate basketball at Boston College ! #EAGLES”
Boston College beat out Georgetown and UNLV. The Eagles certainly could use the help, as Christian’s team went 13-19 last season, his first with the program. Ironically, BC averaged 2.42 years of experience in last year’s group, making it the sixth most experienced club in all of D-I.
Carter put up 8.8 points for middling Florida last year. His best year statistically came at Rutgers in 2012-13, when he averaged 14.9 points and suffered a broken leg near the end of that season. Carter will help replace BC’s best player, Olivier Hanlan, who left early for NBA dreams.
