Rutgers' leading scorer Eli Carter requests release

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Since the end of the season, Rutgers has seen three players transfer and another one reportedly expected to leave. Moreover, since Mike Rice was fired as the head coach, two recruits have decommitted and look to be headed elsewhere.

Wednesday night saw the Scarlet Knights' biggest potential loss to date, as star guard Eli Carter requested his release from the program.

Carter, a 6-foot-2 guard, averaged 14.9 points and 2.1 assists before suffering a season-ending knee injury against DePaul in mid-February. He was the team's leading scorer, eclipsing the 20-point plateau on eight occasions.

Carter has not been officially granted his release from Rutgers yet, as the Scarlet Knights are still without a head coach. They have until early next week to grant Carter's release. Given his ability to score, expect Carter to be a sought-after transfer on the market.

If he is granted his release, he will join Jerome Seagears, Malick Kone and Vincent Garrett as recent transfers, while Mike Poole also is reportedly on the way out. Shane Rector and Chris Griffin (now at Auburn) are the prospects who changed their minds.

Myles Mack, Derrick Randall, Kadeem Jack and Wally Judge would be the lone returnees, with redshirt Greg Lewis also eligible next season. Craig Brown is the lone recruit still pledged to the Scarlet Knights.
