    This year is definitely setting up as the battle of the "good guys" versus the "bad guys" in the SEC. It should be fun.

    That first video of Eli, which is from his high school days, is ridiculous. If he is anywhere near that good at UF, Billy has hit a home run.

    Took them long enough.

    All of the other Rutgers transfers were cleared over a month ago.

    Wasn't there some delay in getting Eli's request in? The whole thing was kind of confused and mysterious.

    Anyway, apparently he still has to recover from his leg injury, so "cleared to play immediately" might not mean immediately immediately.

    Exactly. The expectations for him seem way out of control at times. He is a combo guard who doesn't fit either our two or our one very well, he is new to the system, and he is coming off a leg injury that has limited him to minimal summer work. I suspect he will work his way into shape and into the system as the season goes on, but if he is even cleared to play in November it will be for depth purposes more than anything.

    Agree about being new to the system and coming off the injury, but disagree about not fitting. He should fit as well as Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton, but he is a lot more skilled than Kenny and a lot bigger than Erving.

    My view is that when Carter plays this year or next if his injury makes his clearance moot, he brings one thing to UF that UF does not currently have. He is a two guard who can drive the ball to the rim. Frazier is a two guard more in the Humphrey mode who does not drive the ball to the rim much. Graham seems similar though he maybe takes the ball to the rack a bit more.

    This is welcome news. The only better would be that he has kept all of his skills and is now 6' 9"+.

    As I said in the other thread, at Rutgers he was a great dribble drive scoring guard, but he wasn't a ball screen guy at all nor was he a catch and shoot guy. Maybe he has those skills and didn't show them.
