    Billy D says he's still recovering from his broken leg. I doubt he plays early on even if cleared.

    Yeah, I wonder if a redshirt might be best for him anyway.

    Not if he is healthy. He could put us over the top and could turn out to be our best guard.

    I was thinking the same thing. It might be the reason his waiver has not more heavily pursued.

    I think that initially a redshirt was planned. Between Wilbekin, Hill, Frazier, and Graham, we really didn't need him as badly, and given his injury and lack of familiarity with the system, a year off would have helped him immensely in the long run.

    But between Walker's ineligibility and the suspensions of Wilbekin, Prather, Finney-Smith, and Harris, we are in desperate need of more hands on deck. If Carter is healthy and eligible, we will use him.

    Don't forget that Carter's performance against the Gators 2 years ago was probably better than any performance by a Gator guard in the last several years. Erving Walker had a similar game against, I believe, Arkansas several years ago, but Carter's performance was against a better team.

    I agree. He had a great game. I still think you exaggerating his potential impact a little. The kid is an outstanding dribble drive scoring guard, but how will that translate in our offense? As I recall, Rutgers didn't run much ball screen action. Can he execute our high ball screen? Can he shoot, drive, and/or pass out of that? Can he be a catch and shoot threat, either spotting up off ball, in transition, or coming off our baseline screens? Can he play any one for us at all? His skill set isn't necessarily ideal for our system, so there might be an adjustment period, in which the same way as there was for his fellow Rugters transfer Rosario.

    UF is hardly desperate for more hands on deck. I suspect UF will have the following lineup for Wisconsin:

    PG: Hill
    SG: Frazier, Graham
    SF: Finney-Smith, Prather
    PF: Harris, Yeguete
    C: Young

    So Carter and D.Walker can still redshirt. Harris, Yueguete and Young can man the 80 minutes in the paint with a bit of help from Prather. Finney-Smith and Prather can handle the 40 minutes at the SF. Hill, Frazier and Graham can handle the 80 minutes for the backcourt though clearly ball handling will be an issue. Still I cannot see playing Carter this year because Wilbekin is going to miss a few games.

    Aren't Prather, Finney-Smith, and Harris all suspended through the Wisconsin game?

    Eli is going to be fun to watch assimilate into his new surroundings. Having seen him play once in NJ and a few others on TV, I haven't seen him in the kind of role he'll be in at Florida. It makes sense given the different responsibilities he had on a team with relatively few scoring threats around him. He may adjust very quickly. I don't think that because someone hasn't played a certain role or style before they aren't capable of adjusting quickly. Some are, some will take longer.

    I hope the decision to redshirt or not is his to make. I guess I'd error towards waiting a year, especially if the injury/recovery is likely to be an issue. If he recovers quickly and picks up his new role quickly AND would end up being a significant contributor by February and March (especially if you guys are having any trouble replacing the scoring lost from last years team), then I could see a good case for not redshirting him.

    Depends on if it's three regular season games or three games counting the exhibition. I assumed they'd all be suspended through the Wisconsin game. Wonder if they have considered staggering the suspensions, so that they'd have one at least one of the three available for every game through the first four games, and two available for the fifth game?
