    He's the only Gator of recent vintage I can think of whose hoops whereabouts are unknown:

    Brad Beal and Erik Murphy: NBA
    Kenny Boynton: Israel
    Erv Walker: Turkey
    Braxton Ogbueze: Transferred to Charlotte, sitting out this year
    Cody Larson: Playing at South Dakota State
    Walter Pitchford: Playing at Nebraska
    Adam Allen: Hoops career derailed by injuries

    He was drafted to a professional Puerto Rican league and not by the NBA so I'd assume he is over there playing.

    I think he plays for Ponce De Leones in Puerto Rico. The won the league last year and Rosario played a good bit and contributed. Averaged like 9 PTs a game. Good for him.

    Erv is playing in Poland for Zielona Gola. He was in Italy last year.

    Here are his Euroleague stats so far this season: Erving Walker

    I think Adam Allen ended up playing a year or 2 at a low level school in Florida

    It's a shame that Erv is not playing in Mexico. Mexican food is good and cheap.

    Here's hoping Eli Carter can be as good as Mike Rosario. I know there's nothing to compare them...

    MicRo was a sum negative for us in a lot of games. We should realistically hope that all our players contribute more than Rosario.

    Rosario improved leaps and bounds under Donovan. We could use a scorer like Rosario this year.

    Rollins College. Good D-2 program. Great academics.

    My bad, Adam actually is on the Rollins roster for this year.

    Rosario turned into a great all around player for us. You're crazy

    Adam was at last night's game. I guess he is still a Gator.

    Good to hear that both Rosario, Erv Walker and Adam Allen are doing fairly well. Rollins, like many liberal arts colleges has a reasonably good academic reputation,and personally, I have found the professors from there that I have worked with to be pretty intelligent (not always true - e.g. Clemson - EGADS - Clemson's make even South Carolina's look like geniuses by comparison), so likely the reputation is legitimate.

    It took Rosaio until his senior year as a Gator to understand how to play.

    Carter appears to have a higher basketball IQ than Rosario, at least, according to what Bill D has been saying. Hopefully Carter will regain his strength or be redshirted, I would hate to see a wasted year. The team can get by quite well with Wilbekin, Frazier, Hill and Walker at the guards with occasionally DFS if needed.
