In October, when senior Saint Anthony High School (NJ) guard Elijah Carter decided to play his college basketball in the Atlantic 10 for Saint Bonaventure, it was considered a solid pickup for the Bonnies. Over the course of the season, Carter saw his stock continue to rise. This spring, Carter went on a tear, scoring in bundles. Between the IS8/Nike league in New York City and the Donofrio Classic in Philadelphia, Carter routinely netted over 30 points. In fact, Carter scored an amazing 54 points in a win with the New Jersey Roadrunners at the Donofrio Classic in April. Since his impressive performances in the spring, Eli has opted to reclassify from the 2010 class to the 2011 class, spending next year at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire.
In addition to reclassifying, Carter has also reopened his recruitment. He has officially been released from his Letter of Intent with Saint Bonaventure, allowing him to be recruited once again. In an article on NBE Basketball report, which is linked below, Carter said that a number of schools are involved in his recruitment. The two schools, thus far, that have extended scholarship offers are Rutgers and Saint Joseph's.
It is clear that the Hawks are targeting a point guard in the 2011 recruiting class, and Eli Carter fits that bill. With this apparent offer, he jumps into the mix alongside players like Chris Wilson and Juan'ya Green
