Rutgers basketball transfer Austin Carroll has found a new home, Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports reported on Tuesday.
Rutgers transfer Austin Carroll confirms to CBSSports he's headed to American. First reported by worst-dressed writer ever - @Jeffborzello.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanCBS) June 19, 2012
Carroll averaged 2.8 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists during his sophomore season at Rutgers. He received a medical redshirt for the season after lingering effects of a torn meniscus limited him to just 10 games, and will have three years of eligibility remaining at American.
Other schools the 6-foot-4 guard considered were Loyola (Md.), Penn, Rhode Island, Loyola Marymount and Towson. CBS Sports reported earlier this month that it might be possible for Carroll to receive a waiver that will allow him to play immediately for American without having to sit out a season.
