Gators pick up Rutgers G Mike Rosario for 2011-12

Scout reported today that Rutgers guard Mike Rosario will transfer from Rutgers to Florida. A sophomore last season, Rosario would sit out this season and begin his Gator career in 2011-12 with two years of eligibility.

Rosario was a 2008 McDonald's All-American and averaged 16.7ppg for the 15-17 Scarlet Knights. His freshman and sophomore seasons were incredibly similar with about 17 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists in 33 minutes. Rosario played at historic St. Anthony's High School in Jersey City and was anticipated to go to North Carolina or USC.

Rosario also gives UF an insurance policy if Erving Walker continues to regress and Austin Rivers ends up at Duke.
