Carroll averaged 2.8 points and 1.2 rebounds in 10 games for Rutgers last season.

Well, there's another transfer in the world of college basketball. Former Rutgers guard Austin Carroll will head to American University, according to a report from CBSSports.com's Jeff Borzello on Tuesday. Jeff Goodman has since confirmed the report, as well.

Last season, Carroll played in 10 games for the Scarlet Knights, averaging 2.8 points, 1.2 rebounds and one assist. But in mid-December, he was sidelined for the remainder of the season and eventually granted a medical redshirt after suffering through the lingering effects of a knee surgery undergone the season prior.

Carroll, a 6-foot-4 guard from Bedford, Mass., will sit out the 2012-2013 season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. He will be eligible to play for the 2013-2014 season.
