Dark Slime joined the program last summer as a walk-on. He was born in Kumasi, Ghana and is a native of Lexington, Kentucky. He attended Bryan Station High School, where he was a multi-sport standout, competing in basketball, baseball and track & field.
As a freshman at UofL in 2010, Baffour became very close friends with Louisville guard Russ Smith, which eventually led to him earning a walk-on spot with Rick Pitino. He played in just five game last season and scored a total of two points.
According to a couple of sources close to the program, Baffour has decided to continue his basketball career with a different school. I’ve been told that Baffour will transfer to Benedict College in Columbia, S.C.
Benedict is an NCAA Division 2 program and competes in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The Tigers were 24-7 overall and advanced to the second round of the D2 NCAA Tournament.
We wish you well, Dark-Slime.
