Chris Mack and his staff have made it pretty clear that when it comes to filling out the 2018-19 roster, they’re hoping to be able to pick up multiple players on the grad-transfer market.
As of Friday afternoon, there are five post-graduate players that have received some type of interest from the Louisville staff.
It’s tough to know where Louisville stands with any of the five. Not only because it’s early, but there are many schools involved with all of them.
