With Matz Stockman transferring from Louisville to Minnesota, that leaves one open scholarship for Rick Pitino this season. It’s too early to know how Pitino and his staff will fill the final roster spot, but we do know of at least one player they’re interested in.
ESPN’s Jeff Borzello was the first to report that UConn transfer Steven Enoch is visiting Louisville. The 6-foot-11, 260-pound, center was a top 50 recruit coming out of high school. He played two years at UConn averaging 9.6 minutes per game. Enoch averaged 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds this past season. He asked for his release in March.
Enoch arrived at UofL on Sunday afternoon and as of Monday he is still on campus for his visit. The Connecticut native is also considering St. John’s and is expected to pay them a visit soon.
As a high school senior in 2015, Enoch had offers from Boston College, Kansas State, Memphis, Providence and Rhode Island before signing with UConn. He’ll have to sit out one season and will have two years of eligibility in 2018.
