Once the BBN’s most coveted point guard in the transfer portal, Marcus Carr’s time in college basketball may be over.
One of the top scorers on the move this offseason, Carr averaged 19.4 points per game for Minnesota last season. He initially entered his name into the NBA Draft pool, only removing himself from consideration at the withdrawal deadline. Shortly after inserting his name into the portal, Carr listed Kansas, Louisville, Texas and Kentucky as his finalists.
The delayed decision essentially removed him from consideration at Kentucky after the Wildcats picked up a handful of players from the portal and brought back Davion Mintz for one more season. Louisville and Texas quickly emerged as frontrunners. He visited Texas this week during the dead period, with one photo potentially incriminating Texas for violating NCAA rules, then tentatively scheduled a visit to Louisville. Now, plans have changed.
After completing his trip to Austin, Carr’s mentor told Jon Rothstein that the point guard is now considering entering the professional ranks in Australia.
Carr could make Texas a Final Four contender. He could turn Louisville into an ACC frontrunner. Instead, he may be heading overseas. You love it see it.
