Louisville freshman Shaqquan Aaron to transfer
04/08/2015 01:46 PM
The Cardinals oft-criticized and seldom used shooting guard, Shaqquan Aaron, will be looking for a new home.
The 6’7” guard played in just 23 games, averaging a 1.3 points. He missed the first 9 games of the season because of an NCAA violation. Aaron, who was ranked as high as 16th overall in the nation coming out of high school, never seemed to gel with the coaching staff at Louisville.
In an interview back in February Coach Pitino spoke about Aaron saying that, “He just doesn’t have a Louisville attitude. He’s not a Louisville man in terms of the way we practice, the way we go about it.”
The follow up question to that was can Aaron get there. Pitino’s response: “If he doesn’t, he’ll be at another school. That’s the way it will be. He’s never going to step on the court until he gets that attitude.”
Louisville recently received a commitment from 5th year senior transfer Trey Lewis from Cleveland State, and the Cards are said to be in the mix for another 5th year transfer, guard Damion Lee from Drexel.
