The Louisville Cardinals are working the transfer market under new men’s basketball coach Chris Mack, and the latest target appears to be Towson guard Zane Martin.
According to a report from Jake Lourim of the Louisville Courier-Journal, the Louisville staff may have a connection that gives them an in with Martin.
Cardinals assistant Luke Murray was on Towson coach Pat Skerry’s staff from 2011 to 2013 and that could help them curry favor with Martin, who averaged 19.8 points per game and was named all-conference in the Colonial Athletic Association. However, Martin is in no rush to make a decision after being lightly recruited out of high school.
The 6-foot-4 shooter (71 made 3-pointers in 2017-18) can also handle some responsibilities at the point, making him a solid fit in the Louisville back court. After sitting a season, he’ll have two years of eligibility remaining with whichever program he chooses.
His former high school coach Carl Arrigale predicts he’ll receive wide interest.
