Louisville gets visit from UConn transfer Steven Enoch

Could another big man be joining the fold for 2018-19?

NCAA Basketball: Connecticut at South Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville received a visit on Sunday from big man Steven Enoch, who is transferring after two seasons of playing for Connecticut.

The 6-foot-11, 260-pound Enoch averaged just 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds as a sophomore this past season. A foot injury forced him to miss four games in January. Enoch will have to sit out the 2017-18 season but will have two years of eligibility remaining after that.

Enoch was a four-star prospect coming out of St. Thomas More High School in Connecticut. He picked the Huskies over Boston College, Memphis, Kansas State, Providence and Oregon, among others.

I get that Enoch is a bigger body who will become eligible in the season after Louisville’s current biggest body, Jaylen Johnson, is gone, but going down this path still feels like a bit of a reach. Enoch couldn’t find consistent minutes or turn into a consistent producer on an abysmal Connecticut team this past year.

Maybe this can be remedied through a year of sitting out, but it seems like another big man project that is far from a sure-thing to produce results.
