The Cardinals are no longer in the running to land the talented graduate transfer.

On Thursday evening, a day after Wright State graduate transfer Mark Alstork visited Louisville, he released a list of the four teams that he is still considering playing his final season of college at, and the Cardinals did not make the final cut.

LSU, Pitt, Illinois, and South Carolina are the last four schools to be in the running to land the 6’5” guard from Dayton, Ohio.

While it would be a boost to next year’s team to add Alstork to the roster following the departure of Donovan Mitchell, this decision really doesn’t come across as all that surprising. Despite Deng Adel not formally taking his name out of this year’s NBA draft, it is speculated that he is more than likely returning to Louisville for his junior season. Head coach Rick Pitino recently said in a radio interview that if Adel were to return to the program, that they would not add any additional players to the current roster.

Whichever school ultimately ends up getting Alstork, they will be adding a talented scorer to their team who earned All-Horizon League honors. Last year, Alstork averaged 19 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game. He shot 40% from the field and 38.7% from 3-point range while knocking down 84.6% of his free throws.

Alstork is expected to make his decision on Saturday.
