The University of Louisville women's basketball team has lost one member of its No. 1 recruiting class from last season.
Freshman point guard Taja Cole, a former McDonald's All-American, is transferring. Cardinal Authority confirmed the news on Wednesday night after Cole had posted it on her social media accounts.
A native of Virginia, the 5-foot-7 Cole averaged just 15.2 minutes a game as a freshman. She averaged 2.9 points a game and shot just 33 percent from the field, including 10 of 33 from three-point range.
Cole only played a little over five minutes in the NCAA Tournament loss to DePaul on Sunday.
The Cardinals have point guard Arica Carter, who will return for her junior season, while five-star guard Sydney Zambrotta has signed and will be a freshman at U of L in the fall.
U of L coach Jeff Walz is on the West Coast recruiting and was unavailable for comment.
