Connecticut big man transfer Steven Enoch tells Cardinal Authority his visit to Louisville was "better'" than expected

Connecticut big man transfer Steven Enoch tells Cardinal Authority his visit to Louisville was "better'" than expected. Future visits up in the air before a decision by the post player.

University of Connecticut big man transfer Steven Enoch has finished up his official visit to the University of Louisville and he left campus with a better idea of the Cardinals' program.

The 6-foot-11 Enoch, who arrived on campus Sunday night, is transferring from UConn and would sit out the 2017-18 season. He then has two years of eligibility remaining at the school he picks.

Enoch said the Louisville visit was "better" than he expected.

"They have a lot of resources that allow their players to become better athletes," Enoch said. "I would say they have a lot of resources. The players at Louisville have a good training and support systems.

"They're very supportive of their players and I liked that a lot."

Enoch averaged 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds as a sophomore for the Huskies and played in 56 games in two seasons but averaged less than 10 minutes per game. Louisville is the first official visit for Enoch, who has several other schools interested.

"I liked Louisville a lot," he said. "The message to me was they need a big guy the year I would be eligible. And they really want me to come in and be able to fill that spot. That's a big reason I am considering them."

Enoch said he has "a plan" for his recruitment but said "I don't exactly know what order it will be," meaning there could be more visits before he makes a decision. Louisville has a scholarship open after Matz Stockman transferred to Minnesota last week.

Enoch was the No. 44 player in the Class of 2015 rankings by Scout.com. He was the No. 10 post player in the class and his Scout.com evaluation said: "He has the body of a traditional power forward but the fluidity and skills to be a more modern, hybrid."
