Steven Enoch, a transfer from Connecticut, is headed to the University of Louisville; he'll sit next season and has two years of eligibility.

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino has landed a transfer for next season.

Former Connecticut big man Steven Enoch, who visited the U of L campus last weekend, has committed to the Cardinals. He'll enroll this summer, sit out the 2017-18 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.

The 6-foot-11 Enoch told Cardinal Authority after his visit that it 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 was the only official visit for Enoch, who had interest from St. John's, Duke and others.

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."
