Former Florida guard Noah Locke reportedly lands at ACC school
It took less than three weeks for former Florida guard Noah Locke to land at a new school. According to multiple reports, Locke is headed to Louisville.
Locke, a 6-foot-4 guard, reportedly also considered Providence, Oregon, UConn and N.C. State, among others, according to Adam Zagoria. Locke averaged 10.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 25 games as a junior. He has two years of eligibility remaining. He was one of several players to transfer out of Florida or otherwise leave the Gators program, such as to the NBA, as coach Mike White has re-tooled the roster entering next season.
The NCAA next week is expected to grant immediate eligibility to all first-time transfers.
Locke set Florida’s freshman record with 81 made 3-pointers, then made 79 made 3-pointers in the shortened 2019-20 campaign. This past season for the Gators, Locke had a season-high 19 points against West Virginia, and he also had a season-high of 5 3-pointers against Stetson. He averaged 10 points and 29 minutes per game, and led the team with a 40 percent 3-point shooting percentage.
The Cardinals, like many other teams, have seen a bit of an exodus from their roster. Louisville announced Saturday that Carlik Jones will test the NBA Draft waters, while sophomore guard Josh Nickelberry is transferring out.
