Minnesota transfer goalie Marcus Carr has announced his next destination. He announced on his Instagram profile that he will be taking his talents to Texas for the 2021-22 college basketball season.
Carr had previously curtailed his preferences in Texas, Louisville, and Kansas. He also considered playing professionally in Australia, according to reports.
The All-Big Ten goalie entered the transfer portal after the 2020-21 season when Minnesota parted ways with coach Richard Pitino. Carr also declared himself for the 2021 NBA Draft but inevitably withdrew his name to pursue his other options.
Over his two seasons at Minnesota, Carr averaged 19.4 points and 4.9 assists per game, while also averaging four rebounds per game. He shot 38.5% from the ground, almost 80% from the free throw line and 31.7% from the 3-point range.
Carr transferred to Minnesota after a season with Pittsburgh. He’s averaged 14.8 points, 5.1 assists and four rebounds per game over his three years on the field.
Carr joins a Texas basketball team that is now led by first-year head coach Chris Bears. He replaces Shaka Smart, who left the program to coach at Marquette. The Longhorns finished the 2020-21 season with an overall record of 19-8, including 11-6 in the Big 12.
