Louisville is running out of basketball players for Chris Mack’s first year.
The team was already running low on bodies, and it got worse today with the news that would-be sophomore forward Lance Thomas will transfer to another program.
A four-star prospect in last year’s class, Thomas was expected to provide much-needed depth in Mack’s frontcourt, which lost Deng Adel, Ray Spalding and Anas Mahmoud from a year ago. Thomas will instead leave the Cardinal brotherhood behind, telling his Twitter followers, “After returning home at the end of the semester I was just thinking about my future. I feel it’s in my best interest to look at other options for my career.”
Thomas’ exit leaves Mack with only eight scholarship players on next year’s roster, which includes the recent grad transfer addition from Samford.
Good luck, Chris!
