According to this tweet from Jeff Borzello of, 6’4 shooting guard Sterling Smith will visit Louisville next Wednesday.

Smith is a transfer from Coppin State and as the tweet says, he is eligible immediately. This past season for the Eagles, Smith averaged 13.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 30.1 minutes per game. He shot 41.8% from three, connecting on 76-182 from behind the arc. As we have said before, Wayne Blackshear led the Cards this past season with 60 made three pointers.

He had some impressive games shooting the three this past season. Some of those include: 6 for 7 with 27 points against Savannah State, 6 for 10 with 27 points against Delaware State, 6 for 11 with 24 points against NC A&T, 5 for 10 with 28 points against Norfolk State, 5 for 10 with 17 points against Howard, and several other games where he made 4 three pointers.

Louisville still has two spots to fill for next year’s team. As I posted a few days ago, there are three main targets to fill those two spots. Derryck Thornton could very well be headed to Duke, but we don’t know yet. The top two choices for the Cards appear to be Damion Lee and Maverick Rowan. But with only two spots left, you have to look at more than two guys. You have to cover yourself in case Lee goes somewhere else or Rowan does not reclassify.
