While the Minnesota basketball team won’t have Marcus Carr on the floor next year, the Golden Gophers added a depth piece who will pay dividends down the line.
Carr, a freshman at Pitt last year, committed to Richard Pitino and the Gophers and will sit a year before having three seasons of eligibility left.
Marcus Carr has committed to the #Gophers, giving Richard Pitino a second #Rivals150 transfer and future playmaker in the backcourt. Carr averaged 10 points and 4 assists last year for Pitt. He will sit out a year and then have three years to play. pic.twitter.com/YekuczEap5
