Specifics are low at the moment, but Louisville will get a visit later this week from point guard Marcus Carr, who remains in the transfer portal.
According to college hoops inside Jon Rothstein, Carr will visit Texas this week; the Longhorns appear to be the favorites to land the 6-foot-2 guard. However, Louisville is making a push, too. It’s key for Chris Mack to not only get a visit from Carr, but to also land the coveted pick-and-roll engine.
Kansas and Kentucky remain in contention for Carr, too.

As a freshman, Carr spent the 2017-18 season playing for Kevin Stallings at Pitt; he started 27 games, while averaging 10.0 points and 4.0 assists per game.
Following that season, Carr transferred to Minnesota to play for Richard Pitino. After a redshirt in the 2018-19 campaign, Carr quickly emerged as one of the best guards in the Big Ten. While taking on a more central offensive role in the 2020-21 season, Carr averaged 19.4 points, 4.9 assists and 1.3 steals per game.
Carr was one of 13 Division I players to use 200+ pick-and-roll possessions this season, per Synergy Sports — along with Max Abmas, Ayo Dosunmu, Isaiah Miller and Javion Hamlet. Carr scored 0.84 points per pick-and-roll possession (39.1 eFG%).
Carr’s visit to Texas is set for Tuesday, per Travis Branham of 247 Sports.
