Graduate transfer Matt Carlino, formerly of Brigham Young University, has decided to play for the Marquette Golden Eagles in his final season.
ESPN College Basketball Insider Jeff Goodman reports that the Scottsdale, Ariz. native chose the city of Milwaukee to be his home for the 2014-15 college basketball season. According to Goodman, the 6'2 guard will be eligible immediately to play in this upcoming season under new head coach Steve Wojciechowski.
In his time in Provo, Carlino was one of the Cougars' most notable major contributors. In his three seasons at BYU, Carlino averaged 12.2, 11.5 and 13.7 points in his freshman, sophomore and junior seasons respectively. Additionally, Carlino did so while averaging 27.7, 28.7 and 27.3 minutes per night.
We'll have more to come on Carlino and what he brings to the table for a Marquette squad that was fledgling a season ago in the first year of the 'new' Big East Conference.
