Sophomore forward Gabe Levin, the former Loyola Marymount star, will transfer to Marquette according to Levin himself after an interview with Big East Coast Bias.

The Oak Park, Ill. native told Big East Coast Bias that the main reason he transferred was due in large part to head coach Max Good's contract not being renewed and a new set of coaches came into the fold.

A few days ago, Levin had a list of three possible schools to transfer to which included Marquette, Northwestern and Notre Dame. Levin wound up visiting all of the schools, according to NBC Sports.

The explosive and strong 6-foot-7 forward decided that Marquette was the school he wanted to transfer to on Wednesday.

"Marquette is a great team already. I'll do anything to help the program be better," Levin told me. "I listened to my instincts and my gut feeling and that happened to be Marquette."

He was named to the West Coast Conference All-Freshman team for his great season, where he led the team in scoring and rebounds, averaging 11.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. Despite not playing in a major conference last season, he still expects to be productive and help the Golden Eagles accomplish a successful season.

"I'm also a fierce competitor," the Oak Park native added. "And I think all of those things will contribute positively to my role on the team, whatever that may be."

Gabe Levin responded when asked what he will bring to the Marquette Golden Eagles, saying, "I feel like I have a drive and work ethic that is at an elite level."

Levin will have to redshirt this upcoming college basketball season, but will be able to play as a sophomore in the 2015-2016 season.
