Shaqquan Aaron Transferring to USC

-

Former four-star recruit and Louisville guard Shaqquan Aaron will leave the program and transfer to USC. Evan Daniels of Scout.com reported Aaron’s decision.

The Courier-Journal first reported Aaron’s decision back in April, citing his reasoning as frustration for Louisville recruiting graduate transfer and scorer extraordinaire Damion Lee from Drexel, who later did commit to the Cardinals. Aaron appeared in 23 games for Louisville last season, but only averaged 1.3 points and shot 26.2 percent from the field over 7.6 minutes per contest.

After sitting out a year, Aaron will join a Trojans squad that has gone just 23-41 (5-31 Pac-12) in two seasons under Andy Enfield and has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2011 nor won a conference championship since 2009. That’s a bit of a step down from a perennial contender in Rick Pitin0-led Louisville, who made the Elite Eight last season and won a national title in 2013.

Just the same, it’s an opportunity for significant playing time and allows Aaron to be closer to his hometown of Seattle, so his future is definitely bright.
