Marquette Still In Contention For Loyola Marymount Transfer Gabe Levin


According to a report, Marquette is one of three remaining favorites for Loyola Marymount transfer Gabe Levin.

The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 11.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game for the Lions as a freshman in 2013-14, but decided to transfer after coach Max Good’s contract was not renewed and he was replaced by former Charlotte Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap.

Levin told SNY.tv’s Zagsblog that he was impressed with the vision of new Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski.

“He definitely has a plan. He’s been an assistant coach at Duke and he’ll only strive. He won’t have any problems stepping right in.”

According to the report, Northwestern and Notre Dame are the other two contenders for Levin.

“They’re equally great,” Levin said. “The saddest thing is that you make all these great relationships and you have to pick one school. The other relationships are gone.”

Levin was an All-West Coast Conference freshman team selection last season.
