Report: Marquette Golden Eagles Land Transfer Gabe Levin


According to a report, the Marquette Golden Eagles have added transfer forward Gabe Levin from Loyola Marymount.

NBCSports.com is reporting that Levin has committed to the Golden Eagles after also considering Northwestern and Notre Dame.

The 6-foot-7 forward will have three years of eligibility remaining after he sits out the 2014-15 season under the NCAA rules for transfers.

The native of Oak Park, Ill., averaged 11.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocked shots in 31.2 minutes per game for the Lions last season.

He played in 29 of Loyola Marymount’s 32 games and shot .414/.244/.762.

Levin decided to transfer after the school opted not to bring back coach Max Good after a 13-19 season and replaced him with former  Charlotte Bobcats and longtime Division I assistant coach Mike Dunlap.

Levin ranked fifth in the West Coast Conference in blocks per game and 10th in rebounds per game.

Loyola Marymount finished last in the WCC at 4-14. Their season ended with a loss to BYU in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament in Las Vegas.
