What stood out from Louisville basketball’s official 2020-21 roster.
It’s starting to feel a lot more like “normal” with the NBA in the midst of an entertaining set of playoff series, MLB trekking towards a postseason, college football set to return (for now), and of course college basketball, which is set to begin in November. Louisville basketball’s season become much more real on Tuesday when they released the official roster for 2020-21.
We’ve known who would make up about 90 percent of the roster before Tuesday, but we officially got the total number of players, number changes, height and weight differences, and much more.
The roster is made up of 12 scholarships players, including two graduates and four walk-ons. Of those four walk-ons, four of them are new to the team, including Sam Bearden (Louisville, KY), Brad Colbert (Loveland, OH), Andrew Schultz (Rockwall, TX), and Ashton Myles-Devore (Versailles, KY. Son of former Cardinal, Ellis Myles).
While a lot of the information that makes up the roster is stuff we’ve known for a little while, it was interesting to see where guys like Sam Williamson, JJ Traynor, Jaelyn Withers, and others ended up height and weight wise.
Typically there isn’t much to glean from a roster that you’ve known for almost a year, but I do think there are a few things worth noting.
With that being said, let’s take a look at what I believe to be the three biggest roster takeaways.
