After sitting out Louisville’s first ten games after suffering a concussion, sophomore forward Angel Nunez has made the decision to transfer, as announced by Louisville head coach Rick Pitino on Sunday.

With starting center Gorgui Dieng on the mend and players like Chane Behanan, Montrezl Harrell and Stephen Van Treese also seeing minutes, it was pretty clear that Nunez would have a hard time earning playing time.
Last season Nunez played in 12 games (4.6 minutes per game), averaging 2.0 points per game. His most productive outing was a seven-point outing in an early season win over IUPUI. However, Nunez also accounted for six points in the Cardinals’ 80-59 win over Connecticut on February 6.
Nunez played a season-high 12 minutes in the Cardinals’ 90-59 loss at Providence on January 10, scoring six points and committing two turnovers.
Nunez, who made his decision to attend Louisville due to the fact that idol Francisco Garcia attended the school, picked the Cardinals over Florida, Miami and West Virginia back in September 2010. There have been no reports in regards to what schools Nunez is considering transferring to.
