Marquette and new head coach Steve Wojciechowski picked up a big commitment on Friday as BYU transfer Matt Carlino will finish his career as a Golden Eagle, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com. The news was first reported by ESPN‘s Jeff Goodman.
The 6-foot-2 Carlino will be eligible to play immediately after graduating from BYU and gives Marquette an experienced scoring guard that has averaged double figures the last three seasons while also handling the ball as well.
The junior averaged 13.7 points, 4.3 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game on 38 percent shooting and 33 percent three-point shooting for BYU this past season. Carlino’s final game at BYU was actually at the BMO Bradley Center in the NCAA Tournament loss to Oregon, which happens to be the home of Marquette.
Carlino should give Marquette an additional perimeter threat for a team that desperately needed shooting last season.
