The 6-foot-9 Agau held mulitple offers including Clemson, Connecticut, Creighton, Iowa State and Nebraska.

"The Louisville Cardinals fortified their backcourt of the future and added a frontcourt piece," according to ESPN's Dave Telep. "Agau is a versatile four man who can play facing the basket. He was Nebraska's No. 1 target but Louisville dug him out of Omaha."
