The Indiana Hoosiers are losing another player to transfer as Jeremiah April announced he will be leaving the school after just one season.
April, a 6’11” big man, played in just four games this season and averaged 1.5 points per game.
The Hoosiers signed April late last year out of Westwind Prep Academy out of Arizona. Indiana hoped he would add depth to the frontcourt, but injuries cost April much of the preseason. He played in just 17 minutes all season.
“Jeremiah informed us earlier of his desire to seek a different situation for himself,” IU coach Tom Crean said in the release. “He would like an increased role and we are not able to ensure him this would happen. Our hope is that he will reach his potential wherever he chooses to go.”
The signing of five-star recruit Thomas Bryant left little room for playing time for April.
With April’s transfer, Indiana is now at the maximum of 13 scholarship players. The Hoosiers are still holding out hope for another five-star big man in Thon Maker, who has limited his choices to Indiana and Kentucky. Maker could potentially be a 2015 freshman if he’s able to reclassify.
