The Indiana Hoosiers got some important news this week as fans learned the program would be losing forward Damezi Anderson to transfer. He played in 18 total games last season and was preparing to enter his junior year in Bloomington.
Before arriving at Indiana, Anderson was rated as a four-star prospect by 247Sports and the 124th best prospect in the 2018 recruiting class. He wasn’t a “can’t miss” prospect, but certainly projected to play for the Hoosiers when he got on campus.
Unfortunately, Anderson never delivered once he got to Bloomington. He played sparingly as a freshman and barely saw any increase in his playing time as a sophomore, topping out at 17.3 percent of the team’s minutes. Anderson finished his time with the Hoosiers by playing just two minutes in Indiana’s final 11 games.
With his departure, Indiana is now two under the scholarship limit heading into next season. Archie Miller and his staff will hope to find some new contributors to help fill out that depth. Meanwhile, Anderson will be heading to Loyola (Chicago) next year.
