Indiana made the decision to move on from head coach Archie Miller and with a new head coach eventually set to take over at Bloomington it won’t be a huge surprise to see some roster turnover this offseason. The first player to step away from Indiana was guard Al Durham, who has entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer.
Indiana senior Al Durham has entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer, sources told ESPN. Averaged 11.3 points and shot 38% from 3 this season.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) March 15, 2021
Durham spent four years with the Hoosiers, starting the past three seasons in Bloomington. This past season Durham averaged a career high 11.3 points per game. Durham also averaged 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game while hitting 38% from three, being one of the few Hoosiers that could hit from beyond the arc. Durham started 97 games for Indiana over the past four seasons, averaging 8.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game throughout his career.
“Thank you Indiana for allowing me to for up and mature right in front of your eyes,” Durham tweeted. “My four year experience has been amazing! With that being said, I have decided to enter the transfer portal and explore possibilities elsewhere as a fifth year senior.”
Durham will have one year of eligibility remaining. As Durham is a grad transfer, he’ll be immediately eligible wherever he goes (regardless of if NCAA eases transfer restrictions).
