As Indiana begins to reload for the 2016-17 season, Tom Crean is taking a hard look at the transfer market to reinforce the core of his squad. With recent successful transfers in Max Bielfeldt, Nick Zeisloft departing the program, the Hoosiers may be adding another to join Pittsburgh-transfer Josh Newkirk on the roster.

According to the stats on NJCAA.com, McSwain averaged 14.2 PPG, 9.0 RPG, on 53.4% shooting (30.2% 3PT) and hit 65.6% of his free throws in his sophomore campaign at Neosho County. There is, certainly, a significant step up in competition from the JuCo circuit to the Big Ten but McSwain is fielding a number of high-major offers, and Crean has earned quite a bit of trust and belief in his ability to evaluate talent. Seemingly every year, Indiana's head coach finds some sleeper prospect that ends up being an important cog in the team's success.

Welcome to Bloomington, Freddie McSwain. Go to Jiffy Treet.
