According to Mike Miller of The Herald Times and Corey Evans of Rivals, Clifton Moore and Al Durham both have requested a release from the program.

With that said, according to Alex Bozich of Inside The Hall, Durham has not ruled out Indiana completely. Durham’s father stated that he wants Indiana’s new coach to recruit him just as Tom Crean did previously.

According to 247Sports, Moore was ranked 143rd in the country and Durham was 239th. Both are listed as 3-star prospects.

With the eminent departure of the two, Indiana now only has one recruit still signed to the program in Justin Smith, ranked 72nd in the country.

Durham and Moore are officially the first two dominoes in what could be a series of hectic roster turnover.

Not only will there be a lot of turnover, but the firing of Tom Crean could potentially still affect Indiana’s upcoming recruiting class in more ways than just Durham and Moore.
