After four seasons in Bloomington, Al Durham is ready to move on from Indiana.
But he’s not quite done with college basketball.
ESPN’s Jeff Borzello reports that the former IU guard has entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer and will look to spend his recently-gifted fifth year of eligibility elsewhere. The Georgia native averaged a career-best 11.3 points, 2.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 26 games this season. Durham also shot 38% from 3-point range and posted a team-high 78% mark at the free throw line.
In other roster news, freshmen guards Trey Galloway and Anthony Leal told Tipton Edits that they are committed to sticking with IU despite Archie Miller’s ouster. Trayce Jackson-Davis, meanwhile, told the illustration service that he has not yet decided on whether he will consider a return to Indiana next season.
IU athletic director Scott Dolson told reporters that he spent time meeting with Indiana’s players — and signee Logan Duncomb — after parting ways with Miller on Monday morning.
“I met with them via Zoom,” Dolson said. “Change is hard. Uncertainty is hard. I wanted to assure them — I wanted them to hear directly from me — of our commitment and my commitment to maximizing their opportunity here within IU Athletics and IU Basketball. It was really important to me. I really appreciate their attention and their participation in the meeting.”
