IU men’s basketball sophomore forward Jerome Hunter announced Sunday he will be transferring to Xavier University.

On May 13, the program announced in a press release that Hunter would not be returning to the team, opening up an available scholarship for University of South Florida junior transfer Michael Durr. The release did not give reasoning as to why Hunter is not returning.

Hunter averaged 6.3 points and three rebounds per game while shooting 34.2% from behind the 3-point line last season.

Hunter averaged 4.9 points and 2.5 rebounds per game, while shooting 32.4% from beyond the arc in his two years playing at IU. In 2018-19, Hunter missed the entire season after having surgery on an undisclosed leg injury.

Hunter will have three years of eligibility remaining due to the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver granting all athletes an extra year of eligibility.
