Senior center Michael Durr entered the transfer portal after one season with Indiana men’s basketball in which he appeared in 30 games. Durr’s decision to enter the portal was first reported Thursday by Verbal Commits and he became the second Indiana player to enter the portal in the last two days, following sophomore guard Khristian Lander on Wednesday.

Durr joined the Hoosiers last season after three years at the University of South Florida where he started in 85 of his 87 appearances, posting averages of 6.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. However, Durr served in a backup role with the Hoosiers behind junior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis, a second-team All-Big Ten performer last season.

As a graduate transfer, Durr will be eligible to play immediately after transferring and has one year of eligibility remaining. With Durr and Lander moving on, the team is now one scholarship over the NCAA’s 13-scholarship limit for next season with three freshmen incoming next season and all of Indiana’s players eligible to return.
