Sophomore guard Khristian Lander has entered the transfer portal after two seasons with Indiana men’s basketball, per Lander’s Twitter account and a report by ESPN’s Jeff Borzello on Wednesday.

Lander, a five-star recruit in the class of 2021, was recruited by former Indiana head coach Archie Miller and averaged 10.2 minutes per game in 26 games as a freshman during the 2020-21 season. The former No. 11-ranked recruit, according to 247 Sports, opted to return for a second season at Indiana after originally entering the transfer portal last summer.

His playing time didn’t improve under current head coach Mike Woodson, though, as Lander only appeared in 13 of the Hoosiers’ 35 games this season and averaged 2.9 points per game as a sophomore.
