Indiana men’s basketball gets transfer commitment from Bellarmine forward Langdon Hatton

Indiana men’s basketball landed Bellarmine University transfer forward Langdon Hatton on Wednesday afternoon, he announced on Instagram. The 6-foot-10 senior has one year of eligibility remaining. 

From Georgetown, Indiana, Hatton attended North Harrison High School before starting his collegiate career at William & Mary, where he averaged 4.4 points and 2.7 rebounds per game on 45.4% shooting in 14.8 minutes per game in the 2021-22 season. 

He then transferred to Bellarmine and produced similar numbers his sophomore year, but last season with the Knights he started all 31 games and upped his numbers to 10.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game on 48% shooting in 27.8 minutes per game.

Hatton fills Indiana's need for a backup big man. He joins junior forward Malik Reneau and redshirt senior-plus center Oumar Ballo as the Hoosiers’ only rostered big men. Sophomore forward Mackenzie Mgbako, a perimeter-oriented player, spent time playing the four-spot toward the end of last season and could be due for more time in the position next year. 

Hatton is the fifth transfer to commit to Indiana this offseason. He joins sophomore guards Myles Rice and Kanaan Carlyle, senior forward Luke Goode and Ballo in the transfer class.
