Former Northwestern forward staying in B1G, commits to Indiana
Indiana has made another major addition through the transfer portal.
Tuesday morning, the Hoosiers received a commitment from former Northwestern forward Miller Kopp. He entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal following the 2020-21 season and will continue his college basketball career at Indiana.
“Next chapter,” Kopp wrote on Twitter. “Hoosier Nation what’s good!!!”

Kopp is a 6-foot-7 forward out of Houston, Texas. He spent three seasons suiting up for the Wildcats, playing in 86 career games and making 73 starts. He averages 9.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per game over the course of his time in Evanston.
Last season, Kopp started in all 23 games he played in for Northwestern and averaged 11.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. His best season came as a sophomore during the 2019-20 campaign, when he averaged 13.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per contest.
In addition to landing Kopp from the portal, new head coach Mike Woodson was able to get a commitment from former Pitt guard Xavier Johnson, a big-time scorer who will add a lot of talent to the IU backcourt.
That’s in addition to getting Parker Stewart, Race Thompson, Khristian Lander and Jordan Geronimo to return to Bloomington after previously entering their names in the NCAA transfer portal. Trayce Jackson-Davis is also not declaring for the NBA Draft and will play under Woodson for at least one season.
So far, Woodson’s tenure is off to a great start.
