A former Butler center has decided to complete his college basketball career at Indiana.
On Tuesday afternoon, 6-foot-11 center Joey Brunk confirmed that he will leave Butler as a graduate transfer and will finish his playing career with the Hoosiers. ESPN ranked Brunk as one of the top 15 graduate transfers on the market.
Brunk made the announcement via Twitter, talking about his roots as a reason behind his decision to leave Butler for Indiana.
“I’ve grown up an Indiana kid & I’m proud of where I come from,” Brunk wrote. “Excited to be an Indiana Hoosier & play for Coach Miller. Looking forward to joining the tradition.
Last season, Brunk averaged 7.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game for the Bulldogs. He also averaged over 18 minutes of action per game. As a graduate transfer, he’ll be immediately eligible for next season and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Both Butler and Indiana played in the NIT at the end of the 2018-19 season.
