Indiana center hitting transfer portal after two years with Hoosiers
Indiana center Joey Brunk has decided to end his college career elsewhere.
Tuesday, Brunk took to social media to announce that he will enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal and will look for other opportunities outside of Bloomington. He was with the Hoosiers for two seasons but missed the entire 202-21 campaign because of injury.
“I’m incredibly grateful for Indiana University. I have been able to get my Master’s Degree and am thankful to have been able to continue my education,” Brunk wrote on Twitter. “I’ve decided to pursue my final year elsewhere. Thank you Indiana.”

Brunk transferred into the program before the 2019-20 season after spending three seasons at Butler. Because of the NCAA’s blanket waiver for all winter student-athletes this year, the 6-foot-11 center will still have one year of eligibility remaining.
During the 2019-20 season, Brunk played in 32 games and started in all but one. He averaged 6.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game while logging 19.5 minutes per contest. The Hoosiers likely would’ve reached the NCAA Tournament that season, but it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to his time at IU, Brunk spent three seasons at Butler and played in 60 games with the Bulldogs. He averaged 5.0 points and 2.7 rebounds during his time with the program.
Brunk will be taking 92 games of experience with him to his next destination.
