Indiana coach Mike Woodson announces forward will not return next season

Hunter has spent the last three years with the Hoosiers. He redshirted in 2018 before taking on a bench role in 2019 and 2020. Last season, he averaged 6.3 points and 3.0 rebounds per contest.
In total, Hunter played in 55 games for Archie Miller and the Hoosiers.
Overall, it’s been a great offseason for Woodson and Indiana. In addition to keeping Trayce Jackson-Davis in the fold, Woodson signed 4-star shooting guard Tamar Bates and has brought in two high-level transfers.
Woodson was also able to keep Race Thompson out of the transfer portal.
This gives Indiana an open scholarship for this summer. It’s currently unclear if Woodson plans to add another freshman to the class of 2021 or look for options in the transfer portal.
