Mike Woodson says Indiana still pursuing 2 transfer portal additions
By all accounts, Mike Woodson has done a good job of keeping Indiana’s roster together after he was hired this offseason.
But Woodson told reporters on Friday that he’s not done yet.
According to the Indianapolis Star, the Hoosiers are still looking for a transfer portal addition at shooting guard and at a forward spot.
“We’re heavy in the portal,” Woodson said. “We’re still in the portal trying to make things happen for our team.”
Because Woodson was able to convince players like Trayce Jackson-Davis, Race Thompson and others to stay in Bloomington, IU only has two open scholarships available for next season.
One player who Woodson wasn’t able to persuade is Armaan Franklin, who is transferring to Virginia. His departure explains Indiana’s need for a scoring guard.
“Losing Franklin, we’re going to have to look in that area in terms of a scoring two, and maybe some help at the three and four spots, mainly three,” Woodson said.
Indiana only has one commitment for its 2021 class right now: 4-star center Logan Duncomb.
Transfer guard Parker Stewart should also make a big impact for Indiana next season.
