Ex-Indiana big man staying in B1G to finish college hoops career
Joey Brunk is leaving Indiana but he’s decided to stay in the B1G.
Over the weekend, the former Indiana and Butler center announced on Twitter that he has committed to Ohio State to complete his college basketball career. The news comes a few days after entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal.
Brunk has one year of eligibility remaining and will be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer for the 2021-22 season. He missed all of last season with the Hoosiers due to an injury.

Brunk transferred to Indiana before the 2019-20 season, joining the Hoosiers after spending three seasons at Butler. In his lone playing season in Bloomington, the 6-foot-11 center played in 32 games and made 31 starts. He averaged 6.8 points and 5.2 rebounds while logging just over 19 minutes per game.
In his previous three seasons at Butler, Brunk averaged 5.0 points and 3.5 rebounds while appearing in 60 games with 13 starts.
Brunk was one of multiple Hoosiers who entered their name into the NCAA transfer portal after IU parted ways with Archie Miller and brought in Mike Woodson. Brunk is the third player to announce his transfer destination, along with Armaan Franklin and Al Durham.
Ohio State will add depth to the post with the addition of Brunk.
