LSU transfer Garrett Green will visit Indiana

According to a report by Randy Rosetta of TigerSportsDigest.com (subscription required), the LSU Scout.com affiliate, Tigers big man transfer Garrett Green has been contacted by the Indiana coaching staff:

Senior forward Garrett Green was granted his release Monday and he will pursue a Master’s degree at another school and play his final season there.

NCAA rules allow players who have graduated to transfer to another school and play right away if their current school does not offer a Master’s program of their choice. Green is scheduled to graduate with his Bachelor’s degree in sports management on Aug. 5.

The 6-11 California native said Monday night that within hours of being granted the release, he had heard from coaches at Arizona State, Long Beach State and Indiana. He has scheduled an official visit to IU for this weekend.

Inside the Hall confirmed Rosetta’s report with a source late Tuesday evening.

Indiana has one scholarship remaining for next season. With only one year of eligibility left, Green wouldn’t affect scholarship numbers beyond the 2011-2012 campaign.

As a junior at LSU, Green started five of 32 games and averaged 6.3 points and 5.1 rebounds in 18 minutes per game.

Green’s departure from LSU was announced by the school on Monday evening:

“Coach Johnson has given me every opportunity to be successful here at LSU,” said Green. “I’m getting my bachelor’s degree, had a chance to play in the SEC, and be a part of a great basketball program. I really appreciate everything Coach Johnson and LSU have done for me, but I look forward to my next opportunity.”

    An e-hug of the group variety may be in order here. Dog days of summer, lockouts, and pining for IU hoops are all weighing on us.

    Much love to the ITHers, especially you, Loop.

    Totally agree. Crean understands that the, “age of entitlement”, is what has his butt on a starting to warm seat and I say that as a very big Crean supporter. I have full faith that he will put the players on the floor that he feels like gives us the best shot at winning.

    Per Crean’s twitter……this year soft = sitting

    not sure about “much better”, but all I am looking for is better — anything better than last year even if it isn’t significantly substantial is alright by me

    Hey, CZ is the most complete HS senior big since Richard Mandeville.  HAHAHAHAHA

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    TP made great strides last year once the Big Ten season hit.  His fouls really started to get cut to the ones where he was fouling guards who got past their defenders. 

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Loop, do you have a mancrush on Vic?

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Yes, that was pretty painful to watch.  Hopefully those days are behind us!

    KB – I would much, much rather have VO start in front of VJ3 and see Hulls, VO, Will, CW, CZ on the floor but do you really think CTC is going to sit VJ3 to start games after being so stubborn with him last year?

    It’s refreshing to see that we have that much support for our football program. I live in Frankfort, IN and most people here (being that we live 30 min from pu campus) like pu or at least pu football, but there are a lot of people who are IU basketball fans but fans of some other school in football. It happens A LOT around here. IU basketball/Mich football; IU basketball/ND football; IU basketball/O$U football. Not me. I’m IU alllllllllll the way! I would love to get a “program changer” for IU football.

    Guards letting their man get around them ? Now there is an area that for sure has to get a whole lot better than it was last year. I don’t care who IU has waiting for them if they get around our guards it is going to be a big problem for us. CZ may be able to make it not quite as big a problem but it is still going to be an area of concern and could put a real damper on what CZ is able to accomplish his freshman year.

    If he is some how able to play in the B10 season like he has in the ProAm thing (not expecting it to happen) we ALL may have a mancrush on him. LOL

    To me what you speak of will be one of the most interesting things to watch if not the most interesting thing to watch. CTC was, as you say, very stubborn with him last year but he didn’t have the options then that he will have this coming year and I think Crean is feeling some pressure to make some big strides this coming year. While a good portion of that pressure is probably self-inflicted I think is starting to feel it from other areas as well. This will be a interesting part of the season to keep an eye on for sure.

    Why let Verdell start if hes not the best option?  Just because hes scored 1000 points?  For the minutes hes played and the roll of being one of the top 2 scorers, he hasn’t really been scorching the nets…. Not sure what his career avg pts per game is, but its prob close to 10-12 pts a game on prob 42-45% fg pct.
    Midrange game A+… all other aspects D+
    And if his attitude isn’t where its supposed to be, then he will spend even more time on the bench.

    A healthy Mo Creek will have an impact on this problem.  Now, is he healthy?

    Excellent question. When I read these comments about proposed starters, he is not in the conversation.  Any one know?

    Nope. I just think that he is a great kid with a ton of upside potential. Vic is working hard to realize that big potential. I would say much the same thing about Will, but Vic’s numbers last season were better than Will’s. I think that IU got two outstanding 4-year players in 2010! Maybe Vic can help land the DeMatha Big Guy in 2013!
