Jeremy Hollowell to transfer from Indiana

IUIllB1G0014

Sophomore forward Jeremy Hollowell will transfer from Indiana and seek an opportunity to play elsewhere, according to a release sent to the media by IU.

Hollowell averaged 5.7 points and 3.5 rebounds for the Hoosiers last season.

“Jeremy has indicated to us that he would like to transfer to pursue another college opportunity,” IU coach Tom Crean said.  “We have put a lot of time and effort into Jeremy, both on and off the court and it is our expectation that he finish strong in school and adhere to team rules. We will be there to provide any help we can give to him to find another program.  We hope he realizes his full potential and we believe we did everything over the last two years to help make that happen.”

The 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward started 15 games this season and scored a career-high 18 points in IU’s 77-46 win over Evansville on Nov. 26. He missed three Big Ten games with what Crean called a “focus issue.”

The Lawrence Central product came to Indiana in the 2012 recruiting class, which also included Yogi Ferrell, Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin.

“I have learned a lot from my time at Indiana,” said Hollowell. “My time here has made me much stronger as a person. Things don’t always go as planned and I am looking forward to getting a fresh start and I hope to make the most of that opportunity.  I want to thank Coach Crean for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to play at IU. He has taught me a lot and has always wanted the best for me. I want to thank all the coaches and all the staff for being there for me.  I want to thank the fans for their great support and I  want to thank my former teammates for taking me under their wing.  I want to thank my present teammates and I wish them all the best.”

A four-star recruit out of high school, Hollowell will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

    That sounds about right.

  • Outoftheloop

    Agree with everything but hard to find a masters program there that IU does not offer at a higher level!

  • Outoftheloop

    They were NIT. Not an easy “dance” with Wichita St!

  • Outoftheloop

    Near the top of the MVC + NIT.

    If Austin could shoot like Bird he would have averaged 40/game this year!

  • Outoftheloop

    Agreed! Austin is a high quality person!

    You are so naive if you think that you can learn from “friends of friends of friends”!

  • KmanCRK

    Why would you assume it’s speculation?

  • Outoftheloop

    We know why Austin left = a chance to play more at a lower level program. We know why Jeremy left = a fresh start out of the State of IN. The others are walk-ons who have never played for a coach as good as Crean in their lives! Who cares why they left?

  • KmanCRK

    You see we were in a discussion of “good recruits”. Not sure those two apply. Maybe you could present a few mid majors that also had interest in those two. Were they even ranked? Good stuff…

  • Outoftheloop

    You are hysterical: “all of a sudden these players”. There are only 2 players: Austin and Jeremy. If you think that they left for the same or similar reasons you are deluded!

    Go back for the JD Ole Man. You are talking about the “law” of libel and slander. It holds that there is a different (lower) level of falsity or irresponsibility that applies to critical statements of “public” persons to make those statements actionable. You don’t “give up” any of your personal life. You just can’t sue for damages as easily!

    As you move “South” you will find many Christians who believe that NOT to help save the souls of your friends, family and neighbors is sin! “If you really believe how can you NOT want their salvation as well as your own!”

    My bad…overlooked Todd Jadlow who was an “import” who was a pretty decent product.

  • ForeverIU

    I keep hearing about Peter’s health. What are his medical/health issues? And are they injury-related?

  • ForeverIU

    I was making a reference to Bird not getting along with Knight and leaving IU for ISU, lol. Wasn’t he recruited by IU initially?

  • Ole Man

    Loop….I remember reading something to the same effect back in those times.
    Why can’t you give credit where it’s due?

  • Ole Man

    Those stats are meaningless. You just stick them out into a cold void as if they had substance.
    They don’t.
    Quite simply; you’re doing everything you can to justify what happened.
    It’s tiresome. Everyone knows why.
    Let it go.

    Austin would still have been on the floor next year. Playing at the 3 spot and probably some 4. He really improved his strength when he was out with the knee injury.
