Curtis Jones leaves team, will transfer from Indiana at semester break

Indiana sophomore guard Curtis Jones has left the team and will transfer at the end of the semester, the program announced on Sunday afternoon.

Jones, a 6-foot-4 guard from Richmond (Va.), appeared in seven games this season and averaged three points.

He did not play in Wednesday’s 91-81 loss to Duke in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge and logged just three minutes in Saturday’s 69-55 loss at Michigan.

“We appreciate Curtis’s contributions and wish him nothing but the best in the future,” Indiana coach Archie Miller said in a release.

A former top 100 recruit, Jones committed to Indiana in September of 2015 and chose the Hoosiers over Georgetown, California and Oklahoma State.

His best game in an IU uniform came as a freshman when he scored 15 points in a 103-99 overtime win over Kansas on Nov. 11, 2016.

“I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of the IU basketball program and look forward to finding a new situation where I can achieve the goals I have as a basketball player and as a student,” Jones said in a release.

The departure of Jones leaves Indiana with two available scholarships to use for next season.

    I’m fine with the recruiting too. But I think talk of banners is premature, unless we get a 5star (Romeo).

    Love the name Finn/Finny!

    Actually I looked him up: Kyle Davis. I love Scoochie, by I compared Phinisee to Davis because they are both 6-0.

    Scoochie is great, but I was thinking Kyle Davis because of height.

    Completely disagree. Jones was going to do nothing but ride the pine. This gives Arch another scholly that he can actively use right now to recruit. How is somebody who is not going to play be punitive? Don’t want somebody on the team that doesn’t want to be there.

    That would be a nightmare if he did….but I doubt it. He probably will go somewhere close to home.

    It would be interesting if he chooses another Indiana school to play for. My guess is he will head to a team on the east coast, close to home.
