Parker Stewart, who transferred to Indiana in mid-December, has entered the NCAA transfer portal according to multiple reports.

The news was first reported by Mike Pegram and later confirmed by Eric Bossi and Verbal Commits, which publishes an ongoing list of transfers.

Stewart visited Indiana in December and quickly committed following that trip to the IU campus. He chose Indiana over Memphis, Arkansas and Kansas State.

The 6-foot-5 inch guard previously played for both Pittsburgh and U-T Martin and is a career 36.3 percent 3-point shooter. He did not play in any games for Indiana last season.

He becomes the third Indiana guard to enter the transfer portal, joining Al Durham Jr. and Armaan Franklin.

Stewart’s tie to Indiana was associate head coach Kenya Hunter, who had a strong relationship with his father, the late Anthony Stewart. Anthony Stewart unexpectedly passed away on Nov. 15 at age 50.

At UT-Martin, Stewart was named to the All-Ohio Valley Conference second team. He averaged 19.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and shot 34 percent from 3-point range.

The 22-year old began his career at Pittsburgh where he averaged 9.1 points per game as a freshman. He shot 38 percent on 3-pointers and 80 percent from the free throw line.
