Indiana center Michael Durr enters the transfer portal

Indiana center Michael Durr, the program’s backup for Trayce Jackson-Davis this past season, has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

The 7-foot Durr transferred to Indiana last May from South Florida.

In 30 games for the Hoosiers, Durr averaged 1.5 points and one rebound in 7.1 minutes per game.

Over 117 career games between Indiana and South Florida, Durr has averaged 5.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and .8 blocked shots in 19.2 minutes per game.

Since Durr transferred last offseason without sitting out, he would have to sit out unless he is a graduate transfer.

Durr was one of five Indiana players who was suspended for the team’s 59-51 loss at Northwestern on Feb. 8.

Last spring, Mike Woodson spoke highly of Durr’s potential when the program announced his addition.

“Michael will add a tremendous physical presence to our team,” Woodson said last May. “He’s a veteran player who has started more than 80 games at the Division I level. I think he has shown he is an excellent rebounder, his free throw shooting is markedly improved and he can help us offensively and defensively down low. He’s a true center who will make us better.”

Durr’s impact, however, was minimal as he played a minimal role in the rotation behind Trayce Jackson-Davis, Race Thompson and Jordan Geronimo.

The Atlanta native has one year of eligibility remaining.
