Indiana guard CJ Gunn to enter the transfer portal

Indiana sophomore guard CJ Gunn will enter his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

A 6-foot-6 product of Lawrence North, Gunn played two seasons for the Hoosiers and appeared in 49 games.

He scored a career-high 17 points in IU’s season-ending loss to Nebraska in the 2024 Big Ten tournament quarterfinals but all of his minutes came after the game was already decided.

A class of 2022 recruit, Gunn originally committed to Indiana under Archie Miller. Following the hiring of Mike Woodson, Gunn affirmed his commitment to the program in the spring of 2021.

His career as a Hoosier was largely a disappointment.

Known for his 3-point shooting out of high school, Gunn shot just 19-for-74 (25.7 percent) from distance in two seasons at Indiana.

He also shot the ball poorly inside the arc. Gunn was just 39-for-101 (38.6 percent) on 2s over two seasons.

During Indiana’s five-game winning streak late in the season, Gunn played a total of four minutes and did not play at all against Wisconsin, Michigan State and Penn State.

As a high school recruit, Gunn was ranked the No. 178 player nationally by the 247Composite.

He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining at his next school. The transfer portal opened March 18 and will close May 1.
