2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

Recommended Posts

Now that the 2018-2019 season is finally behind us, we can look forward to the 2019-2020 season. 

We know we are losing Morgan and Fitzner from scholarship.  Also walkons McRoberts, Jager, and Taylor.  We have already aquired one Pre-ferred walk-on for next season.

What else will we see? 

Will there be any other scholarships open up? 

Hoping this thread can be used for all the off season roster news, moves and rumors to help keep things more organized and easy to find and follow.  

Discuss

Current Events:

Scholarship Players

Juwan Morgan Senior - Trayce Jackson-Davis

Evan Fitzner Senior - Armaan Franklin

Clifton Moore Sophomore Transfer - OPEN

What Transfers might we be after?

I would like to see us go after the Brunk kid from Butler. 

 

As others have said, we need a dead eye shooter.  However, how many scholarships will we even have available?

Morgan and Fitzner out, TJD and Franklin in

Until we hear otherwise, only speculation remain on any other open scholarships.  The most likely an opening being Langford declaring for the draft. 

 could see anywhere from 0 - 4 more.

Getting Brunk probably means we dont get a big who can score down low. He probably gets minutes over Moore, Thompson and Forester though. Cant see those three as much more than role players off the bench.

Suppose Romeo declares and after workouts etc, is told he's not a lottery pick, does he return?

If I were a parent of many of the kids who didn’t play or played out of position I might be inclined to encourage them to transfer.

Why stay? I mean we as fans stay but if you did not grow up an IU fan and you don’t fit the rotation then I see reasons to move on.

I can even understand smiths complaints. If the coaches wanted him to work on stuff so he could play major minutes as a 4 that would limit his practice time working on wing things like ball handling and shooting.

It takes a special kid to play out of position and excel at that. That could explain why Morgan played so lackadaisical so often as well. Not saying Morgan and Smith aren’t special but I can understand being frustrated with how things are playing out.

If Clifton transfers - it is hard to blame him. He needs to go somewhere he can get minutes to fulfill his potential. No inside information but I put the chances of him transferring over 80%. Romeo will go pro - so we have two spots.I hope Forrester and Race stay.

I'm of the same thought. I mean if he just wants an IU education that's cool, but as far as playing time he's not likely to get that during his time here.

Yeah, I mean Smith could get in the gym and get shots up and work on his ball handling skills. There are plenty of team managers who are with the program to rebound for players at all hours of the day. I’d hope if Smith wanted to be a wing he’d be busting his @$$ to prove that he was worthy of getting minutes there. I know nothing was ever given to me and when someone said I couldn’t that was just all the more ammo for me to prove them wrong. I guess he could just vent to the media about how he was wronged though.

Give me the kid that’s willing to prove it over talking about it. We need DAWGS.
