A source told AllHoosiers.com that Hurt was concerned with Indiana's uptempo style of play. Hurt weighs 280 pounds.
The source also said Hurt expressed concern about Hanner Mosquera-Perea, who would still be at IU for the two years Hurt was.
Indiana coach Tom Crean visited Hurt's junior college on Tuesday. The source said Hurt's cancellation was a mutual decision between he and IU. The Hoosiers remain in heavy pursuit of 2014 center Goodluck Okonoboh, who took his official trip to Bloomington last weekend.
Hurt is considering a number of other schools, including Wichita State.
