Indiana native Trevor Thompson is transferring from Virginia Tech. Could IU be in the mix?
Trevor Thompson, a big man originally from Indiana, announced Saturday that he will transfer from Virginia Tech. Thompson was a freshman for a Hokies this season.
Thompson, a 6-foot-11, 210-pound big man, averaged 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game for Virginia Tech in his only season. He shot 41 percent from the field and 65 percent from the foul line.
Indiana may not be interested in Thompson, but it's fair to believe the Hoosiers will at least inquire about the center. He's a big body, but he would have to sit out next season.
Thompson has ties to the current Indiana roster because he played on the same Eric Gordon All-Stars AAU team as both Devin Davis and Collin Hartman.
