Indiana guard Robert Johnson, the Hoosiers’ second-leading scorer this past season, has options.

The 6-foot-4 guard from Richmond, Va., was a junior this past season in eligibility terms but will earn his degree in May and has the option of being a graduate transfer.

His father told Peegs.com where things stand at this point and how the family will approach things.

“Right now, he’s still with Indiana. He’s going to go through the process, see who they hire and it’ll almost be like going through recruitment.

“We want to see if the style fits Robert, but he wants to finish his career there. We said that when he committed there.”

Johnson will have a degree in sports management in May, his father said.

“He definitely wants to be there. He likes the school. He likes the fans,” his father said.

“He does want to be on a team that will have chance to compete and make it back to the NCAA Tournament.”

This past season, Johnson was IU’s second-leading scorer at 12.8 points per game, second in assists at 2.5 per game and often drew notable defensive assignments.

Johnson was second on the Hoosiers in 3-pointers made with 70, shooting 37 percent from the arc.
