Former Northwestern forward Miller Kopp commits to Indiana

Indiana picked up its second new player for the 2021-22 season in as many days.

Former Northwestern forward Miller Kopp announced that he is transferring to Indiana on Tuesday morning.  He broke the news on his Twitter page.

Over three seasons at Northwestern, the 6-foot-7 Kopp has averaged 26.4 minutes, 9.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists per contest while shooting 36 percent from 3-point range on 339 attempts.  Kopp started 74 times in 87 games for the Wildcats.

As a sophomore in 2019-20, Kopp started all 31 games and led the team in minutes with 999 and 405 points (13.1 ppg).  He shot 39.6 percent from deep and connected on a team-high 65 three-point shots.  As a junior in 2020-21, Kopp’s numbers fell off.  He averaged 11.3 points and shot just 33 percent from behind the arc.

The Houston, Texas product arrives in Bloomington with two years of eligibility remaining.

Out of high school Kopp chose Northwestern over Michigan, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, Texas A&M and Butler. A four-star recruit, he was the No. 66 recruit in the nation according to Scout and No. 113 by 247Sports out of Houston Christian High School.

With the addition of Kopp, Indiana has now filled its allotment of 13 scholarship players for the 2021-22 season, although the transfer portal remains open at all times for players to come and go.
