Al Durham still hasn’t come all the way out and said it. He participated in Senior Day ceremonies, but said at the time he had no answer for whether or not he’ll return for the fifth season made possible by the NCAA to deal with the effects of COVID-19.
But Friday morning and early afternoon provided more signs that the senior guard will be ending his Indiana career after four seasons, 123 games, 97 starts, and 1,035 points. One after another, his teammates posted messages of appreciation for Durham’s tenure on their Twitter accounts and Durham made a point to thank each of them. It was another sign, in case one was needed, of how universally respected and adored Durham has been in his time at Indiana.
Those tweets follow.
Update: Durham sent out his on tweet on Friday afternoon that signaled his departure.
Uno Out…Thank You 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/ME7Q0dQfAX
