Jordan Geronimo transfers to Maryland

Former IU men’s basketball forward Jordan Geronimo is staying in the Big Ten.

The Newark, N.J. native announced on Twitter that he’s heading closer to home to play at Maryland.

Geronimo entered the transfer portal in March after Indiana’s season ended. He’ll have two years of eligibility remaining for the Terrapins.

The rising senior played three years for the Hoosiers, and struggled to find a consistent place in their rotation. He frequently flashed potential, with tremendous length and athleticism, but it just never fully came together.

In 2022-23, Geronimo appeared in 27 games, with six starts while Race Thompson was out with a knee injury. He played 12.4 minutes per game, and shot 54.8 percent from the field while averaging 4.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.9 blocks, and 0.5 steals per game. He recorded a double-double against Wisconsin, one of IU’s most important wins of the season.

His strongest statistical season was his sophomore year in 2021-22, when he played in 34 of Indiana’s 35 games. Geronimo posted 4.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks that season. He played a key role in Indiana’s First Four game against Wyoming that year, with 15 points and seven rebounds to help the Hoosiers reach the round of 64.

Across his IU career, Geronimo averaged 3.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, 0.6 blocks, 0.3 assists, and 0.3 steals per game.

Indiana and Maryland will face off twice in the 2023-24 season, once in Bloomington and once in College Park.
