Parker Stewart will not return to Indiana for 2022-23 season

Redshirt senior guard Parker Stewart will not return to Indiana for his final season of college eligibility.

He broke the news on his Twitter page on Thursday evening.

“Every stop was a blessing, I’m forever grateful,” Stewart wrote.

The Daily Hoosier attempted to reach Stewart via text message for comment but he did not immediately respond.

Stewart started 31 games and appeared in 34 in his lone season with the Hoosiers.  He averaged 6.2 points and shot 39.3 percent from behind the 3-point arc, leading the Hoosiers from long range.  He participated in Indiana’s Senior Night ceremony, signaling his decision to move on after the season.

Hailing from Union City, Tenn., Stewart transferred to IU in January of 2021 from UT Martin where he played for his late father Anthony.  He was with the IU team during the second half of the 2020-21 season but did not play.  Stewart started his college career at Pitt in 2017.

Stewart is the third member of Mike Woodson’s first team to announce they are leaving the program over the last two days.  He follows reserves Khristian Lander and Michael Durr.
