The wave of transfers across college basketball has struck at Indiana.
In an unsurprising move, sophomore forward Clifton Moore will seek an opportunity elsewhere after playing two seasons with the Hoosiers.
Moore released the following statement:

The Pennsylvania native played a total of 60 minutes during the 2018-19 season and averaged 1.3 points and 1.7 rebounds per contest. He had not seen meaningful game action since a January 30 game against Rutgers.
Moore had season highs of five points against Nebraska and five rebounds against Central Arkansas. He saw his most extensive action (eight minutes) in that December contest against Central Arkansas.
He appeared in nine games as a freshman and scored six points.
The 6-foot-10 and 230 pound Moore will have to sit out a year and then will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Moore was originally recruited to Indiana by former head coach Tom Crean.
The move frees up a scholarship on the Hoosier roster. With Moore gone, Indiana has one opening for the 2019-20 season. If Romeo Langford leaves for the NBA as is widely expected, the Hoosiers will have two available scholarships for the upcoming season.
