In a widely expected move, Northwestern transfer forward Miller Kopp has withdrawn his name from the NBA Draft process. Jeff Goodman of Stadium was the first to report the news on his Twitter page.
Over three seasons at Northwestern, the 6-foot-7 Kopp 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.
Kopp announced his transfer to IU in April. The Houston, Texas product arrived in Bloomington last month with two years of eligibility remaining. Kopp utilized the draft process to obtain feedback from NBA scouts and executives, something we have seen several Indiana players do in recent years prior to their return to Bloomington.
Under NCAA rules, in order to retain college basketball eligibility, college players who have entered the 2021 NBA Draft must withdraw by Wednesday, July 7. Once the deadline passes, The Daily Hoosier will take a team-by-team look at anticipated 2021-22 Big Ten rosters later this week.
