Indiana announced on Wednesday that former top 60 recruit Stanford Robinson will be transferring out of the program.

“I am grateful to Coach Crean, the assistant coaches and staff and my teammates for helping me become a better man,” said Robinson. “I hope to find something that is closer to family and where I can have more of an impact on the court. I’ve loved everything about being at IU and am thankful for the support of Hoosier Nation.”

Robinson averaged 4.7 points in his two seasons with Indiana, but he saw his playing time dwindle this season, down to 11.9 minutes. Indiana’s release says that Robinson is looking to get more playing time at a program closer to him Maryland home.

“I respect Stan’s desire to contribute more on the court and understand that the opportunity to play closer to your family is something he would like to have happen,” head coach Tom Crean said in a statement. “I think he has grown a great deal and matured in the two years he has been a part of the program and I hope he takes his experiences at Indiana University to remind him of what he can accomplish not only as a basketball player, but as a human being.”
