Junior forward Miller Kopp listed his top three schools just yesterday which included Utah, Oregon State, and Indiana; however, he did not wait long to make his decision. The 6-foot-7 forward committed to Indiana this morning and he will give the Hoosiers a much welcome boost to their offensive and defensive firepower. Per Miller, he had more than 20 schools reach out to him expressing their interest in his ability.
Miller cited Woodson as a big reason for his transfer to Indiana. Per ESPN, “Coach Woodson sees my potential as a versatile player and he has a plan for my development,” Kopp said. “With the NBA experience and the respect he has around the game I was curious to at least hear him out. And obviously Indiana has such amazing history and basketball culture which was appealing to me because I’d played against them for three years.”
Miller has two years of eligibility remaining and averaged 11.3 points and 3.1 rebounds per game last year. He adds a strong three-ball with 98 3-pointers over 54 games and hit 87% of his free throw attempts. He added 19 points in the two games the Wildcats faced Indiana last year.
“I think the Big Ten will see a different player,” he said to ESPN. “Someone who’s a versatile player offensively and more than a shooter. Playing in the open court, playing in ball screens and more swagged up overall, to be frank.”
In two days, Woodson has added both Miller Kopp and high school SG Tamar Bates. Both players are strong additions to the Hoosiers that add depth and offensive prowess to a team that lacked it for a lot of the previous year.
Woodson now has a team of 13 scholarship players for this year and 14 for next year.

It is great to see a lineup of players with talents of speed, ball handling, shooting abilities, and knowledge. However, the single concern should be rebounding, inside defense, and muscle. Hopefully a tremendous focus on weight training and body building will add to a well rounded team.
