INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana sophomore guard Armaan Franklin will transfer to Virginia and play for the Cavaliers.

The former Cathedral standout announced the decision on social media Thursday evening.

Franklin finished the 2020-21 season second on the Hoosiers in scoring, averaging 11.4 points per game. On a team that struggled to shoot the ball (11th out of 14 Big Ten teams in 3-point shooting), Franklin was the exception, hitting nearly 43 percent of his shots beyond the arc.

Six Cream and Crimson players entered the transfer portal after last season was over. Franklin joins Al Durham (Providence) as the two who decided to leave. The other four (Parker Stewart, Race Thompson, Khristian Lander, and Jordan Geronimo) all will return to Bloomington next year under new head coach Mike Woodson.
