CHICAGO, ILL. – Iowa men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery suddenly has an extra scholarship available. The Hawkeyes sent out a release Tuesday, confirming freshman guard Patrick Ingram plans to transfer.
“I would say there is nobody we’re looking at right now,” McCaffery said of filling the void. “You never say never on something like that, but we’re not locked in on anybody.”
The signing period ends this week, and McCaffery indicated that if he did make an offer, it would likely be to a potential transfer.
McCaffery, who was in Chicago for Big Ten meetings, said playing time was only part of the reason Ingram left.
“I think it was a little more than that,” McCaffery said. “He wanted to be closer to home.”
Ingram started once and appeared in a total of 19 games, averaging less than a point.
Scheduling: McCaffery said Iowa’s schedule is becoming a little more clear. It appears Iowa will play at Penn State and at Indiana next season, with home games against Purdue and Nebraska.
