Did not see this one coming. Or maybe we did?

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament- Minnesota vs Northwestern Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern men’s basketball forward Miller Kopp has entered the transfer portal, according to VerbalCommits on Twitter.

Kopp came to Evanston as a part of the storied 2017 recruiting class, which featured the likes of Pete Nance and Ryan Young, as well as Ryan Greer. The Houston, Texas, native finished this season as the Wildcats’ second-leading scorer, averaging 11.3 points per game behind only Chase Audige. He also averaged three rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. Primarily a shooter, he posted an impressive 13.1 points per game in his sophomore season.

Kopp is the first player on Northwestern’s current roster to enter the transfer portal this offseason, and isn’t necessarily a name many expected to leave Evanston. Regardless, the ‘Cats are now left with a huge hole to fill at one of their forward spots.

The Wildcats now have one less player returning to campus next season, and head coach Chris Collins will now have an extra scholarship to work with on the grad transfer market, or for Patrick Baldwin Jr., who is definitely coming to Northwestern.
