After three years in Evanston during which he started in all but 13 of the 87 games he played, Miller Kopp is leaving Northwestern by way of transfer to conference foe Indiana.
Kopp announced the news on Twitter and Instagram at 7:55 a.m. CT on Tuesday morning.

It was reported on Monday night that Kopp had narrowed down his landing spots to Indiana, Oregon State and Utah, with the Hoosiers seemingly (and accurately) in the driver’s seat.
Despite Kopp finishing his final season with NU on a cold streak from three, his addition makes sense for an Indiana team that struggled mightily in the shooting department during the 2020-21 season. Sophomore Armaan Franklin was the only player on their roster to shoot over 40% from deep (42.4% to be exact) while attempting enough threes to qualify for percentage leaderboards, and overall they shot a dismal 32.4% from behind the arc on the season.
Kopp leaves the program having scored 832 career points along with 122 made threes per CBB Reference, and as a sophomore in the 2019-20 season he led the ‘Cats in scoring with an average of 13.6 points per game.
Northwestern split the season series with IU in 2021, and in all likelihood will face Kopp and his new squad not once but twice in the upcoming year.
The Killer Mopp jokes were fun while they lasted.
If anyone needs me, I'll be watching Dad and thinking about Kevin Coble and that there's a Collins recruit who's spoonerism is literally killer mopp because we're in a computer simulation. https://t.co/JDbrCwOEnX— beng (@kicknyrgios) February 10, 2018
