Let's take a look at who is leaving Indiana, who is returning and which new players are coming into the program.
Indiana is losing four seniors in Will Sheehey, Evan Gordon, Jeff Howard and Taylor Wayer. At the semester break, Luke Fisher transferred to Marquette, and just recently Austin Etherington and Jeremy Hollowell left the program. But perhaps the biggest departure will be Noah Vonleh to the NBA draft. Vonleh was the Big Ten freshman of the year this season as he averaged 11.3 points and nine rebounds per game, which was the best in the Big Ten.
There is plenty of roster space to fill right now in Bloomington, Ind., but hardly anyone left in the 2014 class to fill needs. They are, however, still involved with ESPN 100 forward Josh Cunningham, who could bring a combination of scoring and defense to the small forward/power forward spot.
When you analyze Indiana's future roster, it's important for the coaching staff to land some quality players with size in the frontcourt -- prospects who can score and/or be an elite rebounder or shot blocker.
