Indiana freshman big man Luke Fischer, a top-100 recruit coming out of high school, will transfer to another school.

Fischer was injured in the preseason and averaged 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 13 games this season. Indiana coach Tom Crean has used freshman forward Noah Vonleh in the middle, which has meant limited minutes for both Fischer and sophomore Hanner Mosquera-Perea.

"Luke has decided to withdraw from Indiana and pursue another educational and basketball opportunity," Crean said in a release. "He explained to us he is looking for a different fit for him. We hate to see a fine young man like Luke leave, but he has made his decision and we wish the entire Fischer family well."

Fischer, who scored 10 points and blocked three shots in his final game against Kennesaw State last week, was part of a highly touted recruiting class that also included Vonleh, Troy Williams, Stanford Robinson and Devin Davis.

Indiana is 10-3 and opens Big Ten play on Tuesday afternoon at Illinois.
