Former Indiana center Joey Brunk, who spent two years in Bloomington after transferring from Butler, announced late Saturday night that he has committed to Ohio State.

Brunk is the third Indiana player from the 2020-21 Indiana team to transfer after Archie Miller was fired on March 15 and Mike Woodson was hired two weeks later. But senior guard Al Durham and sophomore guard Armaan Franklin transferred out of the conference, with Durham going to Providence and Franklin committing to Virginia.

The Hoosiers could see Brunk often at Ohio State.

Brunk has close ties to current Buckeyes coach Chris Holtmann, who was his coach at Butler and recruited him out of Southport High School in 2016.

Brunk redshirted his freshmen year, but then played two seasons at Butler for LaVell Jordan after Holtmann had left to take the Ohio State job. He graduated from Butler in three seasons and then transferred to Indiana in 2019.
