Mike Woodson and Indiana Basketball have found their point guard of the future. Washington State transfer Myles Rice has committed to the Hoosiers. Rice comes to Bloomington after an outstanding freshman season where he averaged 14.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.8 assists.

Rice earned All-Pac 12, All-Pac 12 Freshman, and Pac-12 Rookie of the Year honors. The Georgia native was one of Indiana's prime targets during the offseason. With Xavier Johnson gone, Indiana needs more athleticism in the backcourt. Rice gives them that.

Indiana returns Gabe Cupps and Trey Galloway as its primary guards. Cupps was thrown into the rotation due to Xavier Johnson's injury issues. Galloway is not a point guard, so Rice gives the Hoosiers an athletic ball handler who can penetrate and either finish at the basket or pass.

Other Portal Targets

Rice is not the only priority target for the Hoosiers. Arizona transfer Oumar Ballo is crystalballed to Indiana. The two-time All-Pac 12 performer averaged 12.9 points and 10.6 rebounds for the Wildcats last season.

Combo guard Kanaan Carlyle is also high on Indiana's list. The Stanford transfer would also have three years of eligibility if he transferred to Indiana basketball. Carlyle averaged 11.5 points while with the Cardinal.
