Indiana basketball secured a commitment from Langdon Hatton, a transfer from Bellarmine, during his official visit to the campus today.

Under the strategic leadership of Mike Woodson and his coaching staff, Indiana has been actively reshaping its roster through the transfer portal this spring. Hatton’s commitment is seen as a pivotal addition to what is already considered an outstanding class. Alongside Oumar Ballo, Kanaan Carlyle, Luke Goode, and Myles Rice, Hatton’s commitment solidifies Indiana’s position with 247Sports.com ranking the four-player class as the second-best transfer portal haul in the nation, just behind Arkansas.

Standing at 6’10”, Hatton is a power forward/center hailing from Georgetown, Indiana. He attended North Harrison High School, where he frequently faced off against notable opponents like Purdue’s Trey Kaufman-Renn and Kooper Jacobi of Silver Creek (now at Eastern Illinois). Despite receiving numerous mid-major offers out of high school, including interest from Clemson, Hatton ultimately chose William & Mary before transferring to Bellarmine after one season.
