Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson announced Monday afternoon that former 4-star cornerback Wesley Green has transferred to Indiana from South Carolina. Green will not be eligible to play this season due to the NCAA transfer rules. Green, a 5-10 175-pound corner, redshirted his freshman season for the Gamecocks.

Wilson commented on the transfer saying, "we recruited Wesley; Coach Brandon Shelby has a strong relationship with him and he contacted us when he left South Carolina. We welcome him to our program. He's a talented young man and he will be a quality contributor."

Green played his high school ball for Martin Luther King Jr. H.S. in Lithonia, Ga. where he was ranked at the 160th best player nationally, 12th best in the state of Georgia, as well as the 16th best prospect at his position. He chose South Carolina over offers from Ole Miss, and Georgia.

Green will give the Hoosiers a top flight corner for 2016. He should immediately vie for playing time when he is eligible. He will have three years left to play when he starts his Hoosier career.
