As it was announced per his Instagram page, former Indiana basketball wing Miller Kopp signs with Limoges CSP Basketball Club in France.

Kopp, who graduated from Indiana in May, averaged 8.1 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 35 starts during his final season at IU. The Houston native made a team-best 63 3-pointers and shot 48.1% (100-of-208) from the field, 44.4% (63-of-142) from the 3-point line, and 82.6% (19-of-23) from the free throw line.

He also is the all-time leader in conference games played in Big Ten men’s basketball history.

Kopp joined the Indiana basketball program in the 2021 offseason after spending three seasons at Northwestern.

Originally, Kopp wanted to exit the Big Ten when he put his name in the portal but once Mike Woodson was hired and the two were able to speak on the phone, that changed Kopp’s mindset.

“When I got in the portal I was like first off, I’m getting out of the Big Ten,” said Miller Kopp on a live stream video with NIL collective group, Hoosiers Connect.  … I got on a call with Woody … From that conversation, I was like, ‘Okay, this guy’s legit’”.

“That’s what I think Woody is so good at, (he’s) no BS. He doesn’t play any games. He’s somebody who you get on the phone with … he’s a guy who’s not going to beat around the bush, he’s not gonna lie to you.”

During his two seasons with the Indiana basketball program, Kopp was identified as one of the leaders for the Hoosiers and that incoming senior guard Trey Galloway wants to mirror as a leader this upcoming season.

“We had a really good group of seniors last year and older guys that really stepped up,” Galloway said when speaking to media this summer. “Miller (Kopp), just the way he led by example was special. He was a guy that never missed a practice and was always in the gym working on his game. He was a really good example that I want to follow just because of the way he worked on the court and the example he led off the court, as well. He was just a special, special guy. He wasn’t our captain, but he was for sure our leader and definitely showed ways to help win. He was a main guy that I looked up to…”

Kopp joins Tyree Appleby (Wake Forest), Kam McGusty (Oklahoma), Simisola Shittu (Vanderbilt) and Kristian Doolittle (Oklahoma) as some former notable P5 players on the roster.
