BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – IU head coach Mike Woodson announced the addition of transfer Langdon Hatton to the Indiana men’s basketball program on Thursday. Hatton, an Indiana native, will join Indiana after spending three seasons at Bellarmine and William & Mary.

Hatton began his career at William & Mary and earned Coastal Athletic Association Rookie of the Week honors on Jan. 17, 2022. While with the Tribe, he averaged 4.4 points and 2.7 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game. Hatton shot 45.4% (49-of-108) from the floor and 62.3% (33-of-53) from the free throw line.

WOODSON ON HATTON

“Langdon is an experienced, versatile big man that will help us with our frontcourt depth. He is a big body that can work in the post, get after the glass, and step out to knock down a shot. He is an Indiana kid that plays the right way, and we are excited to bring him home to the Hoosier state.”
