A day after Indiana lost freshman forward Noah Vonleh to the NBA draft, three Hoosiers announced they are transferring out of the program Monday.

Forwards Jeremy Hollowell and Austin Etherington, and walk-on guard Jonny Marlin, all plan to transfer.

Vonleh, 6-foot-10, averaged 11.3 points and nine rebounds for the Hoosiers, who missed the NCAA Tournament this season.

Indiana announced that Hollowell and Etherington are leaving and Marlin’s father told the Indianapolis Star his son is transferring to a non-Division I program.

Hollowell averaged 5.7 points and 3.5 rebounds in 62 games over two seasons, starting 15 this season.

“Jeremy has indicated to us that he would like to transfer to pursue another college opportunity,” coach Tom Crean said in a statement released by the school. “We hope he realizes his full potential and we believe we did everything over the last two years to help make that happen.”

Hollowell said in the press release he wants “a fresh start.”

“Things don’t always go as planned,” Hollowell said. “I want to thank Coach Crean for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to play at IU. He has taught me a lot and has always wanted the best for me.”

Etherington averaged 10.6 minutes per game this season after missing most of 2012-13 with a fractured kneecap. He plans to graduate in May and seek a one-time graduate transfer exception.

“After talking with my family, I have decided to move forward with the next chapter in my life,” Etherington said in the release. “After graduating in May, I will pursue other options for my remaining two years of eligibility.”

Marlin, a redshirt sophomore who transferred to Indiana from IUPUFW two seasons ago, played 18 games, averaging just 2.4 minutes.
