A familiar face will be wearing the uniform of one of Indiana State's visitors at Hulman Center during the 2021-22 season.
Terre Haute native Jaylen Minnett has transferred to Missouri State. Minnett, a graduate transfer, has played previously at IUPUI for four seasons, and was a starter for the Jaguars for the last two seasons.
Minnett has averaged 12.6 points over his career, but has averaged 16.6 and 16.4 points in the previous two seasons. Minnett hit a 3-point bucket in 69 consecutive games at one point, fifth on the all-time NCAA list.
“Jaylen is an experienced, dynamic scoring guard that will allow us to play an even more up-tempo, aggressive style on both the offensive and defensive sides of the floor,” Missouri State coach Dana Ford said in a Missouri State press release. “His versatility and shooting ability allows for us to play him with anyone at any time.”
Minnett was an Indiana All-Star at Terre Haute South in 2017 and scored 1,782 career points for the Braves.
