BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana is continuing to go after players in the transfer portal. After Virginia Tech guard Jalen Cone put Indiana in his final seven schools on Friday, another transfer is heavily considering the Hoosiers.

Xavier Johnson, a transfer from Pittsburgh, has Indiana in his final four schools.

According to Jeff Borzello of ESPN, Johnson's final four features Indiana, Baylor, Houston and St. Joseph's.

In addition to scoring this season, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound point guard also led his team in assists with 5.7 per game.

Johnson told Eric Bossi of 247Sports that he describes himself as "probably one of the fastest guards in the country."
