Indianapolis Freshman center Eli Holman threw another potential wrench into Indiana's rebuilding project Thursday, telling coaches he intended to transfer before apparently throwing a tantrum in their office that required a call to the campus police.
"His behavior took me, along with the other people in the office, by surprise," IU coach Tom Crean said in a statement released by the university. "We saw him as a danger to himself and wanted to take precautionary measures to help him. We felt bad for Eli and, hopefully, were able to help him."
Police did not arrest Holman, but took statements from Crean and others.
