According to FanRag Sports' Jon Rothstein, IU junior forward Juwan Morgan is primed for a big year in Bloomington.

Rothstein included Morgan among his list of 20 breakout players for the upcoming college basketball season.

"(IU head coach) Archie Miller loves this versatile forward, whom former Hoosier head coach Tom Crean used at four different positions the past two years," Rothstein wrote. "With James Blackmon, O.G. Anunoby, and Thomas Bryant no longer a part of Indiana’s program, look for Morgan to potentially be Indiana’s second-leading scorer next season behind Robert Johnson."

Earlier this summer, Miller has also expressed optimism for the success Morgan can have in his system.

"Looking at our front court, like I said before, I think Juwan really fits how we play,” Miller said. "Being able to space the floor is going to be something that's vital to what we're doing. He's going to give us a guy that I think can really do that."

Morgan started in 20 of the 32 games he played in last season, averaging 7.7 points and 5.6 rebounds in 22.6 minutes per game.
