There was a point in time where Larryn Brooks was Indiana women's basketball's undeniable star and the face of the program as an underclassman.

Now she's leaving a second school.

Brooks, who transferred to Texas Tech after her sophomore season playing for then-new head coach Teri Moren, is transferring out of Texas Tech upon graduation this August. The news was announced by the Red Raiders in a team release.

"We were very fortunate to have Larryn as a part of this program for the last two seasons. Larryn's mother is in poor health and (Larryn) has decided to transfer following graduation to be closer to her family," Texas Tech head coach Candi Whitaker said in a team release. "We appreciate her dedication to Lady Raider Basketball and wish her and her family the best."

Brooks is the third player to leave Texas Tech in the last 12 months. Former IU assistant Brandi Poole is an assistant coach with the Red Raider program.

Brooks averaged 9.3 points per game as a redshirt junior. She started all 34 games as a true freshman at Indiana under Curt Miller, becoming the first freshman player in program history to score over 500 points in a single season, and then averaged 10.9 points per game as a sophomore for Moren.
