Marlin headed to Bloomington

Jonny Marlin, who left the IPFW men's basketball program less than two weeks ago, is headed to Indiana University in Bloomington, where he hopes to land a spot with the Hoosiers as a walk-on.

Marlin, the 5-foot-10 point guard who led the Mastodons with 3.5 assists as a freshman last season, told The Indianapolis Star that he met with IU coach Tom Crean for a half hour, and was encouraged.

"(Crean) said the hardest workers most likely play," Marlin told the newspaper. "As a walk-on, I'm at a disadvantage because I'm not someone he actively recruited. But at the same time, I started most of the games at IPFW and I feel like I can go down there and get better. If nothing else, I feel like I can make big contributions through practice."

Marlin was second on the IPFW team in minutes played, averaging 27.2, and he averaged 4.3 points.

"I'm happy I was at IPFW for a year," Marlin told the Star. "I feel like that was where I was supposed to be. But I looked at some things that were more important in my life and feel like God is leading me down this path."
