The following is a press release from Iowa State Athletics regarding Ole Miss Transfer Blake Hinson:

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State junior Blake Hinson will miss the 2020-21 season due to a continuing medical condition. The medical condition is unrelated to COVID-19.

Hinson transferred to Iowa State after playing the previous two seasons at Mississippi. At Mississippi, Hinson averaged 9.1 points and made 91 three-pointers while starting 58 of 60 games played.

“In his two and a half months with the program, Blake has become a valuable member of team and a leader within our program,” Iowa State head coach Steve Prohm said. “The most important thing to all of us is his well-being. He will be returning to Florida to be with his family at this time, but will continue his classwork. We fully support his desire to return home and look forward to his return when the time is right for him. I know that when he returns, Blake will continue to be a leader this season and next season when he is back on the court with our team.”

In accordance with HIPPA, Iowa State will have no further comment.
