    Here's the latest on the 12 targets that IU is pursuing the most in the class as crunch time in recruiting continues. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/where-indiana-stands-with-the-class-of-2019-as-we-head-down-the-stretch-run/

    I actually disagree, it would look bad if Romeo were no longer considered top-5 pick and stayed due to his season @ IU. Now, if he is going top-3 and chooses to stay for personal reasons, that would be different. As long as Archie keeps him a top-5, we can call it a success as a one-and-done -- something we need to showcase for top recruits.

    Honestly not sure if I want Franklin... anybody else feel this way or am I crazy? Guess I’ll trust Archie. Would rather take a shot at Ramsey or Newman.. obviously will support the kid if he comes here but just a thought

    Is it bad that I don’t want us to get franklin because I feel we can get much better recruit and I just don’t see him helping the team on what we need? To me he is a role player and we already have a couple guards who are role players. With Romeo being a one and done we need a guard who can come in and score IMO.... Franklin isn’t that guy and won’t even realistically be ready to contribute until a sophomore!

    not sure if this was mentioned or not but Josh Gershon on 247 made/updated his crystal ball pick for TJD yesterday evening. Cant view it because I'm not VIP but IU is still 100% for the prediction so chalk another prediction up for IU I would assume

    If Romeo is a top 5 prospect in the 2019 draft, stays at IU for another year and still goes top 5 in 2020, and as a bonus leads IU to the Final Four, give me more scenarios that look 'bad'. on iU

    What are you basing this on, Brass? The 10/22 line he posted across ten games reported from IMG last season? EYBL season this year, Newman was a better scorer. He's not got a flashy game, and so his highlight vids aren't fun like Ramsey. But he's probably more effective. FWIW, I watched them both in April. Ramsey plays an active, frenetic game. Newman and offball perimeter assassin. Let's look at the EYBL stats, since that's against the same competition. Ramsey played 20 games, averaging 15.6 pts, and going 31/93 from 3, for 33.3%. Newman, in 21 games, scored 17.4 ppg, going 66/168 from 3 for 39.3%. Worth mentioning he went 43% in IHSAA from 3 last year. Newman also had 4.7 rpg, and Ramsey had 3.3. Assists, Ramsey 2.9, Newman 1.1. Turnovers, Ramsey 2.4, Newman 1.8. Steals, Ramsey 1.5, Newman 1.4. Either would be great. In my mind Brandon would be better for us.

    I think Armaan is ours. I am all in on players who want to play for Archie.

    I think you could be right. Villanova is in the lead right now apparently but I think IU is in a lot better position than what people were thinking.

    KB TJD and me an overweight 45 year old with 2 bad knees isca great class!!

    This can’t be stated enough. As long as IU gets Keion and TJD, it’s a successful class

    I will take any of the guys we offered as long as we have KB and TJD.

    Not crazy. I’d rather want Ramsey or Newman. But I’ve no reason to doubt Archie. He knows what he’s doing

    Speaking on behalf of the entire Hoosier Sports Nation, we really appreciate this update, TDH. In terms of Newman.... great to hear confirmation, that I was hearing, separate from you, in terms of an upcoming OV from Newman. I was told it was in the works. And could happen as early as this weekend.

    A little aggressive response, he wasn't claiming much with certainty

    Ramsey also hit 60 % of his 2s. Kid is a threat from everywhere plus a killer defender.

    And double overtime two years before that. I would love for IU to upset Michigan this year and send their fans into a panic.

    If he wants to come here, then great in my opinion. Any kid who knows he will be recruited over based on 'rankings' and still wants to come, that is a player i want. He wants to learn, compete, and earn his minutes down the road. Refreshing really when the theme often seems to be about immediate guaranteed playing time.

    Franklin or Newman would be a good #4 guy in a 4 man class. But we should easily be able to land a better SG in this class.
  26. 1 point
    Ill be disappointed. Crean was landing guys like this...VJ 3, Malik Story, Nick Williams...one month on the job when we were a dumpster fire. We are loaded at every position next season except at 2 guard. No excuse for not landing a top flight 2 guard.

    He may not be the polished shooter that Newman is...and he may not have the elite athleticism and play making ability that Ramsey has but he is a very good ball player. He probably can't come in and have a role right away but is a 4 year player that by his junior and senior year will be a very very good ball player for us. I'm not going to sweat it either way....and I don't think it would stop Ramsey from coming here in the spring IF we have a spot open for him. Ramsey is looking to be a 1 or 2 year player and would start right away for us. If he ends up somewhere else I'm not going to change my mind. They are getting a good basketball player. I'll be excited no matter what. I think we are going to get 1 of the guards on our board regardless...it will just depend on which one.

    If he has an incredible year it won’t matter. Now if he has a disappointing season I would agree

    Knowing some folks in New Albany, this is the general consensus. If he's slated to go high in the draft, he's going. If for whatever reason he falls, he won't. He's in a good position. His family and such won't push/require him to go to the NBA early, regardless of draft stock. He's in a position to go when he feels he's maximized his stock.
  33. 1 point
    Yes. And that is exactly why I mentioned him. We always talk about potential career ending injuries as to why a player should jump from college to the NBA, the same applies to H.S. to NBA decisions.

    Nothing to do with play...but based on week 1 of social media comments....having their name on the jersey represents an accomplishment for so many players to see in person, tv viewership, pride from the family members. I'll stop hammering on this. Just like uniforms/helmets matter on one side of recruiting....little things like names on the jersey matter as well.

    Will 2 or 3 be riding? Been hearing 3 together or in very close proximity of each other just after HH!

    They are both fine player for sure. Newman does one thing especially well which is shoot. And right now it’s looking like Damezi will be our sharpshooter off the bench.

    Bender didn't live up to the hype only because of his serious knee issues. He was phenomenal and would've been outstanding, but for his knees. Here's an article on how he's turned himself into a successful businessman. http://www.sbnonline.com/article/how-jonathan-benders-bad-knees-killed-and-created-his-careers/

    ^^GREAT statistics to back up your perspective! Thanks for providing. I’d say both options would be fantastic for Hoosier nation. I’d prefer Newman over Ramsey slightly. You can’t have enough knockdown shooters on a team!

    Thought i’d update. Going to prep school for a year. Had at least one D1 offer that i know of in Southeast Missouri State. http://www.newsandtribune.com/sports/high-school-notebook-east-heading-to-prep-school/article_b2979662-a587-11e8-a27c-13aa967a79a5.html#utm_campaign=blox&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social

    Should be a good early-season litmus test. Their program is in a very similar spot after getting to 6-6 last year and trying to build on positive momentum from a new coaching regime, but trying to replace 3 defensive players and QB lost to the NFL. Replaced pro-style QB with dual-threat Juco transfer (Bryce Perkins) more well-suited to the offense they want to run. Perkins is a dynamic playmaker, but inexperienced and unproven as a passer. Return a lot of talent at offensive skill positions and linebacker/secondary, but thin up-front on both sides of the ball. Pass protection was a key weakness for them last year and the only expected improvement this year is having a QB who can use his legs to make something out of broken plays. Stopping the run will be key - they struggled running the ball last year, but look to be improved after rushing for over 300 yards in the opener, led by senior RB Jordan Ellis, who had 146 on 20 carries, and 108 from Perkins, including two 20+ yard TD runs. In the passing game, don't expect Perkins to be much of a threat to throw downfield, but they have a trio of speedy receivers (veterans Zaccheaus and Reed, and a freshman Kelly) who can break big plays on short routes. Field goal kicking game is a huge weakness for them, so red zone defense will be key. On offense, should be able to run against their thin front, and Ramsey should have time to throw, but will need to make good decisions as they have some talented ballhawks on the back-end.

    Ramsey is ours to lose as well. Add him to TJD and Brooks. Being a from Indiana and being a Hoosier is what the norm will be again.

    When I read a story like this one , I feel ashamed at ever feeling sorry for my own life situation !! Hoosiernation :: include this young man in your prayers !! May he overcome his own health problems !! P.S. Remember the name Matt Stauder ! He is an example of hard work and willpower ! I hope his attitude rubs off on the Hoosier Football SQUAD !!

    Gillis apparently hurt his knee and might not play the whole year.
