    As I understand, his recruitment ended a long time ago in regards to Indiana Men's Basketball. I stress the long time ago part.

    I apologize for wasting your time with my opinion on this as CLEARLY this is directed at me. Sorry to bother.

    Same as it has been since last July. Maybe 2 more weeks? Guessing on timeline. Not guessing on destination.

    Not a lot of upside in a 6'0 SG. Good offensive player, body a long way to go, defensively not totally interested. I think mid-major is probably a good level for him in due time.

    Caleb Love

    Not sure I'd classify Love as a PG. Very good passer, good vision, good handle but his ability to score in a lot of ways just makes me think he is a well-rounded guard.

    I don't expect Indiana to recruit this player.

    I do think there will be a 4th, if I was forced to guess, but it won’t be a HS player since IU is done recruiting 2019’s.

    Could be later January. After about 2-3 weeks ago, it was never going to happen in December or early January. Too many variables with family, holidays, outrageous travel. Patience is a virtue. This past weekend I was told, from someone who speaks with his Dad very, very regularly that he has eliminated a school that is mentioned regularly. Notice I said mentioned ^^^. Not that anyone else is a serious threat.... 😇

    I was told Indiana is looking to bring in two guards in 2020. The preference is a combo guard and a SG. Although, these terms are a bit archaic... They are looking to bring in two players who are perimeter-oriented. I think Michigan has a lead here, hence my term "uphill". I don't think the player can go wrong going to either Michigan or Indiana.

    Indiana will push hard for both. Beilein isn't one to hit the road but he went to watch Morton the other day in-person. Definitely an uphill fight for both. We shall see what transpires. After Indiana's game with Jacksonville on December 22, they have a lot of time off before the Illinois game on January 3. That break, while beneficial for IU's health concerns, also affords the staff a chance to hit up a lot of the holiday tournaments. Should be very, very telling who they go and see over this time.

    That and they aren't sure if he is a fit defensively. He does look like a good one. But "good enough?" should be the question. Ultimately, I think what happens with Love and Morton will have a DIRECT impact on whether or not he gets an offer.

    The staff is unsure, as of yet, if he is good enough for an offer.

    I'm usually not one for guessing... Though, the Brooks and Thompson... I suppose, to a degree.... are "guesses" since I could be off by a few days here or there.

    Thinking this goes into January. Similar to Trayce, there was an initial timeframe where I was confident it would happen over “X” amount of days. That’s recruiting, to a “T.” Oh well, glad it is closer to happening (days/ weeks) then when I first heard that it was likely (last July). Thankfully, I can wait. And I’m sure everyone else can too.
