  1. The only way I think of Hulls and Smith in the same light is when it comes to being undersized -- and how that impacts their recruitment. Jordy was sending out film to coaches before he finally started getting some good offers. Smith is a true PG, Jordy a true SG. Smith has better handles and is a better passer. Jordy was a better shooter. That was his elite skill that ultimately got him offers. If Smith truly gets to 6-1 or taller, he will blow up.
  2. Smith plays against some of the best competition in the state every game, he is a better athlete, faster, and he has better handles. They are both good shooters. But what really sets Smith apart is his court vision. He makes passes that blow your mind. That is something that Brown has too, but Smith is elite seeing the floor, and in my opinion you have to have something elite to get serious high major attention. To be sure Smith doesn't have any real offers yet and the gap isn't really that wide, but those are the factors that I believe set him apart and why he will ultimately be a more coveted recruit.
  3. I believe the latter. I have no reason for concern about Kaufman and Miller. The staff can't sit back and hope and put all their eggs on those baskets either.
  4. 5-star guard that IU offered today. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-hoosiers-offer-class-of-2022-five-star-guard-justice-williams/
  5. Did a background story on him earlier this week. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-class-of-2021-names-to-know-james-graham-iii/
  6. Five former IU baseball stars on MLB 60-man rosters so far. Two more could make it. One surprising exclusion. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/hoosiers-in-the-mlb-five-former-iu-stars-on-60-man-rosters-so-far/
  7. Indiana had a zoom meeting today with Gunn according to Nick Baumgart. Hear him talk about IU and much more. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/listen-iu-basketball-2022-in-state-recruiting-target-c-j-gunn-on-the-hoosier-experience-podcast/
  8. My guess -- it is a relationships business and Evan has a ton of relationships with college basketball coaches.
  9. He is making a major decision and he is a very thoughtful guy that sees no reason to rush anything. From our standpoint it may seem to be dragging along. From his, it is a huge decision that has been screwed up by the pandemic and he still have plenty of time. Even if he is 90/10 pro IU, and I am not saying he is, there is still no need to rush it if you look at it from his vantage point.
  10. Q&A with Trey Kaufman from the weekend. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-class-of-2021-priority-forward-trey-kaufman-talks-restarting-aau-games-and-recruiting/
  11. Things I noticed on Saturday - he talks constantly in a good way, he helps the opponents up off the floor, he will go and clean up sweat off the floor. He is just 100 percent engaged in every aspect. From a basketball standpoint his court vision is off the charts.
  12. He told me they think he may end up 6-11 to 7-0.
  13. This is more of a fun story than a serious recruitment at this point. But the kid is good and will likely end up high major. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-2023-forward-gus-yalden-has-a-unique-connection-to-indiana/
