  1. Indiana offered today. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-hoosiers-offer-class-of-2021-trey-patterson/
  2. Third commit in two days, all from different states. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-football-recruiting-aamaris-brown-is-third-commit-in-two-days-for-hoosiers/
  3. Not to take too much shine off of his presence there yesterday, but I'm not sure if he would have been there except that his brother was playing. Johnny Brunk is class of 2021 at my alma mater, Roncalli. I knew he was at the camp but I didn't know who he was so I asked Joey when he just by chance was standing right next to me. Johnny was on Leal's team. What I wondered but didn't get a chance to ask was whether Joey was a late bloomer at Southport because Johnny is only around 6-2 or 6-3. Anyone with Southport ties remember how big Joey was at this age?
  4. Likely discussed elsewhere, but thought this deserved its own thread. Good news for JMo. He really liked the fit in Utah after a workout there. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/reports-juwan-morgan-signs-free-agent-deal-with-utah-jazz/
  5. They have I just didn't include every single one of them because there were a lot. I'll include them though because if they could end up being a big player if the blue bloods don't snatch him up.
  6. Indiana enters the mix for this highly coveted 5-star. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/indiana-offers-class-of-2021-five-star-shooting-guard-max-christie/
  7. I actually embed the show on The Daily Hoosier so you can find it there any time on the right hand side of the page if you are on a PC. It is good because it is all IU all the time, and he usually has some good guests, present company excluded. I'm usually the last segment on Tuesdays.
  8. I don't think so. I believe it is on in Evansville on their ESPN affiliate.
  9. While Trey and Leal have different games, they are both around 6-5 with some similarities. Then you have guys on the board like Cross, Steward, Davis, Diarra that have or probably will visit. I just think if I was Leal and I really deep down wanted to got to IU, I wouldn't want anyone else jumping the line. See Aaron Henry.
  10. I'll be surprised if it goes into August but I am not expecting anything imminent either. But Trey seems to be a non nonsense guy. When he is 100% sure he won't stretch it out.
  11. Those pick percentages do not reflect picks that had been changed. In other words you could change to the right a school a minute for the announcement and make it appear as though you got it right all along.
  12. Here's the way I look at it. The kids that DON'T go to prep school are the kids that appreciate the game the way we all do. They don't have a foot out the door. They want to be an Indiana All-Star and Mr. Basketball, and they want to win a state title. That stuff means something to them like it does to most of us. And those are the kids that we end up getting to watch. The others guys move on and do their thing and that's fine. We get to watch the guys that pour the heart and soul into playing for their high schools. But it is what is, and being the grouchy get off my lawn guy isn't going to change anything (not suggesting you are). At the very least, don't be this guy from Fort Wayne that went out swinging -- taking shots at an 18 year old kid and his family because of his prep school decision, before losing his job soon thereafter. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/keion-brooks-jr-is-going-to-la-lumiere-and-the-world-isnt-ending/
  13. I spoke to someone that was able to confirm that they are targeting an early July visit. Compiled more information here. The rebounding numbers are insane to me, but I confirmed those are accurate. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-class-of-2021-names-to-know-aminu-mohammed/
  14. I hate the whole prep school thing too, and I hate class basketball. I am a traditionalist. But if I'm looking out for the best interest of my son, I'm not having him play the 127th schedule in the state of Indiana, rarely ever see guys his own size with any actual skills, and face no competition at practice. He doesn't need to rush his development if he doesn't want to, but he just isn't going to get much out of playing there compared to what he would get at a prep school.
  15. Agreed. He is doing fine on the EYBL, especially considering that he playing a year up. The question is what will he do that will be elite at the high major level to avoid being just another guy? He's got plenty of time to develop whatever that is.
  16. That's my question after watching him a few times, viewed through the lens of him being a high profile recruit. SInce he's 2021 he has plenty of time to develop but in my mind it is a legitimate question right now. And no matter what he'll be a valuable addition to a high major roster. I know some will hate this comment, but he is someone that would seemingly do well at prep school for a year or two rather than playing in 1A, although I know they do play some decent schools during the regular season.
  17. Observations from the IU team camp. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/indiana-basketball-recruiting-2019-team-camp-observations/
  18. Major thing to note in that regard -- Tayven's dad is not Dale Davis.
  19. Cool story about how he picked IU, and a great interview with him. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/how-landon-turners-dad-and-dingy-purdue-helped-give-iu-the-1981-title/
  20. Archie didn't offer anyone in the 2020 class until 2018. He only offered 2021 five stars Clarke and Lander in the spring/summer of 2018. So this 2022 offer in 2019 is clearly a statement.
  21. You make a fair point, but I think that dynamic is always going to be there both for IU and for UK's of the world that flip their roster every year. I think IU has to get a 2020 PG unless they think Durham or Franklin can be a primary ball handler. If we go into the 2020 season with just Phinisee and he gets hurt -- then what?
