Isaiah Stewart Cuts IU

Recommended Posts

Friends,

 Let's really try not stay on topic here. Guessing and projecting at rosters in December isn't a good use of anyone's time. 

Isaiah Stewart- I hope he goes to Michigan State. I have a belief though, they are third of his 3 finalists.  

Coach...did you mean Carey who is down to 3? I thought Stewart had a final list of 6 or so. If he's down to 3, then I missed that.

Coach so you aren't hearing anything about this "surprise commit" that others are talking about? Thanks for all the info

Sounds like just the 3 players we been after or have already gotten.

I think the surprise recruit that some were talking about was Ethan Morton a 2020 player reclassifying.

...and I don't expect that unless we have a guard transfer out.  I suspect he likes Archie well enough to come in 2019 or 2020...whenever we need him.  No inside information...just a gut feeling.

Stewart sounds great, but there's no room for him and I don't think Archie wants to just load up on 5-stars where someone is unhappy about playing time.  I just hope Stewart doesn't fall for Calipari's line of crap.  He seems like a better/smarter kid than that.

I am wondering if Stewart is trying to get the best deal $$$

I understand the concern. But I always find it dicey to post this about a kid, even if just wondering. It really questions his character. And if it is not the case, this can be reputation damaging. 

If there is no actual.word of this happening, I dont see why even mention it. We could say I wonder if we paid Romeo.....and that just seems wrong to me.

No offense, just my opinion.  :)

I’m still hearing IU is interested in Stewart, this all just happened in the last couple weeks.  Like I said I’m not saying we lead or anything but his buddies are trying. Probably won’t get him but I wouldn’t bet against it either at this point.

Assuming we get Brooks, I will be ecstatic with him TJD and Franklin for our 2019 recruiting class.  If we land anyone else after Brooks whether that be Stewart, Morton reclassifying or a grad transfer, that will be a bonus IMO.

Think about what your saying..we have 1 5 star, probably getting another 5 star,we got a 5 star in Romeo  and your talking about a 5 star in Stewart..when was that last time we were even in a position like this,we have come along way imo..lol

Personally, I'd rather not go down that road.  We all have our ideas and reasons, but I don't see anything positive that comes from speculating on transfers.

I’m not going to speculate on that.  Plenty of time for each of these players to prove their worth to the team

Agreed. Transfers happen and these things have a way of working themselves out. No need for further speculation, just my opinion.

But we are speculating on getting Stewart which means if we got him somebody would indeed transfer... so if we can’t even discuss that then we shouldn’t discuss anyone beyond brooks!

If we oversign, I am confident the coaching staff has all contingencies worked out.  To speculate who is transferring may be inflicting a wound on an individual and the team from what is supposed to be a fan.  My opinions, but it's why I prefer not to go down that road.  If I am being brought in to a business that has X spots for Y people, I am going to put my best foot forward if I am new, or a veteran employee.  Fortunately, the business model usually only has management to worry about.

I totally understand that but this is a fan forum we discuss everything on here and people aren’t afraid to dog players on an hourly basis I just don’t understand why it’s such a big deal. I feel like it’s a known thing we will probably oversign

Coach Crean oversigned.  I haven't heard of Archie doing that.

If we get Brooks, aren't we over by 1 until Romeo decides?

Yes.  There is a scholarship grid pinned under the “General Basketball Discussion” section.  A total of 13 scholarships are available.

Brooks won't sign until spring. I'd say we'll have a pretty good idea about Romeo by then. 

...and I don't mind speculating positively about Romeo going to the NBA...That's night and day different than speculating about a kid's failure and transfer

Well said and at that point if we do have someone transfer and someone wants to come and be a Hoosier a year early so be it!!!

Speculating about a grad transfer seems ok to me though. Since that is not highlighting any sort of failure with our program but rather another opportunity for a player to advance their academics somewhere else.

The problem with that is we typically don't have the information about whether someone is on track to graduate early.

It is hard for me to talk in a negative manner for anyone of the guys that choose to come play for Indiana. You never want to see guys leave but if it is a win win then I understand it, but just telling guys to hit the road I dont like that or like saying whom i think will or should leave to make room for a 5*

I'm really trying to hang on to this sentiment as well....but since it's been 16 years since our last F4 and 25+ since we were a dominant program...I find myself getting further and further away from the right thing to do. Get me the very best who want to be at IU. If that means someone has to leave....I guess so be it. And before the moral compass folks come at me I struggle with me thinking this way.
