Talked to Trey on Saturday.  He is thinking through some pretty unique stuff in what has been a frustrating summer. I've said for months that I like where IU is here, and I feel even more confide

The IU staff is really confident. And that’s not a guess.

I think if he chooses PU, it is because he thinks they develop big men. I don't see it. PU's bigs are good college players, but have yet to make the jump to the next level. Haas and Hammons are in the G-league. Haas was not even drafted. PU's bigs play with their back to the basket and the NBA has moved away from that style. During the Edward years he had a green light which opened up the paint. However, most years have been completely different. Swanigan was highly touted before going to PU and most talked one and done. After two years he left PU for a late first round pick and a fading NBA career. If you ask if Painter is a good coach I say,"yes". Does he develop players into his system.  Yes, he does. Does he develop players for good NBA careers? No, not really. If the young man chooses PU then that is his choice and I wish him the best. I would love to have him on our team, but in the end it is his choice. He has earned it.

One thing I consider is IU typically gets much higher rated recruits. Cody/Vonleh/Bryant...I’m not sure PU has had any of that level. Swanigan maybe but I never saw his game translating much honestly and don’t blame Painter for that. I’d say Painters guys get better at PU. The big thing is Painter really runs a lot of action for them. They see more touches than I’d say the avg big at another school. Perhaps with better talent we will see more nba success. Hard to turn 3 star talent into nba all stars.

That said I think Trey fits better in our offense. Playing a stretch 4 and running that high ball action pulling bigs out on to the court.

Mike Pegram made a prediction months ago...was it Rabjohns? I haven’t seen anything on 247 site but I saw Rabjohns posted a protected article like 10 minutes ago so maybe he’s mentioning he’s putting a prediction in?

I just went to Peegs and looked at the latest Crystal ball and his prediction was form 5/10 so I don't know where that text the Colonial Crester got came from.

I texted him back...he hasn't gotten back with me so either he messed up or I didn't understand him correctly.

Since it less than a week until Trey makes his commitment.  I am asking for predictions where he ends up.  I am putting it this way if you have to get a considerable amount of money on his decision.  So where does everyone thinks he will end up commiting.

Yeah suddenly tides are turning on multiple sites. Interesting. I have to think it was Purdue putting out fake signals because I doubt Trey was going to PU the last couple days and then switched to IU. I think he’s known where for a week.

Until I hear or see him say Purdue, I have to think its IU.

We just have to realize that this decision is about what is best for him.  We as fans think we know what is best for a kid but we are looking at it selfishly.  Just because a kid chooses another school it shouldn't be looked as a failure for the schools that he doesn't choose.  If he thinks Purdue is a better but for him then that is where he should go.

Absolutely. The kids and their fans weigh what’s best for them and that is entirely personal

FWIW, the top insider from Btown Banners is saying Kaufman to IU

Thanks.

I really think the Kaufman family have handled this perfectly, and with class. Its all speculation and reading tea leaves imo.

 

I hope like mad he picks IU. But regardless, its hard to not respect him and his circle.

If, God forbid, he chooses Purdue,  I may be stuck with another Robbie Hummel situation.

Publicly hate my rival. Privately respect and admire the individual.

My birthday is likewise in October...share birthdays with Cody Zeller and actually had inside information on his recruitment from a friend who worked at the school.

I have no inside information, but feel a need to stick with my classic misdirection guess and offset boiler's pick...
