Trey Kaufman Commits to Purdue


Recommended Posts

No worries. If Trey chooses Purdue. He's Trey Lyles, Gary Harris....or better examples for Purdue folks. He's Caleb or AJ. No harm no foul but if he does choose Purdue....please spare me the he's a local kid we should cheer for him no matter what speak. 

As I said last week. He chooses us he'll be remembered forever. If he doesn't so be it. He's gone at 6:02 EST on 10/30/20 and won't be remembered again.

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. 

There is one central figure in this recruitment that is causing Nick to overreact here, and also causing the 247 guys to misreport that there is some kind of tension between Lander and Kaufman.  IU is

With how this recruitment has gone we might wake up in the morning and everything has changed.  If it doesn't the sun will rise and life will go on and IU will get other recruits.

I just worry about missing out on him and Mohammed, like what was mentioned on Assembly Call. That would hurt. Miller becomes a must and then I don't even know how to fill out the class.

Well our seniors can come back for another year.  We can bring in transfers who don't have to sit out.  We can bring in a grad transfer or go after some of the top recruits who don't sign in the fall.

If Painter is selling Kaufman on playing the 3, say we sell Kaufman on the 3 at IU.  Right now(maybe I am wrong) Kaufman is not playing top minutes right away over Hunter at the 3 or Race at the 4.  Maybe I am wrong here.  Does he get minutes why sure you bet but getting 20 plus mins I do not see.  Still hoping for IU, however, if we miss hopefully Archie has a backup plan.  To help win these tight battles winning does help.  Win games this year, make the tourney and don't be a 1st rd exit.

 

We will be light on the front court next year if we only enter 2021-2022 with Hunter at 6'7" (can play the 4 as a small stretch guy), Race(4 or 5) and Duncomb(5).  Mason Miller is 6'9" so he could play some at the 3 or 4(stretch).  If we miss out on TK and Mason we will be very light unless we nab a transfer that would be eligible right away.

Trey isn't a 3. He's a 4. You arent remembered at Purdue, I'm sorry you just aren't. 

This was a weird recruitment. SC has maybe the best 3A team we've seen... like ever... and now outside of SC fans, no is really going to care. 

Painter is a darn good coach. Again weird recruitment and truthfully glad this is over.

If you don’t remember we lost him every time you watch Purdue play over the next 4 years I think you will be lying to yourself. I think he is going to be a very good player for them. Much more so then Furst. I know for certain he will be remembered at least 2-3 times a year we face them. Also likely when watching them playing in the tournament...especially if Archie fails to deliver us to the NCAA in those years. Guess he and Archie are even now...we got Rob they got Trey.

Let me guess "He'll always be part of the IU family"......Spare me....Another bullet dodged.....

This stings for @hoosierfan34, @5fouls , and myself we are Sellerburg people, know the family well, and know that Trey would be a phenomenal asset.  I won't watch him more than 3-4 times a season but will watch his stat lines and wish him well.  Really hope he continues to traject the way he has the last 2 years because if so he may wind up one and done.  Not likely with his focus on education.

I do. I always think what if when I see local kid playing on the other team having a special career. If we had just landed this kid just think how good we could have been. Some obviously more than others who I would say got away that shouldn’t have. Like I said Furst I kinda expected. Trey is a shock to the system for me to watch a southern Indiana kid go to Purdue...especially given how hard we pushed for the kid and that we had a meaningful position for him.

Understandable. Anyone personally associated with the kid SHOULD feel this way. The rest of us can keep on "hatin'" and still be able to sleep at night. The guy has ZERO ties to Indiana basketball otherwise so why would the rest of us support him? Hell, Sean May got death threats and his dad was arguably one of the most love Hoosiers ever....No shame is seeing this as a stupid move.

I feel for you guys! Sucks, would have been awesome to root for him.

Tell me about.  Many of us around his uncle Matt were crushed at the poor game that he played in front of Bob Knight, knowing it was his dream and that was likely the one chance and it was over.  Can't imagine if Matt wound up at IU and was know like a Matt Nover that Trey wouldn't have committed to IU in 3rd grade.

Why is it a stupid move? I wish he came to IU selfishly because I want the best team we could have but honestly why is it stupid to go play at Purdue over IU. He had a better relationship with Painter and he saw his vision for how he will be used over there. Archie is yet to really put together a vision for Indiana basketball. Maybe this year he will. The product on the floor has been pretty spotty. I see improvement at times but what is important is B1G success not simply winning a couple more non-conference games a year. I can understand the decision...just don’t like it.

Comparing Painter to Crean might be one of the strangest things I’ve seen in this thread. Don’t think it’s accurate to say Painter has been up and down like a roller coaster. Aside from a few seasons, he’s been pretty consistent. 

Consistently average.

I don't really mean that as a knock on your team, if you are happy with Painter, great.  I am saying that I hear how "good" a coach Painter is from some of the same people who were pretty critical of Crean, and for my money, not much daylight exists between them.

Painter to me is meh.  He is a guy who can thrive at schools where people are content as long as you don't totally suck at what you do.  And IU fans need to start realizing that for some of these kids, your insanity is being used to raise their profile.  All of these special interviews or news conferences to pick a hat are silly and in this state, it seems like they are rarely done for kids where Indiana is not involved.  The fanbase needs to stop living and dying with every "next big recruit" that comes along.  I am not saying that Kauffman led Indiana fans on or anything, I am saying that if it was down to Purdue and Virginia, nobody around here would give enough of a frick for a "special" announcement.  And the kids know it...and it is because of crazy grown men like us that wait with baited breath on the announcement of a kid to play a game that the complete bonkers this has been goes on.

No matter where he goes, IU fans need to tone this stuff down a bit IMO.
