Alex Karaban-2022

Recommended Posts

Just offered today out of PA, he is a 6-7 wing forward that averaged 20 and 10 in his sophomore year. Fun fact, but he plays at the same school that Mike Roberts played for.

Several former Hoosiers played at this school, most recently Noah Vonleh.

Here are some highlights and a bit more info.  By all indications a guy whose recruitment is about to blow up.

He  can score from any place and can play with his back to the basket.  Some of his 3's were from way out.  You're right he'll be getting lots of offers.

Just out of curiosity, how many underclassmen has CAM offered in his 3 years? Meaning freshmen or sophomores...don´t think it´s many...this kid must be solid and potential through the roof!

Very good point. Coach doesn't offer early unless he really thinks it's important. Hope our in on him early means something.

I'm guessing we are breaking the rules.

And just a suggestion. Fix the guys delivering cash to the handlers first NCAA.....worry about a text or call later. @Indykev I didn't listen to this. Did they say us or what led you to say we are breaking the rules?

Does the dead period mean no contact with coaches, etc? An offer can be made through a coach.

Dead period does not mean that all contact is prohibited.  

Two weeks ago, the NCAA declared a mandatory recruiting dead period in response to the coronavirus shutdown of college sports, barring official and unofficial visits, contacts and evaluations while still permitting phone calls and text messages. But if you think that's stopped everyone, Vice President of Enforcement Jon Duncan has this update.

Cool. When someone says we are breaking the rules I was just hoping for a little more.....as others pointed out. Our staff could call a players coach and say you have an offer. That isn't direct contact. No big deal I guess but just saying we are breaking the rules I think needs a little more substance. That's all.

I’m not saying he’s the same player, but this recruitment of Karaban harkens me back to Matt Cross.  I remember one of the recruiting bloggers said that Archie was “obsessed” with Cross.  We will see if Archie gets on Karaban early and often.

They play in the same division too, I believe.

I’m all four getting a couple forwards to complement our crop of guards but I would really get excited to land another big. I like having the stock pile to rotate in and out last year and what we could have had this year but that advantage is about to go away.
