Nothing wrong with him commiting but that was not what I was answering.  The response was it was good for the big ten even if he does not come.  If he doesn't come then does that really help the big ten.

We have a year and a half to find out...

As I said, if he doesn't come, it hurts neither MSU or the conference...

And positive publicity like this always helps...

Latest 247 rankings for the players that I know IU has had some level of contact with. Also interesting to note that all 3 top in-state PGs are not ranked right now -- Walker, Comer, Smith. Still

Is he stuck in a Time Warp or something?

So having Josh Smith commit to IU help in anyway

In a weird way yes. Same for Michigan St with this kid, same for Archie with Romeo, and same for Davis with Smith. He can take that to other recruits who might not be ranked as high but still very, very good to great talents  and say this. If Josh Smith or Romeo or this Sparty kid thought our school was good enough....how can't you?

Used correctly by staffs just getting a commit by a top 10 recruit( even if they never step one foot on the campus) is a win.

I agree with most of that the only downside is when you lose a top 50ish guy because you took the top 10 guy that never stepped foot on campus. In principle I agree with your assessment

That would be the Bruce Weber model. Archie doesn't strike me as someone who will not have plan B, C, and D in place with similar ranked recruits.

I agree but what I am saying is that if you offer a top 10 PG and lose out on a top 50 PG because he wants to go to the school that says he is the man day 1 etc...

That is one benefit of Archie's decision to not use the full allotment of scholarships...we can always have one available should a Top 10 prospect want to sign, while using the rest to build a stable roster of 3-4 year players.

Thanks, as always.  It will be interesting to see which guys we get traction with.

I understand if you don't want to give out this information but where do you think the point guards that are being recruiting in this class rank in terms of priority to the staff? (Smith, Walker, Comer, Thornton, Holloman)

I suspect it is Thornton, Holloman, Walker, Smith and Comer in that order.  With still two years of high school left, obviously much can change.

I am hoping to get two of them and hope it is Thornton and Smith.

Nope just looking on sites and saying that we are warm in terms of recruitment. I will acquiesce to someone with alot more knowledge though on this. Figured I would drege up this thread since we have moved on from 21 although I think there might be a couple more guys that would be possible gets in that class.

I wouldn't go by that being warm means anything

Supposedly we are in the running for Jalen Washington! That would be a huge get from in state 22 class even though he is in the region. 

I think Jalen Washington has a Stanford offer.  That's a clear indication he has his academics in order.  And, I think it gives IU a chance against some of the usual suspects that go after elite talent.  Let's just hope he's not interested in Engineering.

Would like to see IU get in early on some transfer and juco options in the 6'9+ range.

As it stands today, some think TJD will return next season and many believe it's likely Brunk will return. That would be great but if it does not pan out you are looking at Race and Duncomb (Fr) with Geronimo as the only other "big" on the team. That won't work.

Archie can't afford to miss out on any more bigs. He really needs to add size for 2021/2022, because his job may depend on it. But he absolutely has to get some size lined up for 2022/2023 because you're not going to have TJD at that point.

So here is a recruit we could look at for 2021 to kind of work out in the mold of Purdues bigs...Harold Yu. He is 7'3" and looks raw but looks like he has some potential. I know that is for 2021 just thought I would add here. That would fill out our size issue. Haha.

I know Purdue really likes the position they’re in right now. MSU will always be tough but I think he’s a legit possibility. He wears #13 and is from Gary (granted so did Branden Dawson but Dawson and Washington are very different players/people). Big Dog still means a lot up there IMO.

I guess maybe I don't know the history but Big Dog sent his own kid to Michigan. How big is wearing #13 and being from Gary actually worth? I know Painter said he ran out of scholarships...just curious I guess.
