Loved that announcement. Kids seems like he knows what it means to wear Indiana across your chest 

Caught up with Gunn and his father this morning.  Here is that Q&A. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-qa-with-new-class-of-2022-indiana-commit-c-j-gunn/

The couple of games I saw him on TV he didn't shoot well.  I guess when I think of a guy being a big ten recruit I expected a guy to be more dominate.  He showed flashes of being really good and he still has over a year until he will be going to college.

CJ reminds me exactly what we did with Armaan. For some reason the ranking services overlooked kid early on but as he adds weight to his frame will be similar. Perfect spot for him to come in, learn from Armaan/Trey/Leal,etc....and be ready to contribute his 1st season but pounce as a starter his 2nd. Exactly the type of kid we want.

Does IU have a good shot at both?

I think from reading the TDH articles and the chatter around here, we're the favorite for Gunn...And an announcement this early has to bode well for us, I'd think...

Washington? I don't know...We don't get Gary kids too often...But, we're in the race...

I think he'll be a good start to the 22 class...

But Jalen Washington is the one we need...

Will be really interesting to see what happens with Washington. If I had to guess as of right now, I’d think it comes down to MSU and Purdue.

MIC is beyond legit and yes I’m biased being a former MIC athlete haha. 

I cannot imagine there being a better conference if you combine football and basketball, in the country. Absurd.

It's hard to imagine but I'd venture to say there probably is.  

Basketball and football top to bottom is fantastic.  I'd imagine some of the Florida leagues are incredible.  Texas probably has a few.  I'm guessing there are others.  Just checking out the high school national top 25 maybe houston.  They might have 3 conferences as good as the mic in football.

Older article from ITH...

But there's a couple of quotes/facts that stand out...

“I believe I’m a great two-way player,” Gunn said. “I believe I’m unpredictable and I can score on all three levels. Mostly, I’m big on that two-way player, and I take defense as a priority…The game revolves around energy, and I believe defense…you just have that energy on the court, you can feed off of that and that turns into offense.”

His size and stature (Gunn stands 6-foot-5, weighs 175 lbs. and has a 6-foot-9 wingspan) allows him to be equally comfortable bringing the ball up the court and playing on the wing, skills he’s helped refine this summer by playing AAU games in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with the Indy Heat Gym Rats."

I really don't think so. Both sports combined... top to bottom. All public schools, especially.

Use to be the old South Central Conference ruled at least in basketball...In football, Bloomington High School (when there was only Bloomington and University high schools in Bloomington) had a 60 game winning streak from 1967 into 1973...

Easily. If it was football only, that’d be a different story but combined you’re absolutely right. Shit throw in the other sports too while you’re at it. Insane talent.

My head football coach in HS and the guy I work under now (Reed May) was on those teams. All of that was before these MIC schools became mega HS's 2500+ 

LN starts 6'7, 6'5, 6'5... brings 6'9 off the bench. 2 of their top 8 are D1 football players, 3 of their top 8 are D1 basketball palyers, and the 6'9 kid isn't either of those lol crazy.

The best basketball conference in the old days was the one with these schools.

New Castle

Marion

Muncie Central

Richmond
