Get out your calenders and save the date. Six incoming IU players (Eric Gordon, Jamarcus Ellis, Eli Holman, Jordan Crawford, Brandon McGee and DeAndre Thomas) will be coming to a gym near you for the annual IU recruit barnstorming tour.
Tentative dates, but no times or locations, have been announced:
- August 2: New Albany
- August 3: Batesville
- August 7: North Daviess
- August 9: Muncie
There will also be a stop in Indianapolis. We’ll have more details as soon as they become available.
Among the things we’ll be interested in seeing:
- Is Jordan Crawford ready to step in and contribute immediately?
- Is Jamarcus Ellis the slasher and playmaker that IU desperately needs?
- Has DeAndre Thomas trimmed down enough to be a factor? What do we have in Brandon McGee and Eli Holman?
- Is Eric Gordon really THAT good? Wait, we already know the answer.

July 10th update: According to a report on Peegs, there will be a game August 4th in Fort Wayne. Additionally, the game in New Albany will be held at New Albany High School. Normally that game is held at IU Southeast.
