Tentative IU recruit barnstorming tour dates

Eric GordonGet 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.

(Via The Hoosier Scoop.)

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.

    If Gordon appears and plays, expect the gyms to be packed.

    Anybody have word if tickets will be available in advance?

    No word on tickets. I have a feeling additional games could be added as this is just a tentative schedule at this point.

  • Every time I hear barnstorming, I think of the Harlem Globetrotters and the old pre-NBA teams coached by, like, Pete Maravich’s dad.

    And then I see Eric Gordon, and I smile.

    i see the third site is North Daviess.

    probably just a coincidence that it’s located in the same county where Tyler Zeller plays.

    he probably won’t come out to watch.

    Glad to hear the game in New Albany is at the high school rather than IU Southeast. They’ll be able to accommodate a much larger crowd.
