We’ve received lots of questions about the upcoming IU recruit barnstorming tour — and here’s what we know, by way of the event directors. The 2007-08 incoming Indiana University recruiting class — including Indiana Mr. Basketball Eric Gordon, Jordan Crawford, Jamarcus Ellis, Eli Holman, Brandon McGee and DeAndre Thomas — will have five scrimmages across the state. Currently, games are scheduled for New Albany (August 2), Batesville (August 3), North Daviess (August 7) and Muncie Central (August 9), with an additional contest in Indianapolis to be announced at a later date. Often, area high school and college players are invited to participate with and against the IU recruits.
I’ve also received quite a few e-mails asking for times and ticket information. When that information is available, I’ll be sure to pass it along.
By the way, Inside the Hall will be at the New Albany game and we hope to bring you live blog updates from the event. The details are not yet finalized, but it should be a good ol’ time. Like many of you, we can’t wait to get a look at the incoming class. I just hope the NCAA doesn’t come and kick us out.
