  • 09/24/2007 7:44 am in

Devin EbanksRise Magazine recently announced their list of the top 50 players in the class of 2008. And luckily for Hoosier fans, there’s some IU flavor prominently displayed.

Devin Ebanks checks in as the No. 15 player in the class and Bud Mackey is the No. 41 player.

Washington (IN) big man Tyler Zeller, who visited IU this past weekend, is slotted in at No. 18. Kevin Jones, who will reportedly visit IU on October 12 for Hoosier Hysteria, comes in at No. 37.

Rise will release full biographies for the top 50 players in a publication called Hardwood that will be released in late October.

Also of note, here are the top five players on the list: Samardo Samuels (Louisville), Greg Monroe (undecided), Tyreke Evans (undecided), Jrue Holiday (UCLA) and Brandon Jennings (Arizona).

    Hey does anyone know how the Zeller visit worked out? I was hoping to hear something from the IDS or something. Just wondering. Go IU.

    I know the IU Rivals site has some information from Tyler himself, but there’s nothing earth shattering in the article. He’s pretty much staying even keel on the whole thing and I don’t really expect much else from him. I look for the Indy Star to possibly have a piece on Zeller tomorrow as they’re devoting a lot of coverage to his recruitment.

    I’m a grad student at UNC, but went to IU as an undergrad. He stayed at the hotel I work in and from his brief gatherings in our lobby he never looked overzealous or disapointed. He would have been an awesome poker player, because I couldn’t read the guy at all. In fact, my friend who is a UNC undergrad thought they didn’t make a good impression. My gut feeling is that each of the four programs he’s visiting is getting the same type of vibe.
    I wanted to say go Hooshiers but felt that Coach Sampson can do the work for for me.

    Carolina campus is pretty nice.

    Roy Williams is a formidable recruiter.

    Heels have gotten quite a few folks out of Indiana — Sean May, Holmes from Bloomington South, Rick Fox, Dave Colescott and others.

    Yeah I wish we could steal some of their players, but ( I’m really not trying to be rude here) North Carolina does not mass produce great players like they do in Indiana. It just irks me how they feel UNC is superior to everyone else when they use Indiana kids to win their past two national championships (May and Montross). I guess just tough living in ACC country, and you hear the same story over and over again.
