Washington Times report: Jeremiah Rivers to Indiana

rivers.jpgA report this morning in The Washington Times says that former Georgetown guard Jeremiah Rivers, son of Boston Celtics coach and Marquette alum Doc Rivers, plans to enroll at Indiana. Rivers visited the Indiana campus on Friday, according to the Hoosier Scoop. Here’s what the Times is reporting:

Georgetown guard Jeremiah Rivers, who announced his intention to transfer this past week, plans to enroll at Indiana, according to a source close to the program. A 6-foot-4 guard who served as the Hoyas’ defensive stopper during his two seasons with the Hoyas, Rivers joins another former Big East performer in Bloomington, Ind., where he will attempt to help former Marquette coach Tom Crean rebuild the Hoosiers.

According to a story published in yesterday’s Boston Globe, Celtics coach Doc Rivers was not pleased with his son’s decision to leave Georgetown. But the young guard felt like a shift to Crean’s perimeter-oriented system would help him improve on last season’s pedestrian production: 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 18.4 minutes.

Rivers was familiar with Crean due to his father’s ties to Marquette as well as playing against Crean in the Big East. He won’t be available until the 2009-2010 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but this is a nice pickup (if the report is indeed accurate, which it appears it may be premature) because this kid is an excellent defender and ball handler.

    I wouldn't mind sutton. 3 star recruits don't bother me that much because that is just an opinion. In the right system, program, and with the right coach…they can excel as much as any player.

    really we aren't shaping up that bad. It seems like we have to many gaurds, but really with Nick Williams being big and 6-4 or 6-5 he could play at small forward. Then you have Derek Eltson at 6-8 whow can play small forward and power forward. Looking forward to 2010….when we will really be rolling….and dumes scholly becomes available…this is what were looking at.

    Point Gaurds- crawford, jones, rivers

    Shooting Gaurds – creek, williams, roth

    Small forwards – Eltson, McGee, (williams)

    Power Forwards – VT or Prosser, Cabo, (Eltson)

    Centers – Sutton*, Pritchard

    If we get these guys, and river pays his own way……..which could happen……that leaves us 2 schollys for 2010 or sooner…..considering apr and what not, I say we get us a bad ass center….maybe travis carrol……..and another power forward….and we will be set

    “In two seasons at Georgetown, Rivers never scored in double figures, but he had earned the reputation of being a “defensive stopper.”

    Sounds like a role player at very best. With the talent that we have left, I think that we need talent more than a mediocre role player that is a kid of a friend.

    I know Jeremiah a little bit and his dad pretty well. Jeremiah is a good kid that will definitely be a team player and someone that IU fans will love to root for, plus with his dad you know he'll be a smart player, and someone that will never cause problems. He also has talent and will fit a need.

    With that said, even before the Rivers news I was already pretty worried about our size and scholarship situation. We really need a imediate impact big man at some point.
