    I am really going to love this Carlino kid he seems terrific…but i am wondering if Crean is planing on doing anything in that class to back up Carlino…anyway Crean can only use one scholarship in that class unless he is not remotely interested in the 2010 class (which is some what, lacking depth) he could save those two scholarships to use in the class of 11'….

    Kind of like a breath of fresh air reading about these kids.

    Yea Unknown, he can and should use those 2 scholarships that he has available for 2010/11 for 2011. There's just a boatload of talent in the class. I just want a dominating big man, just to know that I have seen one play for Indiana 😀

  • Kelin Blab

    wooooow a dominating big man….wouldnt that be nice…..

  • Kelin Blab

    I think Crean should follow wake forrest coach and gonzaga coach around where ever they recruit, they seem to have cornered the market on big men….

    by the way…..2nd recruiting post about our recruits and still nada on Bawa…Hell I even check you tube etc and couldn't find anything on him either……hopefully he's not hanging with Bud Mackey……

    Kelvin Sampson back in Indiana in 16 days. Come to Conseco and enjoy the fun.

    Only one I could find, this is highschool

  • Taskmaster75

    Thanks for the video man, All i could tell from it was that he can dunk though. Who was their PG, he wasn't too shabby.

    Watford and Creek seem like studs. Hopefully they are the type of create-your-own-shot, slashing, above-the-rim, athletic players this team needs. I am really excited about Hulls, he seems like a smart, team oriented player, and hopefully will help cut down on the turnovers. Capo seems to bring a toughness, and, at least in practice, will make him and Pritchard better. Elston, I have never seen play, so I am not real sure of his game; and on the 2A level, it is hard to tell from his stats, but he is putting up numbers, so at the very least, he is not afraid to shoot. Bawa is the eternaI mystery isn't he?

    I agree with some past posts that next year will not be the year for this team to blossom, but the following when the current freshman are juniors (hopefully everyone sticks around)……Look out Big 10.

    I too am very excited about next years class, but it seems that many of us are forgetting about one major piece of that class, Jeremiah Rivers. He adds toughness and experience to this extremely talented class, having played two seasons in the Big East. I think he is a great compliment to the 6 that Crean is bringing in next year.

    Good research

    Elston can play he is not necessarily a power forward but more of a tweener that can post up but is seen wondering around the perimeter…obiviously Bawa can dunk and when you are 7 foot that isnt that hard, but a positive is that he really can run the floor and has good hands, also he takes it up strong everytime, cause we dont want a 7 foot pansy, like a former IU player (Ben Allen).I just heard that Crean is making it a focus to recruit the kid from Muncie (Davis), i really like how he plays the game and will be a future Willie Warren type PG

    I can see why your logo is chris farley – not an expert at all. I love IU, but have tempered my emotions after the last 6 year meltdown. IU will maybe compete for the Big 10 title in 4 years. Take some acid and enjoy the trip.

    Apparently you have not been tracking the recruits going to other schools.

    UNC sucks and oh so over-rated. I predict UConn to cut down the nest this year.
