Kyrie Irving trims list to 10, will visit IU

St. Patrick’s (NJ) guard Kyrie Irving still has a sizeable list of schools to sort through — ten to be exact — but the good news for the IU coaching staff is that the Hoosiers appear to be in excellent shape.

Irving, who sat out the first part of this past high school season due to transfer rules, is viewed as one of the top priorities in the 2010 class and told Adam Zagoria of the Zagsblog that IU will definitely get a visit this summer:

Irving listed the following schools in a text message Tuesday morning: Georgia Tech, Duke, Indiana, Seton Hall, Texas A&M, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Florida, Marquette and Kentucky.

Noticeably absent were Rutgers, Villanova and UConn.

Irving will also take a couple of visits this summer.

“I’m taking one to Texas A&M and one to Indiana,” Irving said. “I don’t know the dates.”

One school to keep an eye on with Irving is Kentucky. Rod Strickland, who was recently named the Director of Basketball Operations in Lexington, is a close family friend.

    BGleas I agree with your perspective and I too think it very likely that Crean adds 4 kids to the 2010 class. I would like to see one of the four be a bigger player, someone at least 6' 9″ that can block shots and shoot it from at least 12 feet. That said, I'm very happy with the recruits Crean is bringing in, they seem like good kids that can play.

    I know that Josh Smith commited to IU, that's why I said “choose to come to IU”.
