    Nice to see two Warsaw boys representing the 2011 class in Marshall Plumlee and Nic Moore. Moore is definitely flying under the radar. Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't suit up in the hideous black and gold in a few years. Painter started quite a bit of interest this last season.

    I really like Jeremiah Davis out of that class, as I mentioned in a previous post. Anyone else had the chance to see him play?

  • Kelin Blab

    Read in Indy star Kendall Griffin and Austin Burgett visited from Avon H.S. Kendall Griffin is a player, lot of people don't know about him…..kid can ball…

  • I've watched Davis a couple of times. Really like him. Will see him again this weekend.

  • This could (hopefully) be a good time for Crean and IU to make a move on Ferguson…for some reason, I feel like the Ferg talk with IU has died down a bit lately….maybe this weekend that will change?!?

    What are the odds on us recruiting Ray McCallum Jr.:)

  • Kelin Blab

    I sit and look at who IU is in the running for with some of Indiana's best and have to say we are in the running to land some of these guys. My predictions….

    Pool A
    Fergunson – Goes to UK
    Deshaun Thomas – Flirts with IU next year, not sold on him going to OSU
    Teague – Going to IU, can't resist Crean, close to home

    Pool B
    Jerimiah Davis – We get teague, J. Davis goes elsewhere
    Cody Zeller – Goes to Purdue, Indiana style of play may not fit..the zeller curse continues
    D.Davis – OK…I really thought this out…..In Bloomingtons backyard, Carlino, Hulls put on full court press…..see's teague may be one and done…D.Davis commits to IU

    Pool C
    Kendall Griffin – We get one of the two. If I had to roll the dice….couldn't…I have no idea on either of these……Griffin is a more complete player
    Spencer Turner…but turner is going to work himself into the same mold. Love South kids….

    Won't make any predictions on the 2012 kids yet……

  • Coach Crean and staff were spotted at the IU baseball game today with 2 recruits.

  • I don't get the feeling that IU is a serious player for Ferguson.

    Hey Kelin Like your predictions. But no mention of Kyrie Irving. Did you write him off? Plus not sure UK will have the scollies for Fergunson,

    I read something interesting on the Indy star blog….Crean is NOT allowed to watch ANY of the games but can do unofficial visits with guys. That has to be tough, got recruits running all over the place and can't watch them play.

  • Kelin Blab

    I think it is a closed recruiting period…..I stand corrected….

  • Kelin Blab

    Ron….just tried to stick with the Indiana kids. Have a better feel for them…although….I would give us a strong strong chance on landing kyrie irving based this kids comments about Crean, Indiana, and their contact with him while he was ineligible….
