    Kelin never say this is to late, People de comment all the time. Just ask Louisville fans. My guess is he grow up in Florida, and wanted to stay in state. I look for him to come to see big brother play in person and on TV. Nowadays, its not over till he signs

    I am not sure what this means but:

    1) Carelino not mentioned in the Rivals 100
    2) Nnana Egwu and Deng Leek ( both over 6'9″ ) are listing IU in Rivals but they are not in Scout.
    3) Etherington not in Rivals 100
    4) Sidiki Johnson listed IU and IS in both services.

    I suppose this shows the unreliability of these services after maybe the top 25. I am not banking on recruiting as much anyway but rather more hopeful of TC's ability to coach and develop

    Yesterday on Tom Crean's Twitter. Coach says: “Great day at camp and a crucial visitor on campus.” Does anyone know who the visitor was?

    You might recall that Doc Rivers was not especially pleased with his son's decommitment from Georgetown to IU considering it happened when our beloved program was really on the ropes. I cannot provide a link to share, but I do recall reading that at one point. It sounds like he has warmed up to Jeremiah's commitment to IU since he has gotten involved and addressed the team in the recent past. However, I don't think there was/is a rock-solid connection between IU and the Rivers family that would have compelled Austin to give us a hard look.

    If he was alluding to Zeller, that seems awfully close to stepping over the line on commenting about a recruit. Watch your step, Coach.
