The latest on the Kyrie Irving recruiting front is not favorable for Indiana. According to a report by Adam Zagoria, Irving’s visit on October 2 and 3 has been postponed and most likely, canceled.

Everything we’re hearing on the Irving front indicates that he will not take an official visit to Bloomington and the Hoosiers have been all but eliminated from his list of schools.

According to Zagoria, Georgia Tech is now scheduled to get an official visit and Indiana is still a possibility for his fifth visit along with Seton Hall and Connecticut.

Update: Kyrie Irving’s uncle, Sye Dean, confirmed that his nephew is no longer considering Indiana to Adam Zagoria. Here are the comments from Dean, courtesy of Zagoria:

“Indiana is out. We respect the program. We respect Tom Crean. We feel blessed that a University of that caliber would recruit Kyrie, but sometimes in regards to this recruiting process you have to eliminate certain programs. That’s part of the process.”

“It’s always a process of elimination and I think Tom Crean and their program did a wonderful job. We just felt that Indiana wasn’t the place where he could develop and that’s no disrespect to Tom Crean. Although Indiana is a great program and has great coaches, we just felt it was conducive for us to go in another direction.”

“Although Kyrie will not be taking an official visit to Indiana University, as a family we have the utmost respect for the Indiana University program, its coaches and players. Unfortunately, during this arduous and lengthy recruiting process, certain perspectives and perceptions changed in what would be best for Kyrie and his future.”

    I sat next to a Duke fan when we beat them in Lexington at the 2002 Regional.. There is a sense of entiltlement that turns my stomach…This Dukie sitting behind me at that game(screaming in my ear that Boozer would have his way with us “all day long” ) just assumed IU was a buried team from the initial tip-off..He must have said “all day long” 300 times in the first half..Entitlement. Coach K nearly faints(I actually believe one instance he actually did..) at every questionable foul call…Entitlement. I really didn't mean to sound so harsh by …I do think he lacks a good amount of maturity…Anyone that nearly proclaims to be the Second Coming on his YouTube highlights maybe needs a little guidance and maybe a good butt whoopin', too…Maybe a whoopin' from a guy that could exploit his major weakness- his lack of strength in going to the rack…Saying he lacks character was a cheap shot…Cheap because I hold a bad taste in my mouth from the little experience I've had around Duke fans…Very shallow thinking on my part….Cheap because I can't stand the color blue because it's shared by Kentucky…Cheap because I think the kid is making a decision for all the safe and right reasons instead of a challenging wrong one .Please forgive me Kylie for my cheap shot…….I'm sure. like your YouTube clip says, it is now time for the rest of the world to know who you are….I'm sure you have good character….plenty good enough for Duke.
