    Josh Selby needs to be a Hoosier! Come on Josh!

    Also, nice games by several Hoosier-to-Be's. Vic and Carlino especially looking like great pickups. We will be stacked at the 1,2, and 3. By that time, TP, DE, and Bawa will be contributing at the 5 and Watford will be a dominating 4. We are definitely looking good for the future.

    Beat the Buckeyes this week!

    whats the deal with teague? he eats a lot of waffles.

  • MPmike

    It would be a lock in getting Shelby, if Creen had the same way or philosphy of getting recruits. I prefer Crean's way instead. Go Hoosiers!!!!!

  • benchwarmer32

    My uncle was at the game against Michigan and stayed for an hour to talk to Coach Crean. Before Crean came out, several recruits came out of the locker room and talked to my uncle for awhile. One said he was from Virginia. I can't figure out who we're recruiting from Virginia. Any ideas? My uncle said he looked about 6'2-6'3.

    benchwarmer32: the player you are referring to from Virgina is Ricardo Ratliffe, who is 6'7″ 215lbs power forward who was a 4-star prospect that had to go the JC route due to grades. He would be a great get for CTC, he is scoring 26ppg and the plus side is that he could fill a void of bigs that are lacking for the next few years. By the way I'm a long time visitor of this site and want to thank you guys for it, look for me to commit on here more often.

    Btown, good to have you and look foward to your future comments. If this is the player that was at the game and Crean is recruiting, it would be a great commit for IU. I looked this kid up earlier and he looks like an absolute beast. ESPN rates him as a very good athlete and a “scoring machine”. A lot of schools have been interested, I believe Michigan State has offered recently. This could be the athletic frontline guy we need.

  • Welcome. Good to have you.

    I think you should support my decision to start the rumor of Austin Rivers considering IU and decommitting from Florida by posting his stats on ITH. Hey it worked for EJ along with a few extra phone calls…..

  • illinoishoosier

    As much as i dislike Illinois (they dislike IU way more because of EJ), it was nice to see Bruce Pearl have a little bad karma as he was the one that blew the whistle on Illinois and Deon Thomas many a year ago. Maybe that will help take the chip off their shoulder when they come to Bloomington, IN this Saturday.

  • bluegrassHoosier

    Thanks for the updates. Although they often lead to excitement that can sometimes be squashed when IU doesn't land a particular recruit.

    I did find a fairly recent Carlino video on youtube. I don't know many of you have seen it, but he really appears to be a total package. More than I was expecting. I hope it's ok to post the link…
