Brandon Mobley and Indiana?

Update, 10:55 am: I had some email correspondence with Donald Heath, who penned the article in The Savannah Morning News. According to Heath, the program at the Georgia All-Star game claimed that Mobley signed with Indiana. Heath asked Mobley about that and Mobley told him he was “probably going to sign with Indiana soon.” I’m not exactly sure where Mobley’s information is coming from, but again, Indiana is not recruiting him according to his AAU coach and our sources.

Update, 6:45 pm: I spoke with Brandon Mobley a few moments ago and he told me that he’s planning to make a decision on April 14. According to Mobley, the schools still on his list include IU, Cincinnati and South Carolina. He did not confirm the report from The Savannah Morning News which stated he will likely sign with Indiana. I also asked him about the departure of assistant coach Roshown McLeod and Mobley said, “It really doesn’t have an effect on my decision.”

On the flip side, to our knowledge, Indiana has not been actively recruiting Mobley since last fall. And according to Mobley’s AAU coach, Felix Taylor, this is exactly the case.

Thanks to “IUDan,” who tipped us off to the following snippet in a story about the Georgia North-South All-Star game, published today by The Savannah Morning News:

Where does the time go? Soon the kids will be flying the coop. Four have already signed NCAA Division I basketball letters on intent. Mobley, on Sunday, said he will most likely sign with Indiana soon.

Mobley, for those of you that had forgotten him, is Brandon Mobley, a 6-9 forward from Savannah. (Rivals profile here.) Given the full court press currently being applied to Moses Abraham, this development seems highly unlikely, but hey, stranger things have happened, right?

    If Mobley is able to contribute on “D” and battle down low for position on “O” put backs and rebounding as a true Frosh then that would be a scholly well deserved. Having MA and VO alomg with WS is getting me fired up. IMO VO is highly underrated and will make an immediate impact as a starter or 6th off the bench. VO=Beast

  • Yeah, I'd take an “invited walkon” offer from Indiana over SCarolina any day.

    And probably Cincy, too.
