Yogi Ferrell makes the call for Indiana

Indiana’s unprecedented recruiting run continued Wednesday night when 2012 Park Tudor point guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell became the ninth Hoosier commitment since August 9.

Ferrell, the No. 17 player in the 2012 class according to Rivals.com, announced his decision to attend Indiana over Butler, Florida, Virginia and Wake Forest prior to Park Tudor’s season-opener against University.

“Right now in front of my family the Park Tudor family who have all been my biggest supporters, I want to verbally commit to play my college basketball for coach Tom Crean at Indiana,” Ferrell said to a capacity crowd.

The 5-10 point guard becomes the fourth recruit in IU’s 2012 class that also includes Broad Ripple’s Ron Patterson, United Faith Christian Academy’s Peter Jurkin and La Porte La Lumiere’s Hanner Perea.

He’s the third five-star recruit to commit to Crean since October 31, joining the aforementioned Perea and 2011 Washington big man Cody Zeller, who committed and signed a Letter of Intent on November 11.

Inside the Hall will have more coverage of this developing story in the coming hours.

    When you live 1500 miles away, I’m not going to buy a plane ticket, hotel room and all that goes with it to see them get blown out …call that fair weather if you want, I don’t really care

    I think according to Alex and others you can have 13 so wouldn’t that mean they’d only need one transfer to get Harris? I hate to say it because I like him but it may be Capo. It could be Roth but I wish it didn’t have to be anyone. I understand how it works though.

    It’s so great that IU is getting these great players, it’s going to be so nice to be back at the top and be able to rub it in the face of all of the people who took so much joy in the bad times we had. Also, I’m glad that the recruiting news will probably be slowing down. My wife is upset that I know the names of all of IU’s recruits but I can’t remember her relatives names.

    When you start asking current scholarship players to drop theirs, what does that say to potential recruits, “we want you until something better comes along”? We are in great shape for the future now. I’m thrilled with what we have in and coming in.

    Each one of these kids could be contributors in his own way. Each brings something different to the table.

    My wife is mad that I said this morning that I’d rather have bamboo shoots driven up my *ss or let people line up to kick me in the nuts than go to her family’s house!

    Hollywood is hyping their new “Yogi” movie, but the real news is in Indiana where point guard “Yogi” from Indiana will be balling at IU and creating a sequel to the “Hoosiers” movie on the college level!!!

    I am going to love hearing the chants of “Yo-gi” as he makes sharp & impressive passes & plays!!!
