    I have no idea what the quality of opponents is, but our freshman commits are looking awfully impressive.

    Concordia is usually pretty good at everything so Blackmon’s stats look particularly impressive but WOW for freshman to be putting up these numbers consistently is looking mighty promising!

  • slojoe

    OK, Alex you have to be making that one up about Westminisger Catawba Christian. Right?

  • millzy32

    Forget about reclassing McGary we need Blackmon Jr. and Lyles to reclass to next year. Wow they are impressive for only being 15 years old. Are either of them academic prodigy’s? My fear with at least Lyles is that the NBA and NCAA would change the rule and we wouldn’t even get him for a one and done and he’d go straight to the NBA. I pray that everything works out with these two and we see them both playing for IU. Add another target to their class and wow, I do think it’s better than 2012.

    Nope, just going by what the Charlotte Observer web site had.

    Isn’t that, like, public indecency or something?

  • Diesel

    Alex, that would be “eight” verbal commitments. At the frantic pace CTC signs these kids up, a little grace will be extended.

  • JerryCT

    Are Pritchfork and Amayo not on this list ???

  • http://www.insidethehall.com/ Alex Bozich

    Amayo is not. Pitchford will be added in the coming weeks if I can get stats.

  • GFDave

    Lots of big stat lines spread throughout. Perea’s game was off the charts.

  • WMR

    It would be hard to believe both Blackmon Jr. and Lyles wont be top 15 on rivals by the time they are seniors. We all know Lyles is probably NBA bound as soon as possible, but what is Blackmon averaging, 25 a game?

    Link to some video from a Peegs tweet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irtBYf1jfeM&feature=youtu.be

    It’s about 10 min long, but good so see a non-highlight video. He is very, very raw fundamentally, but man he does things you just can’t teach.

  • Hoosier Hardwood

    Glad he is not playing in the Big 10 where he will hurt us.

    I am a future Hoosier and a student at Concordia where James Blackmon (who also lives in my neighborhood) played on friday. He is FOR REAL. Also, Concordia is pretty good this year so he is putting up great numbers against solid competition.

  • Bleeding Crimson

    I will even enjoy when he is (Jurkin) on the Illinois home court and they have to clean up his mess of total destruction.
    There will be no end to this…but I love it.

  • Bleeding Crimson

    Welcome aboard guys. It’s great to see young Hoosiers on and inSIDE THE HALL.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YIKRELENCTUH2BHUZTMUGVGSS4 Steve

    Sure Zeller is great but what really impresses me are the freshman Blackmon scoring 24 and 27 points and Lyle 17pts 10 rebounds… Ok excuse my ignorance but they are playing at varsity level against many juniors and seniors– right?

  • Anonymous

    Correct. And not only against varsity competition, but both playing primarily (if not all) 3A and 4A schools.

  • Anonymous

    Those big hands will spank the opposition!

  • Anonymous

    Am I right in assuming that’s Jeff Grose’s son?

  • stonaroni

    Good for Nic……he isn’t coming to IU. I grew up in Indiana and played high school basketball. Just because a guy scores 30ppg doesnt mean he is Big 10 worthy. Warsaw is a solid program, but Wawasee, Rochester, etc are not as good as the Indianapolis area schools. Most of the good guards are in Indianapolis or Ft Wayne which means, they are not guarding Nic Moore.

    Also, I saw Nic Moore play AAU ball a couple years ago. I was impressed with his strength but he could not get to the rim and finish as well as Dee Davis and they are similar in height.

    I think Nic Moore is one of the top 10 players in the state, just not IU worthy.
