  • Is IU no longer recruiting Mitch McGary or was he mistakenly left off this week? I just checked Rivals and it doesn’t show he has committed anywhere

  • Wasn’t able to get any information this week, so I didn’t include him.

  • Kelin Blab

    Patterson v DSR round one in the sectionals. You will see how good Buss and Ripple really are….or are not. Too bad we have class basketball…just thought I would throw that annual jab in…

  • Casey B.

    I know he just returned from an injury, but even prior, Jurkin’s point totals are hardly impressive on paper. While I realize he’s offensively raw, he’s still a 7-foot high school center. Since my knowledge of his actual play is limited to the four minutes of collective footage I’ve seen, I’m not making a claim as much as I’m asking: what gives? Why isn’t Jurkin at least putting up admirable high school numbers?

    Is he on a stacked team where he’s simply not the go-to guy? Offensive system doesn’t play to his strengths? Is he simply just not “there” yet? Help me out. Given the last few years, I’m on high alert when it comes to IU and gargantuan international players with low production.

  • John Galt

    You can’t judge PJ’s impact by numbers alone. He will bring that much needed “Tijan-factor” that has been sorely missing.

  • Casey B.

    From what I understand, Hanner’s team simply isn’t very well run, and the systems put in place don’t allow him to capitalize on his strengths.

  • Casey B.

    Now I can rest easy.

    Wake me up in nine months…

    Jurkin is on a team that has four kids who are 6’9″ or taller (two of them are 7 footers, and one is a 6’11” kid), so he isn’t exactly heavily relied upon.

    While I agree that an IU commit should probably be getting more impressive stats, realize that he IS pretty raw offensively and wasn’t recruited to be a scorer… IMO, Crean’s system could benefit from a long, lanky true “5” who can run the floor, grab rebounds, and alter shots. I think we’re all hoping that Jurkin is that piece to the puzzle.

    Quite honestly, he’d probably benefit from a redshirt or a year in prep school (and that shouldn’t be too unrealistic considering all of the talent that will be in by 2012).

    Im worried that we wont get a post player for next year ? Is there any info on a player for 2011 ? Hammons ? Chandler ? Pritchford is gone so who is left ? Also we need Harris bad ! I would be really happy with Hollowell but totally estatic with Harris!!

    There can be a lot of reasons why a player with talent doesn’t put up big numbers in high school. I dont’ know Jurkin’s situation, but I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

    I think you can get an idea of a player’s talent by checking what schools/coaches were interested in a player. Jurkin had offers from some decent ACC and/or SEC schools. Also, I believe North Carolina and Tennessee (especially the former) were starting to make a strong push at the time he committed. I Roy Williams and Bruce Pearl have recruited pretty well in the past, so that may add a level of reassurance for you.

    Cody’s game Friday was an all around stat stuffer: only played the first 3 quarters, 27 pts, 12 rebs, 6 assists, 6 steals, and 6 blocks. Throw in a few nasty dunks not bad for 3/4 of a game.
