Luke Fischer “real excited” about offer from Indiana

2013 Germantown (WI) forward Luke Fischer is a new name to surface on the Indiana recruiting radar in recent weeks. The 6-foot-9, 210-pound Fischer is playing up one age group this summer with Wisconsin Swing and has been watched closely by the Indiana coaching staff during the first week of the July evaluation period.

Tom Crean watched Fischer at both the NY2LA Next Level Invitational last week in Milwaukee and at the Kentucky Hoopfest in Louisville on Sunday. Inside the Hall caught up with Fischer, who has a wingspan of 6-foot-11, after a pool play game at the Kentucky Hoopfest for a Q & A:

On the recent scholarship offer from Indiana:

“He (Tom Crean) said he was really impressed with the film I sent to him. He thinks I would fit great into Indiana basketball. I’m real excited about that.”

On what he knew about Crean before he arrived at Indiana and was coach at Marquette:

“I was a Marquette fan and stuff. I always watched him and when Dwyane Wade was there, I loved watching that. I knew where he was coming from and his type of basketball.”

On the strengths of his game and what he’s working on this summer:

“Probably the post game is my favorite. Jump hooks. I’m looking to face up more and take jump shots when I’m open. I’m really evolving my game to the outside.”

On the schools that have offered and the schools showing interest:

“Indiana, Marquette, Creighton and Drake all offered. And then Wake Forest and Wisconsin are also interested.”

On his unofficial visit to Indiana in May:

“I loved it. It was really fun. The coaching staff was great and the campus was really nice. I liked it a lot.”

On if he’ll take any unofficial visits after AAU season concludes:

“Yeah, hopefully I’ll get a couple visits in during August and maybe a couple of camps, too.”

On the factors that will be important in his decision:

“I haven’t really thought about any of that yet. I’m just kind of letting schools contact me and trying to absorb it.”

    So he’s a post player? Ok, I’m sold.

    Sounds like your typical Bo Ryan kid from WI, in which case, we could use one of those.

    “Probably the post game is my favorite. Jump hooks.”   That’s what I want to hear from someone 6’9″.  I would, however, like to see him eat several sandwiches because 210 isn’t much on 6’9″.

    Nice…adam I laughed out loud at this one..

  • Kelin Blab

    I can’t remember the last 6’9 kid that I have heard mention his post game or jump hooks. It has all been, work on my ball handling etc. Maybe him and hanner could become workout buddys. Hanner with a jumphook is lethal and Luke with Hanner Hops is just as lethal.

    Apparently Crean loves a good wingspan…
    Luke… 6’11
    Hanner …7’4
    Patterson …6’10
    Watford….7ft

    If Crean liked a good ‘waistespan’ I have a shot at a scholly….

    would not be against this kid jumping on board anytime he wants. Kudos to the coaches for getting the gems under the radar on this kid. He’s got potential to be 6’11” 230 by the time he graduates HS. Even if not, he’s got guard skills at the PF position. Just needs weight and post game.

  • GFDave

    I like what the kid had to say and the enthusiasm he seems to have about IU.  Grab up this kid and a point guard and 2013 starts to look really, really good.

    Easy tiger, I think your five year clock has expired. While I’d love to see you suit up, I can’t go through more Guy Marc disappointments.

  • 11th and Done (Dunn)

    yup

  • 11th and Done (Dunn)

    yup

    The pedigree on this kid is undeniable – opponents will find it insurmountable  lol

  • HoosNation

    dont forget blackmon jr measured wingspan at 6’11”

  • Mrhoosierboy

    TJ Warren is the best player in the KY Hoopfest by far…even playing with a bad finger…Tj and Mitch McGary at Brewster Acadamy next year is gonna be unstoppable!!!

  • Adam B

    In all seriousness, he would a great compliment to Zeller and Perea. With Fischer, we could continue to play big even if Perea/Zeller got into foul trouble.

    As a fringe 4/3 star, he’s also a likely four year player. We need players to stick around for a while with guys like Hollowell, Perea, (and maybe Yogi) possibly leaving early.

    Dont forget our former recruiting target aaron thomas will be there too.

    and Hollowell’s is reportedly 7’2”.

    Seems like a good rebounder, seems to be a good passer, seems extremely mobile,  shoots like me which is unfortunate.  Has an attribute that can never be coached and that is height.
