A pair of Indiana commitments — Hanner Perea and Trey Lyles — had successful outings at adidas Nations on Friday in Harbor City, California, while IU’s top 2012 recruiting target, Gary Harris, shined in the Nike Global Challenge in Hillsboro, Oregon. Some notes from day one at each event below:

ADIDAS NATIONS

All Friday morning contests at adidas Nations were exhibitions and Lyles’ USA Blue 2013 team got the better of Perea’s Latin America group, 84-72. According to Michael Barnett, Lyles finished with 14 points and nine rebounds while Perea had 23 points and 12 rebounds.

The teams met again Friday night in their first pool play game and the USA Blue 2013 team prevailed again, 87-85. Lyles finished with four points and three rebounds and Perea had 16 points and six rebounds.

2012 commitments Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell and Jeremy Hollowell, who was a late addition to the event, are expected to participate beginning today. The CBS Sports Network will broadcast an adidas Nations highlight show at noon (ET) on Sunday and will also show the championship game live at 7 p.m. (ET) on Monday.

The adidas Nations schedule is available here.

Harris’ USA Midwest team cruised to an easy 103-58 win over Germany and the five-star guard led all scorers with 17 points in just 19 minutes. Harris was 7-of-12 from the field, 3-of-5 from the free throw line and also had nine rebounds, three steals and an assist.

The Global Challenge continues today for Harris as the USA Midwest team will meet the USA West team at 8 PM local time at Liberty High School. USA West, led by 18 points from five-star 2013 power forward Aaron Gordon, beat Puerto Rico 105-74 on Friday.

    I just came off ITH’s  “scholarsip numbers” board, and looking at the roster for next season, I’m so confused as to how we could still be in the running for Gary Harris……we see updates on his summer activities and the perception is that we are still heavily involved with his recruitment, but are we really going to lose 2 guys off next year’s team to make room? In what scenario could we lose 2 guys?    I don’t get it.    Would love to have him, but there is no way we are losing two guys of next year’s squad.

    Hanner’s number are very impressive.  He seems to have got a lot better on the offensive end as far as scoring.  Not sure what his points came from but it doesn’t really matter to me, the kid is going to be a lottery pick in a few years if he continues to develop

    This is confusing to me aswell because i thought in the big ten you get 13 schollys plus 1 oversign scholly so to me i thought we only needed to lose one guy in order to open up space for Harris. ???

    Or also Hulls is on record as saying he would give up his scholarship for a year to get Harris, so then we would be good right? We currently have enough scholarships for 2012-13 i thought since we have currently have 14, and u get 13 plus an oversign! So all we need is to open one scholarahip to get Harris! Right? Anybody more informed on this than me? Thanks

    Thanks, thats why i asked on here because i knew only accurate info is given on this site unlike others. Thanks for clearing that up! What about the scholatship numbers and where we stand?

    We are allowed to have 13 commits plus the oversign. Once the season rolls around there are ONLY 13 scholarships available. The oversign doesn’t give you a 14th player..it just allows for a 14th player to be commited before the person “adjusting” does what ever it is he is going to do.
    If a coach has advance notice about  guy leaving, going to prep-school, going pro etc.. he can accept the oversign so he has the guys verbal, before it all works out with the guy leaving.

    BTown, When school starts in 2012, we can have only 13 players on scholarship. Recruiting has lots of potential for unforeseen events (player is injured, has a change of heart, can’t qualify academically, etc.), so the oversign rule was put in place to allow coaches some room for contingency plans. The oversign rule applies to future seasons but not to the season being played. As our numbers for the 2012 season stand right now, one of the current 14 would have to not be on scholarship that season. If Gary Harris joins the group and is given a scholarship, then two of the current 14 could not have scholarships. There has been lots of speculations about how this might work out – players willing to play without being on scholarship, players leaving early for the NBA, players red-shirting or going to prep school, players transferring – but, of course, it is just speculation. Bottom line, though, is that we currently have 14 and are hoping to add #15. A player would have to be removed from the scholarship list before Gary Harris could be promised a scholarship and an additional player has to be removed before the 2012 season starts so that we have no more than 13 players on scholarship on the 2012 team.
