Trevon Bluiett recaps Saturday visit to Bloomington

Indiana’s football season opened on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium, but in the hours before kickoff back in Bloomington the basketball coaching staff was busy hosting a prospect near the top of the program’s wish list for the 2014 class.

Trevon Bluiett, who helped lead Park Tudor to a state championship last spring, took an unofficial trip to the IU campus and came away impressed.

“It went real well, really well,” Bluiett told Inside the Hall on Tuesday. “We went up there Saturday evening. All of the coaches were there. We just sat around the conference table and he (Coach Crean) was just telling me how important it was to get me to come to Indiana and how important I am.”

The 6-foot-5, 190-pound forward, who led all scorers with 21 points in the Class 2A title game as a freshman, said he was appreciative of the staff’s message during his visit.

“I just thought that felt good that even though they have a lot of commits, how they still care for me to come there,” he said. “That meant a lot.”

Indiana was the first school to offer Bluiett a scholarship last September and the Hoosiers already hold commitments from a pair of his Spiece Indy Heat AAU teammates, James Blackmon Jr. and Trey Lyles.

The Park Tudor sophomore said he keeps in regular contact with Lyles and added that he could see himself playing with both guys in college.


“I would definitely love to play with them at the next level,” he said of Blackmon Jr. and Lyles. “That’s how good of teammates they are.”

With three years remaining in his high school career and over two until he can sign a National Letter of Intent, Bluiett has time to consider all of his options, including offers from IUPUI, Purdue and Xavier. But even at this early stage of his recruitment, it’s clear that the direction of the IU program holds a level of intrigue.

“I think it’s going to go uphill from here,” Bluiett said. “They’ve got a lot of 2012 commits. I think they’re ranked second in the country for the best recruiting class. I think it’s definitely a positive thing and they just keep adding on class after class.”

    “Tre-von Blew-it” just does not sound that good. If he hears that it might cause him to want to commit elsewhere. Going to need a new cheer.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that a lot of these recruits are waiting to see how IU does this year? If we have a real turnaround this year and make it to the tourney, CTC’s office doors are going to be kicked in by recruits trying to commit. I sure hope Athlon is incorrect. (I honestly could see next season going either way)

    We were way too close in a lot of games last year, evidence the Pomeroy “luck ratings”.  Take that, the fact we return everyone, add a McDonald’s All American and return to a slightly weaker conference, we should win 4-5 more games in our conference and should win 2-3 more games out of conference, which brings us to just over the bubble, top half of B10 and into the NCAA tournament.

    That’s my prediction.

    That’s too one of my worst run-on sentances.

  • HoosierDadE

    That was one of the greatest sentences ever, you talked about IU, made valid points, explained about Cody Z, predicted a new win total, and the bubbleness of IU’s team this year.

    In the end, solid post :)

    It’s been a progression.  Year one was pretty much whipped from the opening tip.  The second year a lot of games were close ’til about halftime.  Last year they’d hold on in several until about halfway through the second half.  I’m hoping this is the year that there’s enough depth to make it all the way through the game without wearing down.

    Yeah..the Pomeroy luck ratings. No disrespect to Mr. Pomeroy, but i’m not so much a believer in luck. You execute what you practice each day and win the close ones b/c of your determination. Or you hope to get lucky in the end.

    Sporting news has us at 6th and Athlon at 9.  You can safely assume that we will fall somewhere between 6-9.  If Elston plays up to his potential, CZ plays like a Junior instead of FR, and Mo plays at 90% we should be 6th (maybe better) if not we could slide a bit.  This indeed has a big impact on the new recruits.  If CTC can coach as well as he recruits we should be in the middle of the BT pack (assuming the players are healthy)….when that happens Trevon will come here, and the pipeline of great players will just increase….
