    Looks great. Exactly what we need at the PG spot. I like how a Yogi highlight tape can turn into a Hanner Perea highlight tape in a matter of seconds.

  • jacobdetroy

    In the grand scheme of things rankings do not carry any meaning but in the mean time Yogi is SO underrated. It’s ridiculous.

    Yogi Ferrell..clap, clap, clapclapclap!

  • Jmfriedman

    Yikes, that crossover is deadly.  There is no way to defend it and if you lay back, he will drop one in your eye…… I like it.

    Can’t wait!  More excited about him than any other recruit from 2012, even GH. Will definately make everyone around him better. True PG.

  • MillaRed

    It’s funny isn’t it? Put the top 25 kids on the floor and let them go at it. Yogi will hold his own against all of them. I love Cody, but this kind of talent does not come around very often. We will not suck.

  • jacobdetroy

    This is going to sound whiny, so I apologize upfront. I can’t help but think that Yogi’s rating would be significantly higher if A) he was not committed, or B) he was showing interest in Kentucky. And just the thought of the latter makes me want to pUKe a little.

    SICK!!!  How high is he getting off his jump shot!?  He is exactly what we need for a point guard.  What I like most about it is when the 2012 class comes in the 2009 class will be seniors and will be leading these guys.  I think the 2009 class will work them hard before graduating.  I know the 2012 class won’t have to go through the hard knocks the 2009 class has had to but they will be able to pass on the work ethic it takes to succeed.  I like our options for 2012-2013.

    Not whiny at all, it’s the truth and on that thought at the end, it would make me throw up more than once and more than just a little.

    try living down the street from Corrupt Arena. 
    These “low rankings” will put chips on these guy’s shoulders.

    Yogi makes me SMILE!!!! this guy is so good its not fair to whoever is in his way. I don’t wanna sound soft but these guys coming in and current players make me wanna cry for how they all came together and wanna bring IU back, its been a long time and I’m not sure how i’ll take it, when were back on top. I wanna thank All the Players and Inside The Hall for all the hard work you do. Hoosier Nation is on the Horizon and this years team is gunna be solid and represent with class and fight hard in every game.

  • Ptharvey1

    Keep in mind though, not too many years back the same used to be said about our recruits. I’d say before too long players will be back to getting the ‘committed to IU’ bump again!

  • IU_Fan_99

    I like how I’m in most of these clips sitting in my Indiana shirt under the basket!

  • I don’t know where to put this but in a report just released in the Memphis Business Journal  IU was ranked #8 in basketball revenue.  Duke was #1 and Kentucky was 7. Interesting was how much each school spent per player.  IU spent $91,374 about average for a top 10 revenue school. Kentucky however spent  $198,000 per student about  $50k more than the 2nd highest spender (Duke).   Wonder if Kentucky has a salary cap lol      I don’t know if i can link on here.

    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this video was ‘Yogi can straight up ball’…

    He will be an incredible college pg, who I believe will play in the NBA one day (would for sure if he was 2 inches taller)…

    I can’t wait till he is the floor general of our team…come on we all know it , Yogi reminds us of Ishia, not that Yogi will ever be that good, but he has the potential to be great, he’s got all the tools…

    Go Hoosiers…

    I can’t say I was around in his IU days, but I’ve seen plenty of games on tape from Isiah Thomas’ time as part of the Big Red machine and the similarities between him and Yogi are striking. His high school teams feed from his confidence and of course his skills, he can score and take over, but he knows when to give it up and feed a hot hand. Now, if he can bring some of the defensive mentality from Zeke’s Bad Boys days that would really be something else, and of course, lead us to the promised land like Zeke!

    His shot looks amazing in this vid.  Sweet stroke. Best at IU since Eric Gordon.

    (Aesthetics only.  Obviously Hulls is a fantastic shooter.)

    Guys, I hate UK as much as anyone. Given that we all hate that school, why must we make mention of it and its coach on every single story? I’d rather ignore the topic altogether than talk about it incessantly, wouldn’t you?

  • Anonymous

    He is so quick and has incredible instincts with the ball.  The elevation he gets with his shot more than compensates for his height and he can certainly drain it from anywhere.  Could not dream of a better point guard.  Yogi will make everyone around him even better when he gets here.  I feel sorry for all the opposing teams who will have to defend this guy… bwahahahaha.

  • Plane1972

    It’s just what we do as Hoosier fans – hate on Kentucky. Something in our DNA. I know, it looks like an inferiority complex, but it goes back so far. Hard habit to break.

  • Plane1972

    I’m tearing up right now, cain. That was beautiful.

  • eph521

    It doesn’t bother me that many IU fans feel the way you do, but for me personally, I could care less about Kentucky, Purdue or any other team for that matter.

    Focusing on other teams reminds me of Ford vs Chevy, PC vs Mac…

    IU is a great school, has incredible basketball tradition regardless of any other school’s accomplishments or lack thereof. We don’t need someone else to suck in order for us to be good… that’s kind of like the Jerry Springer show.

    Having said that, carry on… and have fun with it, to each his own.

    The Yogi to Hanner “hoosier highlight film” Perea lob combination will create some of the best basketball highlights of the next 10 years. These two were born to play together, 2012 has postseason written all over it…

    Purdue near the bottom of the second page. Boiler down

    Like I said, I can’t stand UK. They’re my least favorite program for so many reasons. But you’re right, when we end up steering the topic of conversation on every IU Bball post toward UK and how corrupt Calipari is, it comes off as a sort of inferiority complex. It reminds me of Purdue fans who come to IU sites to bash the team. I happen to think we, as a fan base, are better than that.

    First off, while you may hate pUKe, you obviously don’t hate pUKe at the same level that some of us do and it is probably cause you have not had to put up with “them” as much or in the ways that some of us have had to. Too many stories and stories too long to go into. Having had my fair share of run ins with their so called fans I can only imagine what it is like for IHATEUK living down the street from Rape Arena especially if he lets it be know that he is an IU fan. If someone drones on and on about them or posts numerous comments about them on the same story line then I can agree with you. I usually agree with most of your posts but on this one I guess we will just have to agree to disagree. If just a small percentage of the people that come to this fine site post about something that they feel passionate about it can result in several comments. And no it does not make this IU fan feel like I have a inferiority complex in the least bit to say how I feel about “them”

    It is fun wearing red and white in a sea of blue! I have been to a few games in Lexington (it is quite the experience, one occasion they beat #1 Florida).  the UK v. IU rivalry is losing its luster nationally as well as IU v. Purdue.  I think that it is changing real quick because of the recent success by all.  Off the court, the recruiting battles are going to be awesome, I think it is going to be a fun and exciting time to be a college basketball fan in the area.
    I just know 12/10 is circled on my calendar…bragging rights in invaluable!
