    Obviously Yogi has a nice stat line. I look forward to watching him play some strong competition here in the Indy area this year.

    Otherwise, Trey Lyles stats look incredible for a sophomore – he continues to impress.

    Not sure how good Jeffersonville is this year, but typically they bring it.  To play at Jeff and throw up 24 and 10 in the first game of the year as a Sophomore is impressive.

    Lyle, Lyles, Bluiett, Blackmon…that sounds nice. Alex, the hyperlink is broken when you click on some of the players.

  • Kelin Blab

    Trevon Bluiett should be top priority..He just plays and just wins.

  • Anonymous

    Add the fact that he’s been playing with Yogi and already has the chemistry.

  • Anonymous

    I respectfully disagree. I think Jaquan Lyle is te top priority. He led his team to a sectional title his freshman year and has a better skill set than blueitt. Love to have em both and I believe we will get both of them, but Lyle is top priority in this class. He will be the one that can put them at the top of class rankings.

    Hoping the NBA won’t be letting kids come from high school to the league. Trey looks more like Tim Duncan everyday! Sky’s the limit!! Bluiett would be a great addition for 14! Devin’s now healthy so he should make some major strides as well! Lots to look forwards to!!

  • MillaRed

    I was able to see all 3 games Yogi played over the holiday and these are my observations.

    – Yogi could go for 25 every game if he wanted to. You can actually see him holding himself back.

    – His team has 2-3 bigs that think they are point guards. Not out of control but if they gave the ball up more Yogi would reward them.

    – When Yogi doesn’t feel like things are going well, he just scores. His fade away on the left wing is SICK.

    – Blueitt really, really, really benefits from Yogi. I’m talking half his scores. He has talent, can drain the 3 on occasion and looks very good for a soph. But I think it will be very interesting to see how he does without Yogi. He may score the same but will need to shoot more.

    – Yogi’s left hand is amazing. Just amazing.

    – The kid can jump. Was very surprised with his hops.

    – If there is a better PG in the country. Have at it. Yogi will be an all-american as a senior if not sooner.

  • Thanks for letting me know. Should be fixed.

  • Bleeding Crimson

    I have to agree, Jaquan Lyle should be top priority for said reasons.  Bluiett is a great ball play and I don’t see why we can’t get both unless the scholly situation is jeoparidzed.  Regardless, we can make room for both.  These two are heads and shoulders above our other recruits.  Plus having two Lyle’s on the team would be cool but maybe a little confusing but who cares…maybe except for Jaquan.

  • Bleeding Crimson

    Is Yogi a lefty?  I wasn’t aware of that.  Icing on the cake.

  • MillaRed

    No he is right handed. But he uses his left as effectively as his right. It’s a huge weapon on the dribble drive.

  • IUfanPurduePhD

    Good to see Jurkin scoring in double digits with consistency. I’d love to see his blocks and rebs if possible.

  • Jpra4iu

    I agree with iufanpurduephd on Jurkin and would like to add looking forward to see how Hanners offence comes along last years ppg was low. Was there better scoring threats on his team ? I was jw

  • Anonymous

    Agreed.  Seen him play several times over the summer.  His change of speed and direction are unreal.  I am not exaggerating when I say it is pointless for guys to pick Yogi up full court, he blows right by them.  All they can really hope to do is slow him down a bit.  

    If we think Jordan and the Hoos are getting the ball up the floor quickly now, wait until you see Yogi next year.  In the same way Zeller has made a difference, so too will Yogi.   

  • MillaRed

    Have to agree. Lyle does not have Yogi feeding him bunnies 5 times a game. He is doing a lot more with less.

  • MillaRed

    One of those teams ran a box and one D and the trailer chased Yogi all over the court like a dork. It was effective for a while because the O didn’t really screen for Yogi. But eventually Yogi said to H with this and just started draining contested three’s and fade aways.

    You can’t get in the kid’s head. Nor Cody’s. They have seen everything.

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    I honestly feel like this year’s team would be a 22+ game winning team if Yogi was a freshman this year.  He just brings something that most teams don’t have and IU definitely doesn’t have, and that’s a natural born play maker!

    If everyone stays, I envision a title contending team when we run out:

    CZ, AE – Seniors
    Yogi, Hanner, JH, Buss, & PJ – Juniors
    Hartman and DD Jr. – Sophomores
    Lyles, Blackmon & potentially Lyle & Blueitt – Freshman

    That will be a very difficult team to match up with athletically!

  • IUJeff

    This team can win more than that if Cody stays on the court, and I think you are way too far in the future talking about our next good chance at championships. 

    I think we have as good a chance as anyone to win it all next year with the 5 freshmen. Hulls, Elston, Watford – SeniorsOladipo, Sheehey – JuniorsZeller, Abel, Etheringon – SophomoresFerrel, Hollowell, Jurkin, Perea, Patterson – FreshmenWho can match up with our bench? No one. Who will be able to match up with the starting five? Not most teams. We will be able to wear teams down with that kind of depth and athleticism.

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Oh, I think they’ll be competitive for a championship one of the next two years at least but I’m just saying that I’d be disappointed if we didn’t have a legitimate shot in 2014 because that team would have everything:  Size (and lots of it), Guard Play, Shooters, etc.

    dont forget about Cliff Alexander. He likes IU and is a man child. Hes my priority. Hes got NBA written all over him.

  • Plane1972

    It’ll be like the good ol’ days of the Graham brothers.
