    24 rebounds for Trey…holy cow!  Jaquan with a triple double, another statistical accomplishment.  These guys are sophomores in high school playing varsity, man, what will they be doing as seniors?  Nice to have this stuff to read after two L’s this week.

    Has the shipped already sailed on Willis with the commitment from Fischer to IU? I would think so but perhaps Willis is a 4 and Fischer a 5 so they can co-exist.

    Wow…it seems Patterson, Hollowell, and yogi are tearing it up every game.

  • cdog

    Any way we can get Trey to IU before 2014?

  • IU1972

    Could seriously use Yogi right now!  Or any guy who can pass it. 

  • Agree. 

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Man, Lyles just keeps racking up the rebounds.  That sure would be a nice change for this team right now!  It would be nice to have a rebound stat stuffer!

    Also, good time for this article, to alleviate a little bit of the sting from this past week!

    Jaquan Lyle is starting to look like he could be one of those ultra-elite, once-every-10-year players.

    Bo Zeigler looks dangerous, too.  His speed creates all sorts of matchup problems for opposing teams. 

    I’d love to see both of them at IU, regardless of our situation with bigs.

    Also very glad both Patterson and Hollowell are coming.  We need both of them.       

  • Man I absolutely love watching this kid play and can’t wait til he gets here. As good as he is now just wait and see how much better he is in 3 years. I’m sure he could be a 1 and done if he liked I’m just hoping he is smart enough to hang around and get his education. Starting next year our team will officially be back and I can’t wait!!

    So what the deal with Colin Hartman? He does not put up very impressive numbers. Seems like he scores less then ten points each game. Has anyone seen him play?

  • BEAT KENTUCKY

    Watching these recruits is really exciting . I don’t see how Buss isn’t a top 50 recruit . Dosent really bother me since he is coming our way , But for him it would be nice .Does anyone know our status with Jaquan Lyle or if he is leaning at any school ?

    I’m assuming you’re talking about Peter Jurkin, right?

  • N71

    Hartman is on a good team so he doesn’t have to carry such a load but I wonder if he isn’t where Hollowell was at the same age.  Capable but doesn’t always have his foot on the gas.  Hollowell really overcame that knock and Hartman may need to work on that issue, whatever you want to call it.

    He does more than what the stats show, kind of like Victor and Will but different.  Hartman is a truly gifted shooter, tall, long, and smart.  On a team where he’s not the focus of the defense he could really have a time of it but I’ve only seen him play with Cathedral.

    We will effectively be trading Roth and Hulls shooting for Hollowell and Hartman.  Hollowell is 6’8″, Hartman 6’6″.  I know Ethrington is a shooter but he doesn’t seem to be seeing any time so not sure what that means. 

    Don’t worry about Hartman, he’s a gifted/special player if you get the chance to see him.  At one point he was the #1 player in the State of Indiana for his class.  Not sure who that is currently though.

    Who will be the odd man out as far as PT next year for our freshman?

    Yes, the schollys are full and he’d be an oversign.

    Just a guess but I would say Patterson and possibly Jurkin. Creek(maybe), watford, hulls, yogi, hanner, cody, will, vic, and jeremy will get most of the minutes imo.

    I was present for the Luers vs Northrop game to watch JB2 vs the Scott twins (Bryson already committed to PUke, and Brenton looks to be headed to Lafayette as well) and I have to say the game was exciting. I know that everyone bashed me because I stated my opinion from JB2’s 8th grade season, but it appears that he still has “effort” issues on the defensive end of the floor (trust me, I’m being VERY generous and nice with that comment). He didn’t shoot well (2-7 from the arc) and gave up fast break after fast break to the runnin Bruins.

    On the bright side, James Blackmon Sr appeared to be disappointed with Jr’s effort as well. Jr was sat down for 2 extended periods of time in the game. He sat for the final 3 minutes of the 1st half in a tight game (4 pt Luers lead at the half).  Dad wasn’t happy at all with his attitude and effort in the 4th quarter of what was a very tight game (2pt Northrop lead when Jr went to the bench). Jr’s teammate, Jaylen Smith (younger brother of O$U RB Rod Smith) decided to put the Knights on his man-sized shoulders and took over (34 pts and I’m guessing 15 boards, or so it seemed).

    JB2 has TONS and TONS of offensive upside. His crossover and jumpshot are a thing of beauty. I sure hope Blackmon Sr gets his mind right before his arrival in a few years.

    **Side note** PUke is getting a MONSTER in Bryson Scott. If he played a little less selfish, he’d be 5 star material. Reminded me of a shorter Eric Gordon. If his twin brother goes as well, they will be a dynamic duo. Should make for a great rivalry revival.

    I really like Alexander. I wish there were more reports on where we are at on his list. He works hard and hustles for a big guy, which is not very common for that age.

    I agree with N71, Cathedral is one of the most talented teams in the state.

    Hate to see my alma mater lose to Carmel though.

    Man, was my birthday hard on the win/loss column for the future recruits. January 11th, a date that will live in infamy.

    Hate to see anyone lose to Carmel.

  • Plane1972

    I agree. It took me three paragraphs last week to say the same thing Recker just said in two sentences. Very succinct observation.

    Hartman is Etherington.  This means both of these guys will be behind VO, WS, Remy, Hollowell and Buss when Etherington is a JR and Hartman is a FR.  They may be behind Devin Davis too depending on where Davis will play.

    As for the talented team comment, I guess Jordan should have score 20 instead of 30 because he was on a talented team.  Pippen still got his 20.  Bird, Parrish and McHale all got their points on a talented team.

    Hartman seems like a great kid, he just hasn’t developed much the past 2 years.

  • Anonymous

    Jurkin and I say Perea.  Both are very unrefined when it comes to scoring.

    CZ and CW will log 30+ minutes a night.  With VJ gone I could see Buss stealing some minutes.

    To be honest, our guard play in the Big 10 has been so disgusting defensively that maybe Yogi, Remy and Buss get a lot of defensive time next year.

    We have to have the worst defensive guard combo in Hulls and VJ in the Big 10.

  • Recker777

    Throw Creek in the mix as well and if Hartman is Etherington hard to see playing time for either of them from what you say.  I would imagine somebody will leave given there just will not be enough time to go around and we need the grants as well.

  • Recker777

    I should add you stated Hartman has not developed must the last two years. That certainly is the risk you take when you get early verbals. Some will pan out and some will not.
