One class of 2015 prospect speaking highly of the Hoosiers this spring is Ft. Wayne Carroll guard Chandler White.

The 6-foot-2 sophomore-to-be averaged close to 16 points per game in his first high school season and Inside the Hall has compiled a short collection of video clips from last weekend’s IndyBall.com Shootout of the talented prospect (Jersey No. 42):

    He is one of the players that would excite me if he were to sign. He seems like a star in the making, very naturally skilled

    If I was CTC (im not) Id wait to offer. Lets see how a few others pan out first. We should be able to start going after top 10 guys nationally here soon. Until we get a top 10 player from a place like New Jersey or Texas  CTC is not on the same plane as Cal,Coach K, or Self in recruiting. Motivation wise CTC may be the best. I think hes the best at developing players and as soon as the rest of the country figures it out the dynasty will begin. Chicago is a place that we should be able to clean up in. As far as traditional top 5 programs were geographically the closest. Why go to UNC when you can go 3 hours away from home and get the same exposure and coaching with the best facilities in the country.

    It’s really interesting to try to read CTC recruiting mentally with each class…I say try because as always in CTC I trust

     Texas is known for football and New Jersey is known for ….nothing. Not sure if you have seen Dukes or KU’s recruiting class recently….not even comparable to IU’s last three.

    I will take Victor Oladipo any day of the week over a top 10 kid like…Fab Melo, Josh Selby, Jelan Kendrick……who were all in the same class as Victor.

    New Jersey turns out tons of football and basketball studs. You must not look at recruiting services at all. I beleive Texas has 5or 6 players in the top 25 next year in basketball. I like you Kelin but youre misinformed on this one bud. Unc, duke, and UK have made a living in Jersey. Notre Dame recruits Jersey heavy in football along with USC,Penn State,Florida, and everyone else in football. Just check into it youll see my freind. I meant it as we need to be able to pluck top talent anywhere not just a few places. Lots of people think that New York has the basketball talent but New Jersey blows them away. St. Anthonys is in New Jersey. Bobby Hurleys dad  is the coach there and they are almost always ranked in the top 10 nationally if not national champs. I thought someone who Ive respected their opinions alot would have known about at least Jersey. I understand not realizing Texas had so much talent but they do man. Kansas gets alot of the Texas kids though. Isnt Wiggins the number 1 prospect in 2014 or 2013 from Texas as well? Seriously though per capita Jersey may turn out as much as any state in the country in both sports.

    888, while the national top 10 players are great, this is Indiana.  IU has had a long tradition of recruiting in-state players and making a team out of them.  The talent level in Indiana high school basketball is and has been at a high level for many years.  I am all for locking down the best players in Indiana, and we can make a run for the national title year after year.  Go IU !!!!!!

    Just got some numbers for ya since you think Jersey and texas dont turn out hoopers. Rivals player rankings for 2012 basketball. Texas has #s 4,10,18,20,29,53,54,55,68,74,84,99,102,107,115,119,137,and 145  texas in 2013 has #s 2,3,5,10,27,28,35,44,46,59,100,118  I think they turn out more than football players dont you. Now for New Jersey 2012 #s 3 and 76 trust me thats the worst year for Jersey I can remember. Jersey in 2013 has #s 21,34,38,64,80,90,105,127,and 136. they have in football #s 28,50, and 78. If youd look at the top 250 which is considered a real good player theyd have about 8 to 10. My point was though when we can go to places out of our usual spots and grab players weve arrived and yes I think CTC is doing great in recruiting but until he can go into these places like Coach K, Self, and Cal hes not the recruiter they are. Also CTC is looking at the top players everywhere hes just not chasing them YET because he cant win those battles YET! I think after this year he will be able to. You can have Victor because I love him too but Id love to have Jabari Parker (chicago), Julius Randle(Texas), We offered Randle I think. A school like IU should be able to get kids like this too. Dont sell us short. If Baylor can get players like that then we should!!! I know they was cheating to do it but we dont have too

  • Plankton

    Being one of the IU alums who wound up in Dallas I can assure you that the talent level coming out of Texas has come a long way over the last 10 years. They may not be as consistently well coached as in Indiana but just have to look at the recruits in the toP 20 each year. One thing that is. consistent is they’re take our sports very seriously here and it’s of just football anymore.

  • 888

    According to CTC he wants to get the best players from Indiana and mix them with top players nationally. Its his statement not mine and I agrree with him. We are scouting several top 10 players every year  were just not offering yet, Like I said hes not on Cal, Coach K,and Selfs level in recruiting YET but soon will be. I posted a commnt back to Kelin last night showing rivals ranked players from Jersey and Texas but its not posted. Texas has 18 players in the top 150 in 2012, 12 in 2013, jersey has 9 in 2013. If you dont think in a year or so when we start winning big that CTC wont go after the best players nationally then your not thinking. Hed be the only coach who doesnt. We dont need another RMK. Chicago should be considered Indiana territory.

  • Kelin Blab

     Cal also came to Indiana and got Teague and Pursued Gary Harris….I am sure there is talent in those areas but the rankings mean very very little given the variation and the ultimate end result. My point for Crean is, recruiting your state is a bigger priority than any other and secondly and again I will take Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey over the guys I previously mentioned who are all ranked higher.

    Baylor gets players illegally and does nothing with them…ask Kentucky. IU has won without recruiting those areas and so have other teams. The talent from top to bottom does not compare to Indiana’s

    Chicago is shady as $&#@!, not an easy place to recruit. Corruption pervades far more than just basketball, but something about recruiting up there sets me on edge. Think its a reason Illinois had a difficult time finding a coach, there are much easier places to recruit kids just as good.

    I’ll also add that IU doesn’t have the cache with out-of-state top-10 kids yet. Crean did go after elite Texas and Jersey kids, including the 2013 class. But they wanted to go to the Dukes of the world.

    When the fit is right it’ll work out.

    I don’t think anyone would dispute IU should pursue the best talent available regardless of locale, but it’s all about fit. Crean wants team guys, winners and real students. If he can find those guys in the Top 10 nationally, I’m sure he will outwork anyone including Cal, Coach K and Self to sell Indiana to the kid. 
     
    Quick stat for the nerds: There are currently 15 guys from Indiana on NBA rosters and 40 from Texas. Based on populations of 6.5 million and 25.6 million for Indiana and Texas, respectively, Indiana puts more guys in the NBA than Texas as a percentage of total population (and it’s really not even a very close race). If populations were equal, and ratio held up, Indiana would have 60 guys on NBA rosters.

    I think CTC recruits players based upon their fit within the program.  He doesn’t try to be Calipari (thankfully) and recruit top 10 players and worry about how they fit at a later date.  I don’t want to root for a program like that.

    That said, I believe that CTC does look outside of Indiana for talent.  A quick look of our recruiting boards will show you that:

    2013
    Anya (#15), Maryland
    Zeigler, Detroit
    Fischer, Wisconsin

    2014
    Alexander (11), Chicago
    Russell (14), Florida via Kentucky
    Harris, Michigan

    I think it is of paramount importance to secure our borders, because Indiana has a ton of talent.  I think that CTC does a nice job of going out of state and filling in the roster with guys who fit.  I think he does a commendable job!

    Chicago is corrupt but not every kid is looking for a payday. Thats why UK has always done well there. They pay players. Yep and basically you agreed with everything i was saying. We go after top 10 talent just cant getm yet. And yet is the key word. I beleive after the success we have this year  in the tournament and the draft CTC will be able to get top 10 guys. You also said IU doesnt have the cache with these guys yet and basically that has to do with the coaches reputations for suceess. If Cal,CoachK and Self were to leave their schools the recruits would follow the coaches not just go to those schools.
