Scouting notes, recruiting updates

· Robinson, Indiana’s most recent commit, drew praise from both Jerry Meyer of 247Sports and Jody Demling of The Louisville Courier-Journal for his ability to get the ball to the basket on Sunday.

· Hoopniks.com caught up with Iverson, who said Florida is recruiting him the hardest and also mentioned Arizona, Connecticut and Syrcause. Meyer noted that Iverson hopes to hear from Kentucky.

· Lee, who was one of the biggest risers nationally in the spring, told Demling he’s still being recruited hard by Indiana and that he hopes to narrow down his list soon. Lee had a strong showing Sunday night according to Josh Gershon of Scout.com.

· Pinson, who holds an Indiana offer and took an unofficial visit last month, drew the praise of Dave Telep of ESPN.com for his unselfish play and smart decision making.

· Josh Paunil of the National Recruiting Spotlight reports the Ojeleye, who took an unofficial to Bloomington in late June, plans to cut down his list after July.

    That wingspan of Robinson is insane!

    I noticed how easily Cliff Alexander finishes/dunks (video) with little more than a hop and thought it odd for someone who’s only 6’8″. Now it makes sense with a 7’2″ wingspan. The idea of playing alongside Trey has got to be appealing to Cliff, Marcus, and BeeJay…it should make things easier on you having a guy with Trey’s size and skills opening up the interior so you can showcase your game versus getting triple teamed. Meeks is another one, at 297 pounds he’d definitely be that dump-truck, cave troll, beast…immovable force I’ve always wanted.

    Trey is B1G ready right now. Glad to hear he will be 6’10″ or better at IU. There isn’t a smaller PF that can stop him inside or a bigger PF that can stop his dribble.

    Match up nightmare.

    Don’t forget Ron Patterson, who is 1/2″ shorter than Robinson, has a 6’10″ wingspan.

    Robinson’s wingspan is a very pleasant surprise. A guy with his skill, basketball IQ, explosiveness, and physical attributes (6’4″, 6’8″ wingspan) is the kind of guy that sounds better every time you mention him. To top it all off, he seems like a great guy who is truly excited to be a Hoosier. I may be as excited to get him as I am to get Trey.

  • inLinE6

    Don’t forget that wingspan is one of the most important measurements that Crean was keen on. When he talks about a recruit he mentions wingspan. If he cares waist span, I got my shot too!

  • SCHoosier

    I guess he has “flaps down” on a dunk?:)

  • SCHoosier

    So..now when do we get Anya in for a visit?

  • Just saying…

    Actually, he has a 7’2″ or 7’3″ wingspan…remember, he is a +12 wingspan guy. Not many of those floating around. And Coach Crean said that Hanner and PJ both measured out +6 for PJ and +7 or so for Hanner in the wingspan department. very long.

    In haventseen to much of Robinson yet but from what all of you say hes a good one.I think these next few IU teams will be as dominant as those pUKe teams of the late 90s with Patino. Just hope the Miami Heat dont come a callin. CTC has a great thing going here and can become a legend at IU. I think he knows it and loves where the program is headed.

    Length, like athleticism, is something you cant teach. And what a great asset it can be.

  • INUnivHoosier

    Don’t forget to vote! It’s the finals!

  • HoosierKen73

    Hey Crean said in one of his videos on the ‘Tour’, that Patterson is 12″ over…that’d be more like 87″ (6′ 10″ would only be 82″…I say ‘only..lol..)…in fact he said he’s never seen anything like it… a real freak….referred to it as ‘spiderman’ material… Not sure where you read your information, but I believe Crean. Think I read that somewhere else as well.

  • HoosierKen73

    Sorry, should’ve read your’s b4 I posted. Yes, according to Crean it should be about 7’3″ real spiderman material.
