    This kid is going to have a great shot at being a super solid 4 yr stud. He looks to have extremely soft hands and a soft touch around the hoop. I would like to see him get better playing through contact. Work on that body strength. I hope Cody stays for 1 year with this kid, he reminds me alot of Cody.

    I’d like to see video of Luke playing defense against others his size. At times I see him holding his arms beyond vertical; leaning toward the opponent. Agaist a taller, stronger player that may result in some silly fouls. Nevertheless, we have plenty of reason to be very excited about Luke joining the Hoosiers.

    Granted, it’s a highlight reel, but I have no clue why this kid dropped in the rankings. Sure, he needs to add muscle and sometimes his inside shots seem thrown at the backboard, but based on last year’s videos, it seems fairly obvious that he has improved.

    Best thing is this kid will be a four year player..and under IU’s program will get better and stronger each year. Those little turn around bunnies won’t be available in the B-10..so getting stronger to the bucket..finishing thru contact..and developing a face the basketball game will all be important.

    I really like this guy. He’s so fundamentally sound. Once he gets into IU’s training program and adds a little bit of athleticism to that skill set he’s going to be a really solid 4-yr player. A couple of years from now this kid is just going to be another great example of Crean finding an underrated prospect and turning him into a potential pro prospect. Fischer, Jurkin, and Perea will be a really solid front line in the post-Cody era.

    He’s just way, way underrated. In fact, he’s somewhat of a case study in why the rankings are often wrong, imho, or at least are misconstrued in terms of what they mean for a college player’s potential.

    Everyone up here in Wisconsin knows exactly who he is. He just won a state championship, is a favorite for Mr. Basketball and repeating as champs.

    They are very bitter Bo let this guy go. He is the typical UW big that has been driving us crazy. But CTC will teach him to stay on his feet instead of flopping every other play like they do up here.

    Another difference from Ryan: Crean’s offense will…hold on to your hat, sit down, exhale, buckle your seat belt…allow Luke to shoot the ball BEFORE the 32 second mark on the shot clock.

    Absolutely shocking, I know.

    I think Luke will be one of those types of players that alot of us talk about in that he will be one of those glue type of guys that makes sure whomever might play ahead of him has for sure earned it in the practices and will be a solid contributor a little ways down the road. More than likely not the first or maybe not even the second year but when it is all said & done he will be a big reason that we have success down the road. I’m like some of the others I would really like to see some footage of him playing against some other players that are the same size as him, but I’m guessing that CTC has seen this and he has competed against this type of player well enough for coach to still be high enough on him to bring him on board.
    + Seems to have pretty good footwork
    – Seems to get pushed out of position at times, will need to get considerably stronger to have good success in the B1G
    + Looks to have decent range on his outside jumper
    - Does seem to, at times, throw the ball as much or more than actually shooting the ball. This seems to happen when he needs one more step or dribble and instead of taking one or the other he chooses to do this.
    + Seems to have soft hands and does a really good job of keeping the ball up high whether it is on a rebound or on a rebound.
