    I just got a feeling Luke Fischer is gonna be better than most are expecting right now. James Blackmon may be a Jay Edwards or Allen Iverson type guard that can completely take over a game at any time no matter the competition.

    Had Luke not committed to IU a year ago, I wonder what his ranking would be? This recruit ranking stuff is kind of laughable. If you look at the the 2010 top 100 recruits, there are dozens of kids we have never heard of and then you have VO who is a 1st round possibility in the NBA this year. Truth be told he is IU’s MVP and most complete player this season thus far. Then you have Sheehey who gives us 12 points in 22 min per game and is getting better. Both of these guys are hard workers an extremely competitive, yet you don’t read that much in top 100 player evaluations.

    I believe Vonleh and Troy are as good as their billing. Robinson sound like he could develop into a great combo guard. Davis is a bulldog and a leader. Luke would probably start on all but 10 teams as a FR next year.

    I will take our current cast of players with the type that CTC is recruiting any day. CTC is recruiting and developing players in a manner similar to Coach K, Izzo, and Pitino and I am happy with that. This means a lot of wins and team battling for conference and national championships.

    We have a top 5 class which will probably drop to 8 or 9 before its all over but I wouldn’t trade with any other team. Like what we got… speed, skill, shooting, length, and explosiveness.

  • Evansville Hoosier

    Usually I’d be the pessimist and say “yeah, we’ll drop” but there’s only 3 recruits left ranked higher than Noah Vonleh and not many recruits left period… I could see us falling to 6, at the very worst 7. This class is amazing!

  • MillaRed

    Hate to sound like a broken record, but I think it speaks for itself. Luke is the centerpiece on the #17 nationally ranked high school team in the country. And he is a CENTER. Which if we haven’t noticed, might be missing next season.

    Luke is a big deal.

  • Benhyoung14

    Will somebody please get James Blackmon Jr some help? His numbers are ridiculous this year. I expect Fischer and Blackmon to shoot up the rankings.

  • unclekerfuffle

    I probably just missed it somewhere along the line but what is JBJ’s FG% this year?

  • SCHoosier

    U can also expect other schools to start trying to nibble away at Blackmon’s commitment to the Hoosiers..he seems solid..spending a lot of time at games..but he’s gonna be “worked on”>

  • Scott Berryman

    I love Cody, but we have been missing a C for a long time. Cody is more of a PF. If Cody ever develops a game with his back to the basket he could be a great C.

  • MillaRed

    With his dad guiding him I just dont see it. Sr being around favors IU.

  • HoosierDD

    Blackmon is tearing it up. I know it’s early but what is the ’14 Mr. Basketball race looking like?
