    Luke is great in front of the cameras. Very poised kid. Can’t wait to see him in action Friday night.

    Devin is one of the least talked about yet talented IU recruits in recent history. Those who don’t think he will get PT haven’t really seen him play much. Similar to Branden Dawson

  • I’m excited for next year! CTC seems to get really high quality kids.

    I hope so, a candy-striped version of Branden Dawson would be a welcomed addition. I think the best part about having that sort of contribution is that we don’t necessarily need him to be a starter right away…we can have the luxury of allowing him to take advantage of a particular match up, contribute on the defensive end, and fight for rebounds and loose balls. And that is with the losses of 5 to 6 of the top contributors from last season.

    Good point…I’ve seen him play in person a handful of times against very good competition. He’s a high-level rebounder who gets the majority of his points from 12-feet and in. I really liked his game in high school and I see him translating as a role player and solid glue guy that does a bit of everything.

    Did you happen to read the article posted on the Indy Star about him? It was interesting. He’s working with Greg Graham on being mentally prepared for the scrutiny that comes with playing at IU and working with Eric Gordon Sr. on his perimeter skills because that’s where he sees himself playing next season. He can certainly be a good piece for the next four years.

    Oh man are those summer workouts gonna be something with Devin, Troy and others going at it. Everybody trying to prove they are worthy of the “gang” colors (candystripes of course) Luke looks a little more solid than I expected..still needs the weight room..but he’s got a great frame to start from. this kid is gonna surprise people.
