2014 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board

The 2014 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board is a collection of information on recruits that Indiana is believed to be recruiting for its 2014 class.

Information that appears on school lists is collected from public recruit profiles on ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247Sports and various news outlets. School lists only denote reported interest, not offers. The board should not be considered a complete list of prospects being recruited and is not endorsed by Indiana University.

If there is a prospect we should consider adding, please drop us an email at insidethehall@gmail.com.

    Good article from Jeff Goodman of ESPN on top transfers. It’s an Insider article so I wasn’t sure how to link it. I just took the names and not the analysis…I hope this isn’t a breach of ITH policy.
