Juwan Morgan, Shake Milton set date for official visit to Indiana

Two of Indiana’s top recruiting targets for the class of 2015 will take official visits to campus together this fall.

Waynesville (Mo.) forward Juwan Morgan and Owasso (Okla.) guard Shake Milton will be in Bloomington the weekend of Sept 26-28, per their AAU coach with MoKan Elite, Rodney Perry.

Indiana football will be in town that weekend for a game with Maryland at Memorial Stadium. A kickoff time is to be determined.

In addition to the IU visits, both prospects also have dates for official visits to other schools.

According to Perry, the 6-foot-9 Morgan will visit Vanderbilt Aug. 28-30 and Washington on Sept. 12-14. Milton, a 6-foot-3 guard, will visit Oklahoma on Aug. 22-24, SMU on Sept. 5-7 and Illinois on Oct. 3-5.

Both players took unofficial visits to Indiana earlier in the summer and have discussed the idea of attending the same school.

“Shake and I are real close,” Morgan told Inside the Hall. “That was a great thing (that we visited together) because before we joked about going to college together and then a school like Indiana, if Indiana wants you to come play basketball for them, you don’t take that lightly. It was just cool that they are actually recruiting us both and it was just great being there with him.”

As a junior at Owasso, Milton averaged 28.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game and shot 63 percent on 2s and 88 percent from the free throw line. 

Morgan, meanwhile, was named the most improved player in Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) where he averaged 10.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game for MoKan Elite.

    I wonder how much of an advantage they would bring having played together for a bit prior to attending the same college. Can’t hurt. Pretty excited for these two to come to IU.

    Morgan twice in 5th paragraph. With such similar last names and how closely they are linked in recruiting, I’m sure it’s tough keeping the names straight.

    Hopefully, they both sign and we have that problem for the next few years.

  • Aiken_Hoosier

    I know it’s early, but it may be a good sign that they have some interest in attending the same school and Indiana (so far) is the only common school on the visit list…..

    I’d be completely satisfied with a 3 guy class of Juwan Morgan, Shake Milton, and Donovan Mitchell. Juwan I’d put at critical based on our frontline issues.

    We’re due for a package deal. I don’t remember one since Jones/Edwards.

  • hgdownunder

    That’s what I was hoping from the Movement…

  • SFHoosier

    Moye/Jeffries were also a package. Won the BigTen in both those instances so I’m definitely pulling for these two

  • HoosierfaninKY

    Say what? Moye n Jeffries package? Don’t remember that…Moye was from Atlanta and Jared was a Indiana kid.
    I would love to see Juwan, Shake and Blackmon jr but I don’t know if that’s possible. Wishful thinking

  • HoosierGrampy

    Trade you Mitchell or Milton for Kenny Williams. No cash or player to be named later, though.

  • Brklynhoosier

    Moye came to play w Newt…

  • SFHoosier

    Moye was set to go to Kansas, UConn or GT, but said he’d go to Indiana if JJ went there. Moye committed days after JJ announced for IU.

  • SFHoosier

    just google “Jefferies commits to Indiana” there is a USC recruiting article that pops up and they even make reference to the Moye connection

    Off topic from the story.. but after watching Paul George’s terrible injury last night.. the only thing I can hope for is that all our IU boys come back from Montreal 100%. Never want to see that happen to a player. And PG was making his rise into stardom. Hoping for a quick and speedy recovery for him. Going to need all IU players to be careful this year and stay healthy.

  • IUDan

    Agree completely – I’d be thrilled

  • Snookafly

    You might want to hold off on that bet until you see what our inside game looks like this year. We may be getting eaten alive without size. Morgan looks to make a solid 4, but I doubt he wants to take over at the 5.
