2015 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board

The 2015 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board is a collection of information on recruits that Indiana is believed to be recruiting for its 2015 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.

  • HoosierGrampy

    Having just viewed Hyron Edwards’s latest Twitter post w/courtside video, I’d put him back on the “2015 Wish List” STAT. 5’10 w/serious hops (2-handed jam in the video),goes from 0 to 100 in 3 dribbles while maintaining outstanding court vision, gets the rock to teammates timely and puts them in position to shoot in stride, uses BOTH hands well. At the risk of being called a name or two, he’s at least as good as Ferrell right now in the open court. In the vernacular, “Dude got skilz”.

  • HoosierGrampy

    Daniel Giddens is now a Suckeye commit. I so wish he were coming to B’town instead of Columbus. Happy Birthday to him at any rate.

  • IUBizmark

    RIP Spalding…

  • CreamandCrimson

    Thanks for the update, great work as always…I think Dean Wade is 6’8″, not 6’2″.

  • Cm

    I don’t think Caleb Swanigan and PJ Dozier are twins, need to update Swanigans photo

  • Kyl470

    I’ve often criticized CTC, but I won’t criticize the ITH staff. You guys do a great job of keeping us die hard fans informed.

  • Kyl470

    I’d also like to hear Swanigan talk about IU more. He fills a definite need for the team and is the highest ranked prospect in the state.

  • Kyl470

    Blackmon is a shooting guard.
