    Never looks like he is trying, too easy in HS for him. Nice stroke but it is a highlight tape.

  • marcusgresham

    I didn’t know he had an outside shot like that.
    He also seems to have Blackmon & Johnson’s emotionless demeanor.

    On an unrelated note, here’s a great read from the elder Bozich:

    Wait a minute..a turn around mid-range jump shot from the post!!. Is that even allowed in today’s game??? U don’t think THAT capability would open up some lanes for the dribble drive.?? Kid has a smooth stroke.

  • BlakeD1223

    I noticed that as well. I thought I was watching Jordan for a minute.

  • BlakeD1223

    6-9 and 220. That’s what I like to see. He can handle the ball, has a shot and has a mid range jumper….. We could use a guy like this. I’m glad he’s a Hoosier.

    He fits exactly into Crean’s system. Crean is starting to get the players he is wanting. I think it will be a change for some of us to not look at recruit rankings but I truly believe Crean is going for hard workers that fit that 6’6″-6’9″ type frame that can shoot, run, and plan out-hustle anybody. Interested in seeing his defensive skills though….

  • Ole Man

    Most sites list him at 6’7 or 6’8; but no way is he 6’9.
    But I am glad he’s a Hoosier.

  • Rushman

    Jordan…. Really???

  • WhatsUpKnight2.0

    read that article too, and for their performance thus far, especially in light of how the season started, he deserves the recognition. but i gotta add a couple things. 1) there are a lot of tough games to go, and there’s still work to do before they’re a lock in the tournament, so this article makes me a bit nervous 2) he’s absolutely done a great job with an undersized team, but he’s also the one who constructed this undersized team, frontcourt deficiencies and all (and yes, NV and LF left, but he’s whiffed on plenty of bigs the past couple years, and every major program deals with attrition). it sort of reminds me of how people would praise favre when he made a dramatic 4th quarter comeback, failing to mention it was his 4 interceptions that put them behind in the first place.

  • Kyl470

    First video I’ve watched with him knocking down 3 pointers. Although after watching this video and several others of him I wish he had gone to a prep school this year to play against better high school competition.

  • WhatsUpKnight2.0

    hulls or michael? haha!

  • INUnivHoosier

    If he didn’t miss too many of those jumpers in the unedited version, I like what he brings to the table. He’s got good size; he passed the ball in the lane; he can shoot from a stationary position and on the move.

  • BlakeD1223

    lol…. I’m referring to the fade away shot that was in the highlight. I obviously don’t think he’s the next Jordan.

  • BlakeD1223

    The camera adds a few inches.

    ITH had him listed as 6’9. I believe everything that ITH says…. everything! 🙂

  • TomJameson

    Thanks for the article Marcus, appreciate it. You know the elder Bozich mentioned that there is a rough stretch ahead, with no guarantees. He also mentioned there was no lock for the big dance. He was merely stating what to me was obvious, that CTC is getting no respect from the (ESPN) media.

  • BlakeD1223

    I agree….

    I have been saying it for a few years now that getting the top recruits doesn’t do us a whole lot of good. They are good for a year and then they are gone. If you can get a great core group like we have right now that can play together for 3-4 years then you can build the chemistry that a great team needs. Those type of teams can beat the Kentsucky’s of the world. Much like Butler did when they had their back to back runs.

    Only if we had Noah this year……. Instead he’s playing in the NBA D league. It’s a bummer.

  • TomJameson

    Yeah, I think CTC goes after who fits into his system and work ethic. Sometimes things don’t work out (reasons that have been beaten to death), but I think his recruiting classes will start to smooth out regarding positions and number of recruits. I think he would pass up on a player if the attitude wasn’t right, and he could pick up on it. Personally, my opinion only, I think that’s why we may have missed on a big or two.

  • Laffy

    Starting to get players he wants……at 7 years in?

  • Hardwood83

    Top of his hair? 6’9″. Top of head? 6’5″.

  • Hardwood83

    Definitely seems to be in the C-Wat mold. Maybe even a little more athletic.

  • BlakeD1223

    ha ha…. well played.

  • IUfanPurduePhD

    Exactly what I was thinking: a more athletic C-Wat.

  • David Macer

    I kinda agree Kyl. Can’t really gauge what kind of motor the kid has based on all the 3’s he buried. I do like that. Would have like to see how he D’s up too.

  • IUMIKE1

    Regardless of his true height I really hope we don’t have to include the words, “playing out of position” when we talk about how he is playing next year. The 4 spot looks to be where he is best suited, and even better suited to the 3 than the 5.

  • IUMIKE1

    I read that one yesterday and also thought it was a really good read.

    Where the hell is the grown up Topanga at. I know it’s not there due to lack of clicks. lol

  • SilentBob

    I had to do a double take to make sure I was watching the same player from his other highlights. Stroke still looks like it needs some work, but at least he has something. Cook Hall will do him a great deal of good. I didn’t say this earlier, because I didn’t want to offend a future Hoosier, but I didn’t really understand his recruitment at first. I liked his potential, but didn’t really know what he could really offer his first year or even two in Btown. I feel a lot more optimistic about his future contributions now, but man it’s going to be a dog fight for minutes at the forward spots next year. I know, unfortunately, that everyone can’t stay but I won’t name names and just assume they will all be back. That would mean Collin Hartman, Troy Williams, Devin Davis, Max Hoetzel, Juwan Morgan, and OG will all be battling for time. It’s safe to say Troy will get his spot back next year, whether it be the three or four, if he opts to return. So really you have 5 guys going after one spot if we don’t go with a three guard line up again, which there is no reason to believe we won’t go with a 3 guard lineup at this point either. If we add a prized big man and Emmitt gets more comfortable dribbling the ball then you can add his name to that list of guys battling too. I wonder if we will actually see a non medical red shirt get utilized next year?

  • Kyl470

    As a fan of high school basketball I hate it when kids leave their school to go to prep schools, but as a bigger fan of college basketball I think the prep schools help to better prepare you for the college game. I think Morgan will be a nice addition to next years team, but it would be nice if he were being pushed harder in high school than what it currently appears he is.

  • Rushman

    I knew what you meant, just thought i could through a joke in there

  • Rushman

    Very good read. I guess that just comes with job at IU.

  • Brian Stewart

    What a nice soft touch.

  • marcusgresham

    There’s actually a “Girl Meets World” now with the two of them grown up as the parents of a daughter. I’ve never seen it–it’s on Disney or Nickelodeon or some other children’s network, but she’s on that.

  • marcusgresham

    Yeah, I wanted Noah to be playing a second season in Indiana–just not in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

  • marcusgresham

    I think the 80% FT stat may be my favorite. Why the hell can’t guys who hit from 20 in the offense hit unguarded from 15?

  • eville87

    He looks good but I don’t see him as post player. I wonder how he will get minutes. I second what someone else said looks like a more athletic version of cwat.

  • b_side

    Noah’s been called back up. Not as if he’s spending the entire year in the D-League to get reps.

  • b_side

    Keep in mind red shirts still count as a scholarship.

  • SilentBob

    Oh I know, but if it looks like a player won’t be able to provide production, or the minutes aren’t there for them too, then why not retain a year of eligibility and allow them to make gains on there body?
