Thomas Bryant to visit Indiana on Saturday

2015 McDonald’s All-American center Thomas Bryant will attend Indiana’s game against Michigan State on Saturday, Huntington Prep coach Arkell Bruce confirmed to Inside the Hall on Friday.

The 6-foot-10, 240-pound Bryant is rated the No. 27 prospect in the 2015 class, according to the 247Sports Composite, and is considering Indiana, Syracuse, Missouri and Kentucky as his college destinations, per Bruce.

Bryant took an official visit to Bloomington in October and has remained in touch with Indiana’s staff since then.

“I like their mindset of how they play,” Bryant told Inside the Hall in July. “They let guys do more than just one position. You can come in as one position and train at a different spot, too. You never know when you may need to play another spot or in a different position against another player.”

This past season, Bryant led Huntington Prep to a 31-2 record, averaging 17.3 points, 11.6 rebounds, 4.5 blocks and 2.5 steals per game.

In addition to being named to the McDonald’s All-American Game, Bryant also was named to the Jordan Brand Classic roster this past week.

Also joining Bryant on the visit on Saturday will be 6-foot-3 freshman guard Jon Kabongo, Bruce said. Kabongo already has an offer from Virginia Tech and averaged 6.0 points per game as the lone freshman on Huntington Prep’s roster this past season.

    Exactly. Bryant wants to start. If Marcus Lee and Dakari are still around (presume WCS, Towns and maybe Lyles are gone), Bryant would come off the bench.

  • good one, proving my point.

  • Have you had a look smart guy? Kind of shows how WRONG you can be.. you should feel as stupid as you sound right now.

    It’d be a better fan base if you didn’t call yourself one.

    What am I supposed to feel stupid about HK73? That I made a sarcastic comment regarding poor fan attendance in the Hall this season? I’m glad there was a good crowd out there today.. a’ though I didn’t get to see any of it as I was en route to Ohio to visit my fiance while she is on spring break. Crowd did seem loud through the radio in between Fisch’s play by play though.

  • Wht you were doing was knocking Indiana and the fans in general.. I know it’s pretty easy to get caught up in the crap that guys are writing on sites like this.. and pretty easy to feel like everything is going to hell in a hand basket.. When you let yourself go and make comments like that, you’re as bad as those other guys.
    Personally I am glad that it turned out as well as it did. Am I happy we lost? Definitely not. But at least the recruits got to see a good crowd, a good game, we didn’t embarrass ourselves like we did at Iowa and who knows we just may land Bryant or Thon or both after this. I think Bryant is the more likely but getting Thon as well would really be nice.

    It was a sarcastic comment critiquing previous showings.. Take it for what it is. I don’t see what I did wrong though. I am very happy it was a good crowd. I am happy we cheered hard for the team, our coach, and as a united fan base. I don’t think we get Thon. But I am pretty confident about Bryant. I believe he is ours to lose now that Syracuse has been levied some heavy scholarship sanctions.

  • Hey I understand.. I’m really glad it was a good crowd as well and not like the second coming of Iowa… I do feel better about our chances also, given the situation at Syracuse. Hey man, drive carefully.. Glad you’re getting to see your fiancée. I know what it s like being apart.. happened to me when I was finishing up school.

    Shoot i knew as soon as i posted that msg i didnt read it. Nice catch though. He made good points though and i do agree with him to an extent, i just happend to be flipping back and forth between another article on this site and clyde had posted basically the same thing numerous times. When i originally posted it i thought i was in the other comnent section. So after i posted it here i realized i probablly was going to come off looking like a tool. But like i said i agree with him to a point, just think he was blowing it a little out of porpotion.

    The Booing, they all deserve it, the only two players that have been playing is nick and troy.

    I mentioned Alford, because he is a name you see thrown around when it comes to answering the “who is going to replace Crean” question.

    However, in regards to his coaching ability, he’s certainly not awful. He made the Sweet 16 at UCLA last year (best season finish since 2008), and finished 4th in the PAC12 this year. His winning percentage is about .700 there. And Iowa fans are notoriously crazy. They haven’t won a B1G title since 1979, and haven’t made a Final Four since 1980, but they act like they are a top tier B1G program. This year’s 5th place finish is their best since Alford had them tie for 2nd in ’06.
