Three members of 2016 recruiting class arriving in Bloomington this week

Three members of Indiana’s five-man class of 2016 recruiting class – Curtis Jones, Devonte Green and Grant Gelon – are arriving in Bloomington this week.

The two other members of the class – De’Ron Davis and Freddie McSwain – will arrive later in the summer. Overland (Colo.) coach Danny Fisher told Inside the Hall on Tuesday that Davis will arrive on campus in early July.

McSwain told Inside the Hall on Tuesday morning that he has a math class to finish up at Neosho County Community College in Kansas and is scheduled to arrive in Bloomington on August 18.

Offseason workouts are now in their second week in Bloomington as all of Indiana’s returning players had to return to campus by the first weekend in June.

Indiana’s 2016 class is ranked 21st nationally and third in the Big Ten, according to the 247Composite.

Our new guys! #IUBB #HappyTheyAreHere ???? @ctj_curt @chefboyargreen @grant_gelon

    welcome to bloomington fellas, you’ll love it! don’t forget to check out aladdin’s castle in the college mall. it’s a great arcade, lots of rad games. oh wait, did it close down?

  • Fivelefts

    It’s too bad McFly, won’t be on campus until mid August! I hoped that he would be able to mesh with the guys more this summer. I’m sure coach gave him instructions on what to work on while in Kansas.. However.. I want that team chemistry to be stronger than granite, by Nov. Let’s hope that it is! #Hoosiers

    I can only pray that they hang out at an arcade. No off season drama this year please. If you decide to drink please do so at someones apartment. Don’t leave, if you need more alcohol make one of the student managers go get it.

  • SCHoosier

    Wow..the late arrival of DD and McFly can’t help matters much.

  • pcantidote

    And force that student manager to go to a fake first drop off point in case he was followed.

  • I’m not too worried. One of the things McFly talked about regarding committing was how well he got along with the current players. As far as I can see, this team is full of kids who should get along well.

  • TomJameson

    The difference between working on your own on the ‘instructions’ the coach gave you, and working with the coaching staff and other players on your own time, is a tremendous difference! And I think you are spot-on about the chemistry between him and the others. Pretty sure it will be okay, but time lost is never regained.

    A lot being lost there.

  • TomJameson

    At least De’Ron will be just a few weeks late, McSwain is going to miss a couple of months … the entire summer workout. Much bigger deal IMHO.

  • Koko

    It it appears McSwain needs that math class before he enrolls at IU.

  • HardRockHoosier

    I’d rather have them hanging at Cook…

  • Ole Man

    McFly will be behind for a while. Disappointment.

  • TomJameson

    I think he’ll recover quickly, maybe by the B1G season he’ll be getting up to speed. I have high hopes for McSwain!

  • E Foy McNaughton

    Agreed Tom. My son made his biggest improvements in 1/1 sessions with his coach…

    Nothing replaces that face to face instruction & expectations.

  • Bill Graham

    All of these guys have a lot of work to do. We already have 3 of the best guards in the BIG. I feel good knowing these guys will be 3-4 year players.

  • WhatsUpKnight2.0

    i’m with you, keep the momentum going! only good offseason stories!

  • Kyl470

    Lol. Sadly that might be needed. I’m not saying I approve of underage drinking, but I know this goes on at all schools not just IU. The situation last year with Holt and Bryant had that happened in say East Lansing, MI I believe the officer would have looked at two basketball players and said take your booze and throw it in that trash can over there and go home.

    In the photo Devonte does not look “short” compared to 6’4 Curtis and 6’5 Grant!

  • Outoftheloop

    Better behind in August than ineligible all season!

  • Outoftheloop

    The real need is for both team chemistry and team energy to be “stronger than granite” all the way from the beginning of the B1G to the end of the NCAA! Can you say “Iowa 2016”? They ran out of gas!

  • Jhoosier76

    Let’s hit the ground running Hoosiers.

  • John D Murphy

    More like put it in the squad car’s trunk.

  • Devonte’s Twitter handle is “chefboyargreen.” That’s hilarious. 🙂

  • I’m firmly of the opinion that the off-season antics the previous couple of years were due to some specific kids. I won’t name them, but they’re no longer at IU, and this group of kids (just like everyone remaining last season) seem like they all have good heads on their shoulders, are committed to the right things, and have strong “for IU” attitudes.
