McSwain on campus, Davis expected to arrive this weekend

Indiana’s complete 2016 recruiting class is expected to arrive on campus by this weekend.

Junior Freddie McSwain, who had to complete academic work over the summer at Neosho County Community College in Kansas, arrived in Bloomington on Sunday.

Freshman De’Ron Davis is expected to arrive on campus this weekend, according to his high school coach.

“He’s almost done and has done really well,” Danny Fisher told Inside the Hall on Monday morning. “Finishes this week and is expected to be on campus August 21.”

The fall semester begins for Indiana students on Monday, August 22.

Devonte Green, Grant Gelon and Curtis Jones were in Bloomington this summer taking classes and participating in offseason workouts with strength coach Lyonel Anderson, the IU coaching staff and teammates.

Practice for the 2016-17 season officially begins on September 30.

Indiana opens the regular season on Friday, November 11 against Kansas in the Armed Forces Classic in Hawaii.

    I write for an IU football site and haven’t heard the name (but I usually don’t know of visitors until the week or two before) plus I can’t find a “William Allen” on 247 or Hudl. What position does he play and what high school? Thanks and good luck with the recruiting/visiting process!

    I could argue that we’ll miss Max more than Troy. It’s not that simple, but the stability he provided in the middle — not to mention the threat of an outside shot that forced opposing bigs out of the lane — was a big part of our success last year. If TB has anything like the foul trouble he did last year, we will be immediately reminded of how important Max was.

  • Hoosier@theLake

    You should have put this in a different post… We are pleased to have Freddie in B-Town! I’m sorry to have read this line of thought on a headline that the team is finally coming together.

  • TomJameson

    I agree Clyde, I don’t understand why the bad vibes all the time. Of course I know … “different strokes for different folks” … not everybody thinks the same way, but WOW, this team has a lot going for it.

  • TomJameson

    Yeah Bill, I have to agree with IUJeff about OG. He wasn’t really unpolished, just unnoticed. He did lack the “create on your own” aspect of his game, but that’s being worked on as a focus (along with his outside shot) this off season.

  • TomJameson

    Congratulations to William Allen!! I bet you’re one proud Father, and justifiably so. I wish the best for your son, hope he makes it big time!

  • HuntinHoosier86

    First thought that came to my mind with “super-freakishly athletic but unpolished” was HMP. Yikes!

  • Kyl470

    Same here. I think this team even with a more difficult conference schedule has a great chance to become back to back Big 10 champs.

  • Kyl470

    Yep. People talk about Jim Boeheim as one of the top 15 coaches in college and it took him 30 years to win a title and he has only won one.

  • IU Hoosiers # 34, 1979-83

    He is at strong safety. He isn’t on 247 yet because this will be his first year on varsity. He was playing varsity late last year as a sophomore.

  • bleeding crimson

    Very well stated. I was in the same boat, as many of us were the previous year.
    I don’t need to add any thing else.

  • IU Hoosiers # 34, 1979-83

    He is on hudl. Will Allen, Neuqua Valley.

  • CreamandCrimson

    Awesome…I found him on Hudl. Have fun on the 1st and good luck during the recruiting process. I imagine it is very fun, rewarding and probably somewhat stressful time for you both!

  • IU Hoosiers # 34, 1979-83

    Thanks and honestly it is really stressful. I’d love to catch up with you when we are there.

  • IU Hoosiers # 34, 1979-83

    Cream, hello again and I just wanted to post how great William Inge and Kasey Teegardin were to me and my son. The whole football staff was absolutely awesome to us during the football camp on Father’s Day. You are in great hands and we were in awe of the IU football program. Take care.

  • SilentBob

    Absolutely

    Join the forum, Bill. Best $35 you’ll ever spend. I find myself getting dragged into the mud from time to time too, but always appreciate the haven that the forum provides.

    No it was purely coaching based. Yogi, Vonleh, Troy, Hollowell, Stan, Gordon, Sheehey, Hanner… the talent was there. Being a Top 25 team was there. But Crean couldn’t pull his head out of his butt to adjust to the roster that he built.

  • Bill Graham

    We only had 4 players that were competitive on a BIG scale…Gordon, Hollowell, Hanner, and Stan were good but not Robert Johnson, Jordan Hulls, Victor Oladipo, JBJ, and O.G. good…that team lacked at least 2 more studs.

  • Bill Graham

    I’ve considered it many times. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t joined yet…I guess since it expires annually I want to find the best time-period to join.

  • Bill Graham

    Perfect example!

  • Bill Graham

    Ya but even HMP ran funny…

  • Bill Graham

    I humbly disagree. I almost always respond respectfully to people (such as now)…trolls don’t…and if you reread my post you’ll notice that I prefaced my one minor (but detailed) criticism of Wilkes with “Love his game and he’s a must get” that is hardly a trollish comment….and I believe although some disagree with me they would never consider me a troll…Tom, BL, Silentbob, Arch, Oleman, IUJeff, HuntingHoosier, and Kyl would probably all vouch for me that I have been a fairly level headed and respected member of our online community…now that doesn’t mean that I’m not wrong sometimes or a bit exaggerative…but definitely not self-righteous or trollish.

  • dwdkc

    I haven’t been keeping up with everything, but has there been any “fire Crean” kind of talk on the site here? Seems pretty positive, as it should be. But you are right, if someone is being idiotic, it’s best not to feed the troll. This is a free site and who knows what fans are showing up here.

  • dwdkc

    You’d be a good contributor there–I always recommend it simply because I think Alex does a tremendous job with this site and it’s a small way to allow him to keep doing it. And you get a lot out of it; the discussions are good in both places but less noise/signal ratio

  • dwdkc

    I think DD is such a huge “x” factor for that reason. I think it’s reasonable to expect an improved Bryant who is a beast and can stay on the floor a little better, but having an effective 2nd big is a huge thing. DD can provide things at 6’10” that Max couldn’t, especially interior D and rebounding, while I don’t expect him to bring the savvy and overall offense that Max did (others can make up for that). You are correct about Max, but DD is a big piece of what might give this team a high ceiling.

  • BL4IU

    Wow! Dad have a little extra bounce in his step? Congrats and have a blast on the 1st.

  • IU Hoosiers # 34, 1979-83

    More like,,,,stressed out!

  • Old_Time_Hoosier

    In five years:
    Four NCAA tournament apearences
    Three sweet sixteens
    Two outright Big Ten chammpionships
    One big Ten coach of the year (and should have been two)
    This is failure?

  • I am Baby Cakes

    Umm… all of that happened in the 13-14 season? I don’t remember that.
