One of the summer’s premier events, adidas Global Nations, wrapped up yesterday at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California and several IU recruiting targets took part in the four-day event.
Here’s a look at how several prospects being recruited by IU performed:
Four-star wing Justin Smith got his first up close look at Indiana basketball over the weekend.
The 6-foot-7, 185-pound forward from Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire (Ill.) and the Nike-sponsored Mac Irvin Fire program was in Bloomington on Sunday for an unofficial visit.
Class of 2016 Oak Hill Academy (Va.) forward Mario Kegler added an offer from Indiana on Sunday and the Hoosiers are in line for one of his official visits, according to his guardian.
Omhar Carter, Kegler’s guardian and his AAU coach for MBA Elite, told Inside the Hall on Monday afternoon that IU will receive an official visit.
Class of 2017 point guard Markus Howard, one of the top players nationally at his position, was on campus in Bloomington for an unofficial visit on Sunday.
Accompanied by his mother, Noemi and his father, Chuck, who played football for IU in the 1980s and graduated from the university, Howard said this visit felt different than others because of his father’s familiarity with the campus.
Indiana extended scholarship offers to a pair of prospects in the class of 2016 this weekend, according to reports.
Class of 2016 five-star guard Rawle Alkins has narrowed his list of schools to 10.
The 6-foot-5 Alkins tweeted on Saturday from adidas Global Nations in Long Beach (Calif.) that he’s down to Kansas, Louisville, Kentucky, North Carolina, Indiana, St. John’s, North Carolina State, Maryland, UNLV and Texas.
Class of 2016 Overland (Colo.) forward De’Ron Davis, one of Indiana’s top recruiting targets, announced his top three schools on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.
The 6-foot-9 forward, a four-star prospect, tweeted that his top three schools are Arizona, Indiana and Texas.
