Indiana added two players from the Boo Williams AAU program over the past couple years — Troy Williams in 2013 and Robert Johnson in 2014. Thomas Bryant of Huntington Prep, a potentially transformative piece, committed this year.
In 2016, the program is looking to add a player with ties to both of those programs.
Class of 2016 Huntington Prep (W.V.) forward Miles Bridges released his final five schools at the conclusion of last week’s Peach Jam and the five-star prospect will have a hard time going wrong with any of his remaining choices.
Bridges, the No. 18 prospect in the 247Composite, is still considering Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State and North Carolina.
Indiana is among the 11 schools still in the mix for class of 2016 Roman Catholic (Pa.) point guard Tony Carr.
The 6-foot-3, 170 pound guard, the No. 64 player in the 247Composite, told CityOfBasketballLove.com that he’s still considering Penn State, Maryland, Temple, Indiana, Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Illinois, Providence, Miami, Memphis and Southern Methodist.
Vermont Academy (Vt.) guard Bruce Brown is one of the most sought after backcourt players in the class of 2016.
It’s not hard to see why, either, as the 6-foot-4 guard plays with tremendous energy and contributes in a variety of ways. Brown again showed off his versatility at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) Finals at the Peach Jam during the first July evaluation period.
NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. – Class of 2016 Bartow (Fla.) forward Tony Bradley is continuing to stockpile offers from the nation’s top programs.
His lengthly list of offers is a who’s who of college basketball and includes Kansas, North Carolina, Florida, Illinois, Connecticut, and Indiana, which offered a scholarship in May.
Indiana offered scholarships to a pair of class of 2017 point guards on Monday, according to reports. The two new offers went to Trevon Duval of St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.) and Matt Coleman who played at Maury in Norfolk, Virginia, but is transferring to Oak Hill Academy.
Duval (pictured) is a five-star prospect in the 247Composite (No. 7 overall) and Coleman is a four-star at No. 27 overall.
It didn’t take long for class of 2016 Pickerington Central (Ohio) guard Ibi Watson to get a call following the conclusion of the first July evaluation period.
Watson had just finished playing for All-Ohio Red in the Best of the South near Atlanta and was headed home when a call came in with a scholarship offer from Indiana.
