It’s only been a little more than a week since our last update, but plenty has transpired in that time to dictate changes to our 2016 recruiting board. One former target – Ibi Watson – committed to Michigan and the Hoosiers have offered four additional players since our July 27 update.
In addition, several of IU’s targets have started to trim their school lists in advance of setting official visits for the fall. Check out our latest 2016 Indiana basketball recruiting board at the link below:

Two Indiana recruiting targets in the class of 2016 announced paired down school lists on Tuesday and the Hoosiers remain in the mix for both players.
Schnider Herard, a 6-foot-10 center from Prestonwood Christian in Plano, Texas, is down to 10 schools and Jaylen Fisher (pictured), a 6-foot-2 point guard from Bolton High School in Arlington, Tennessee, named his six finalists.
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.
