Kyrie Irving, the No. 27 player in the 2010 class according to, was in Bloomington for an unofficial visit on Saturday and watched IU’s 83-65 win over Northwestern State.

Irving, a 6-2 guard from St. Patrick’s in New Jersey, holds offers from the Hoosiers, Kansas, Kansas State, Memphis, Rutgers, Notre Dame, Texas A & M and Villanova.

Irving played his first two years of high school at Montclair Kimberley Academy where he averaged 26.5 points and led his team to a New Jersey Prep “B” State title as a sophomore. Irving is described as an explosive scorer and the numbers back it up — he had games of 48 and 47 points last season.

2009 signees Derek Elston and Bobby Capobianco were also in attendance.
