Stacey Poole no longer considering Indiana
This should really come as no surprise after the Victor Oladipo commitment, but Jacksonville (FL) wing Stacey Poole is no longer considering the Hoosiers. The 6-5 Poole was scheduled to take a one-day trip to Indiana next weekend.
As recently as July, Poole spoke highly of the Indiana program and assistant coach Bennie Seltzer: “It’s a big basketball school, not really a football school,” he said. “Everything’s based on basketball at Indiana. I’ve got a nice feel for Coach Seltz. He’s a real good guy.”
Poole is down to South Carolina, Clemson and Kentucky. He’s rated the No. 27 prospect in his class by Rivals.com and No. 58 by Scout.com.
A couple of other recruiting notes from the weekend:
+ Kyrie Irving tweeted the following about his in-home visit from the Hoosier staff on Sunday evening: “Indiana visit went really well…sc.” Dave Telep of Scout.com should have an update later today from Irving.
+ Moses Morgan took his official visit to Bloomington and we’ll try to catch up with Morgan later today for an update.
+ 2011 commitment Austin Etherington was in attendance for IU football’s 23-19 win over Western Michigan at Memorial Stadium.
