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 and No. 58 by

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 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.
