Surrounded by coaches, family and friends, Victor Oladipo will sign a Letter of Intent with Indiana at 3 pm today in the library at DeMatha High School in Hyattsville (MD). He is the only player expected to sign with the Hoosiers on the first day of the early signing period, which ends on November 18.

Oladipo, who committed to IU following a visit in early September, is excited to begin the next chapter of his basketball career in Bloomington.

“I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest,” Oladipo told Inside the Hall. “I’m looking forward to playing with my future teammates and doing well this season with DeMatha as well.”

The 6-5 wing followed up his early September visit with a trip to Hoosier Hysteria in October to watch Indiana kick off its season. And he could return to Bloomington to take in a game this season if his schedule with DeMatha allows.

“It was fun,” Oladipo said of Hoosier Hysteria. “I’m looking forward to going back up there again and spending time with my teammates and the fans. I’m going to get both schedules and compare both of them and see if I can get out there for a game.”
