    Good to see so many Indiana kids on the recruiting radar screen. If we get the best kids in Indiana every year we will be a force

  • Casey

    Have we still been going after Zeller pretty hard?

  • Yes – he's one of Indiana's top priorities, if not the top priority, for 2011.

  • Diesel

    Hadn't seen the Aaron Thomas name. What do we know about him?

  • Kelin Blab

    Congrats to Broad Ripple and RP….Basil is helping him become a better player….
    + Carlino has been solid all year
    + Carlino v Teague on Friday…(errrr I feel a work related cold coming on)
    + Is it safe to assume Plumlee is not likely?
    + I have been reading some positive things about Sheehey and potentially Jurkin….

  • Don't read into the omission of Plumlee. I only post the stats I can find, which explains the absence of guys like Perea, Jurkin, Plumlee, etc.

  • IU followed him quite a bit over the summer. Here's the latest from Jody Demling:

  • GFDave

    I heard from a guy that follows IU recruiting first hand that Zeller's dad favors IU for Cody. I can't say I know it to be true and, if it is true, I can't say I know the least little bit about how much that means. So take it with a grain of salt.

  • ronb

    I would think if IU continues to improve now and next year that attracting a center would be to our advantage because plenty of playing time at the 5 would be available unless Bawa improves a lot
    over the summer. Even if he does we will need back up minutes. I don't know a lot about Zellers speed but you got to know Coach wants someone who can run the floor at every position.

  • aceman07

    I like Plumlee and really hope we go hard after him!!! Has anyone seen this AJ Hammons from Carmel? How big is he and any thoughts?

  • GFDave

    By guy that follows IU recruiting first hand, I don't mean folks like us, but somebody who professionally reports on it.

  • AndrewWilson

    He was also out a good part of the game…I know that it said foul trouble but he only played a few minutes in the second half to clear that up

  • Newms

    then why say anything . . .duuuuuhhhh!

  • GFDave

    Because most posters can manage to properly process hearsay if you tell them that's what it is ….duuuhhhhh! Because if it were double or triple sourced news reporting I would be getting paid for it and posting it somewhere else…duuuuhhhhh!

    Hammons is BIG, and long. Kid works hard, solid defensively and is developing a nice post game. 14-14-7 against pike isn't bad. The thing I like about him is he plays smart for his size and doesn't try to do too much.
