Report: Indiana out of the running for Josh Selby
It appears Indiana fans will have to wait until at least the 2011-2012 season to watch the first five-star recruit of the Tom Crean era play in Bloomington.
Josh Selby, the 2010 combo guard from Baltimore who is rated the No. 10 player in the country by Scout.com, is no longer listing the Hoosiers as a possible destination.
Evan Daniels, a national recruiting analyst for Scout.com, broke the news earlier this afternoon:
“Right now we’re really considering all of the schools on a equal playing field,” Maeshon Witherspoon, Selby’s mother, told Daniels. “It’s the two that we visited and the other two that we plan to visit. I don’t think that it’s in our schedule to get back to Indiana again. I don’t think we are going to visit Syracuse.”
With Indiana and Syracuse not getting visits, Selby’s list is down to four – Arizona, Kansas, Connecticut and Kentucky.
Indiana was long believed to be a long shot to land Selby, having jumped into the race shortly after Kyrie Irving eliminated the Hoosiers from his list.
Indiana has two signees for its 2010 class — Sagemont (FL) wing Will Sheehey and DeMatha (MD) wing Victor Oladipo — and has, on paper, one scholarship remaining for next season.
