For the first time since the conclusion of the July evaluation period, we’ve updated our 2011 Recruiting Board and as discussed frequently in the comments, the board is focused on Cody Zeller and B.J. Young. Both prospects are now rated in the top 20 of both Rivals and Scout.

We’ll be updating our 2012 Board in the coming weeks, but for now, check out the updated 2011 Board at the link below.

    Off subject: Alex you blogged ; “Continuing to hear great things about Indiana’s position with 2012 point guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell.”( Aug 28th). Can you feel us in a little on what your hearing. My research is, he might be a Kentucky lean.

  • Hoosierhillbilly

    I don’t think he even has UK listed as one of his schools, and none of the UK sights even have him on their boards as being recruited.But I do think DSR will probably go there, and maybe A.J. Hammonds as well

  • I don’t have anything else to share publicly beyond what I tweeted, but I’ve never heard anything about Yogi being a lean to Kentucky.

    Yogi doesn’t appear to be a one and done so why would he go to pUKe???

    I think CTC must be feeling pretty good about his chances of signing these guys. We know that his usual MO is to go after a wider array of players, so this narrow focus, to me, is a sign of security on his part. It also indicates that we’re all in agreement that we need big players and a point guard. Seems like a plan may be coming together. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Agreed… it’s hard to not be optimistic and excited. CTC seems to really be turning things around, and in a big way. Austin, Cody and BJ… hope it happens.

    Jeremy hollowell tweeted he might be coming to IU this weekend

    As far as I’m concerned they can have Hammons. He could be UK’s next Shagari Alleyne (or Lukasz Obrzut)

    Coach Crean recently said to a close friend of mine who is VERY close to IU hoops that Zeller is THE recruit he must get and he feels as if his future of Indiana in state recruiting depends on it. Cody is leaning toward IU at this point- or at least that is the impression the IU staff has at this point. I hope his trip to NC doesn’t go as well as his trip to B town. We need Cody to open his eyes to the bigger picture here. It is a no-brainer of a “business” decision for him I think. If he goes to IU he will ALWAYS have a future- basketball or not.

    I’m getting the feeling that Zeller is an IU lean at this point and I definitely think that he would be making the right decision to put his name in lights forever so to say, but I will say this: Chapel Hill is one of those campuses that can sway a recruit because you can easily fall in love with it. I’ve seen it and it’s a great campus! Bloomington has a great campus and IU is a beautiful, but I have to imagine that Zeller has seen a lot of Chapel Hill so his visit shouldn’t be one of those “oh my God” type moments. Sometimes that “new” campus thing can sway a recruit but in this case they’re probably both old hats to Zeller so hopefully that helps IU.

    I agree, I also saw UNC just offered another PF. I just want to get through the BJ visiting Arkansas weekend without him committing, and get him to Indiana ideally midnight madness. That GOD it is September this week….Football starts, Bill Polian can plan his “we play for the post season speech and not for 16-0” and I can count down the days to midnight madness and see a real dunk contest not won by a walk on! Looking forward to Roth, Creek, Hulls, and Will in the 3pt contest…..roth is your winner..AGAIN.

  • Sort of off subject but I saw Hollowell is visiting OSU for a football game and Evan Turner is going to be there. After Eric Gordon finishes representing the US he needs to attend a football game with some recruits. Do you guys think it is a 2 horse race now between us and OSU for hollowell? I really hope we get him.
