Scout.com national recruiting analyst Evan Daniels announced updated 2012 recruiting rankings this morning and here’s a look at how the prospects with Indiana ties landed after the update:

No. 14: Gary Harris (previously 14)
No. 15: Mitch McGary (previously 65)
No. 22: Hanner Perea (previously 16)
No. 26: Jeremy Hollowell (previously 23)
No. 36: Yogi Ferrell (previously 20)

    I think it is unfortunate for the players sake, but maybe when they get to The Assembly Hall perhaps they’ll have more incentive to whip the stuffing out of some of these other teams. I can remember hamburger and fries night at Miki-D’s, man that place got crowed.

    I agree, Ron Patterson will be a great Indiana basketball player.

    I definitely don’t think Rivals is always right. In fact, I am not a huge fan, but that is just one source that supports what btownborn said earlier.

    I think that the interest column refers to how much interest the recruit has in the school. Some of these recruiting sites aren’t always up to date with their info, though. I thought we had offered to MM, but Rivals says that we haven’t. I could be wrong though.

    Can’t tell if thats sarcasm or not…

    I believe it is……PS – It’s unfortunate that your “one game” wasn’t one of Dunham’s last two games of the season – against FW Northrop or Kokomo. One dimensional is NOT an accurate description for this guy. You should check out what opposing coaches have said about him in Indy Star, etc.

    They haven’t signed..they committed. Dunham committed las summer and Robinson awhile ago.

  • bbfan

    Yes it is…I was there too. So he didn’t drive that game…didn’t have to. Scored around 14 in 3rd q and hit field throws at end to seal the win. Ended with 26 pt. 8 for 8 from the line. Sometimes it takes more than athleticism…Patterson is good but that will only carry you so far. NOT trying to compare the two…totally different players. Patterson will do well for IU

    Pretty much in agreement eph. I think they could use a kid like this more than anything right now. But I’m not feeling warm and fuzzy unfortunately.

    The one thing we have going is I think we were in on him fairly early.

    My point is that Patterson is only 7 spots ahead of Dunham and they seem way further away to me

    He was flat out awesome in the Marion Regional. Kokomo was a far better team than PH, but Dunham just about won the game by himself at the end. Every time he shoots, the other team holds its collective breath.

    I don’t know if he will be able to take over a game like that in college, but he is an impressive player right now.

    Exactly. Whether it is bball, gathering spots, clothes or anything else when something is considered to be the ” in ” thing 16 to 18 year old males will factor that into their decision making (some more so than others) regardless of the circumstances surrounding it.

    I saw that and thought, “hmmm, I may have an early front-runner to win the MAC.”

    Ron Patterson should be drawing comparisons to Jordan Crawford.

    -Athletic 2 guard whose burner is better than people think, that’s a jump shot on the south side of Chicago for those confused

    -He’s a scorer like Crawford..not a shooter. for example. Shooter=Kyler Korver, Scorer= Derrick Rose

    -underrated prospect out of high school

    -Big reason people need to be hyped on Bus is his attitude on D. Crawford is in the NBA because he can drop 30 on you any given night…Patterson will have big scoring nights too but he will help the team and himself go to new heights because his commitment to defend the perimeter.

    Amen, he’s a priority because how many PF’s have that skill set? I’ve been begging IU to sign McGary for almost 2 years. Back when I started plugging him, nobody was recruiting him. Now, everyone’s going to be after him and it’s going to be very difficult to land him.

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Well, he is an Indiana kid (Chesterton) but he is from the “region” so I hope he doesn’t end up at MSU or PUke!!!

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Man, you must have not payed attention to all the clips recently or seen him play recently! He is huge and quick and jumps well with long arms. It’s going to be tough to block his shot because he is a load and guys bounce off him when he bodies them.

    Sure, he can handle the ball, but he doesn’t play like a PG! He is first a big man who plays the post both with his back to the basket and faced up, and then he is a great court runner with very good handles and very good passing ability in the open court! He throws some of the best bullet outlet passes I have ever seen out of a high school kid because he is unbelievably strong!

    Good news is good news . . . I’ll take it!
