Class of 2014 wing Trevon Bluiett — who holds offers from Indiana, IUPUI, Purdue, Virginia and Xavier – was among several Indiana natives in attendance at the John Lucas Midwest Invitational this past weekend.

Inside the Hall was there for all four of the Park Tudor sophomore’s contests at the camp and has compiled over five minutes of video of Bluiett (wearing jersey No. 71), which is available in the embedded media player below. (Note: Expand the video to full screen by using the arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the player.)

    So HE’S the one who’s been distracting me in all the videos with those shoes.  

    Well he looks just like how everyone describes him.  Not especially pretty but just has a knack for scoring and making good basketball plays.  He looks bigger than I expected.

    + very good shooter
    + plays with Yogi
    + plays for Ed Schilling at Park Tudor who is a VERY good coach
    + goes to Park Tudor which likely means good student, good dude
    + was 6’5″ as a freshman in high school so he will likely become a large young man
    + great state finals performance means he performs well when it counts
    + plays AAU ball with James Blackman and Trey Lyles

    I can’t think of a single negative, he would be great to have at IU.  I see him similar to a Glen Rice but not that kind of a shooter yet.  His game is clever, heady…always seems to be in the right place at the right time.  He’s not going to jump over someone like Gary Harris or Hanner, and he’s not as smooth as Jeremy.  He may be the best though at understand where to be when and will have a great relationship with our starting point guard.

    I agree, you nailed the evaluation of Bluiett.  Everytime there was a scrum of loose ball he seemed to be the one to rip the ball out of it, and then make something productive happen for his team.  Just a high baskeball IQ that would feed so well off of a great point like Yogi.

    IU’s most important recruit between now and 2014. You win titles with T. Bluiett….ask Yogi.

    In a camp type of game, to pursue this many rebounds and get fouled this much shows a level of toughness you need…

    Not sure if I am as sold on the game as others.  I need to go see him play this year at Park.  I will say I became more impressed the further I got into the tape.  I know he is a good kid and for sure not a bad player by any stretch, but given the talent we will have there in 2014 my concerns are:

    + Athletic ability
    + Quickness
    + Defensive ability on the perimeter
    + Ability to create shot for himself in the half court from the perimeter
    + Scores a lot of points around the bucket here and in Park championship game, which won’t likely happen at the D1 level given his skill set and body.

    Otherwise, he is a heady player.  A good kid.  Knows the game.  Good shooter.  For sure would be a welcome addition and good role player at the least.  Just not sure how sold I am on how much upside he provides to get where we want to go.

    I could be totally wrong…need to watch more before make final judgment…
