    So that leaves Isiah Thomas and Scott May for the #1 and #2 spots. Is there any chance that Scott *doesn’t* finish at the top?

  • We have made enough offers to field two teams – a cream and a crimson who could vie for the Big 10 Title. We need to leave something for Purdue or they will be stealing recruits from Prairie View A&M.

  • When the big redhead was outside the top 10, I thought no way. After reading the profiles and doing some thinking Hutchens may be right. That’s hard to believe that there has been that much talent at one program.
    Also Landon Turner is a top 20 kid. All American and NCAA winner. Would have been the Big Ten Player of the year in 1982 and a top 3 pick in the NBA draft.

    I’ve always loved the story about Bob Knight helping Landon Turner get drafted after his accident . About Troy Williams , I know Louisville has been on him hard , The radio show here has often mentioned how much Pitino likes him and his team mate . Is it me or are there so many recruits offered that it’s kinda hard to keep track of or at least decipher who might be the best fit for us ?

    TW look like he may be 40 years old. . .Putting Isiah in the top two, really, a bad coach, worst b-ball executive, and couldn’t be on the ’92 Olympic team because of his difficult personality, I don’t see him in the top 5.

  • Remy Willing and Abell

    4 of them

  • Kelin Blab

    …..but based on his Indiana talents I can see him in the top 5

  • When you have Schlundt, Dees, and Bellamy already in the top ten, Benson is a little below him when it comes to centers. Hopefully Cody is bringing back the IU tradition of dominate centers again. Read their profiles if you wonder how good they were. Schlundt and Bellamy were unbelievable. Schlundt was getting the “Hack a Shaq” almost 40 years before Shaq was born. The records he set just for free throws are amazing. I do have Isiah first with May second. I did feel Turner should be top 20, but who do you take out? IU has produced a lot of great players in its history.

    If Blackmon fully recovers then that class is already ridiculous.

  • Gregg Schmitz

    Thomas only played one year at IU. He’s not on my list at all.

  • IURob1997

    I think he’s definately top 5 but how is he higher than Calbert Cheaney? I don’t see that at all.

  • Evansville Hoosier

    Because he won a championship I presume.

  • Quality Control

    I would’nt mind us having TW, but only without the Barber Package deal! Don’t won’t Barber too much going on!!
