Yogi Ferrell on cover of Athlon Sports, Lindy’s Sports and Sporting News previews

  • 08/27/2013 7:28 am in

Indiana sophomore guard Yogi Ferrell will be on a regional cover of the 2013-2014 Athlon Sports college basketball preview that will hit newsstands around the state next month.

Ferrell, IU’s second leading returning scorer, will be joined by Butler’s Khyle Marshall and Purdue’s Terone Johnson. Ferrell is also featured on the regional covers for The Sporting News and Lindy’s Sports, which are also due out next month.

Athlon Sports, which had Indiana as its preseason No. 1 last season, predicts the Hoosiers will finish fifth in the Big Ten, but has them unranked in its preseason top 25.

Here’s what the cover will look like:


Ferrell will also be featured on a regional cover for the Lindy’s Sports college basketball preview magazine and The Sporting News preview, which are both available after the jump:

    So when do they come out?

    Hasn’t Aaron Craft completed 10 years of college already? I swear that SOB shared a backcourt with Kelvin Ransey.

    See what happens when you are a highly touted player and you go on to play for the big state school in the state you are from? See what happens when you work hard and then go to a program that is also about hard work and development? All future Indiana High School Basketball players should pay attention to this.

    B10 will have no shortage of great point guards this year….and they will have some terrific individual battles.

    What’s the latest buzz from this past weekend’s recruiting visits?

  • Rie

    Seriously, all this buildup, especially on this site, and then nothing. Feels funky.

  • MichaelV

    Settle down everybody… Johnson has been back home for not even 24 hours or so. Whitehead is still in Bloomington on his visit. Blackmon wasn’t going to commit on his visit. Kyle Guy has already said he will let the process play out. Malachi is 2015 and an ELITE prospect, I don’t think he was just going to commit before considering other schools.

    Let these guys breathe for 2 seconds! Everybody is getting all worked up when 1 day has gone by with no big news. Johnson also has an offer from UNC, would you just make the decision without even considering them? Not many bball recruits would. But yes, something REAL funky is going on here

    That is how news works these days. I think you are actually blowing these two comments way out of proportion. No one is freaking out about it, it just felt weird getting no information at all with all the buildup, and then nothingness, especially from the site that was hyping the weekend way up.

    However, everything you just said would have sufficed as a written piece and is pretty much what we wanted to know/hear. So thank you for that.

  • Like everyone else, we’re at the mercy of when people are ready or available to talk.

  • Rie

    And that is understood and we all appreciate everything you guys get to us. This is the best media outlet for IU basketball which is why we are all here. It is more odd that we haven’t heard anything from the players (besides Isaiah now). The build up was also very fan-driven, so it wasn’t a slight on ITH.

    Would rather have had Will on the cover.

  • pef

    You forgot to mention that Christian Watford’s leg will also be making an appearance on the front cover. (Bottom right of first pic.)

  • Snookafly

    Reading that top 10 makes me want to vomit.

  • PV Mike

    Lol. I remember watching him play with Jerry Lucas, Havlichek and Bobby Knight.

  • Shawn Congo

    This seems to be the year of the traditional powerhouse!

  • Andrew

    So does Sporting News actually have a preview magazine again? B/c Cody was on the cover last year but you couldn’t buy it at a newsstand or even order one online. Also I find it funny that Lindy’s pimps 350 team previews, but SN has 351…uh oh…wonder who was left off Lindy’s that made the SN cut. My guess is NJIT, the lone remaining independent. Although there are some new Southland teams that make you do a double-take (Abilene Christian? Houston Baptist? Incarnate Word?). Methinks there are about 150 too many D1 bball teams.

    1st round loss in the NIT. Maybe a good recruiting class but no way should they be pre-season #1.

  • Jerry Payne

    This is about as good as you will see on Yogi because he sure isn’t a Big Ten point guard in as much he will only get the ball to those he wants to and like last year that wasn’t the best players on the floor with him. He might get all Big Ten mention as dribbler of the year.

  • Drew

    Or maybe you’re wrong. Actually, you’re definitely wrong.
