Indiana continues to aggressively recruit for the class of 2015 and on Monday, the Hoosiers extended a scholarship offer to Owasso (Okla.) guard Shake Milton.

At 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds, Milton is unranked in the 247Composite, but put together a big spring playing for MoKan Elite in Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL).

In 16 EYBL games, Milton is averaging 11.6 points — on 50 percent shooting from the field — to go along with 5.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. Perhaps even more impressive is his assist-to-turnover rate, which is better than 2-to-1 in EYBL play.

According to his 247Sports profile, Milton also has offers from Creighton, Houston, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas A & M, Tulsa and Wake Forest.

At the final EYBL session in Eagan, Minnesota, Milton told reporters that he was being recruited the hardest by Baylor, Indiana and Oklahoma.

As a junior at Owasso, Milton was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in Oklahoma. He averaged 28.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game and shot 63 percent on 2s and 88 percent from the free throw line.

Milton led the Rams to a 21-6 record and was also a first team all-state selection.

Indiana is also recruiting Milton’s AAU teammate with MoKan Elite, Juwan Morgan, a 6-foot-9, 220 pound power forward.
