One of the top class of 2016 prospects from Kentucky took an unofficial visit to Indiana on Tuesday and left campus with a scholarship offer.

Eli Wright, a 6-foot-4 guard from Owensboro Apollo, picked up a scholarship yesterday during a visit with the Indiana coaching staff in Bloomington.

His guardian, Ben Moss, accompanied him on the visit.

“It was a good visit,” Wright told Inside the Hall via text message on Tuesday evening. “They have a great facility, it’s beautiful. They showed me around and I had a chance to play with the players.”

The Hoosiers join Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Purdue, UAB and Western Kentucky as the schools who have offered so far, according to Wright.

Unranked by the four major national recruiting services, Wright is ranked the No. 36 prospect overall by for the class of 2016.

Wright spent time with Tom Crean while on the visit, who explained where he sees him fitting in if he were to attend Indiana.

“They said they think I would be a great fit with my ability to defend and score in multiple ways on the floor,” he said. “They said they will be watching me in July.”
