Trio of Indiana targets announce finalists

Three Indiana recruiting targets announced their lists of finalists on Sunday evening and the Hoosiers remain in the running for two of them.

Shake Milton, a class of 2015 guard from Owasso (Okla.) announced IU as one of his four finalists and Terance Mann (pictured), a class of 2015 wing from the Tilton School (N.H.), has IU among six schools he’s still considering.

Milton has official visits scheduled to all four of his finalists: Oklahoma (Aug. 22-24), SMU (Sept. 5-7), Indiana (Sept. 26-28) and Illinois (Oct. 3-5). Milton’s visit to Bloomington will be on the same weekend as Juwan Morgan, his AAU teammate and friend.

Mann, meanwhile, is a new name to surface on the IU radar.

Indiana associate coach Tim Buckley watched him at the AAU Super Showcase in Louisville during the final July evaluation period and it’s believed that new assistant coach Chuck Martin has played a major role in getting the Hoosiers involved.

The 6-foot-5 Mann is rated a four-star prospect by the 247Composite and is considering Arizona State, Boston College, Florida State, Indiana, Marquette, Rhode Island.

Donovan Mitchell, one of the biggest risers of the summer, announced a final five on Sunday and the Hoosiers didn’t make the cut.

The class of 2015 Brewster Academy guard trimmed his list to 10 last week and is now down to the following five schools: Boston College, Florida State, Louisville, Providence and Villanova.

    I’m cautiously optimistic about Milton and Morgan committing together. Either way, good to see our name on these young men’s list.

    Package deals are really rare but, Milton and Morgan have publicly said they would “really like to play together”. I could be wrong but I think we are the only school that both of them have as finalists and they are visiting Bloomington together. I’d be thrilled to get both of them and I think it’d be a really strong “get” for CTC and staff.

    I wonder what the historical outcome has been for “package deals”. Most of ours, that I can remember, have been duds. Ohio State got a good package once though!

    I agree on the chances of landing both these guys. Kinda tired of just making a kids list. Time to seal the deal and these two would be a great place to start.

    See, I see that as a bust. Co-Mr. Basketballs, State Championship (might have even been 2). Edwards only stayed 2 years, had domestic violence charge pending against him when he decided to “go pro”. Jones, was a great guy but for some reason found himself in Knight’s doghouse and never could get out (Knight wanted him to transfer but he wouldn’t). I don’t believe that the 2 years they were together, we won anything… but we were competitive. Things changed when Cheney & Co. came afterwards. The only other one in recent history I remember was Jarmarcus Ellis & Andre Thomas, and we know where that ended up. I also remember a pair of guards coming in together once (Steve Hart was one of them) that nicknamed themselves “Razzle & Dazzle” before they even got here. Neither lasted a year.
