    You don’t really have to make a case for it. It looks like Ray Kasongo might be a done deal. Tweets are flying around that he’s actually visiting us before LSU. I’m hoping he’ll make a nice rotational combo with Devin and Hanner. Let the best of these three earn the most minutes. Tim and Jeremiah could grow slowly without pressure (and Tim being used as a shooter anyway).

    The one thing I as a fan ask of CTC is not to have a soft heart like he did with JH. If a player doesn’t play ball like there’s no tomorrow, bench him.

  • No that was April. I guess I’m trying to be optimistic….but reality is getting in the way as usual.

  • ForeverIU

    Question: Can we take on Kasongo and Holt both? Not that I’d want to. I think Kasongo would be a nice addition. We have one scholly left. I’m not suggesting this could or should happen, but would redshirting a player open up another spot/scholly?

  • ForeverIU

    Who is Joe Eke?

  • funkycfunkydo

    I believe a redshirt player still counts against the scholarship limit.

  • ForeverIU

    Okay, yes, what I found is that a player on scholarship has five academic years to complete four seasons of eligibility, so essentially s/he is still using up a scholarship if redshirted.

  • ForeverIU

    Isn’t he still getting used to the right-handed shot?

  • Mr. Mitchell

    Stan the man. Finish those Free Throws.

  • Jakedipo

    And at a 58% clip… plus 1.4 steals!

  • Corey M

    I appreciate the optimism but do not see anything from this kid in the little bit of film we have on him that would give you any indication of him becoming a great player.. There is a reason we were his first D1 offer. We needed bodies. I know he is tall and can shoot but as said below he does not look like he belongs on the court with some of the athletes we have and will compete against.

  • Corey M

    The difference is Larry Bird didn’t look athletic by appearance only. Once you saw him move around you realized he had much more athleticism then anyone would ever assume! When you see TP move around on the court it…. Well, you know

  • ForeverIU

    I haven’t seen Tim in action enough to tell. But I do know that shooting probably requires a lot more athleticism than we might assume, and perhaps this is the core area he is working on right now. I’ll crack jokes about Larry Bird because he’s a proven legend, but I will refrain from jokes targeted at a freshman whose heart is totally into IU basketball and who I have no doubt will develop into a complete player.

  • HurryinHooiser

    Number 2 right?

  • ForeverIU

    Nick Zeisloft. There’s a link to the roster on the ITH top menu.

  • Snookafly

    It’s funny you mention that because I told my girlfriend: “He’s blonde, 6’10”, slow, and unathletic, but the Bird comparison ends there.” Hopefully his 3-pt. accuracy will prove me wrong.

  • Outoftheloop

    No. A redshirt is a used scholarship, 1 of 13 available.

  • Outoftheloop

    Yes, for 5 (not 4) years!

  • Outoftheloop

    And the recruit find of the decade!

  • Outoftheloop

    Larry had a 2 inch vertical. One year with our strength and conditioning program and Tim will be 6 inches at least!

  • Outoftheloop

    There is NO excuse for Stan and Devin NOT to get 20 min +/game!

  • Outoftheloop

    I keep saying that Carleton and Ottawa are as good or better than Butler.

  • Outoftheloop

    Just whom are you referring to as a “sub-par” big. Hanner improved significantly last year in very limited minutes. We know that he will be better this season and get lots of minutes, just not “how much” better he will be. We have never seen Jeremiah play yet. But there is no reason to think that he is “sub-par”, and a lot of reasons to think that he has great potential. Devin is a very good 6’7-8 SF, which in college is plenty of height when coupled with athleticism and strength, which Devin has (like Dawson at MSU)! I watched some of the USA under 17 team games. They are loaded with “bigs”, Swanigan is like the #3-4 big on the team. Yes they will be HS seniors this season, but Hanner would eat them for lunch right now (as a good college junior should do)! I hope that we do get Ray Kosango, but he will have to play his rear off to get minutes ahead of Devin!

  • Outoftheloop

    You forgot Jeremiah, who is 7’0/235. You have no reason to think that he can’t “bang down low”. We just don’t know now and won’t know until January at the earliest.

  • Outoftheloop

    When you watch Max you realize that he is 6’8-9 and very athletic, as well as a very good 3-point shooter.

  • Outoftheloop

    You know IU could play 2 of those 3 together sometimes and see if that doesn’t produce a win!

  • Outoftheloop

    He is the BEST of those 5 guards at defense right now!

  • Outoftheloop

    He goes to 15 points/game with 20 minutes on the floor and 70% FT’s!

  • Outoftheloop

    I do expect over 40%!

  • David Macer

    Carlton beat Whisky last year and took Syracuse to OT.

  • Do you remember Kaminsky’s athletic prowess when he was an 18 year old? 🙂

  • Kaminsky was rated 200+ coming out of high school. Completely unathletic, but was tall, and could shoot. Priller might be the most accurate shooter on our team. We’ll see what a few years’ strength training and experience brings to his game

  • Corey M

    No, do you? Not trying to be a prick, but I am sure it was head and shoulders above TP’s

  • No I don’t. I didn’t know Kaminsky existed until last year when he dropped 40+ before B1G play started. A look back at his high school recruiting profile shows him as a 3-star, rated 200+. Notes were that he was a great shooter, skinny, and unathletic.
