2016 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board

The 2016 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board is a collection of information on recruits Indiana is believed to be recruiting for its 2016 class.

Information on school lists is collected from public recruit profiles on ESPN, Rivals, Scout, 247Sports and various news outlets. School lists only denote reported interest, not offers. The board should not be considered a complete list of prospects being recruited and is not endorsed by Indiana University.

If there is a prospect we should consider adding, please drop us an email at [email protected].

  • Alan H

    Why isn’t the 2017 Commit Al Durham listed on the site on the 2017 Recruiting Board?

  • hullsfor3

    I don’t think TB leaves honestly.

  • BMusic

    Time to update the board (Alkins to Arizona).

  • John Martinek

    Hmm. Rawle Alkins to Arizona.

  • david r

    Am I missing something or are we gonna play without a point guard next year?

  • IULore

    You are, Josh Newkirk.

  • Cm

    Or a dude by the name of Robert Johnson could run 1

  • Cm

    Are there any wings available this late? Juwan, OG, Colin splitting the time at the 3/4 positions is good, but if Troy leaves we’ll have a scholarship open. and a need for depth at the 3

  • Denis

    Alpha Diallo, the brother of Kansas’s Cheick Diallo, is considering us. 6’7″, 195. Out of Denver, Co. Small Forward that is ranked 94th on ESPN Top 100. Would be a great fit if Troy leaves.

  • Ricky Hicks

    Hoosiers suck the big one , I told everybody there overrated, I just won 2k . The spread should have been 13 or 14 , and I still would have won!! I just prey they make it in next year so I can win big again! They suck in tournaments games. YEEEESSS BABY 2K ALL DAY!! LOL

  • Johnny Dong

    Any word on Thon Maker? Is IU even still persuing him?

  • Ryan Howell

    Not even a lottery pick. He would be a fool to declare. Needs another year. I feel like JBJ really killed chemistry on the team, I hope he rededicates himself to being a team player and improving his defense. We’ll see.

  • Ryan Howell

    Officially declared for the draft. I knew he was probably off the table. Would of been nice considering Thomas Bryant’s pedestrian defense.
