The early signing period for college basketball began on Wednesday and two of Indiana’s three class of 2017 commitments signed their National Letters of Intent.

Three-star Berkmar (Ga.) guard Aljami “Al” Durham Jr. and four-star Adlai Stevenson (Ill.) wing Justin Smith made things official with the Hoosiers in ceremonies today. Indiana’s third commitment in the class, Hatboro-Horsham (Pa.) forward Clifton Moore, is expected to sign on Tuesday, Nov. 15.

In 16 games on the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) circuit last spring, Durham averaged 15.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game for the Southern Stampede.

As a junior at Berkmar, the 6-foot-4 Durham averaged 14.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game and shot 34 percent on 3s.

Durham is rated the No. 249 prospect nationally in the 247Composite.

Smith, a 6-foot-7 forward, averaged 17 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists for Stevenson high school as a junior.

He averaged 8.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game this past spring on the Nike EYBL circuit for the Mac Irvin Fire.

Smith, who chose the Hoosiers over Villanova back in late September, is rated the No. 75 player nationally by the 247Composite.
