Class of 2021 shooting guard Blake Wesley has trimmed his list of college choices to 12 schools, and Indiana has made the cut.

Wesley, a senior at South Bend Riley (South Bend, Indiana) who plays AAU for Indy Heat, released his Top-12 list tonight on social media.

IU made the cut alongside Maryland, Kansas State, Creighton, Grand Canyon, Missouri, Purdue, Notre Dame, Xavier, Texas, Louisville and Ohio State.

Earlier this summer, Dylan Wallace of Inside the Hall reported Wesley was working out three to four times each day (including with sophomore IU guard Armaan Franklin) and added seven pounds to his frame during quarantine.

Listed at 6-5, 170 lbs., Wesley is rated by the 247Sports Composite as a four-star shooting guard, the 29th-best shooting guard in his class nationally and the fourth-best player in his class in the state of Indiana.

As a junior, Wesley averaged 26 points per game at South Bend Riley, the alma mater of 2017 IU recruit Damezi Anderson, now at Loyola Chicago.

Wesley’s primary recruiter on the Indiana coaching staff was former assistant coach Bruiser Flint, who recently left the program to become an assistant coach at Kentucky.

Regardless, Indiana’s inclusion among Wesley’s Top-12 schools was expected, especially since IU’s current 2021 recruiting class still only includes one commit, big man Logan Duncomb.

Wesley earned an IU offer last summer.
