2022 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board

The 2022 Indiana Basketball Recruiting Board is a collection of information on recruits that Indiana is believed to be recruiting for its 2022 class.

Information appearing on school lists is collected from public recruit profiles on ESPN, Rivals, 247Sports, social media 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].

Planned official visits for class of 2022:

Kaleb Banks – June 10
Justin Taylor – June 15-16
Kyle Filipowski – June 15-16
Jalen Hood-Schifino – June 28

Projected class size: Unknown
Last updated: June 7, 2021

CJ Gunn (Committed on February 7, 2021)

Guard, 6-5, 175 pounds, Lawrence North, Spiece Indy Heat
247Composite ranking: 4-star (104)
Twitter: CJ_Gunn22

Notes: Gunn committed to the Hoosiers earlier this year prior to Archie Miller’s dismissal and has remained in the fold following the transition to Mike Woodson. As a junior at Lawrence North, Gunn helped lead the Wildcats to a Class 4A state championship game appearance. He’s set to play for Spiece Indy Heat on the Nike EYBL circuit this summer.

Kyle Filipowski

Forward, 6-11, 230 pounds, Wilbraham and Monson Academy (Mass.), New York Renaissance
247Composite ranking: 4-star (56)
Schools: Connecticut, Duke, Indiana, Iowa, Northwestern, Ohio State, Syracuse
Twitter: kylefilipowski

Notes: Given his size and skill level, it’s not hard to see why Filipowski has become a priority recruit for the Hoosiers. This spring, the new coaching staff reaffirmed its interest in him with a scholarship offer. He’s scheduled to make an official visit to Bloomington in mid-June.

Kaleb Banks

Forward, 6-8, 215 pounds, Fayette County (Ga.), Atlanta Celtics
247Composite ranking: 4-star (92)
Schools: Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Mississippi State, South Florida, Virginia Tech, Xavier
Twitter: Kalebb_3

Notes: Banks emerged as a target following the hiring of assistant coach Yasir Rosemond and received a scholarship offer in April. He’s expected to be on campus on June 10 for an official visit. In a Q & A with Inside the Hall, Banks spoke highly of Rosemond and cited that relationship as a major reason for his interest in Indiana.

Justin Taylor

Forward, 6-6, 200 pounds, St. Anne’s-Belfield (Va.), Team Takeover
247Composite ranking: 4-star (86)
Schools: Butler, Connecticut, Georgetown, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Syracuse, Virginia Tech
Twitter: jctbball12

Notes: Taylor has been an IU recruiting target dating back to the Miller era, but his relationship with Kenya Hunter has continued to blossom and the Hoosiers have continued to recruit him since the transition to Woodson. Taylor is expected to take an official visit to Bloomington in June.

Jalen Hood-Schifino

Guard, 6-5, 210 pounds, Montverde Academy (Fla.), Team CP3
247Composite ranking: 4-star (26)
Schools: Clemson, Florida, Georgetown, Indiana, Kansas, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Wake Forest

Notes: A former Pittsburgh commit, Hood-Schifino is one of the top available combo guards in the class of 2022. In a recent interview with Eric Bossi of 247Sports, Hood-Schifino had the following to say about Indiana: “I got a great feel from Mike Woodson. As soon as he got the job, he called me, and I’ve been talking to him and coach Kenya Hunter. He has been telling me that he is ready to turn the program around and they want to get on a Zoom with me to show me campus and everything.” Hood-Schifino is expected to take his official visit to Indiana in late June.

Jalen Washington

Forward, 6-9, 210 pounds, Gary West Side, Meanstreets
247Composite ranking: 5-star (19)
Schools: Alabama, Indiana, Louisville, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Purdue, Stanford
Twitter: jalen_w13

Notes: Washington is the top in-state prospect in the class of 2022 and is a potential difference-maker in the frontcourt for the program that ultimately lands him. Indiana’s previous staff offered him a scholarship and the new staff has continued to make him a priority. He recently took an official visit to North Carolina and is expected to take other official visits this month.

Tyrell Ward

Forward, 6-7, 185 pounds, DeMatha Catholic (Md.), Team Durant
247Composite ranking: 4-star (52)
Schools: Georgia, Georgetown, Indiana, LSU, Maryland, Miami (FL), Virginia Tech, Xavier
Twitter: daraghson_

Notes: Ward plays at DeMatha, which produced former IU star Victor Oladipo. He recently named the Hoosiers in his list of top eight schools. Virginia Tech is certainly a school to watch with Ward as the Hokies just hired DeMatha coach Mike Jones as their associate head coach.

Seth Trimble

Guard, 6-3, 185 pounds, Menomonee Falls (Wisc.), Phenom University
247Composite ranking: 4-star (77)
Schools: Arizona State, Cal, Creighton, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Marquette, Michigan, North Carolina, Nebraska, USC, Wisconsin
Twitter: sethtrimble1

Notes: Indiana offered Trimble, one of the best point guards in the midwest, earlier this spring. Michigan is considered one of the top schools to beat for Trimble and a recent offer from North Carolina could also change things in his recruitment. Trimble’s brother, JP Tokoto, played for the Tar Heels.

Rodney Rice

Guard, 6-4, 185 pounds, DeMatha Catholic (Md.), Team Durant
247Composite ranking: 4-star (88)
Schools: Alabama, Connecticut, Georgetown, Indiana, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami (FL), Notre Dame, Providence, Seton Hall
Twitter: rodneyrice__

Notes: Rice held a scholarship offer from the previous coaching staff and is a high school teammate of IU target Tyrell Ward. Louisville and Alabama are also believed to be heavily involved in his recruitment. Kenya Hunter did a good job of building a relationship here, but it’s still a bit of an unknown how much of a push Indiana will make with Rice this spring and summer.

Avery Brown

Guard, 6-3, 185 pounds, Northfield Mount Hermon (N.H.), PSA Cardinals
247Composite ranking: 3-star (132)
Schools: Georgia, Indiana, Howard, Missouri, Penn State, Stanford, UMass, Yale
Twitter: _averybrown3

Notes: Brown moved from 2021 to 2022 and has had the Hoosiers high on his list for a considerable amount of time.

Julian Phillips

Forward, 6-8, 210 pounds, Blythewood (S.C.), Upward Stars
247Composite ranking: 4-star (27)
Schools: Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, LSU, Ohio State, South Carolina, Wake Forest
Twitter: ju1ianphillips

Notes: Phillips is one of the top forwards in the south and picked up a scholarship offer from the Hoosiers in late April. Phillips has already amassed over 20 scholarship offers and told Inside the Hall that he’s looking for “a school where I can come in my freshman year and play some pretty good minutes and make an impact for the team.”

Noah Clowney

Forward, 6-10, 210 pounds, Dorman (S.C.), Team Dickerson
247Composite ranking: 3-star (176)
Schools: Clemson, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Providence, Virginia Tech, Xavier
Twitter: NoahClowney

Notes: Another prospect from the south, Clowney had a prior relationship with assistant coach Yasir Rosemond and is likely to make a major jump in the rankings when they are updated. Indiana is working to get Clowney on campus for a visit this summer.

Tyler Nickel

Forward, 6-8, 215 pounds, Elkton East Rockingham (Va.), Team Loaded Virginia
247Composite ranking: 4-star (67)
Schools: Butler, Cincinnati, Clemson, Iowa, Indiana, LSU, North Carolina, Penn State, St. John’s, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, West Virginia
Twitter: abg_tnick

Notes: Nickel added a scholarship offer from Indiana last October as Kenya Hunter spearheaded his recruitment. He recently told Rivals.com that he’s looking at making a decision in September.
