Worcester Academy (Mass.) and BABC forward TJ Power is a top 70 player nationally and an Indiana recruiting target in the 2023 class.

At the EYBL stop in Louisville in late May, Power spoke about his interest in the Indiana program:

Indiana offered the scholarship in early May, what’s been the communication level with them and what’s their message been to you?

“I talk to coach (Yasir) Rosemond a lot. I’ve talked to coach (Mike) Woodson once or twice. They’ve just been really consistent ever since they reached out. They offered me on the first call, so that kind of shows the excitement they have on their end. I appreciated that. And then, there are schools that talk to you and there are schools that are really proactive as far as sending dates and you can kind of tell that they’re really interested and Indiana is one of those schools which is good to see.”

Indiana has been down in the recent past, but made the NCAA tournament last year and seems to be headed in the right direction. What do you know about the program historically?

“Coach (Bob) Knight and everything that they’ve done there and the fanbase, it’s a huge basketball state, which is cool to see. And now with coach Woodson, they’re kind of revitalized, I think. He has a lot of pulls at the next level and they’re recruiting a lot of high-caliber kids. You can see there’s a lot of pull to that school right now and I’m excited to see how it grows.”

We’ve compiled more than two minutes of Power’s play from the spring, which is available below:
