Indiana hosted Archbishop Stepinac (N.Y.) guard Boogie Fland for an official junior year visit in June.

The Hoosier coaching staff is working to get Fland back on campus this fall for a senior-year visit, which could strengthen the program’s position in Fland’s recruitment.

While Fland officially has a list of Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, St. John’s and UConn, Rivals.com recently provided a breakdown of his recruitment and ranked the contenders.

In order, Rivals ranked the contenders for Fland as Kentucky, Indiana, Alabama, Michigan, Maryland and St. John’s.

“Multiple people in the know have referred to Indiana as the sleeper in Fland’s recruitment for some time now, but the Hoosiers have gone from “sleeper” to “serious player” in the last few weeks,” Rob Cassidy of Rivals wrote. “Fland visited Bloomington in the summer and has been a priority for the Hoosiers ever since, as head coach Mike Woodson has made multiple trips to New York to see the five-star guard. He even spoke at a coaching clinic at Fland’s high school. Woodson and company like their chances here, even if UK and Alabama might be tough to topple.”

Fland is the No. 20 player nationally in the latest 247Composite rankings and is considered a five-star prospect.

He has taken official visits to Kentucky and Alabama in recent weeks.

The Hoosiers are still in search of their first commitment in the 2024 class and remain in pursuit of Liam McNeeley, Derik Queen and Fland.

Currently, the 247Sports crystal ball has no predictions logged for Fland. The On3 recruiting prediction machine, also known as the “RPM,” has Indiana as the second most likely school to land Fland.
