    Indiana has picked up a commitment in the class of 2013 from 6-9 Luke Fischer of Germantown (Wis.) High School”

    This kid is no swingman . Not smooth, not quick, no shot . ??

  • SF

    This kid has the body and potential to be a factor in the post, but it looks like he gets a lot of his points because he is simply bigger and longer than his opponents currently.  He does seem to be a pretty good athlete.  Footwork, post moves, and a smoother jump shot are a definite must for improvement.

    This is not an encouraging video. No explosiveness, no energy. I have seen better clips of him, but even in those he looks likes he belongs at Butler, not IU. If we lose Anya or Willis because of this kid, it will be a sad thing.

  • Charlesleolus

    I don’t understand why IU is not hotly pursuing more highly-ranked bigs.  Fischer and Jurkin might be nice role players, but if/when Cody leaves early, our post play will not be too good.  Even Perea, honestly, is not too skilled yet — great athlete, but not too skilled.  I fear what happens if Cody gets injured or leaves for the NBA.  Crean has overloaded on wings, it seems to me.

  • Jking3002

    Strong passing skills. Quick shot, but not too accurate. Good rebounder, but could use work on fundamentals. Kid should bulk up and play post style PF like Tyler Hans. or could be useful as a tommy p. style backup center with high energy. Not a wing player and probably wasn’t recruited to be one.

  • Girons44

    don’t think we need this kid, but I’ll gladly take showalter if he’s still available haha

    The more updates that ITH is giving on Fischer, the more I think that he is going to be a lot more than a role player.  I am starting to see a lot of similiarities between Fischer and Zeller.  He seems to be getting bigger, has a good motor, and a very nice game on both ends of the court.  He is starting to look like a guy that can fill in Zeller’s shoes if he does leave after next season.  And if Zeller stays, he is an excellent complement to all the bigs that IU will have; Jurkin, Zeller, and Perea could all benefit with another 6’10” to 7′ guy who plays under control, passes well, and can stretch opponents defense by pulling big guys out of the paint.  He seems to have a high level of backetball intellegence and good foot work on pick and rolls, as well as a good understading of how to move the ball inside and out on offense. 

    As far as his defensive ability is concerned, just looking at the day he had today (4/28/12), he apparently recorded 11 blocks and 6 rebounds in his AAU game.

    Looks like a great profile. Thanks for posting the videos. Really interesting.

  • Kenneth Miller

    The national rating of this kid is way too low. There isn’t 100 plus high school players better than him. Disagree with me now, but make sure you tell me I’m right in the near future.
