Updates on a few basketball recruits…
Contrary to several Internet reports, Eric Gordon and Derrick Rose have not set up a joint visit to Bloomington this weekend, a source close to the Indiana program said.
While Indiana certainly hopes to lure Gordon, the top shooting guard in the class of 2007 according to Scout.com, and Rose, the No. 2 point guard, to town at some point, nothing has been set up for this weekend.
Gordon, who committed to Illinois but appears to be considering the Hoosiers and new coach Kelvin Sampson, and Rose are reportedly friends and wouldn’t mind playing together.
Pike High School star Jeff Teague is planning on making his college choice at a 3 p.m. press conference Friday in Indianapolis. He’s got Indiana, Wake Forest, Boston College, Xavier and Southern Illinois on his list.
Phil Jones, a 6-10, 245-pound center originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., has decided to play for Charlotte this season.
In May, the Indianapolis Star reported that Jones, who spent the 2005-06 season playing at a prep school, intended to play for Indiana this season. Jones later refuted that report and said he had not spoken to the paper.
