Indiana University-signee Matt Roth was spending his Tuesday evening watching his high school baseball team play when he found out who the next coach at Indiana will be.
â€œTom Crean to IU,â€ a text message from a friend read.
Roth, who committed to Kelvin Sampson in November but said after the former IU coachâ€™s dismissal he would sit down with his parents and make a final decision, was thrilled at Indianaâ€™s hire and said he remains â€œ100 percent a Hoosier.â€
â€œI was excited right away when I heard,â€ he said. â€œHe had a great program at Marquette and has gained a lot of respect in the college basketball world. Heâ€™s also had a lot of great shooters to come along through there which is definitely a positive.â€
Roth, a 6-3 sharpshooter from Washington, Ill., says heâ€™s excited to talk with his future coach whenever that may be.
Calls to other IU recruits Devin Ebanks, Terrell Holloway and Tom Pritchard went unreturned. We’ll keep you updated on them.
