Bloomington South point guard Jordan Hulls has accepted IU’s scholarship offer and will join the class of 2009.
Hulls and his family met with Crean at 5 p.m. today on the court at Assembly Hall. According to Hulls’ father, J.C., Crean was “ecstatic” about the commitment.
Hulls, a 6-footer who emerged this spring as a high major prospect due to his work organizing the attack for the loaded Indiana Elite One 17-under team, had been considering offers from IU and Purdue and was hearing from schools such as Duke and Stanford.
But as he talked to his parents — and as his parents talked to Crean — the family decided that the situation at IU was right forÂ Hulls.
“The more we talked about it, the more we liked coach Crean’s energy and his vision for the program,” J.C. Hulls said. “He wants to change the culture, and that’s something Jordan wants to be a part of.”
