Rivers has NOT committed to Indiana (yet)

17 comments by   |   Saturday, May 10, 2008 - 11:31 am EDT

A report in today’s Washington Times stating that Jeremiah Rivers has decided to transfer from Georgetown to Indiana is not correct, sources close to the situation told The Herald-Times today.

Rivers is still in beginning stages of the process and has yet to take visits to some of the schools he is considering.

We can be choosers when we have 1 spot left after Sutton committs and we have 100 guys that want the spot.

Ummm can someone explain why, if he was photographed at the Adidas classic with an IU sweatshirt on, how he is now going to visit other schools.

Seems like to me the writing is on the wall, or on the shirt in this case.

We don’t need this guy, we need a 6’8” PF that can rebound, block shots, and score lots of points. I think if Coach looked at his roster, he’d realize this.

Who says he would be given a scholarship? Seems like his family would have no problem paying tuition on their own. This only makes sense if we don’t have to waste a scholarship to get him. It’s never a bad thing to have backup point guards so if he decides to joint the program without receiving a scholarship I’m all for it.

I am with Bam. As I posted earlier, I think Rivers would make a great preferred walk-on with year to year scholarship (if available) as I think his family wouldn’t have an issue affording tuition. He would provide some great depth defensively and at the point which everyone says are his strengths. (Not to mention this would make up for loosing Ewing Jr. to the Hoyas :D)

Justin and Bam, you guys are nuts. Rivers was a top 100 recruit at the least when in high school and while he did not pan out offensively, he is one of the top defensive guards in the nation. Schools do not decide to give scholarships to Bball players based on there need. Just because his family can afford it, Rivers will still get a scholarship, whether at IU or elsewhere.

I have told you all this, Will you all be happy with Crean’s style of offense? It sucks. My ultimate question. Who will we hire to replace Crean in 2.5 years? Who will it be?

Georgetown fan here: whether or not Rivers gets a scholarship, since he was on scholarship at Georgetown, he will count against IU’s “limit.” We had the same discussion when Patrick Ewing, Jr transferred from IU to Georgetown. Hopefully, for you guys, this move works out as well for IU as PE2′s transfer did for Georgetown.

Offense now adays is just making the play so as far as Coach Creans offense not being good is absurd.Hopefully, we have athletic people that hustle,get rebounds,and play tenacious defense, and Make Plays.
