Bawa Muniru, one of two incoming Indiana basketball recruits who has yet to be cleared to play this season, has arrived in Bloomington.
He hasn’t been declared eligible by the NCAA — and there’s no timetable for when that might happen — but his guardian said Tuesday that Muniru had “done everything he needs to do to get in and play.”
Brian Privett, a teacher and coach at Madison Academy (near Huntsville, Ala.) who is Muniru’s guardian, said that Muniru flew to Louisville Monday night and was driven to town today. Since he’s not officially here for school, he won’t move into the dorms and will stay with friends of the Privett’s.
Muniru took part in pick up games with other Indiana players Tuesday. Many of those players are bound for home and a few weeks of rest, though, with the second summer session ending this week. But Muniru plans to stay in the Midwest and continue working out with players here (South grad Jordan Hulls, for instance, will still be around.)
