Spoke a little while ago with Etherington.
The big thing he said was that the idea that a scholarship may not always be there (a topic of conversation when he was first offered two months ago) did not play a role in the process.
“I know my family wanted me to stay close, so they could watch me play,” Etherington said during a phone conversation. “I know coach Crean is someone that has proven himself. Playing for him, I won’t have any doubts.
“I just knew I wanted to go to IU. I didn’t want to hold it in.”
Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean received his second commitment in the class of 2011 today from Hamilton Heights junior Austin Etherington, a 6-foot-6 wing who spent the summer playing for Indiana Elite Team Indiana 16-under.
Etherington is a late bloomer in the class, having missed all of his freshman season and all but 13 games of his sophomore season after microfracture surgery.
But what he showed during the end of his sophomore season, Indiana’s elite camp and with Team Indiana is that he is a very good outside shooter with pretty good athleticism.
Scout.com named him the No. 57 player in the class of 2011 prior to the month of July, and No. 12 among small forwards.
Etherington joins Bloomington South guard Matt Carlino in the class.
Combined with 2010 verbal commitment David Williams (Jacksonville, Fla.), Indiana coach Tom Crean has now exhausted the three scholarships he has coming available during the next two seasons (Tijan Jobe, Devan Dumes and Jeremiah Rivers). one scholarship left to give during the next two classes. Duly noted from the commenters, and corrected.
