Gassion gives IU women 4th 2013 commit


Once again via the wonderful world of Twitter comes news that the Indiana women’s basketball program has secured another verbal commitment for the class of 2013.

Alexis Gassion, a 5-foot-10 guard from Fairborn, Ohio, becomes the fourth 2013 commitment for first-year IU coach Curt Miller. Gassion was honorable mention AP All-State in Ohio this past season, averaging 17.8 points per game. She is a 3-star prospect according to ESPN HoopGurlz and the No. 35 wing in the country.

Tom Jenkins of Ohio Girls Basketball Report says: “Alexis is the best big guard in Ohio in the 2013 class.”

Gassion joins 5-5 PG Larryn Brooks (Richmond, Ky.), 5-9 PG Taylor Agler (Westerville, OH) and 6-3 post Jenn Anderson (Westfield) as 2013 IU commits.

Another Buckeye product to keep an eye on is 2014’s Sydney Brackemyre, a 6-foot forward who recently visited Bloomington.

    Coach Miller is a tireless recruiter. I believe that IU can take 2 more in 2013 to get to the 15 scholarship limit. Go IU Women’s Basketball!!

    This guy appears to be able to close with confidence. He should even raise the recruiting bar a couple of more notches after 2 successful seasons.

    I am beginning to wonder if coach Miller sleeps. We have had nothing but positive results coming out of Bloomington since his arrival. By my count, coach Miller has over the next 2 years, at least 8 recruits or transfers coming to Bloomington. This guy is relentless! With his history of “coaching them up”, we are in for a bright future. Keep up the good work coach Miller.

    So, much for my comment from the last commitment of needing a wing to commit…lol

    The midwest recruiting base is showing. No offense to those on the roster, but it was concerning that Jack couldn’t get major players from the midwest. Coach Miller is not only filling needs, but using his midwest connections. While I expect the team to take their lumps during “growing pains” this year and having young players and transfers the following year, I can see in year three or four maybe getting to the post season…

    I agree with Steve. IU will not be able to compete if we have a roster full of guards < 5-10's. We need bigger POST players. Where are the POST's????

    Jenn Anderson is 6’3…that is a good size for a post…don’t get me wrong, I’d like a 6’5 post, too, but it’s very competitive for those

    In addition to Anderson at 6’3, Mousty is also 6’3, and Jakrobicek is 6’0. Hulls is 5’11 and Gassion is 5’10. Bell is 5’5, Agler is 5’8 and Brooks is 5’6. Coach Miller is covering every position. Plus, from the juniors for 2012-13 Deloach is 6’3, Taufa is 6’0 and Newbauer is 5’9; while the Sophomores add McCurty at 6’6, and Ussery at 5’8. As I said, 2 more spots are open for 2013. Let’s watch and enjoy the news!

    And to think, Coach Miller said going into recruiting, he was behind….

    So, this time next year he’ll be on schedule? What will he be like then?? lol

    Kmiller, your concern about a roster full of guards is a little short sited. Of the returning 9 players from this past year’s roster, we have: (Senior)Linda Rubene 6’3′, (redshirt senior)Sasha Chaplin 6’4″, (senior)Aulani Sinclair 6′ 1″,(senior)Georgie Jones 6’2″,(sophomore)Quaneisha McCurry 6’6″, (junior)Simone Deloach 6’3″ and (junior)Milika Taufa 6’0″. Coach Miller obviously knows that he has plenty of heighth on the roster especially with the incoming Mousty 6’3″ next year. If, with a little luck the NCAA will inable Hulls to play this upcoming season, we will be in good shape with size. The biggest issue with our team over the last few years has been the inability to score the basketball. If these new incoming guards can shoot the ball, we will be fine!!

    Good points Mike. That is why it is so important to include our 2012 “walk-on” Carmela Roeschlein of Clay City, 5’6, who averaged 19 pts/game and 40% from the 3 point line (a real Hoosier Hot-Shot).

    One small correction on returning players. Georgie Jones did not apply for a medical redshirt and is no longer listed on the roster at the official IU website.

    Also, one additional piece of info on Gassion, she averaged a conference-best 11.2 rebounds last year — the conference includes a 6-2 center who just committed to Penn State — so that’s impressive.

    This year should be fine….but the recruitment i’m concerned is with the seniors leaving after this year. I’m still having a hard time seeing what the future looks when I see recruitments coming in as < 5-10. I hope to see more bigs coming in….. GO HOOSIERS
