Indiana put out a press release Wednesday afternoon confirming the addition of Paul Bayt to the roster.

Carmel native and Park Tudor graduate Paul Bayt, a 6-4 guard, will walk on at IU after spending the first semester at Manhattan College.  He did not appear in any games for the Jaspers and must sit out one year to meet NCAA eligibility requirements.

“We are excited to have Paul at Indiana,” said IU Coach Tom Crean.  “He is a well-coached, well-rounded winner who is an outstanding representative in the classroom. Along with Yogi, Paul played an integral part winning two state championships for one of the top programs in the state of Indiana in Park Tudor. He brings some Division I experience to IU but more importantly he brings a great attitude and an ability to shoot the basketball.”

I dont get it. Is he walking on this year? Is that possible? And why do we want him? Warm bodies…

Paul Bayt’s not eligible until next year. But he can practice this year. And he’s a walk-on and is paying his own way. Doesn’t cost anything.
