IU makes the cut for Porter, Scruggs

Versatile five-star forward Michael Porter revealed his final five choices for college this week, keeping Indiana on a list that includes Washington, Missouri, Virginia and Oklahoma.

Porter is considered the No. 3 overall prospect in the 2017 recruiting class and the No. 1 small forward, according to the 247 Sports Composite. IU coach Tom Crean visited the 6-foot-9 Porter at the family’s Columbia, Mo. home last month.

Now, it appears the Porters are on the move to the Pacific Northwest.

According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, the Porters are set to move to Seattle after father Michael Sr. accepted an assistant’s job on the Huskies’ staff earlier this month. Michael Sr. spent the past three seasons as a women’s assistant at Mizzou.

So Washington appears to be the favorite to land Porter, given the list of family connections. Head coach Lorenzo Romar is Porter’s godfather, and Romar has already accepted a commitment from Porter’s younger brother, Jontay, for 2018. (more…)

IUWBB: Corsaro narrows list to IU, Michigan, UCLA

Indiana is one of three schools still in the mix for McDonald’s All-American guard Lindsey Corsaro, according to her father, Greg.

At one point, the senior from Indianapolis Roncalli was considering seven schools, including Baylor, Tennessee, Texas and Washington. She has now trimmed that list. She took an official visit to UCLA this past weekend, and will be visiting Michigan tomorrow.

Corsaro’s visit to IU is currently scheduled for next week. Corsaro, at 6-feet, is considered a five-star prospect by ESPN. The site ranks her as the No. 35 prospect in the country.

Corsaro originally committed to Kentucky, but reopened her recruitment in April after a flurry of player and coach departures from Lexington this offseason.

IU received a commitment last week from grad transfer Amber Deane, who played nine games for Dayton as a senior, averaging 15.3 points per game. Corsaro would give the Hoosiers yet another option in the backcourt, and the kind of high-impact, in-state recruit head coach Teri Moren has coveted since her arrival in August 2014.


IUWBB: Assistant Curtis Loyd leaving IU staff

Assistant Curtis Loyd is leaving Indiana’s coaching staff, according to head coach Teri Moren.

“We appreciate the contributions Curtis made to our program over the last two seasons,” Moren said in a statement. “Curtis is currently exploring other coaching opportunities and we wish him and his family well.”

Loyd joined IU’s coaching staff in May 2014, hired by former head coach Curt Miller off of Minnesota’s staff. Miller abruptly resigned in July 2014, and Loyd was appointed interim head coach. Loyd was kept as an assistant by Teri Moren when she arrived in August 2014..

Loyd is from Dallas, and his Texas connections were a big reason why the Hoosiers were able to land 2016 recruits Ria Gulley (San Antonio, Tex.) and Bre Wickware (Corinth, Tex.). While at Minnesota, Loyd helped recruit  All-Big Ten players Rachel Banham and Amanda Zahui B.

This is the second assistant coach to leave IU this offseason. Todd Starkey, who came to IU in 2014 from Division II Lenoir Rhyne, took the head coaching job at Kent State in April. Moren tabbed former Wisconsin guard and IUPUI assistant Janese Banks to fill the vacancy.
