Just corralled some info on IU’s three commitments from the weekend. My story for tomorrow’s paper follows.
It seems Indiana’s recruits are already doing some recruiting.
Chase Hoobler, a middle linebacker from Orrville (Ohio) High School and a signee for the Class of 2010, came to Saturday’s Cream vs. Crimson game with teammate Max Pirman, a hybrid rush linebacker and defensive end and a 2011 recruit.
By the end of the day, Pirman was committed to IU as well. He was one of three players to give Indiana verbal commitments for the Class of 2011 during spring game weekend, joining offensive lineman Ralston Evans from Arlington High School in Indianapolis and linebacker Kyle Kennedy from Cathedral. (more…)
Indiana now has eight commitments for the Class of 2011 and three since the spring game. The Hoosiers got a commitment from Max Pirman, a linebacker/defensive end from Orrville (Ohio) High School. He’s a teammate of Chase Hoobler, a 2010 signee. More on this later.
The Quad City Times is reporting that former Iowa signees Cody Larson and Ben Brust may not be able to accept scholarship offers from fellow Big Ten schools because of a transfer rule. This, obviously, would be a problem for Indiana. The Hoosier coaching staff visited Larson last Sunday. Larson could still join the Hoosiers, but he’d have to pay his own way. He and Brust do plan to appeal to the Big Ten according to the story.
The Hoosier Scoop crew stayed at home this weekend (Dustin and Chris for spring football; myself to spend time with family in town), but there continues to be news from a host of different tournaments across the country.
One of Tom Crean’s former charges at Marquette, Brian Wardle, is looking to hire another one of Crean’s guys now that Wardle is the head coach at Wisconsin Green Bay. The Green Bay Press Gazette is reporting that Wardle will likely hire Brian Barone, Crean’s director of operations/video coordinator, as an assistant coach.
