Things learned about Jelan Kendrick while trying to actually get a hold of Jelan Kendrick

So we know Indiana had an in-home visit with Jelan Kendrick last night, I just don’t have anybody who can go on the record and confirm it. The number someone gave me for his dad has been disconnected and his high school coach has yet to return my calls and e-mails.

Good times.

But here’s the kind of player the Hoosiers are recruiting in Kendrick. He’s 6-foot-6, 185 pounds, and though he’s listed as a small forward in recruiting circles because of his size, it’s more likely that he’ll actually end up handling the ball.


This happened too late for IU

Don’t know how I missed this earlier in the week, but an NCAA cabinet has supported a proposal to allow unlimited phone calls to recruits during a sport’s contact period.

The reason? Monitoring phone calls has become too burdensome for compliance officials.

So, yeah. All that stuff IU did to get in trouble with the NCAA? All that pain and suffering you went through? That black mark of “failure to monitor” forever etched upon the vaunted IU logo?

Student tickets sold out

Indiana made it official Friday morning, saying that all 11,000 student tickets have been sold out for Saturday’s game against Ohio State. That’s the most student tickets sold, the release said, since the 1992 season.

The release also said that there are “barely” 2,000 reserved tickets still available. The ticket office expects those to be sold out by kickoff.

Johnson, Jones and Beckum out

Indiana’s latest injury report came out Friday morning and, unsurprisingly, defensive ends Darius Johnson (shoulder) and Fred Jones (foot), and linebacker Leon Beckum (ankle) are out for Saturday’s game against Ohio State. Cornerback Donnell Jones is still listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. He did not practice Tuesday but did practice Wednesday.
