IU soccer schedule released

The IU soccer team announced the 2011 fall schedule today, with the season opening earlier than ever thanks to a change in scheduling approved by the NCAA.

The Hoosiers will open up at Notre Dame on Aug. 17, a week before the traditional IU Classic opener. In the classic home opener Sept. 2, Indiana will face regional rival St. Louis, followed by a Sunday meeting with Dayton.

All told, the Hoosiers will have eight home matches and nine total matches against teams that made the 2010 NCAA Tournament. Read the complete release and view the schedule here.

Devin Davis, Collin Hartman do not make’s top 50 released a top-50 for the class of 2013 today and neither of Indiana’s two commits made the cut.

Both are three-star prospects according to Scout.

Hartman is still No. 22 on’s Super 25.

Your Indiana-focused adidas May Classic schedule

The adidas May Classic organizers just released the schedule for this weekend’s tournament and it is, as always, a full field.

The best part? Super pools in 17U and 15U. What does that mean? No 30-point blowouts, with the top teams playing each other on Friday and into the afternoon on Saturday.

Just like last year, I’ve worked up a schedule if you’re completely focused on watching the Indiana commits and prospects. Here it is.

I’ll update it if need be, and the page will reflect it.

IU no longer in Lunardi’s bracket

Remember earlier this month when ESPN’s Joe Lunardi listed Indiana as one of its last four in? Well, the Hoosiers are out now, and not only that, they aren’t even one of the last eight out.

Now, we know this brings up a lot of questions. What could Indiana have possible done in April and early May to fall out of Lunardi’s good graces? What could other teams have done to better their standing? Why did Lunardi feel the need to post a bracket projection the first week of May anyway?

Of course, we don’t have the answers to any of these questions, but we figure we’d share it with you anyway.

Makanjuola off the market

Yemi Makanjuola, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound forward from Word of God Academy in Raleigh, N.C., who had taken a visit to Indiana, committed to Tennessee on Tuesday.

Makanjuola is the second big man IU has targeted to commit elsewhere since Sunday. Ibrahima Djimde, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound from Huntington (W.Va.) Prep who had scheduled a visit to Indiana for May 13-15, signed with Illinois on Monday.

The Hoosiers are currently at their scholarship limit for 2011, but they are allowed an oversign by Big Ten rules and they have been in the market for a big man. Whether they will continue to pursue one for this year is uncertain.

Zeigler’s Coach: The Sky’s The Limit

I spoke to Rashard Reeves, the head coach at Detroit Community High School earlier today about Bo Zeigler, a 2013 wing who told us this weekend that he has an offer from Indiana. An excerpt from my story in tomorrow’s paper, which also includes more info on Jalen James, follows.

Indiana may be running out of room for guards and wings for the next two seasons, but the Hoosiers are apparently still looking for perimeter help for 2013 and beyond.
Byron “Bo” Zeigler, a sophomore wing from Detroit Community High School, told reporters at the Run N’ Slam Tournament at Fort Wayne’s Spiece Fieldhouse last weekend that he recently received a scholarship offer from Indiana and was hoping to set up a visit sometime in June.
“They came and watched me workout and they told me they had a lot of interest in me,” said Zeigler, whose highly-recruited cousin Trey led Central Michigan in scoring as a freshman this season. “… They just told me when I come in, I can play.”
It won’t be easy for the Hoosiers to lure Zeigler out of his home state. Michigan and Michigan State have both extended offers as well as Iowa State, but Detroit Community Coach Rashard Reeves said Zeigler’s interest in IU is legitimate. (more…)
