Two Ohio recruits visit IU

Indiana’s focus for the Class of 2011 and 2012 is clearly on in-state prospects, but last week, the Hoosiers branched out and brought in two players from Chillicothe High School in Ohio.

Jalen Ragland, a 6-foot-5 guard in the Class of 2011, and Malik London, a 6-8 forward in the class of 2012, came to Bloomington on Friday together for an unofficial visit. Neither has a scholarship offer from the Hoosiers yet. The visit was initially reported by and confirmed by Chillicothe coach Gary Kellough and the players themselves.

“It’s a really good school,” London said. “I didn’t realize it was that nice. Everything was up to date. Everything was nice. The team was good.”

Said Ragland: “I liked the atmosphere. It’s a basketball town. I liked that a lot.” (more…)

The skinny on Howard

KNIGHTSTOWN — Jeff Howard is a walk-on.

That’s the best description I can find for him.

The 6-foot-8 forward from Westfield, who will be an invited walkon for Indiana this season, does what you want for that role.

He is not afraid to bang in the post. He works hard on defense. He can block shots and he can rebound a bit. He struggles to get his shot off when contested, but there is a reason why he is a walkon and not a scholarship player. (more…)

Other topics of conversation from Huber Farms

Tom Crean, Bill Lynch and Fred Glass met with the media before speaking to the masses at the Indiana Tailgate Tour last night at Huber Farms Winery in Borden. Some stuff that didn’t make today’s story

Tom Crean:

On the team’s summer to date: “Busy. We’ve had a lot of unofficial visits. A lot of our players are in town and the whole team will be there after the middle of June. Camps start a week from Saturday. It’s been a great spring for recruiting. It’s been a great spring for getting out and seeing people around Indiana and talking to them and it’s been good to have our players around. Things are moving forward. We had a great semester academically. We’re in our fourth week of summer school. We’ve got our staff pretty well set, so we’re making progress.” (more…)
