Kyrie Irving, the No. 9 player in the class of 2010 according to Rivals.com, announced the six schools he’s still considering today.
This at least gives you — and IU coaches — some context with which to frame the process ahead. In the video below, Irving once again says he’s only sure he’ll visit the those same two schools.
So, I ask you what somebody asked me in our live discussion on Thursday: How do you recruit Irving if you’re the IU staff? How do you counter Coach K — the current USA Olympic coach — and all that Duke has come to mean during Irving’s lifetime?
Part eight of a 12-part series outlining Indiana football’s opponents this season.

Sorry for the delay in posting this, but I was swamped yesterday with work related to high school football. If you’re so inclined, take a gander at a story on spread offenses I produced for today’s paper. Indiana and Bill Lynch is mentioned.
When I talked to Rivals.com analyst Jerry Meyer at the beginning of July, after the site had first released its expanded 2011 rankings, he was not very high on Matt Carlino. And he was certainly not high on Cody Zeller. Or Austin Etherington. Or Jeremiah Davis.
Well, that’s changed.
Zeller is now the No. 35 player in the country, after not being ranked at the beginning of the July evaluation period.
Davis is now No. 40, up from No. 76.
Etherington and Carlino, the two Indiana verbal commits in the class of 2011, did not make the cut a month ago. Etherington is No. 86, while Carlino is No. 122.
Among other top prospects and Indiana targets, Michael Gilchrist continues his stranglehold on No. 1, Marquis Teague is at No. 2 and Rakeem Christmas is No. 5. Marshall Plumlee is No. 41, six spots up from July, and Deng Leek is No. 139.
Talk to Hugh and I.
Make this Thursday great. Something special. Memorable.
Tim Fitzpatrick, an associate athletic director at Indiana University, has been named the athletic director at Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
Fitzpatrick came to Indiana from Army with Rick Greenspan in 2005. He became Greenspan’s top assistant and oversaw external operations of the department.
New athletic director Fred Glass reorganized the department earlier this year and put Fitzpatrick in charge of internal operations.
Fitzpatrick has wanted to run his own department and was a finalist for the open job at Rhode Island two years ago.
“I have prepared all my life to lead a Division I athletic program, and this is a great opportunity to serve a growing program in a wonderful community,” Fitzpatrick said in a new release. “Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend are great places to work and live. My family and I look forward to building a life with the Islanders.”
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi sponsors 11 Division I sports and competes in the Southland Conference.
Indiana will play Maryland, Pittsburgh and Kentucky during a 12-day span to start December, highlighting the 2009-10 men’s basketball schedule released today.
Maryland comes to Assembly Hall on Dec. 1 as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. A week later, Indiana plays Pittsburgh at Madison Square Garden in New York City as part of the Jimmy V Classic.
Four days after New York, Kentucky comes to Bloomington.
Maryland and Pittsburgh each played in the NCAA Tournament last season, while Kentucky brought in the No. 1 recruiting class in the country.
Indiana will also not play a true road contest until a Jan. 6 Big Ten game at Ohio State. (more…)
Kyrie Irving, the New Jersey point guard that has Indiana among his top schools, is the No. 9 overall prospect in the country, according to Rivals.com’s latest 2010 rankings.
Irving was previously the No. 21 overall prospect, but moved up after a strong July.
Irving will visit Indiana and Duke. He is expected to announce three more schools he will visit in the coming days.
Among other Indiana prospects, Stacey Poole is No. 27, Justin Coleman is No. 45 and Moses Morgan is No. 137.
David Williams, Indiana’s lone commit in the class of 2010, is not ranked.
