IU football adds another recruit

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.

Report: Larson may not be able to accept a Big Ten offer

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.

Another big recruiting weekend (Chandler, Gibbs, Larson, Ferrell and Carlino)

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.

  • The big news this weekend is that Lawrence North center Michael Chandler decommitted from Louisville. Chandler told the Indianapolis Star’s Kyle Neddenriep that he wanted to look around before he signed his letter of intent. Indiana has always had trouble getting players out of Lawrence North, but Indiana will have to make a play for the 6-foot-11 Chandler. He averaged 14.5 points and 7.7 rebounds as a junior.
    Here is a video of Chandler and teammate (and Louisville commit) Ryan Taylor against Fort Wayne Luers. Chandler is playing with Spiece Indy Heat this summer (same team as Teague, Hammons and Marrero).

  • Guard Sterling Gibbs told the Louisville Courier-Journal’s Jody Demling that he loves Tom Crean and is very interested in Indiana.
    Here is a video of Gibbs with the USA Basketball Developmental Program. He’s with the New York Panthers this AAU season. UPDATE TO ADD MORE INFO: Gibbs is a 6-foot guard that is at Seton Hall Prep in New Jersey. His older brother, Ashton, averaged 15.7 points a game last season for Pitt. Florida, Pitt, Indiana, Maryland, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Rutgers and DePaul have all offered. Obviously, a large group of those schools recently went through coaching changes so those offers may still be there or may not. Three-star on both Scout and Rivals.


ScoopTalk: The Spring Game

Crean likely to lose video coordinator to Wisconsin Green-Bay

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.

IU football adds two more commitments

Indiana got two more verbal commitments at the spring game from Ralston Evans, a 6-foot-4, 265 pound offensive lineman from Arlington High School, and Kyle Kennedy, a 6-3, 200-pound linebacker from Cathedral. More on this tomorrow.

Yeguete rules out Indiana

Florida Today is reporting that Florida Air Academy forward Will Yeguete has ruled Indiana out as prospective college choice and has narrowed his options to Florida and Georgia Tech. The Hoosiers had been pursuing the 6-foot-7, 210-pounder since January.
