From Indiana sports information:
CHAPPELL A CANDIDATE FOR LOWE’S SENIOR CLASS AWARD
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana fifth-year senior quarterback Ben Chappell is one of 30 candidates for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award in football. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
Chappell is IU’s third nominee in the award’s three years of existence, following finalist Austin Starr in 2008 and Jammie Kirlew in 2009. The Bloomington native also was nominated for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® and named to the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List earlier this preseason. (more…)
Indiana senior quarterback has been sharp for most of the preseason, but Tuesday’s outing was exceptional. He completed the first seven passes he threw in 7-on-7s, including passes to senior wide receiver Terrance Turner and freshman wideout Duwyce Wilson that effectively turned into touchdowns. Chappell wasn’t as good in a red zone drill that stalled, but moved the ball quickly in an 11-on-11 scrimmage later in practice.
Redshirt freshman Dusty Kiel also had a strong outing. Coaches say the battle between him and Edward Wright-Baker is still ongoing and that Wright-Baker has actually surged in recent weeks, but Kiel seemed a bit sharper on Tuesday. On his first pass in 7-on-7 drills, he hit freshman receiver Kofi Hughes on a deep sideline route for a score. He also connected with Ted Bolser on another deep seam route in 7-on-7 action and was sharp in several other in 11-on-11 scrimmages. (more…)
Former Hoosier Eric Gordon will represent Team USA at the World Championships.
Rajon Rondo withdrew from consideration, meaning the USA coaching staff did not have to make a final cut to get to 12 players.
Gordon had turned heads as a long-range shooter, something international teams rely on against packed zone defenses.
Rivals.com came out with it’s post-summer Top-150 list for the Class of 2011 shortly after Scout.com released its.
Players of Indiana interest were in mostly the same positions. However, verbally committed guard Austin Etherington did not crack the Top 150 despite a strong summer performance, especially at the Adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas.
IU target Cody Zeller saw a rise in his position, however, vaulting to No. 20 from No. 35, where he was ranked earlier this summer. St. Louis guard B.J. Young, another IU target, is now ranked No. 18 in the class.
IU guard Jeremiah Rivers younger brother Austin is the No. 1 rated player in the class. Pike point guard and Kentucky commitment Marquis Teague is ranked No. 3. Michigan State commitment Branden Dawson, from Gary’s Lew Wallace High School, is No. 13. Former IU recruit Aaron Thomas is ranked No. 49. Bloomington South point guard Darwin Davis, a Xavier commitment, is No. 120 and Jeremiah Davis, who is transferring from Muncie Central, is No. 123.
The post-summer class of 2011 ratings are out from Scout.com and its good news for some Indiana prospects.
Cody Zeller is the No. 16 prospect nationally, followed by B.J. Young at No. 17.
And Austin Etherington, who admitted he wanted to get into the top-100 rankings again, is at No. 98.
As for other prospects IU is mentioned with, Michael Chandler is at No. 67 and Naadir Tharpe is at No. 94.
