Crean secures visit from Abraham

Moses Abraham is pushing back his college decision so that he can take a visit to Indiana, a source close to the situation said Tuesday.

Abraham, a 6-foot-9 center originally from Nigeria but living in the Washington, D.C. area, met with Hoosiers head coach Tom Crean Tuesday evening on the first day of a week-long period during which coaches can visit recruits. He agreed to visit Bloomington in the coming weeks. He is also considering Georgetown, and has visited Tennessee and Maryland.

Roberts still very interested in Indiana

A day before he visits Florida for the Gators’ pro day, Bloomington North running back D’Angelo Roberts said Indiana remains very much in contention for his services.

Roberts has established a good relationship with the IU coaching staff, especially running backs coach Dennis Springer. He said he has noticed the strength of recent recruiting classes, but also feels like he could play early at Indiana.

The Hoosiers also play an offense similar to what he wants — a run-focused offense that will give him the ball.

It’s also close to him. Roberts said he feels a responsibility to be around for his three-year-old sister and one-year-old brother.


Abraham meeting with IU staff

East Coast recruiting guru Adam Zagoria said on his twitter account that the Indiana basketball coaching staff is meeting with Moses Abraham, and the Herald-Times has confirmed this information. Today is the first day of the contact period, so the IU staff can legally meet with him face-to-face. No new timetable on his decision is being reported at this time.

Carlino’s move to Bloomington

Chris Howell has been working on a video project recently, covering Bloomington South and its pursuit of a second-straight state championship and the state’s consecutive wins record.

South’s season has ended, but Howell is still publishing the work he had completed. The most recent was a profile of Matt Carlino, focusing on his move to Bloomington and how he became a part of the Panthers.
