Yes, Hanner Perea has committed

Hanner Perea, a class of 2012 forward, has verbally committed to Indiana, multiple outlets are reporting.

He told Inside the Hall’s Zach Osterman that the driving force was coach Tom Crean.

Perea is a top-10 player nationally, according to, and the 6-foot-8 forward from Colombia recently began attending school at LaPorte LaLumiere.

Indiana and Baylor had long been the only two schools he was considering, though Baylor is under NCAA investigation for his recruitment.

UPDATE, 3:05 p.m.

Dustin Dopirak here. Just got off the phone with Perea, Mark Adams and others, and it is indeed official. (more…)

Andy Graham’s Northwestern at Indiana notes


It’s a perfect day for football here at Indiana’s Memorial Stadium, but there sure aren’t many people here to enjoy it, so far. The crowd always arrives late for noon kickoffs, but this is still a very sparse turnout at this juncture, about 15 minutes before kickoff.

Regardless of attendance, this is a huge game for both teams. Northwestern, which has won five straight road games, is one win away from bowl eligibility. The Hoosiers are in dire need of a win to generate some positive momentum for their season and to regain some of the fan support now fading, as evidenced by the empty seats today.

As always, I’ll have observations as the game progresses, after the jump.

Kates suspended for Northwestern game

Indiana junior cornerback Andre Kates has been suspended for today’s noon game against Northwestern, the program confirmed on Saturday morning.

Kates said on his Twitter account that he was suspended because of things he said on the social networking site as well as Facebook about his lack of playing time. Kates, who was named Junior College Player of the Year by one media outlet last season at ASA College in Brooklyn, has seen little playing time this season, even after starter Richard Council suffered a knee injury against Michigan. Kates has seen time in just five games and has three tackles this season.
