McGee done at Auburn

Former Indiana forward Brandon McGee has been dismissed from the team at Auburn, according to this Rivals.com report.

No reason was given. The 6-foot-7 forward from Chicago played one season for the Hoosiers before joining the rest of his freshman class in the exodus that followed Kelvin Sampson’s departure and Tom Crean’s hiring. McGee actually stayed through the spring semester and was one of two players who remained on the roster. He was dismissed, though, for violation of team rules in late May, 2008. Jordan Crawford — He Who Dunked On LeBron — left the team not long after.


Bawa arrives in Bloomington

Bawa Muniru, one of two incoming Indiana basketball recruits who has yet to be cleared to play this season, has arrived in Bloomington.

He hasn’t been declared eligible by the NCAA — and there’s no timetable for when that might happen — but his guardian said Tuesday that Muniru had “done everything he needs to do to get in and play.”

Brian Privett, a teacher and coach at Madison Academy (near Huntsville, Ala.) who is Muniru’s guardian, said that Muniru flew to Louisville Monday night and was driven to town today. Since he’s not officially here for school, he won’t move into the dorms and will stay with friends of the Privett’s.

Muniru took part in pick up games with other Indiana players Tuesday. Many of those players are bound for home and a few weeks of rest, though, with the second summer session ending this week. But Muniru plans to stay in the Midwest and continue working out with players here (South grad Jordan Hulls, for instance, will still be around.)

Fall classes begin on Aug. 31.


Irving will visit Indiana

Top 2010 target Kyrie Irving will take at least two official visits during the coming months, to Indiana and Duke.

Scout.com’s Dave Telep (subscription required) has the scoop.

Indiana put on the full-court press for the point guard out of New Jersey during July,  often sending two or three coaches to his games.

Irving took an unofficial visit to Indiana in May, when his AAU team played in the Adidas May Classic. He spoke very well of Indiana after that visit, and some thought a commitment was coming.

Irving backed off that talk when I saw in early July, at the LeBron James Skills Academy in Akron, Ohio.

“They’re the same as every other school,” Irving said. “I listed them as my favorite, but I think it was kind of early. Everybody is just balanced.”

He did say at that time that he would not be afraid to commit during an official visit. (more…)


It’s almost time to actually play football

Say you’re a 9th grader. A 140-pound dude who decided football might be fun.

Your coach can make you practice twice on the very first day of practice.

Say you’re a 22-year-old 5th year senior at a Division I school who weighs 220-pounds and has five percent body fat.

Your coach can’t make you practice twice on the first day of practice. Even though you probably want to. And maybe even need to if you’re going to reach your peak performance.

Such is the situation due to the NCAA “acclimation period,” which mandates that football teams essentially build up to two-a-days and full-contact hitting.

Press release says Christmas looking at Indiana

Rakeem Christmas, one of the better prospects in the class of 2011, announced today that he has trimmed his list to eight schools.

He did so via press release.

His high school coach Kevin Givens of Academy of the New Church in Bryn Athyn (Penn.) sent out the release:

Rakeem Christmas has had a long summer of outstanding performances at the most coveted basketball events. With the AAU basketball season drawing to a close, the nation’s “best defensive player” has garnered attention while playing for Team Final and also participating in individual camps including NBA Players Top 100, Rumble in the Bronx, Amar’e Stoudemire & Lebron James Skill Camps, Nike’s Peach Jam, Super Showcase and most recently Adidas Nations Global, in which he played for USA’s 2011 Team coached by Frank Johnson. Before wrapping up his summer events next week at Boost Mobile Elite 24 game at Rucker Park in New York, the rising junior and his family decided on the schools he plans on looking closely at for options of attendance in 2011. “It’s been a process, one that we wanted to make sure that the best choices were made for Rakeem,” said Amira Hamid, Christmas’ aunt and legal guardian. “He has been receiving scholarship offers since the 8th grade. With such an overwhelming number of schools interested in him, it was important that we did our due diligence with finalizing this list.” The universities that make up this list include: Baylor University, University of Florida, Georgetown University, Indiana University, Ohio State University, University of Oklahoma, University of Texas and Villanova University. “I appreciate the interest that many coaches have in me but these are the schools that my family and I think would be a good fit for me” Rakeem stated. “My family and I are thankful to everyone that has offered me a scholarship and participated in my recruiting. I’m looking forward to my season at ANC and playing for Coach Givens. I’ve played with some of the players during the summer and I had a good time. After summer is over I want to make sure that I do well and improve in class and on the court.”
