The Indiana football team received its 11th verbal commitment for the class of 2010 today when Cody Evers told the coaching staff he’d like to accept its scholarship offer.
Evers is a 6-foot-4, 317-pound offensive lineman from Appleton, Wisc.
Rivals.com has not evaluated Evers, and says he had interest — but not scholarship offers — from Wisconsin, Northwestern, Miami (Ohio), Northern Illinois and Marshall.
According to Scout.com, which also has not evaluated Evers, he had interest from Marshall, Iowa, Northwestern, Southern Illinois, Eastern Illinois and Illinois State.
With her basketball eligibility up at IU, Whitney Thomas has joined the Hoosier volleyball team, IU coach Sherry Dunbar announced Friday.
The NCAA allows allows a fifth year of eligibility to play one season of a different sport.
Thomas was a volleyball standout at Bloomington North, but her sole focus was on basketball at Indiana where she became just the second women’s player in school history to score more than 1,000 points and grab more than 1,000 rebounds in her career. She’s also second on IU’s career steals list with 237.
“It’s been awhile since I’ve played competitively, but I’m ready to get back at it,” Thomas said in a news release.
Thomas graduated from IU in May, but has enrolled in graduate school and will pursue her master’s degree while playing right-side hitter for the volleyball team this fall.
The Hoosiers begin their season on August 28 at the University of Houston Tournament.
Indiana coach Felisha Legette-Jack is among the coaches in Indianapolis for the mock selection committee today and Friday.
There is a live blog here, if you want to learn more about about how the sausage is made, and see if Legette-Jack’s Hoosiers have any better luck getting in the mock field than the real one.
(Haven’t slept much this week; don’t really know what might come out.)
Hope to see you there.
In a move that he first hinted to me last week in Akron, Ohio, Dominique Ferguson is leaving Lawrence North.
What makes this story so interesting is the fact that Lawrence North coach Jack Keefer just continues to throw insults and accusations at the people around Ferguson, namely Dr. James (Doc) Dye, who runs the SYF Players organization.
When I called Keefer on June 12, the day after Ferguson was a no-show at the Indiana Seniors vs. Juniors All-Star Game in New Albany, he referred to SYF as the “mafia of the AAU” and told me I had to call Dye to find out why Ferguson was not there. Keefer said Dye was the one with a hand in Ferguson’s pocket, and knew what was going on.
Keefer was at it again Wednesday, telling Indianapolis sports talk radio host JMV that Lawrence North was better without Ferguson, that he was pulled out of classes (including at least one final) he needed to go play in AAU tournaments this spring and that Ferguson is a good kid who is being used.
Well, then. This is certainly not your father’s Indiana high school basketball.
It should be noted that while Ferguson, who rescinded his commitment to Kentucky when Billy Gillispie left, lists Indiana, Arizona, Florida, Louisville, Texas, Duke, DePaul and Tennessee among the schools interested in him, he only has offers from a few schools. Indiana is not among them.
The Big Ten Conference announced the game times and ESPN channels for the Big Ten-ACC Challenge today.
Indiana will play host to Maryland at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1. ESPN2 will have the game.
Wake Forest vs. Purdue and Michigan State vs. North Carolina get the ESPN nods for the second night of the Challenge. Virginia Tech vs. Iowa will follow the Hoosiers and Terps.
Harrison Scott, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound defensive end from New Albany, Ohio, has given a verbal commitment to join the Indiana football team’s incoming class of 2010.
He is the 10th player to do so.
More on this story as it develops.
