Final thoughts on IU’s first game, and much more. At 11 a.m.
(You were supposed to have read that in a newscaster’s voice.)
Add Aaron Thomas to the list of 2011 prospects with an offer from Indiana.
The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard from Cincinnati (Ohio) Western Hills visited Indiana last weekend during the school’s Elite Camp.
He was not able to participate in the Elite Camp — the Ohio High Schools Athletics Association (OHSAA) restricts student-athletes from playing in camps during the month of August — but did take an unofficial visit.
The trip was a resounding success from Thomas.
“I fell in love with them,” Thomas said. (more…)
Jeremiah Davis currently holds the title, “The next player to commit to Indiana.”
Right or wrong — Davis has said repeatedly that he is very close to a decision, but never that it would be Indiana — Davis said Tuesday night that he has gotten used to the question.
“A little bit,” Davis said when I asked if he gets tired of the question. “But I understand what people are thinking.”
It does not help that Davis (a 2011 guard that Rivals.com has as the No. 40 player in the country and Scout.com has at No. 54) happens to reside in Muncie.
“Muncie is an IU town,” Davis said. “A lot of people come up to me.”
Davis said he tells anyone that asks that he is interested in Indiana, and “I love coach Crean.”
Davis was at Indiana’s Elite Camp last weekend, and said the individual instruction from Crean set the camp apart.
“I learned some things,” Davis said. “How to go off the pick and roll.” (more…)

Indiana released a revised depth chart and injury report Tuesday night that revealed a few changes.
Cornerback Donnell Jones, who was listed as questionable with a hamstring injury earlier in the week, is now out. Sophomore Chris Adkins, who had been practicing at safety, has been moved to corner. Adrian Burks will be his backup. Fifth year senior Matt Kurz is now listed as the backup strong safety.
The defensive tackle spots saw a lot of shaking up. Junior Jarrod Smith, who was not on the depth chart Friday, now has one of the starting spots. Redshirt freshman Larry Black, Jr., who was a backup, is the other starter. Redshirt freshmen Nicholas Sliger and Mick Mentzer went from starters to backups, and freshman Adam Repogle is still on the depth chart, listed as a third-stringer.
True freshman Edward Wright-Baker is listed as quarterback Ben Chappell’s backup, denoting that coach Bill Lynch may be wiling to burn his redshirt. True freshman wide receiver Duwyce Wilson is also on the depth chart as a backup wide receiver. He replaces Max Dedmond, who was shifted back to backup tight end behind Brian Zematis. Returning starter Troy Wagner is surprisingly off the depth chart.
Redshirt freshman Marc Damisch will start in place of injured left guard Justin Pagan. Redshirt freshman Chris Ahlfeld will be his backup.
