Washington Post tells us stuff we didn’t know about Abraham

Steve Yanda’s blog in the Washington Post adds some detail to the Moses Abraham situation. The situation is still the same. The visit is likely coming Tuesday and it’s still between Indiana and Georgetown. But Yanda does tell us that Crean did meet with Joe Boncore on Sunday night, but not Abraham, and then met with Abraham on Tuesday. Also, part of the reason the decision didn’t come on Sunday night was Ejike Ogboaja, the Nigerian native and former Cleveland Cavaliers draft pick who discovered Abraham at a basketball camp, had his flight delayed and didn’t actually arrive in Washington D.C. until Monday afternoon. (So yeah, there was apparently no reason for us to be up that late Sunday night)

New football uniforms won’t be quite ready for spring game

About a week ago in one of our Q&A sessions, someone asked about the new football uniforms and when they might be unveiled. Pat Kraft, Indiana’s senior assistant athletic director for marketing, says IU is still in back and forth discussions with Adidas about style and feel and such, so the initial hope that the Hoosiers might wear them in the spring game on April 17 won’t happen. He said it’s possible that IU could unveil the jerseys that day, maybe putting a jersey on display somewhere, but there’s no way of outfitting the entire team by that point.

Speaking of the spring game, Kraft says IU’s marketing department plans on turning it up a notch for that. He said he’ll have a better idea of what that means specifically at around the beginning of April.

Abraham visit expected Tuesday

Moses Abraham will likely take his visit to Indiana on Tuesday, a source close to the situation said Thursday, confirming a report by

The 6-foot-9 senior forward from Nigeria, currently playing for Progressive Christian Academy in Temple Hills, Md., is also expected to play in the Kentucky Derby Festival All=Star Classic on April 10 in Louisville, Ky., the source said.

Abraham, a four-star recruit, was expected to announce his decision between Georgetown and Indiana earlier this week, but pushed it back in part to take this visit. He has also visited Georgetown, Maryland and Tennessee.
