Archie Miller continues to stay busy on the recruiting trail for Indiana basketball, this time increasing his communication with 2021 in-state wing J.R. Konieczny.
In Archie Miller’s system, wing players are always welcomed with open arms and that’s what he has done with 2021 wing J.R. Konieczny. An in-state prospect, Konieczny is a name to keep an eye on as an Indiana basketball fan.
There is no secret that the Indiana high school class of 2021 is one of the best in history, because of its star power but also depth. J.R. Konieczny is ranked No. 123 nationally by 247Sports and No. 7 in the state, but has already racked up offers from Butler, Creighton, Iowa and is receiving interest from a plethora of other schools including Indiana.
Taking three visits already, all unofficial, to Indiana, Ohio State, and Butler, Konieczny spoke to 247Sports about his recruitment so far.
“It has been fun and real busy. It has been a blessing to have coaches calling and texting me, and I am just enjoying it right now.”
He loved every second of his visit to Bloomington as Archie Miller has made an increased effort at building his relationship with Konieczny.
“The visit was great. It is a special place with a lot of history, so it was fun to see everything at Indiana.”
Konieczny is a 6-foot-6 wing whose best attribute is his ability to shoot the ball. Either off catch and shoot opportunities or off the dribble, Konieczny has a quick release that makes him a difficult guard. He is getting better as a passer and overall playmaker, but still his best skill by far is his shot making ability.
He plays for 16U Indiana Elite on the Adidas Gauntlet summer circuit and South Bend’s (IN) St. Joseph’s High.
