    2021 General Recruiting Thread

    I almost hate to bring it up but there is a certain name that's not on the 247 list nor does that name appear in the list of 12 just for the State of Indiana. I don't live and breathe these kinds of rankings; however, a complete omission............

    (2021) PG Khristian Lander

    Nick Baumgart - A Devin Askew announcement likely sometime very SOON. L'ville rumored favorite. If Askew picks Cards, it *could* have ramifications in Khristian Lander's recruitment. Rivals ranks Lander 13th, Askew 9th as top PGs in '21. IU, Michigan and L'ville have upcoming visits scheduled.

    (2021) SG - Blake Wesley

    Brian Snow after the release of 247's latest rankings for the '21 class - Who Has Potential To Keep Rising https://247sports.com/college/basketball/recruiting/Article/Star-potential-five-star-class-of-2021-rankings-Blake-Wesley-JerDarrion-Davison-Jordan-Hawkins-Daimion-Collins-Ernest-Ross-135772445/ In the Midwest, one prospect who has the upside to see a major jump if things come together is Wesley. Wesley is a big guard who is almost 6-foot-5, has great length, an ability to handle the basketball, and is excellent at getting to places on the court using his dribble. Seen as the No. 87 prospect in the updated rankings, Wesley has a lot of the physical tools that you would want in a top guard prospect. Now the question with Wesley is, how consistent can he get with his jumper. He already has a decent looking shooting stroke, but the results can be extremely hit or miss. If Wesley can refine the jump shot, then he has a chance to make a big move forward in the rankings. Already Wesley is the focus of an intense recruitment with offers from Notre Dame, Purdue, Indiana, Xavier, Butler, Cincinnati and others.

    IU Volleyball

    Team is off to a great start. Let's hope the wheels don't fall off. IU received 13 votes in the latest AVCA Coaches poll. Indiana hasn’t been ranked since 2010. In two weekends when Big Ten play starts, Hoosiers will play two (No. 7 Minnesota, No. 9 Wisconsin) top 10 teams to open conference play.

    IU Women's Soccer

    Great way to end non-conference play and get ready for our B1G opener next week with a 1-0 road win over Kentucky. Ladies make their first half goal stand up and hand Kentucky its first loss. For the game, IU with 8 shots; 1 on goal and 4 corners. Kentucky with 5, 1 & 4. B1G play opens next Friday afternoon in Bloomington against Iowa and then a Sunday afternoon home game against Nebraska.
