oh my, I hope we did not accidentally stumble upon a flaw in the process.  that would be hilarious in such a very bad way.  watch next year's offers make it only halfway through the list again, this time coming from the bottom of the list alphabetically to the top, in an obvious attempt to disguise another half-@$$ effort.  too funny.

It might not be a phenomenon. We offered 28% of the players n-z over the 2 years. For the 2019's only 33% of top 100 are n-z. Seems fairly close to the actual ratio.

I’m really interested to see if IU starts taking a closer look at Pack. He’s small but he’s a fantastic scorer and just seems to be a winner

Why aren’t we recruiting Mabor Majak? From Hamilton Southeastern? He’s 7”1 and seems to be very mobile.

His composite is hovering 250. I am not a huge ranking guy outside 100 or so, but when in a year you drop 150 spots there is a reason. Especially at that size.

Never seen him play but if he were that mobile I would expect to see more rebounds and blocked shots.  He's also been foul prone in his AAU games picking up 5 fouls in 2 games and 4 in another in less than 20 minutes of action in all 3 of those games.

Because in 1 sentence you correctly hit on 2 of his 3 positives traits. He’s 7’1” and he’s mobile. He also plays hard. Really bad hands. Bad feet in traffic. High center of gravity. No developed skills. Poor defensive instincts. He has a chance to be a little better Tijuan Jobe. I would think he ends up at a midmajor on physical profile. But he would have to absolutely explode to be a high D1 prospect.

Everything I’ve seen and read about him screams project. He’d be a practice player but wouldn’t be an in game, on the court contributor.

I would say Leal, Cross, Davis, Galloway and Love would be IU’s primary targets for this cycle based on who the staff have watched and prioritized and based on mutual interest. I believe there is high interest on both sides for these top 5

Agree, I’m thinking we must have a tier 1 target big man too.

Garcia? Loveday?

Garcia probably would be considered a big man top target but I don’t see enough mutual interest to put him in the group with the other 5 yet. Maybe in time that changes but out of those 5, Cross would be the closest to a tier 1 big in my opinion. He isn’t a guard or a wing so maybe they consider him a front court player

Can we land a primary recruiting target?

Who are our tier 1 targets?

All the guys with offers already?


Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

Based on the info I have read, Cross, Leal, and Davis seem to be who the staff is going after. Love, Galloway, and Garcia are probably next. Sounding like Cross and Leal could commit this summer.

Has the staff taken a look at Hunter Dickenson C 6'11 from DeMatha?

Boring few weeks, so heres my take on what I would do if I were the staff for recruiting:

1) Get Hassan Diarra to reclassify and be RP’s backup this year
2) Hone in on Caleb Love as the crown jewel for the 2020 class
3) Secure an early commitment from Galloway / Leal
4) Prioritize Darson Garcia to be DD’s successor (Zach Loveday as option B)
5) Find a wing shooter such as Cross

I agree with all of this except Love. That one is a long shot and the staff would be better off riding a year RP and Diarra and trying to land a scoring guard besides Leal or Galloway and then going all in on Lander in 21. Love’s recruitment seems to be exploding to the point that IU doesn’t stand much of a chance right now imo.

While I agree with you, those two words mean all the difference. A tournament appearance or even a deep run can change everything. Right now Archie is unproven in Bloomington and no doubt recruits see this. But once he shows he can win (if he does), it could open the floodgates.
