Illinois just landed a D3 player who will have to sit a year to play two with them. Much like Hoiberg, Illinois seems to be filling their roster with players who have long odds of ever being key contributors. His DIII stats for his year at Connecticut Wesleyan are:
 

Austin Hutcherson
Austin Hutcherson
Height: 6-6
Weight: 175
Year: Fr.
Hometown: Freehold, N.J.
High School: The Hun School
Position: G
GP 29
PTS/G 12.0
FG % 41.8
3PT % 44.3
FT % 82.6
REB/G 3.7
A/G 2.7

I’d take those 3PT and FT % from our guards...

Wow I can only imagine the angst and wailing if IU signed a transfer from D3. I'm sure this kid is a real nice ball-player and could tear it up at the YMCA summer league, but it's a  big jump to the B1G. 

Trying to find the next Duncan Robinson

The fact that Duncan Robinson was so notable is proof that there are very, very few Duncan Robinsons.

 

Very true. But watched some clips of Hutcherson and 3 things are apparent: 1) He’s exceptionally long, 2) he won’t be out of place athletically, and, 3) the kid has a great looking stroke with deep range and has good footwork shooting both off the dribble and catch. Not hard to see his appeal. Plus, since I also feel confident in saying that I’m the biggest Brad Underwood believer on this board, I expect the kid to have a nice 2 year run.

This could be big in a dominoes effect for Butler who is putting together a really nice 2020 class.

I know they aren’t B1G but Butler currently has a top 10 class for 2020. Yes they will drop but I thought I’d just throw that out there since IU plays them every other year and they are an Indiana team.

Drops our class to 3rd in the B1G and 9th in the nation. Will be interesting to see where this class lands. Still a lot of kids left to commit.

Hard to see it being better than top 20 as is. We add a Dawson Garcia and I think it’s a lock for top 10.

If we miss on him then this class seems unlikely to finish Top 30 nationally. Garcia would be a huge get as he’d get to play next season with Brunk and maybe TJD.
