    247 staff article titled: The 2021 Prospects We're Going To Bat For No. 63: Logan Duncomb, C, Committed to Indiana While I am definitely not the biggest advocate of old school traditional centers on the 247Sports team, it is easy to recognize the four-year value that Cincinnati product Logan Duncomb will have in college. More than anything, Duncomb is someone who has continually gotten better by leaps and bounds. He made a big jump from his freshman to his sophomore year, and then did it again from his sophomore to junior season. Now it is looking like Duncomb will do it again after a strong summer heading into his senior year. Given the fact that he is so well coached, has good touch, great hands, and is a physical and smart player, there is a lot to like about where Duncomb is, and where he is bound to be after a few years of college. It is very reasonable to think that Duncomb can be an all-league player and a multi-year starter before it is all said and done. While the value of a traditional center has been downgraded some, Duncomb should have significant value projecting forward to his time in the Big Ten. -- Brian Snow

Kaufman set the record straight on his acquaintance with Lander. “Khristian is a great guy,” Kaufman said. “We haven’t been on the same AAU team for the past two years and I think people kind of took that as I don’t like Khristian or Khristian doesn’t like me. It’s actually the opposite. I’ve always looked forward to playing with Khristian. He’s a great player. I remember we went to Purdue for a camp, and just the chemistry that we built there, we have a good connection.”

    This is my great Nephew with an albino Channel he caught in my pond. He's six and small but got it in all by his lonesome. Pretty happy little guy.

    I was going to pay for it, until the bill rang up to a little over $100. I'm not mad at him, I was doing the same thing at his age, heck who am I kidding I'm doing the same thing at 44 just with less people.

    (2021) - PF Mason Miller

    Exactly. And for what it’s worth, every time we get a high level player, especially one who is a really good kid, generally that INCREASES the chances of getting additional high end players. Get a Grant Gelon or Devin Dumes? No great players want to play with crud like that. Duncomb and Lander help a lot, especially since those two play the only two positions that Kaufman, Miller, and Mohammed/Wesley do NOT. So let’s get the floodgates open!

    247Sports article from Travis Branham captioned: How The Blue Bloods Can Finish Off Strong in 2021. Archie Miller is coming off a strong 2020 class landing four Top150 prospects which he can build around for the years to come. In the 2021 class, Indiana extended offers to 14 prospects and has already secured one four-star commitment from Logan Duncomb. Right now, the Hoosiers are really looking to secure a prospect at the four spot with three of the top priorities on their board being Bryce Hopkins, Trey Kaufman and Mason Miller. Indiana is also in the mix with prospects such as Blake Wesley and five-star prospect Aminu Mohammed. Indiana could have as many as six scholarships available and they will also likely be looking to bolster their roster with some experience and talent that is set to hit the transfer market next spring. If the Hoosiers land two of the guys currently on their board and then capitalize on the transfer market, then Archie Miller and his staff will very likely have another Top 20 class in the country and have a roster built to last based on the 2020 and 2021 recruiting cycles.

    (2021) - CG Hunter Sallis

    Pretty good extended highlight reel of a game Sallis played against Lincoln North Star, which has Donovan Williams, a 6’5” ‘20 kid going to Oklahoma St(and who looks every bit of 25). Looks to have a lot of Ayo Dosunmu to his game, except he’s a much more dynamic athlete. Uses a lot of change of pace to create space for himself, and once he has an advantage the defender is basically helpless. Also looks like he competes pretty hard on both ends. I want to see some full games because, though he makes 3 or 4 perimeter shots in this one, and I know nothing about his shooting stats, he has an inconsistent release point on his shot and sometimes his elbow flys. So I’m comfortable guessing streaky shooter. But he’s so explosive downhill that a bad shooting game wouldn’t negate his effectiveness. Would be a killer in any system.

    Our new Assistant Coach Kenya Hunter already earning his paycheck getting us in the door with some high profile recruits. 4-star Rodney Rice received an IU offer today. Rice transferred to DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Md. from The Bullis School, also in Maryland. DeMatha is the same high school that produced Victor Oladipo. 247 Rivals MaxPreps Hudl https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-hoosiers-offer-class-of-2022-top-70-guard-rodney-rice/?fbclid=IwAR2vNLz_v9l4oBbSQ_AnTtR3UCW_Y-DLfARILye40c-8Y6ts83d4SbcGZCk https://indiana.rivals.com/news/2022-introduction-rodney-rice?fbclid=IwAR1aOqOeU2VVYU7zW5hrmQL4ALKVG3Rg2qQiCjhCdUvsZnn7mByV3BJPwIc

    Real OG quotes postgame: On hitting the game winner - “It was cool.” On how he stayed so calm after he hit the game winner - “I don’t shoot trying to miss.” Never change OG, never change. I imagine he’ll be celebrating with some cheesecake tonight. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Would be interesting to have statistics for myocarditis in football players in particular prior to ever hearing about COVID-19. Sad fact is, there are kids putting stuff in their bodies at a young age trying to get bigger, faster and stronger than the other kids and some of it is done with the encouragement of their family and coaches. How much of that could play a role in the statistics being reported today?

    LMAO. I had to read your post twice. My initial read was that Troutman was throwing the ball up from everywhere on the court and paying little attention to what his team was doing. Does that constitute a senior moment? After I regained my senses I could fully understand what you were describing.
