    Seems like a solid, if not hidden gem level, pickup. I have to say that I occasionally look at a couple of rival B10 basketball free boards (pu & ill) and neither has even a fraction of the information on recruiting as we get here and hsn - I think I usually find out more about their recruits here than I do on their boards. Bravo to all the members that scour the internet and share it with the rest of us!

    (2022) - PF Kaleb Banks to INDIANA

    Takent-wise, I think he’s got a decent chance to get minutes early. He’s a really skilled kid with the ball. He can shoot off the dribble. He can play in the mid-range. He.can get to the rim and finish with either hand. He sees plays and he’s a better facilitator than most 6’8” kids. Good rebounder, both in and out of area. But, there were 2 issues in the 3 games I was able to find of his. 1) He’s a plus kid with the ball. But, he doesn’t really know how to play without it. He doesn’t know how to use or time up screens. He doesn’t work real hard to get positional advantages. He’ll just take whatever the defender gives, so he gets worked off the block pretty easily and will put himself in some tough spots. Mostly just developmental stuff, but he needs work. 2) This would be the thing. Even by the standards of HS kids, his defensive effort and intensity are completely tied to his offense. Watched a game in which he dropped 35 and his energy and engagement on defense were fantastic. He was playing the point in their trap and with his length he was just a menace. But I also watched a game when he wasn’t making shots and his frustration was palpable and bled over into his effort. That doesn’t make him rare at all. Hopefully just some immaturity. He was an 11th grader. But it would never play in college. But, make no mistake, he has a very high ceiling.

    So...we're about to get a commitment from a four star RB who has committable offers from Alabama, Florida, and Notre Dame. It's still really hard to fathom that IUFB has this thing happening...regularly.

    Had to do a double take on this one, seeing IUFB in the top 5 with Bama, Clemson and OSU is not something I'm used to.

    This will end up being a steal after all is said and done. Good get.

    Maybe that would earn us a SEC invite :)

    I kind of like it, if I’m being honest. Only because there have been reports for a while about Coach Knight’s deteriorating health for a while, and if he’s still trolling by wearing OSU hats and Army polos there’s still some Coach Knight left.

    I respected that he didn't post anything ahead of time and just announced his commitment

    Reddish is 21 and played pretty well in the playoffs. It’s a little to early to totally write him off. Wiggins is the better player currently and was a number 1 pick but he’s got a bad contract for his production.

    I think the offer yesterday to a similar player from Montverde may have motivated it. Pure conjecture
