    (2021) PF Trey Kaufman

    Nice video from, I assume, this weekend. Physically, he looks great. Skill level is obviously what makes him what he is. I think the athleticism is only gonna get so good, but he’ll be able to defend 4’s straight up. Not sure how switchable he’ll be. But a highly skilled stretch 4 like that playing PnR with a kid like Lander is pretty much the core of any game plan. Add a big time wing scorer and that becomes a really dangerous team.

    TV Series Thread

    Watched a documentary on Netflix this weekend about the 1966 LeMans race called The 24 Hour War. Fantastic. If you’re in to road racing I would call it a borderline must watch.

    Steve Bouchie - RIP

    Mike Schumann noted that Bouchie is 1 of only 4 men to win Indiana Mr Basketball and a NC at IU, along with Benson, Tolbert and Alford. Nice company.
  4. You describe the track spot on, though I’ll be pretty surprised if TJD plays a 3rd year. Would be happy to be wrong. I think that’s why missing on Garcia was such a shame. Would have been a great complimentary guy with Trayce this year and the primary interior option next. Oh well.

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    Asked about an IU offer about 11 mins into the video and the kid really does give the anti-Blake Wesley response.

    (2021) - PF James Graham III

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f_YtT6vbs6k This is the only full game of Graham’s I’ve been able to find. State tournament game from March against, swear to God, Beaver Dam HS. Tallest kid on Beaver Dam is 6’1”. Between Graham and Jalen Johnson(6’9” kid going to Duke) it’s every bit the beating you’d expect. So not super instructive, but there are a couple of things: 1) was 4-5 from 3. Kid has a great stroke. So clean and simple I doubt he ever slumps. If you’re gonna have an elite skill, he’s got the best one. 2) His athleticism has a long way to go. He doesn’t run that well. He really has to gather to elevate. And the one that really bothers me is that he doesn’t change directions smoothly. At all. 3) I’m extrapolating too much from 1 viewing against a bad team, but he strikes me as a combo forward, but not in the best way. Not big or strong enough to play on the interior and maybe not athletic enough to defend on the perimeter. But, hey, shooters are shooters. Definitely going to try to find more game video.

    Really long way. Will be very, very surprised if he doesn’t take all of his visits.

    Didn’t get this offer from the jump. Everything about this kid, and I don’t mean this critically of Clark, screams anti-Archie.

    https://247sports.com/college/basketball/recruiting/Article/North-Carolina-Kentucky-Arizona-DePaul-Florida-State-Georgetown-Gonzaga-Michigan-Minnesota-basketball-recruiting-2022-five-star-Skyy-Clark-148854692/Amp/?__twitter_impression=true No mention of Indiana. My favorite part is Clark extolling the virtues of how Patrick Ewing uses his guards at Georgetown and does it by pointing to James Akinjo and Mac McClung, who’ve left the program.
  10. Per Mike Schumann, CAM spoke today with North Central PG Leland Walker. First I remember hearing of contact between the program and Walker.

    Justin Smith Declares

    https://arkansas.rivals.com/news/smith-brings-versatility-to-arkansas-as-a-grad-transfer Love this article. Musselman is a smart, smart guy. Puts out in the public arena exactly what Justin and his family want to hear(playing some 2, increased 3pt looks, creating his own offense off the bounce) when in reality he’s gonna do none of those things.

    UK apparently offered today, per Corey Evans. Seems too symmetrical not to happen.

    (2021) SG - Blake Wesley

    Given that Wesley isn’t a very physical kid that actually strikes me as a really good pure basketball fit with all 5 out they run and all of the 3’s they generate. I like it.

    (2022) PG Bruce Thornton

    In the games I’ve able to find he reminds of a more offensively talented Hassan Diarra. Just a really tough, competitive, high effort kid. And I’ve always had a weakness for kids who also play football.
  15. See, being able to parse a subtle, non statement like that one is EXACTLY what we’ve missed in your absence.
