In March, he was named to the Georgia AAAA All-State Team. In the article earlier today from TheDailyHoosier on Coach Yas, it's stated that he trained Banks among others. 247 Rivals Hudl July 2020 Article MaxPreps for 20-21 MaxPreps for 18-19 and 19-20

    USA totally decimated the Dominican Republic 103-39 in its opening AmeriCup game. Grace Berger had 6 pts; 5 reb and 4 assists in the win. USA plays Puerto Rico tomorrow; Venezuela on Monday; Argentina on Tuesday. On Thursday, they'll presumably play a quarterfinal game.

    Dan McDonald of Rivals - June 1 marked a big milestone for prospects in the 2022 class as they are finally able to get out and see the schools recruiting them and meet the coaching staff in person after being limited to phone calls, FaceTime and Zoom calls for the past 15 months. Throughout the summer, I’ll be highlighting important visits happening each week. This week, I’m intrigued by Indiana working to get Rivals150 forward Kaleb Banks up for his first official visit. The Georgia native received an offer from the new Hoosiers staff shortly after Mike Woodson hired fellow Georgia native Yasir Rosemond as an assistant coach. Banks holds several offers from ACC and SEC programs as well, but keep an eye on Indiana to pick up some momentum during this visit. Alabama and Georgia Tech, which hosted Banks on Wednesday for an unofficial visit, will also have a shot here. I’m not expecting a commitment any time soon, but it’s a great opportunity for the Hoosiers to gain some serious momentum in his recruitment.

    (2022) - C Shawn Phillips

    Dan McDonald of Rivals - (No. 42). At 6-foot-10, the Ohio native uses his big, strong frame as well as any prospect I saw this spring to seal off defenders and score from the block. He’s a good athlete with strong hands and soft touch around the rim. He just completed a visit to Illinois. Cincinnati, Dayton, Indiana, NC State, Ohio State and West Virginia have also been involved here. My prediction is those programs and others make him a priority coming out of July.

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    Rob Cassidy on Xavier Booker from the Pangos camp -- What he did at Pangos: This was my first viewing of Booker, but our Jamie Shaw has long been high on the 2023 prospect. Now I see why. A long, left-handed slasher Booker got buckets in a number of ways this week and showed himself to be a solid rebounder. He’ll need to become a more consistent shooter, but his strength, quickness and ability to finish at the rack are undeniable. Where he might land: Booker holds offers from Kansas State, LSU, TCU and others. He’ll likely see his offer list grow significantly in the month ahead.

Article below indicates we had an assistant at last night's game against Lafayette Jeff -- he scored 28 pts. on 11-17 FG but Jeff won 72-68. https://247sports.com/college/basketball/recruiting/Article/Dra-Gibbs-Lawhorn-2023-basketball-recruiting-Indiana-Purdue-Northwestern-143483711/ Per MaxPreps through 17 games he's averaging 19.2 ppg; 3 rpg; 1 assist; 1 steal.

    William Jobe passed along by The Daily Hoosier - Recruiting : 2024 @WilliamJobe14 is making an unofficial visit to @IndianaMBB this weekend. This 6’9 youngster has offers from Xavier and Auburn. Attends Frederica Academy in St. Simons Island, GA; plays 15U AAU on Team Dickerson (Noah Clowney's 17U team). Hudl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_diNUM7t0U
  13. It's never too early. Ya think there's already a connection established via our new assistant coach? Jacob Polacheck -- UConn and Indiana are starting to show interest in 2023 prospect Donald Villard as well as 2024 prospects Caleb Middleton and John Kallon. Not much out there on either player. NERR: Caleb Middleton is a 6'8" forward who attends New Hampton HS in New Hampton, NH. Not much out there but this snippet from New England Recruiting Report -- Caleb Middleton, Dover - Although Middleton is currently out with a broken arm, he was in attendance at Saturday’s Elite 75 and expects to be an immediate impact player in the NHIAA this upcoming season. At six-foot-seven, Middleton can play inside and out, and has a frame to keep growing. NERR: Caleb Middleton, who will be joining New Hampton’s class of 2024 next year, was the first player to catch our eye. He has a terrific early combination of size, skill, and fluidity. He runs and moves well for someone his age who is already every bit of 6-foot-9. The versatility in his skill set is very intriguing as well. He can step out and make threes, put the ball on the floor, and score inside with baby hooks and good footwork. In short, he’s bound to be one of the top early prospects in next year’s freshman class. John Kallon is a 6'3" PG from City on the Hill (MA) Charter School in Boston. https://www.zagsblog.com/2020/08/19/class-of-2023-john-kallon-hoping-to-take-two-visits/ NERR: In the class of 2023, John Kallon was particularly impressive. Again, he’s far from a finished product, but he’s a budding big guard with good size, pace, and smooth playmaking potential. He’s going to have to keep developing his shooting mechanics and learning how to play the point guard position, but his natural ability is clear and he showed some flashes of high-level plays throughout the practice.

    4- star PG Jeremy Fears attends La Lumiere HS and plays AAU for Bradley Beal Elite on the Nike circuit. 247 Rivals From April 30: Jeremy Fears is currently a 4-star recruit and ranked No. 23 nationally by 247Sports. That service lists him as the No. 7 point guard in the class. Even though he's a '23, he's playing 'up' with the Bradley Beal AAU team on the EYBL circuit so hopefully when the EYBL circuit starts we'll be able to get some good stats on him. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-class-of-2023-names-to-know-point-guard-jeremy-fears/?fbclid=IwAR3Gj35fLmDmEG52S0zWeNhWqAl6PDWMZ6WHJxahGh8LSXRoYTLfy6WSw8A

    All the stats for the Pangos camp have now been posted except for Jalen Hooks' last scheduled game of the camp. Although he was selected for the Top 60 game, his name does not appear in the box score and it may be because he had to get back to the midwest as I think he had a Marquette visit lined up. Neither Avery Brown nor Julian Phillips were selected for either the Top 30 or Top 60 games and Phillips' name does not appear in the box score for his last scheduled game. Pts.
