Busy day for IU recruiting.   

6'4" Masai Troutman received an IU offer today.  Doesn't seem to be much out there on him at the moment but we should get some reports shortly.   He lives in Maryland and attends St. John's Catholic Prep in Buckeyestown, MD.

Found 1 game of his. Shot from a terrible angle and half the time wasn’t even pointed at the game. But, man, what a great looking athlete. Physically and athletically looks a lot like Hamidou Diallo. Definitely gotta find more.

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.

Same here.I was thinking why in the hell would we offer a kid like that.

It happens.

Would describe that less as a senior moment and more as an I didn’t re-read what I wrote and just sent it. ‘Cause, wow, that’s really not very clearly written.

Interesting that he didn’t have a relationship with Coach Hunter. Just assumed that’s where that came from.

 “He (Kenya Hunter) told me he was going to get the head coach with me on the phone the next day.  And then the very next day I got on the phone with Coach (Archie) Miller, and he officially offered me.  He talked about him seeing me as the next Victor Oladipo if I go there.”

I encourage y'all to take a look at the sophomore year highlight video embedded in this link. For a player with off the charts athleticism, his jump shot is very repeatable and composed.  

Glad we got in early on this one.

Stroke both off the bounce and the catch  looks almost exactly like Michael Jordan’s. The way he squares up, launch point, everything. And you’re right about getting in early. This kid is going to explode and everyone’s gonna want in.
