Re: Hoosier Hoops
Well this sucks.
In a major shift from information given only a couple weeks ago, IU is out of the mix for the No. 4 point guard in the nation, Kyrie Irving, his uncle Sye Dean told Adam Zagoria of Zagsblog. Formerly, it was believed that Indiana and Duke were Irvingís top two schools, and that he would definitely take a visit to both.
Earlier today, his father told Zagoria that the Irvings were postponing their visit to IU, slated for Oct. 2, and that they were planning a visit to Georgia Tech on Oct. 23.
This is a huge blow to IUís recruiting class for 2010. However, Josh Selby, the No. 4 overall recruit in the land, who is also a point guard, has recently added IU to the list of schools he is looking at. That may be IUís last hope for a five-star player this year.
Currently, the class includes the No. 133 recruit in the nation, three-star shooting guard Victor Oladipo, and the unranked two-star forward David Williams.
I don't get too invested in recruiting, but I can't help but wonder how IU went from so high to so low so quickly.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
