    Arizona released Emmanuel Negedu from his LOI today. Gary Parrish at Sportsline listed Tennessee and Indiana as the top suitors for him. Negedu is rated #71 by Scout.com and #40 by Rivals.com.

    Any word on why he wanted out of AZ?

    From the Tucson Citizen:

    Negedu, who signed in November and was recruited by former UA assistant Josh Pastner and Lute Olson, said the number of coaching changes and Olson's unexplained absence gave him doubts about the program. Olson has a completely new assistant coaching staff.

    Not sure UT is a bastion of stability, if that's what he's looking for.

    The Peegs board seems to think Memphis is the frontrunner with UT as a possibility. They give Crean very little chance at landing him. ITH is a little more optimistic.

    If the release is granted, Indiana would certainly be interested in Negedu, who is a top 40 player in the 2008 class. Negedu played AAU with the Indiana Elite program and there are reports that his guardian is Mark Adams, who lives in Bloomington. Adams is a coach for Indiana Elite. Negedu is a native of Kaduna, Nigeria and played for Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire last season.

    Maurice Sutton hasn't announced anything yet either. Although the general vibe is he is most likely going to choose Villanova.

    Another JUCO commits, per ITH.

    According to sources speaking with Peegs, Tigan Jobe a 7-foot-0, 265-pound sophomore from Olney Central College will sign with IU today. He averaged three points, three rebounds and six blocks a game. (See: project.)

    It seems Crean went after what was left of big men in both the high school (Maurice Sutton) and juco ranks (Jobe), and perhaps might find himself a bit handcuffed now as far as scholarships are involved if Emmanuel Negedu wants to bring his services to Bloomington. (Fingers crossed.)
    From Rivals:

    Multiple sources indicate now to Peegs.com/Inside Indiana that 7-foot, 255-pound center Tijan Jobe will sign a letter of intent with Indiana today. Jobe is a sophomore now at Olney Central College in Illinois and has two years of college eligibility.

    Jobe is originally from the African country of Gambia. He has flown a bit under the radar after averaging just 3.0 points and 3.1 rebounds per game this past season at Olney Central. He shot 54.1% from the floor but only 40.5% from the charity stripe.

    According to sources, Jobe has been on the Hoosier campus today with Olney Central head coach Mike Burris. The 7-footer moved transferred to Olney Central last year after spending one year at Butler County C.C. in Kansas. Jobe came from Gambia to the USA in 2004 and graduated from Laurinburg Institute in North Carolina before moving on to junior college.

    The Jobe signing comes only a day before the Hoosiers are expected to hear from 6-foot-10 center prospect Maurice Sutton. The high school senior from Maryland is planning to announce his college choice tomorrow, the final day of the spring signing period.

    that guy sounds like he will have to work hard to become the second worst IU player in history.

    PG from Bloomington committed, however. IU should challenge teams to a 6'2" and under tournament

    Re: Indiana set to hire Tom Crean

    Crean got another commitment for the 2009 class. Per ITH,

    According to our good friend Chris Korman of the H-T/Hoosier Scoop, Bloomington South 2009 point guard Jordan Hulls has committed to Indiana. Hulls was also considering Purdue, Duke, Stanford and a host of smaller schools.

    Scout.com recently ranked Hulls the 13th best point guard prospect in the 2009 class. His addition brings IU to 12 scholarship players for the 2009-2010 season.

    Guess there are worse things than trying to recruit a Bloomington South star.

    By the way, anyone who can help me edit the picture to a more reasonable size, please feel free to do so.

    Re: Indiana set to hire Tom Crean

    Here's an update on the NCAA Infractions Committee, Sampson, etc. from ITH.



    The Indianapolis Star continues their stellar coverage of Indianaís upcoming hearing with the NCAA infractions committee this morning with a look at whether or not IU was guilty of ďfailure to monitor,Ē which would likely bring a stiffer penalty if past hearings are any indication. Mark Alesia explains:
    IU is accused of five potentially major rules violations in its menís basketball program. Those do not include failure to monitor, a serious offense in the eyes of the NCAA, one that would increase the likelihood of scholarship cuts or recruiting limitations beyond what the school has already self-imposed. (A postseason ban is possible for major violations but it appears unlikely in IUís case.)

    The infractions committee could determine that because IU hired Sampson, in March 2006, while the coach was under self-imposed sanctions for major recruiting violations incurred at Oklahoma, IU should have monitored him and his staff more vigilantly.

    The committee chairman at the time, Tom Yeager, told USA Today earlier this year that IU could be held responsible for Sampsonís subsequent violations.

    ďI think the institutionís accountability will run to things like monitoring. (IU officials) were on notice with the hire. They were at the Oklahoma hearing. I think the committee will look at it very closely, at institutional responsibility as well as individual responsibility.Ē
    Essentially, this is going to come down to Indianaís word against Kelvin Sampsonís word. IU will argue that it had procedures in place to monitor Sampson and staff properly, but the coaches knew about the rules and broke them anyway. Sampson, on the other hand, will say that IU waited too long to let him know of any wrongdoing.

    I will say that a year-end review of phone call records by an intern is a bit on the laid back side when dealing with a coach that came with baggage. IU should have been more proactive in this regard. This is, after all, why you employ a compliance department. Monthly audits would have been a nice start.
