    A little info on Crean's first commitment for '10. From ITH.

    Williams family talks IU decision
    By Alex | April 23, 2009

    Many Indiana fans were surprised at the news early last evening that David Williams, a 6-7 wing from Jacksonville (FL), had given a verbal commitment to the Hoosiers. Despite averaging 21 points, 11 rebounds and six assists as a junior this past season, Williams was a virtual unknown nationally. We caught up with his father, Dwight, to learn more about the first addition to the 2010 class.

    On his son’s decision to commit to Indiana:
    “He was recently offered, but we had been in communications with Indiana since July. Roshown McLeod coached him last summer and Coach Crean hired McLeod to be an assistant coach and my son really, really liked two things: Indiana and he had a good relationship with Coach McLeod. He did all of his research, so this wasn’t a hasty decision. He knows a lot about the physical therapist program in which he wants to study. We went on the Web Site and researched the school. We know it’s cold up in that area (laughs). Everything that it offered was good. We looked at some games on the TV last season. So this was not they came to see him one time and he made a hasty decision. It was well thought out with David and the entire family.”

    Thoughts on the distance from Jacksonville to Bloomington and being able to watch his son play in college:
    “We’re gonna be there. As long as they have planes, we’re going to be there. It’s a very, very historical institution as far as basketball and it’s very prestigious as far as academics. We gave up convenience, but we felt in the long run, it would benefit our son.”

    On David on the court versus David off the court:
    “He is a very different person on and off the court. He’s intense, he’ll give you 110 percent, he works hard at practice, but he knows how to relax and have fun.”

    Good thing Crean locked this kid up early.

    BTW: Crean is on twitter as well. Although Kentucky fans have already doubled up his number of followers in less than 24 hours.

    The allure of the shady characters is always stronger.

    Ashton Kutcher has more than both of them put together. That tells me all I need to know about twitter.

    Not really.

    Getting texts from your team's head coach letting fans know what he is up to on a daily basis is awesome as far as I'm concerned.

    Re: Hoosier Hoops

    I looked up David Williams on rivals and he has no stars. Is that correct?

    I'm sure Stallings would like to tweet but it's easier to just call the people in his fav 5 directly.

    Vanderbilt people have better things to do. Like keeping all those Kentucky grads employed.
