New Recruit?

Sounds like Zack Novak (Rivals)  is a new 08 hoops recruit on the board. Novak is a SF from Chesterson, IN. Beilein said at the radio show that he went to see Novak play after the Purdue game. He also mentioned that they had wanted to offer him this summer but the scholarship situation was murky.

CHESTERTON — Zack Novak did it all at both ends Friday night including a game-high 31 points to lead Chesterton over Michigan City 69-62.

It’s only the second week of the Duneland season but the Trojans (3-0) are the lone unbeaten at 2-0 as Crown Point and Valparaiso lost Friday.

Novak scored 19 in the first half to City’s 21 as the Trojans took control with a 22-11 second quarter for a 36-21 halftime lead. He added a game-high 13 rebounds plus three steals and a block.

    I thought coaches weren’t allowed to talk about prospects until they sign. Am I confused?

    I think this is more the case that Beilein said something along the lines of: “We are still recruiting kids in 2008, including a kid whom we almost offered this summer for Indiana.” Didn’t mention the kid by name. Then connecting odds and ends it seems like it is Zack Novak.

    Is this the best we can do? His only offer is from Valpo??? Thank God for the the LLP transfer.
