    I didn’t realize there was a recruit out there that didn’t hold an IU offer?!?

      I am sure one will soon be on the way. Cast a big net, catch more fish. Try to fit the pieces together later.

      Good point, I think Crean just goes down the ESPN Top 100 list and offers everybody on the list.

      Crean just got SnapChat so he’ll be offering the Top 100 in every class with a smirk.

  • I’ve not seen the vid yet that makes me think Cook is a fit here, but on the other hand if Beilein wants him, I do too.

    Seems coach Beilein might be thinking he’d be pressing his luck to wait for yet another eleventh hour under the radar guy to show up.

    I am not sure what issue my computer has but videos off this website drag and are basically unwatchable, yet the same video from YouTube works just fine– very bizarre.
