Jeff Rabjohns of the Indianapolis Star, citing "multiple people with knowledge of the situation," reports that Tom Crean's amazing recruiting haul will continue. Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell, who according to Rivals is the #2 point guard and #17 player in the class of 2012, will announce tomorrow evening that he is committing to Indiana. A few months ago, IU fans were hoping for a development, any development, in recruiting. Since then, the haul has been incredible. Certainly, the further out a player's signing date is, the higher the risk that he will change his mind. Still, despite the poor win-loss records over the last two seasons, Crean is successfully selling the future of IU basketball.
Ferrell, a junior at Park Tudor, a high-priced private school in Indianapolis, becomes the fourth member of the class of 2011, joining Hanner Perea of LaLumiere in Laporte (#10 Rivals) , Ron Patterson of Indianapolis Broad Ripple (#78 Rivals), and Peter Jurkin ( #137 Rivals). IU still can take one more player for the class of 2012, and Gary Harris of Hamilton Southeastern (#24 Rivals) and Jeremy Hollowell of Lawrence Central (#38 Rivals) remain in contention for that final spot.
UPDATE: As is noted below in the comments, Ferrell, per his Twitter page, is not happy about the coverage and denies that he has committed. I'm not sure the article really says that he "has committed." It says that he "will commit." We'll find out tomorrow night, I suppose.
