Peter Jurkin, a 7-0 junior-to-be, has become the first commitment in the Indiana basketball recruiting class that will enroll in 2012. Inside the Hall has a brief interview with Jurkin. Currently, Jurkin is unranked by Rivals and Scout but is ranked #37 in his class by ESPN. Apparently, his play this summer is expected to give him a boost in the other rankings. Jurkin now is one of two players committed to Indiana. Hamilton Heights senior Austin Etherington is the only recruit committed for the class that will enroll next year. Cody Zeller, the younger brother of current North Carolina player Tyler Zeller and former Notre Dame player Luke Zeller, appears to be IU's top target for the short term. Jurkin is a nice addition and hopefully the start of a positive trend.
