2013 F/C Luke Fischer Commits to IU

Coming across the wire this morning is news that Luke Fischer out of Germantown, WI has committed to the Hoosiers for 2013. He will join Colin Hartman and Devin Davis to turn the 2013 class into a three man all top 150 class. This is a major coup for Indiana as he is the prototypical Wisconsin big man that would kill us if he wound up there. Bo Ryan and the Badgers were the other big team in the running for his services.

Fischer is a recruit that is currently ranked 142 in Rivals top 150, but he is poised to shoot up the rankings this coming summer. He is noticeably stronger from his AAU summer campaign and is still an athlete that runs the floor incredibly well. His local paper listed him a 6'11" but he's probably closer to 6'9"-6'10". Over the summer he drew several favorable comparisons to Cody Zeller with his play. Many think that he has the potential to be a top 50 recruit when all is said and done. His play style is near identical that of Zeller and would offer some fantastic depth and athleticism in the front court almost immediately.

Look for more to come on his style and what this means for the Hoosiers future this afternoon.
