Recruiting roundup: Rawle Alkins puts on a show in front of his Indiana admirers

New, 18 comments

Out east, IU coaches watch 2016 G Rawle Alkins dominate vs 2015 G/F Davon Dillard. Back in the midwest, O.G. Anunoby put up a monster line, and the cream of the 2017 class in Indiana watched the Hoosiers dispose of Michigan in Bloomington.

News, notes, and any other random thoughts that deal with Hoosier recruits

- O.G. Anunoby rediscovered his scoring touch, going off for 38 points in an 80-72 win over Madison Prep on Saturday night. On Tuesday, Anunoby was in foul trouble for most of the night, but his Jefferson City teammates rallied for a 62-51 win over Rock Bridge.

- Waynesville HS and Juwan Morgan rolled past Joplin (MO) on Friday by a score of 64-41.

- Rawle Alkins had quite the week. After putting up a triple-double (13 pts, 12 reb, 10 assists) in front of Tom Crean and Chuck Martin on Wednesday, Alkins upped the ante with a line of 28 pts, 15 reb, and 11 assists while notching 1,000 career points at Christ the King HS on Friday night.

- Also in the gym on Wednesday was Davon Dillard, whose Our Savior New American (NY) team took on Rawle Alkins' Christ the King. After cutting his list to 5 schools this past week, the 4-star recruit has become a must-watch name for IU in the 2015 class. The 6'5" G/F has had a fantastic season, but apparently not enough for some IU fans, as evidenced by random IU fan Randall Smith, whose twitter account I HIGHLY recommend checking out, as it is a HOT TAEK goldmine that @PFTCommenter would be proud of.


- The 2015 recruiting class search rolls on, and Thomas Bryant continues to be a name that won't go away. In a 99-66 win over Legacy Charter on Sunday, Bryant dropped in 31 points. While IU is officially a part of his final 4 (IU, Mizzou, UK, Syracuse), it's unclear if former favorite Syracuse's recent self-imposed NCAA punishment (and potential for more) has had any effect on Bryant's recruitment. Maybe his mom might even begin to realize that running a pristine program is easier said than done.

- The Hoosiers played host to a slew of 2017 recruits during its victory over Michigan on Sunday, including top in-state players Kris Wilkes, Paul Scruggs, Malik Williams, and Zach Gunn. Also in attendance was the brother of James Blackmon Jr., 2016 G Vijay Blackmon. While it's still early, the 2017 class in the state of Indiana looks to have enormous potential for game-changing D1 talent.

- As always, keep up to date with our recruiting board.
