Recruiting Roundup: Devonte Green becomes the fourth member of the 2016 class

New, 10 comments

Indiana picks up a 2016 recruit and while a large group of top prospects came to see the Hoosiers dismantle Ohio State in person.

News, notes, and any other tidbits that deal with Hoosier recruiting:

- The major recruiting news for the Hoosiers came this weekend when 3-star G Devonte Green (Manhasset, NY) announced his decision to join IU's 2016 recruiting class. This recruitment had steadily been gaining steam and the two sides made it official on Saturday. Read more about it here.

- Curtis Jones has continued his stellar play, this time going for a triple-double in a huge 117-93 Huntington Prep win over Victory Prep. The Jones/Miles Bridges (MSU commit) combo has been a two-headed monster for teams to combat, and each player is reaping the rewards of the pairing. Check out the highlight tape below of Jones in action at the Chick-Fil-A Classic from over the holidays.

- The current Indiana squad picked a good time to have their best game of the season on Sunday, as they hosted a number of elite recruits for the Ohio State massacre.  The tweet below shows the big names in both the 2017 and 2018 classes that made their way down to Bloomington.

Also in attendance was 4-star wing Justin Smith (Lincolnshire, IL).

- In addition to taking in the IU-Ohio State game, 5-star 2017 prospect Kris Wilkes was doing his thing on the court as well. He notched his 1000th point as a high schooler with an emphatic dunk in a North Central win over Ben Davis this past week. He had 23 in the game.

- With an eye to the future, its time to start paying attention to the class of 2018, and specifically Romeo Langford. Pictured above in the group that was in attendance on Sunday, Langford appears to be the premier in-state talent in his class. A 6'3", 165 lb G out of New Albany, Langford is ranked #33 in the class of 2018. In two games this week, Langford averaged 24 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 2 blocked shots.

- 2017 F Malik Williams (Fort Wayne, IN) continues to get better and better. In a recent win over Northrop, the lanky big man did a bit of everything, finishing with a line of 20 points and 13 rebounds with a number of highlight plays throughout, which you can see in the video below.
