Archie Miller pushing to keep Clifton Moore and Al Durham at Indiana

Less than a day into his new job and Miller is already working the phones.

After Tom Crean’s firing, two 2017 Indiana commits - Clifton Moore and Al Durham - announced they were requesting releases from their letters of intent at IU.

Now that Archie Miller has been hired by the Hoosiers, he’s making an attempt to keep them both in Bloomington, according to Adam Zagoria.

Moore and Durham are both 3-star recruits in the 2017 class. Moore, who is a 6-10 power forward hailing from outside Philly, is the 142nd ranked player for 2017, according to 247Sports; while Durham, a point guard from the Atlanta suburbs, ranks 240th nationally. Justin Smith, a 4-star recruit who is also part of the incoming 2017 class at IU, is still committed to the Hoosiers.

If Miller can keep the pieces together of this recruiting class, and the roster turnover is minimal, he could be working with a solid foundation in his first year as head coach at Indiana.
