On Friday IU head basketball coach Archie Miller struck gold once again, landing the top recruit in the state of Indiana as Bloomington High School South guard Anthony Leal announced his commitment to the Hoosiers via Twitter.

Leal chose the Hoosiers over Stanford. He also had offers Butler, Xavier and Iowa among others. He begins his senior campaign inside the 247 Sports top 100 as the outlet’s 96th overall recruit.

The four-star should provide a scoring and shooting boost the second he steps on campus in Bloomington. He’s known mostly as a sharpshooter from beyond the arc, something that the Hoosiers have desperately needed over the past few years. He was also an AAU teammate of the only other current member of the IU recruiting class, Trey Galloway.

The Hoosiers are still expected to have at least a pair of scholarships open for next season, there could be more if there are any early departures from the roster. With Leal’s commitment IU has landed its top two targets in the class of 2020. Remaining targets include Caleb Love, R.J. Davis and Dawson Garcia among others.
