Timeline — Hurt plans to cut his list down to 8 or 9 schools in August and then start taking visits in September. He is eyeing a November commitment, but the process could go into the spring. A prior visitor to Bloomington, Hurt indicated in July that he intends to visit Indiana again.
IU Connections — Hurt is good friends with former AAU teammate and current Hoosier Race Thompson. Hurt is also well acquainted with IU assistant coach Tom Ostrom, a fellow Minnesota native.
“(We’re) really close,” he said. “I think (Miller) is going to have a pretty successful year this upcoming year. We’re close and (associate head coach Tom) Ostrom is a great recruiter. The coaching staff is great.”
