2023 forward T.J. Power excludes IU from his final five

As is always the case in August, rising senior prospects are narrowing their recruitments and announcing commitments.

That means Indiana’s pool of 2023 targets is shrinking regularly.  On Monday it was highly-coveted forward T.J. Power who announced a list of his final five schools.

Although IU prioritized Power heavily since offering him in April, he left the Hoosiers out of his final five.  Duke, Virginia, North Carolina, Boston College, and Iowa were instead the schools that made the cut for the Massachusetts product.  IU was widely expected to land an official visit from Power over the summer before his recruitment erupted as a result of high caliber play on the Nike EYBL circuit.  He told The Daily Hoosier he had made tentative plans to visit in June.

Indiana also missed out on Virginia wing Jamie Kaiser on Sunday, meaning their quest to add perimeter shooters to the 2023 class remains an ongoing effort.

IU’s primary 2023 target at this point in time appears to be center Arrinten Page.  The Hoosiers already have commitments from point guard Gabe Cupps, and combo guard Jakai Newton.
