IU basketball’s recruiting weekend received a lot of national attention, but the staff still has more work to do to secure commitments in the class of 2024.
Indiana rolled out the red carpet for Montverde Academy senior teammates Liam McNeeley, Derik Queen and Curtis Givens, and by all accounts the visits were a success.
But all three have additional visits planned.
McNeeley has a Texas visit on the schedule for Sept. 22, Givens has Memphis the same weekend, and Queen has Maryland in October. At various stages of their recruitments, those schools have each been seen as a respective home state favorite.
Queen also has a visit to Houston scheduled in early October.
Meanwhile, the IU staff rolls on too.
The NCAA’s recruiting calendar allows in-person visits by coaches again this week through the early signing period.
As previously reported, Mike Woodson is headed to New York to visit 2024 5-star point guard Boogie Fland. He just wrapped up a Kentucky visit, and still has trips to Alabama and Maryland scheduled. Indiana would still like Fland to come back to Bloomington for a senior year official visit, although he was just there in June.
The New York trip by Woodson will be just one of many stops on the road by the IU staff over the next few weeks as they hit open gyms and go in-home/school with top targets.
Already reported today was a Monday trip by the IU staff including Woodson to see 2025 La Lumiere (LaPorte, Ind.) guards Jalen Haralson and Darius Adams, along with subsequent staff visits to see 2025 in-state guards Braylon Mullins (Greenfield Central H.S.) and Azavier Robinson (Lawrence North H.S.).
There should be many more as IU typically tries to see all of its main junior and senior targets during this time of year. Expect trips to Montverde and plenty of other stops in the days and weeks to come.
And IU also isn’t done with high profile class of 2024 on-campus official visits.
In under three weeks, 2024 top-30 guard prospect Annor Boateng will take his weekend stay in Bloomington.
Collectively, the McNeeley, Queen, Givens, Fland and Boateng quintet appear to be where most of the staff’s energy is focused with the 2024 class. But they are still involved with additional targets in the senior class, including Asa Newell, the Montverde teammate of McNeeley, Queen and Givens.
And with most and perhaps all of IU’s main 2024 targets likely to announce decisions over the next six to eight weeks, things should remain very interesting.
