Indiana Connections — This is a relatively new relationship for IU.  Indiana’s main connection in this recruitment is assistant coach Yasir Rosemond, who has deep ties in the Southeast.  Mike Woodson is also heavily involved.

Numbers — Clowney averaged 10 points, 8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting 60 percent from the field to help lead Dorman to the state finals.  His emergence as a high major prospect took off with Team Dickerson in the spring.


“I am an inside-out big, I feel I can get you a bucket either way.  I am not going to try and do too much, keep it simple, make simple plays and the right play. Defensively, I feel like I can guard anyone on the court. I like to watch a lot of Anthony Davis and how he spaces the floor, and also Myles Turner. I like how he plays.

Clowney’s self assessment to Rivals

“Clowney’s tool kit is vast and his ceiling is through the roof. Standing at a lengthy 6-foot-10, Clowney is incredibly mobile on the floor. He moves his feet well laterally and he has vertical pop to get to the top of the square. A rim protector who can move his feet, Clowney also can shoot from beyond the arc. He cuts well off movement and he rebounds.”

Rivals’ national analyst Jamie Shaw

“I think Noah still has to learn how to defend without fouling. … Our strength coaches are working with him more on his lateral movement. Right now I think he’s more of a rim protector, but if he wants to be that stretch 4, he’s going to have to guard someone on the perimeter. He knows that and we’re working hard to improve that.”

Dorman coach Thomas Ryan to The Daily Hoosier


“He (Mike Woodson) wants to bring an NBA style to college basketball.  Because I’m versatile, he thinks I’d be able to play in his system very well. … He showed me a lot of pick-and-roll where I’d get lob opportunities, a lot of one-on-one face-up opportunities, he thinks I could take a lot of people one-on-one. He showed me, along with that pick-and-roll, a lot of slips and pick-and-pops as well to switch it up.”

Clowney to The Daily Hoosier

“I talk to Indiana almost every day, (assistant) coach Yasir Rosemond and coach Mike Woodson. They have been honest with me, telling me I would play early and what I need to work on. Coach Woodson has been in the NBA, and he wants to bring that NBA to college, I like that. I do have an official visit set with Indiana in August. With a lot of these schools that are close, I am trying to take unofficial visits to them and if I like it I will go back on an official there.”
