Class of 2024 IU basketball target Jonathan Powell names final six

Class of 2024 4-star wing Jonathan Powell says he is down to six schools.

The Ohio product told On3’s Joe Tipton on Tuesday he’s considering Indiana, Clemson, Michigan State, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, and Xavier.

The 6-foot-6 Powell told Tipton he’d like to wrap up his recruitment by the end of June.

Indiana has a close connection with Powell.  He transferred to Centerville H.S. in 2022 and played his junior season there with IU 2023 signee Gabe Cupps.

For his junior season, Powell led Centerville with 16.7 points per game. He added 3.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 steals per contest.

Powell is best know as a high volume and effective three-point shooter.  From the field he made 49 percent of his attempts overall for Centerville, including 41 percent from three on 214 attempts.  With Powell and Cupps leading the way, the Elks ended the season 25-4 after a state semifinal loss.

Indiana offered Powell a year ago soon after a 47-point outburst on the Adidas circuit when he made nine threes.

With his length and shooting ability, Powell has a game that translates to the NBA if he develops in other areas.  He has repeatedly cited the appeal of IU coach Mike Woodson’s NBA experience as a factor in his recruitment.  Powell has made multiple visits to Indiana over the last year.

According to the On3 industry average, Powell is a 4-star prospect, and the No. 93 overall player in the 2024 class.

Indiana does not have a commit in the 2024 class to this point.  They are also a finalist for point guard Jaeden Mustaf, and a contender for several other national top-100 prospects.
