For the second time this week Indiana has looked to Illinois to make an offer in the class of 2021.
After offering Max Christie on Tuesday, Archie Miller has now done the same with forward Bryce Hopkins.
Hopkins announced the offer on Twitter.

Indiana head coach Archie Miller was in the Chicago area earlier in the day on Saturday, and news of the offer came soon thereafter.

The Chicago area product is a 6-foot-6 versatile combo-forward that can stretch the floor from distance, and put the ball on the floor to create shots. Hopkins also has a stout frame and he can impose his will with his size on the block, thereby creating mismatches when he is guarded by someone bigger or smaller.
Playing for Fenwick High School in Oak Park, Ill., Hopkins averaged 22 points, seven rebounds and two assists a game as a sophomore. He plays AAU for the same MoKan Elite program that produced Juwan Morgan. Hopkins’ U16 team had the best record on the Nike EYBL circuit through the spring.
Hopkins is not ranked yet by the major recruiting services. He has offers from several other Midwest programs including Illinois, Northwestern, Nebraska and Xavier.
