Jordan Geronimo must have enjoyed Bloomington.
After his first ever college official visit, the class of 2020 wing committed to Indiana on Sunday night.
The New Hampshire product confirmed the news on Instagram.
Indiana offered the 6-foot-6 wing in July.
Going into the AAU season, Geronimo wasn’t ranked by the national recruiting services and he wasn’t hearing much from any high major college basketball programs.
That all changed for Geronimo after an impressive stretch of play reached its pinnacle in July and saw the Concord product receive a wave of high profile offers and storm into the top-100 national rankings.
Geronimo’s high school coach Max Gordon has seen the intangibles that suggested this prolific jump was possible.
“Jordan is a fantastic young man and has the mental toughness and physical gifts to be special,” Gordon told The Daily Hoosier.
“Jordan is very similar as a player and person. He is coachable, hard-working, and driven to be great. This extends to his academics and the type of person he is off the court. As a player, the sky is the limit because of his work ethic and IQ combined with his athleticism, length, and shooting touch.”
Indiana offered Geronimo after watching him shine at the Adidas Summer Championships in July.
