An official visit signifies a higher level of interest by a recruiting target, and IU will have a new guest later this month as it looks to round out its 2020 recruiting class.
Jordan Geronimo is one of the more intriguing talents in the 2020 class, and he is reportedly planning an official visit to Indiana on August 30.
The 6-foot-6 New Hampshire product will also take visits to Georgia on September 21st and Boston College on September 27th according to a report by Scoopman TV.

A relative unknown nationally after his junior year of high school, a spring and summer breakout led to a wave of interest and offers for Geronimo.
Along with around a dozen other schools, IU offered Geronimo a scholarship in July.
Playing for one of the top teams (Mass Rivals / same program that produced Noah Vonleh) on the Adidas circuit, you can see Geronimo’s rise over the course of this spring and summer.

After playing fairly limited minutes early on, Geronimo’s stat line exploded — especially during the final weekend at the Adidas Summer Championships in Ladera Ranch, California.
Overall, Geronimo averaged 9.1 points per game, but that number ballooned to 17.5 a contest over his last two games.
Geronimo shot the ball well throughout AAU play, making 53.6% of his attempts overall, including 34.8% from behind the three-point line. Geronimo has added 4.1 rebounds per game on the Adidas circuit.
247Sports national analyst Brian Snow provided this assessment of Geronimo.
“A true July breakout performer, Geronimo again showed why he is reeling in high-major offers at a high rate. While he can be inconsistent, Geronimo has all the physical tools you could want in a hybrid forward. He stands around 6-foot-6, has excellent length, is a very good athlete, and then also has the ability to make shots from deep. The next step for Geronimo is to be more consistent with his production, and that definitely seems like an attainable goal. With back to back impressive showings, look for Geronimo to make a huge leap in the next batch of rankings.”
Geronimo attends St. Paul’s High School in Concord. According to a source at St. Paul’s, Geronimo averaged 14 points per game while shooting 52% on two-pointers and 38% from three-point range during his junior season. He added 8 rebounds, 3 blocks, 2 assists and 2 steals per contest.
Geronimo is ranked No. 135 in the 2020 class by Rivals. That service lists him as a three-star. He is No. 22 in his junior season highlights below.
