Two unofficial visits were enough for the top center on the board for Indiana.
Cincinnati based class of 2021 center Logan Duncomb has committed to Indiana.
The 6-foot-9 Duncomb announced his decision on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

Duncomb had previously told the 247Sports Wisconsin site that he planned to take an official visit to Indiana this spring, but with the recruiting restrictions in place due to COVID-19, that visit never happened.
Duncomb was on campus for the Jan. 26 game in Bloomington against Maryland and had previously visited IU in September.
Those visits were enough for Duncomb, who is a four-star recruit and the No. 106 player in the country according to the 247Sports Composite.
Already 240 pounds with a 7-foot-4 wingspan, Duncomb averaged 13.8 points and 8.5 rebounds for a 26-1 Moeller squad during the 2019-20 season. Duncomb shot 70 percent from the field on the season and also made 3 of his 7 three-point attempts. From the free throw line Duncomb made 67.3 percent of his attempts as a junior.
Rivals recruiting analyst Corey Evans said this about what Indiana fans can expect from Duncomb early in his IU career.
“Duncomb should leave an immediate mark on the program thanks to his half-court skillset, ability to make shots to the perimeter, and also rebound in traffic.”
247Sports national writer Brian Snow also weighed in recently on Duncomb:
“Duncomb isn’t the most athletic, but he has improved his ability to run the floor, has gotten noticeably stronger, and continues to improve on his skills. While he is a capable outside shooter, he is at his best around the rim. Also, his extreme length makes up for his lack of total athleticism, and allows him to rebound in and out of his area while also protect the rim. He will never be a great athlete, so improving his physique will always be a focus, and so far Duncomb has done a good job of that.”
Indiana will have an opening for significant playing time in the paint in 2021 with Joey Brunk exhausting his eligibility and Trayce Jackson-Davis a likely candidate to move on to the professional game.
Duncomb’s former Moeller teammate Michael Shipp is a walk-on with the IU program. Duncomb also hails from the same AAU travel program (Indiana Elite – Adidas) as current IU 2020 signees Trey Galloway and Anthony Leal, along with fellow 2021 commit Khristian Lander.
Duncomb joins No. 1 point guard Lander as the second member of Indiana’s class of 2021. Lander intends to reclassify to the class of 2020 if he can fulfill the requirements to do so.
Duncomb chose IU over Xavier, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Wisconsin and Iowa.
