Class of 2023 forward/center Arrinten Page is taking an official visit to IU, beginning on Wednesday. He is the second of three key class of 2023 visits this week, following Jamie Kaiser and preceding DeShawn Harris-Smith.
Page is a key target for Indiana as they look to replenish the frontcourt after the anticipated departures of Trayce Jackson-Davis and Race Thompson following the 2022-23 season.
Hailing from Georgia, Page began earning high major offers in the spring after a strong start to the AAU season.
Below are the key things to know about Page as he arrives for his two-day visit.

Indiana Connections — Assistant coach Yasir Rosemond’s deep Georgia ties played the key role in getting Indiana involved with Page.

Numbers — In his most recent EYBL weekend, Page averaged 9.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks and shot 46.8 percent from the field. He had several double-doubles over the course of the spring and summer.

“He’s likely going to be more of a five man in college because he can move, switches and recovers, rebounds and has some real toughness as well. He’s bouncy around the rim, finishes with power but also shows just enough touch to suggest that he can develop some offensive game facing the rim over the next few years.”
“Page has always had the ability to run the floor, but he’s now shown a knack for finishing at the rim and dominating the glass. His touch, hands and defense have come a long way this spring, making his long-term trajectory encouraging.”
“He has a college-ready body. He was quite possibly the most physically mature player on the floor in terms of his stature. A lot of players his age (16!) have difficulty putting on weight/muscle but not Page. He also showed touch around the rim, and the ability to block shots, rebound and stretch the floor.”
“Coach Woodson has told me about their play style and how he gets everybody involved in the offense, and I like that,” Page said. “It’s like a big family over there, and just real good people over there.”
“I am looking to see if the coaching staff has developed other players of my skillset at my position. I am also looking to see if their system is conducive to my playstyle.”
“Their fanbase is really good. Coach ‘Ya’ [Yasir Rosemond], he’s saying that he likes my potential and my ceiling.”
What’s he looking for in a school as the calls come pouring in?
“Just somebody that’s willing to help me develop even more and use my talents.”
