We can start with some quick housekeeping in the class of 2024.
Indiana offered rising senior wing Marcus Allen in April, but that never seemed to gain serious traction. The Miami, Fla. product was an AAU teammate of priority IU 2024 target Liam McNeeley over the summer.
On Wednesday multiple outlets reported Allen will announce a college decision on Aug. 7. Indiana could still see him in the Big Ten. His finalists are Arkansas, Miami, Missouri, Michigan, Ohio State and Stanford.

From the class of 2025, in-state forward Trent Sisley is coming off a solid summer playing up a year for the Indy Heat on the Nike EYBL circuit. He shot 45 percent from three and 58 percent overall in the April and May EYBL games.
Sisley has visited IU several times already, and he has two more stops in Bloomington planned this fall. He’ll take an unofficial the weekend of Sept. 23. That’s the weekend IU hosts Akron for football.
The 6-foot-7 combo forward (Heritage Hills H.S.) is also planning to visit IU for Hoosier Hysteria. That will be held on Oct. 20, and falls on homecoming weekend. IU football hosts Rutgers the next day. Sisley has two siblings enrolled on campus in Bloomington this year. He also attended Hoosier Hysteria on homecoming weekend last year, along with a large contingent of family members.
IU offered Sisley before he started his freshman season of high school basketball. The Hoosiers are competing with Purdue, Notre Dame, Michigan State and others for the national top-50 4-star prospect.
We haven’t talked much at all about class of 2026 prospects to this point. Indiana hasn’t offered anyone in that rising high school sophomore class yet, at least in part due to the transfer portal diverting staff attention.
But those 2026 names will start rolling in soon, and one to keep an eye on is Jayden Johnson, from Louisville. He is someone the IU staff has had their eyes on for a while.
Johnson told Jake Weingarten of Stock Risers he has an August visit set up to Indiana. Johnson confirmed with The Daily Hoosier he is planning to visit, and he’s working today to confirm the date with the IU staff. It will be his first of several regional high major visits over the next couple months.
The 6-foot-5 Johnson started high school varsity as an eighth-grader. He already has offers from Missouri, West Virginia and Cincinnati. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if IU joined them and offered when he visits. It’s early, but Johnson projects as a skilled shot-making wing at the next level.
Johnson attends Louisville Trinity H.S.
