IU basketball recruiting: Hoosiers offer 2025 Ohio guard Darryn Peterson

Indiana has offered class of 2025 guard Darryn Peterson, he reported on his Twitter page on Wednesday evening.

Peterson is a 6-foot-5 freshman guard at Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy in Cuyahoga, Ohio.

For AAU basketball he played last spring and summer for Adidas affiliated Wildcats Select based out of Pennsylvania.  He played up two age groups for most of 2021 and at times three.

There isn’t much in the way of rankings for the class of 2025 to this point, but given his skill level and ability to shine against older competition, Peterson looks like a clear top-25 prospect.

247Sports national analyst Brandon Jenkins described Peterson this way after watching him this summer:

“Versatile combo guard who can excel at both the point and shooting guard positions. He plays with a lot of confidence and poise with the ball in his hands for someone his age. Off the ball, he showed a clean shooting stroke from behind the arc as he looks to be more comfortable when his feet are set.”

So far Peterson has offers from LSU, Ohio State, Arizona State, St. John’s, Pitt, Xavier, West Virginia, Maryland and Akron.  His parents are Akron alumni and his father Darryl played for Akron and scored 1,377 points for the Zips from 2001-06.  Darryn’s older brother, Darryl Jr., is a linebacker for Wisconsin.  Akron is also the alma mater of IU basketball recruiting coordinator Brian Walsh.

Peterson is the fifth player IU has offered in the 2025 class.  All five players offered in 2025 to this point are in the 6-foot-5 to 6-foot-8 range, and long, highly versatile athletes who can play multiple positions and guard multiple positions.  To see a complete list of their 2023-2025 prospects and offers, GO HERE.
