Indiana has offered one of the hottest names of the spring.
Class of 2025 point guard Darius Acuff announced an offer from the IU staff on Monday on his social media pages.
Playing up a year on the Nike EYBL Circuit for The Family, Acuff is averaging 20.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists through 12 EYBL games while converting at a 38 percent clip from beyond the arc. He’s the second leading scorer on the entire circuit and he’s gone from relative unknown on the national scene to big-time prospect.
As a sophomore at Cass Tech H.S. (Detroit, Mich.), Acuff led his school their first ever Michigan State High School Athletic Association championship. They finished with a 27-1 record on the season while Acuff averaged 21.4 points and 5.7 assists per game. He was named 2022-23 MaxPreps Michigan High School Basketball Player of the Year.
A big, strong, physical guard, Acuff has few limitations on the offensive end.
“A smooth operator on offense who sees angles, plays through contact and explodes through holes in the defense, what makes Acuff so dangerous is that he can really shoot from deep as well,” 247Sports national analyst Eric Bossi wrote after Acuff’s latest high level performance over the weekend.
The 6-foot-2 Acuff has offers from Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Pitt and others. Most of those offers have come in the last month.
Acuff is no ranked by the major outlets yet, but that’s obviously going to change with the spring he’s had and the offers he’s gained.
