IU basketball recruiting: Hoosiers offer class of 2022 top-60 forward Malik Reneau

Indiana is still entering new recruitments in the class of 2022 as players separate themselves during the July live period.

The latest target for IU is top-60 4-star forward Malik Reneau.

The 6-foot-9 Miami, Fla. based power forward announced an offer on Thursday from IU after a conversation with head coach Mike Woodson.

Reneau attends Montverde Academy in Florida where he is a teammate of fellow Indiana 2022 target Jalen Hood-Schifino.  For AAU basketball he plays for the Florida-based NightRydas on the Nike EYBL Circuit.  Reneau has been widely reported as a standout performer during July Nike EYBL action where he has averaged 20.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2 steals and 1.5 blocks in six games of Peach Jam qualifying and consolation action.  Reneau has shot 59.3 percent from the field while attempting just five 3-pointers in the six games.

On film Reneau is a high-motor rebounder who sprints the floor and finds a way to make plays.  The lefthander does most of his scoring right now around the basket, including taking his man off the dribble.  He is regarded as a high basketball IQ, team-oriented player.  Reneau has good length, has a strong physique, and he is an above average athlete.

247Sports tabs Reneau as a 4-star, the No. 53 overall player in the 2022 class, and the No. 7 power forward.  He holds offers from Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami (Fla.), Memphis, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Washington, and others. with many of those offers coming in July.  He took June official visits to Miami and Memphis.
