An expected emphasis on the class of 2023 has started since June 15.
Indiana has offered its second player in as many days now that coaches are able to make direct contact with members of the incoming junior class.
The latest to receive an IU offer is Georgia wing Coen Carr. The offer was reported by Rivals national analyst Dan McDonald on Twitter.

Based on his location, the 6-foot-6 Carr is almost certainly being recruited by new IU assistant coach Yasir Rosemond, who hails from Georgia and has deep contacts in the area.
Indiana appears to be in early with the emerging prospect. Carr is not currently ranked according to the major recruiting outlets. According to 247Sports, his lone offer beyond Indiana is Kennesaw State. Recent social media reports indicate that Carr has also been offered by Georgia and James Madison. On June 15, Carr also heard at least from Georgia Tech, Florida, Marquette and Elon according to reports.
Carr is best known for being an elite athlete, but his development as a perimeter shooter has boosted his stock to the high major level. McDonald filed this report on Carr in May:
“In an event full of great athletes, Coen Carr for the Georgia Stars 16-under was probably the best of the bunch,” McDonald wrote. “But what’s equally important for the 6-foot-6 forward in the 2023 class is that he showed some touch on some three-pointers and had some nice drives to the rim as well.”
Hoop Seen editor Justin Byerly posted this report in May on Twitter regarding Carr:
“Carr was one of the most explosive athletes I saw all weekend. Loves to get out in transition and demolish the rims. Good size at the guard spot and good luck out-rebounding him.”
Carr attended Dutchtown High School in Hampton, Georgia as a sophomore, but he is headed to Legacy Early College next season.
Carr is playing for the Georgia Stars on the U16 Nike EYBL circuit this summer. That team includes at least two more Indiana 2023 prospects, point guard Chase Clemmons and wing Mari Jordan.
