IU basketball recruiting: Hoosiers offer class of 2024 forward Cooper Koch

Indiana dipped back into the class of 2024 on Saturday with an offer to a rising star from a familiar AAU program.

Cooper Koch led the Indiana Elite 15U Adidas team to a runner-up finish at the circuit finals in July.  The versatile 6-foot-7 prospect hails from Peoria, Ill. and attends Notre Dame High School there.

Indiana Elite announced the IU offer on their Twitter page.  Koch later reported that he had spoken with IU head coach Mike Woodson earlier in the day.

Iowa will be viewed as the favorite in this recruitment for as long as it lasts.  Koch is the son of former Iowa player J.R. Koch, who was a 6-foot-10 forward for the Hawkeyes from 1995 to 1999 when he played for Tom Davis.

The younger Koch is a skilled forward who can score in the paint and out to the 3-point line.  An average athlete, he uses his length and craftiness to score inside the arc.  Based on his father’s height it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Koch grow a few more inches.

Thus far Koch has high major offers from Iowa, Wake Forest, Purdue and Wisconsin in addition to Indiana.

There are no national rankings for the 2024 class at this time.  Koch is expected to be ranked once they are published by the major outlets.
