IU basketball recruiting: In-state class of 2022 guard C.J. Gunn announcing commitment soon

One of the top in-state guards in the class of 2022 is set to come off the board in a few weeks.

Indianapolis, Ind. based shooting guard C.J. Gunn announced on his Twitter account that he intends to announce a commitment on Feb. 7.

When we spoke to Gunn in August, he had good relationship developing with the IU staff.

“Just the chemistry.  It seemed like the coaches really care about me,” Gunn said at the time about Indiana.  “Just that they even took time out of their day to give me a Zoom call.  It just feels amazing that they have me on their radar.”

Since then the relationship and the frequency of the dialogue has increased.  Indiana offered Gunn a scholarship in August after a strong showing during AAU play, and he has played well to start his junior season of school ball.

The 6-foot-5 Gunn attends Lawrence North High School on the northeast side of Indianapolis.  He was averaging 14.5 points per game for the No. 1 Wildcats heading into Wednesday action and posted a career high 28 points against North Central on Tuesday.  Gunn is teammates with IU class of 2021 quarterback signee Donaven McCulley.

A high level athlete, Gunn is a threat to score from all three levels, and has good length that he uses to make an impact on the defensive end.  Gunn could play the two or three at the college level.

A 4-star recruit, Gunn is currently ranked No. 101 nationally by the 247Sports Composite.  He is the No. 11 shooting guard according to that same service.

Kansas State, Xavier, Cincinnati and Missouri are some of the other high majors heavily involved in Gunn’s recruitment.

IU head coach Archie Miller and assistant Tom Ostrom have both been closely involved with Gunn’s recruitment since the summer.

Indiana does not have any commits in the class of 2022.
