Indiana head coach Archie Miller and assistant Bruiser Flint reached back into their home state when IU offered class of 2021 shooting guard Jordan Longino on Wednesday.
The 6-foot-4 Philadelphia area product is the No. 61 player in the junior class and the No. 12 shooting guard according to the 247Sports Composite.
Pat Lawless was the first to report the news on Twitter.
Longino plays high school basketball at Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, Penn. where he averaged 22.9 points per game as a junior.
A highly efficient scorer, Longino shot 54.4 percent from the field overall for Germantown, including 41.5 percent from three-point range. He also made 80.6 percent of his attempts from the free throw line. Longino added 5.8 rebounds, 2 assists and .7 steals per contest for the Patriots during the 2019-20 campaign.
Playing for Philly Pride on the UAA circuit last summer, Longino averaged 10.5 points while shooting 39 percent overall and 33 percent from long distance.
Longino was also the Germantown starting quarterback this past season, and he led the team to a 7-2 overall record, throwing for almost 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns with just four interceptions.
Longino has offers from Villanova, Florida, Rhode Island, LaSalle, Marquette, Penn State and others. Villanova will be tough to beat in this recruitment, but Indiana has been involved for several months. He is looking to make a college decision this summer.
