IU basketball to have a large group of recruiting visitors for North Carolina game

Late evening tips during the school week typically aren’t a good match for recruiting visits.

But the appeal of Indiana’s game vs. North Carolina on Wednesday evening (9:15 p.m. / ESPN) is going to cause some tired eyes in more than a few classrooms tomorrow.

No. 10 IU is welcoming an impressive group of recruiting visitors for their Big Ten / ACC Challenge contest against the No. 18 Tar Heels.

Here are the two signees and six other prospects expected at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall this evening.  Indiana has offered all six of the players they haven’t signed, and are considered a legit contender for each of them.

(The Daily Hoosier reported most of tonight’s visitors in separate stories.  A couple additions are via 247Sports national analyst Travis Branham.  Stars and national rankings per 247Sports Composite).
