Nairn talks IU visit, timeline for decision

2014 guard Lourawls Nairn was in Bloomington for an official visit this weekend. How did it go?

If Lourawls Nairn had any questions about how he'd fit in if he committed to Indiana, he got answers this weekend.

Nairn, a 2014 guard from Bel Aire (Kans.), finished his official visits with a trip to Bloomington over the weekend. Nairn, a 5-foot-10 point guard, feels confident after his visit that he could co-exist with current point guard Yogi Ferrell.

"Yogi said we would be the fastest backcourt in the country," Nairn told AllHoosiers.com. "Coach [Tom Crean] thinks we could play together also because he played three guards and two point guards last year."

Nairn is also considering Michigan State, Oklahoma and Minnesota. The Spartans have an especially appealing situation given that Keith Appling would be gone by the time Nairn arrived in East Lansing.

But Indiana made it clear to Nairn on his visit over the weekend that it had a lot to offer, too.

"Coach Crean told me he didn't recruit me as a backup point guard," Nairn said. "Anywhere I go, I'm gonna have to compete. It won't be given to me, I gotta go take what I want."

Nairn arrived in Bloomington late Friday because his flight out of Oklahoma was delayed twice. He was hosted by Indiana freshman Noah Vonleh, and attended the football game against Missouri on Saturday night.

"Me and the coaches had some great conversations at the football game," Nairn said.

Like most recruits, Nairn also watched a team workout and participated in open gym.

"I didn't shoot the ball well, but I did push the ball and got to my strengths," Nairn said. "I did the things I normally did."

Nairn has now taken all of his visits and hopes to make a decision soon. He said it won't take any more than three weeks and that he will probably make an announcement in "about two weeks."

"It's gonna be a really tough decision to make," Nairn said.
