Hoops Recruiting Central: All quiet

Quick updates on 2014 forward Devin Robinson and 2015 G/F Malachi Richardson.

When a weekend comes to an end, we almost always have lots of recruiting updates to provide. After this one, though, it's mostly quiet on the Indiana recruiting front, at least as it pertains to the 2014 class.

The biggest news from the last few days is that Indiana is back in the mix for 2014 guard JaQuan Lyle, with whom I spoke on Friday. Lyle said he "definitely" plans to visit Bloomington after taking the SAT on Nov. 2.

Lyle, a five-star point guard, is an elite prospect that Indiana has been after for a long time. The Hoosiers were the first major school to offer Lyle a scholarship, and Tom Crean still has a good relationship with Lyle. He was previously committed to Louisville.

Lyle doesn't plan to sign until the spring, so there won't be a lot of news on that front for awhile. But Indiana appears to be in pretty good shape with the Evansville native.

There's still no timetable or anything new for 2014 forward Devin Robinson, who is done with his official visits and will choose from Indiana, Oklahoma State, Florida and Notre Dame.

Indiana assistant coach Kenny Johnson visited Robinson at his school in Virginia late last week. Will update you as soon as I know anything more there.

Malachi Richardson, a 2015 five-star forward, plans to wait at least another year to make his college decisions, according to multiple people close to the player. IU is the favorite to land Richardson and he had planned to make a decision within the next month, but he was encouraged by people close to him to wait, and that's now what he plans to do.

Richardson is Indiana's top target in the 2015 class, and he has been for some time. Richardson has visited Bloomington twice already, including for Hoosier Hysteria earlier this month.

That's all for today. Not at on of new info, but that's how things currently stand with those three prospects.
