Indiana has made a late addition that should help bolster its front line this coming season.
Emmitt Holt, a 6-foot-7 forward from New York, committed to IU on Wednesday. Holt had enrolled in prep school at Vermont Academy in an attempt to gain more exposure, but he will now enroll at IU and begin classes next week.
Holt took an official visit to Indiana on Monday.
Holt averaged 19.8 points and 14.6 rebounds per game for Webster High School last season and was a finalist for New York's Mr. Basketball award. He also blocked five shots per game.
Holt is a nice addition for the Hoosiers, who are very thin up front. Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Devin Davis are the only players with experience inside, and Mosquera-Perea has been inconsistent in his first two years in Bloomington.
Freshman center Jeremiah April, who Indiana signed late to help inside, sat out the entire five-game trip to Montreal last week due to an ankle injury.
We will have more on this story later.
