Indiana got its second commitment in the 2015 class on Tuesday night when forward Ogugua "O.G." Anunoby gave his verbal pledge to Tom Crean and the Hoosiers.

Anunoby, a 6-foot-8 forward from Jefferson City, Mo., joins forward Juwan Morgan in IU's recruiting class. Anunoby, a three-star prospect, was also considering Iowa, Ole Miss, Georgia and Gonzaga.

Athletic and versatile, Anunoby is still a bit raw from a skill set perspective, which is why he is currently unranked. But he's a talented kid who can step in to defend and block shots from day one and should turn into a very productive player down the road.

Anunoby gives the Hoosiers so much-needed size and length on the front line, their primary need in 2015. Adding two such players in just a month's time is a great thing for Indiana.

Indiana first saw Anunoby over the summer while watching 2015 center Nick Marshall with Team Thad, and had almost immediate interest. The Hoosiers got Anunoby's final official visit the weekend of Oct. 3.

We will have more on Anunoby's commitment later, but in the meantime, you can watch some highlights of the newest Hoosier in the embedded video player below.
