Thomas Bryant: Indiana recruiting me hardest

2015 big man Thomas Bryant told the Louisville Courier-Journal Indiana is recruiting him the hardest. Could he commit to the Hoosiers soon?

If Indiana misses on Thomas Bryant, it won't be for a lack of trying.

The 2015 big man told Steve Jones of the Louisville Courier-Journal that the Hoosiers are recruiting him the hardest at this point and that he hasn't heard from contenders Syracuse and Kentucky since January.

“They send me a ton of damn letters,” Bryant told Jones.

Bryant, a four-star prospect, visited Indiana last month for a home game against Michigan State. A day earlier, Syracuse was slapped with sanctions by the NCAA for issues that spanned more than 10 years. Among those sanctions was a reduction in scholarships for four years.

Bryant, a 6-foot-10 center, told Jones he believes there is a scholarship available for him at Syracuse, but he hasn't been in contact with the school recently.

Adding Bryant would likely make the Hoosiers a preseason top 15 team if everybody -- including Yogi Ferrell -- returns next season. They opened up scholarships for incoming freshmen Juwan Morgan and O.G. Anunoby when Stanford Robinson and Max Hoetzel decided to transfer last week. If Bryant signed, Indiana would have to open up another scholarship.

You can watch Bryant and Huntington Prep on television this week during the Dick's Sporting Goods High School National Championship in New York City. Bryant's game will be shown at 2 p.m. Thursday on ESPNU. Top Stories
