Bloomington – Unofficially speaking, it's been a busy weekend for IU Coach Tom Crean.

While the first-year Hoosier coach is unable to make his way out of his Assembly Hall office to watch the Adidas May Classic, he has been welcoming in a steady stream of recruits for unofficial visits this weekend. Friday night's list of visitors included verbal commit Bobby Capobianco, Georgetown transfer Jeremiah Rivers, and Eureka, Ill., forward Jordan Prosser.

Prosser, a member of the Indiana Elite-One squad that knocked off the 43 Hoops AAU squad 66-52 Saturday morning at Assembly Hall, arrived in Bloomington Friday night. He said he had a chance to sit down with Crean and his staff, watch film and talk about the IU program. He said he spent a couple of hours on the visit.

"I had seen the campus before, but since he's here now, I like him a lot," said Prosser, who averaged 20 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks as a junior.

Indiana is one of a handful of schools showing interest in the 6-8, 205-pounder. He said he's also been hearing from Purdue, Wisconsin, Iowa, Texas A&M, Baylor and Bradley.

Prosser is one of a handful of talented big men on the Indiana Elite-One squad, along with Duke-bound Mason Plumlee, IU-bound Bobby Capobianco, and top-50 forward Stephan Van Treese. It's a team that also features Purdue-bound guard D.J. Byrd and Bloomington (Ind.) South guard Jordan Hulls, who has recently received scholarship offers from Indiana and Purdue.

"It's fun playing with this group because you get a lot of coaches coming to see you play," Prosser said. "We all know that we'll probably end up playing against each other in college."

With a couple of his AAU teammates already committed to top-flight programs, Prosser said he plans on getting serious about weighing his options soon as well. Taking another look at Indiana and sitting down with Crean was part of that.

"I think I'm going to take some more visits pretty soon," Prosser said, "We're out of school next week, so me and my dad can take some more visits and narrow it down and find out how interested some of the school are in me." Top Stories
