Rawle Alkins talks recruiting, Indiana

2016 guard Rawle Alkins is playing with the NY Rens in the adidas Super 64 in Vegas.

Rawle Alkins was the first recruit new Indiana assistant Chuck Martin targeted his first week on the job, and Martin continues to put in work in the pursuit of the elite 2016 guard.

Martin and Indiana coach Tom Crean watched Alkins and his NY Rens AAU team Thursday in Las Vegas as they continue to make him a priority in 2016.

Alkins, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound guard from Christ The King High School in Brooklyn, is the 29th-ranked player in the 2016 class and a four-star target.

Alkins had 18 points and six rebounds in the Rens' loss to Garner Road on Thursday. On one play, he drove past two defenders and threw down an emphatic dunk right in front of Crean and Martin. When Alkins landed, he stared at Martin, then turned and ran back.

"Their head coach was at the game so that's good," Alkins told AllHoosiers.com. "Mostly every head coach was at that game.

"I mean all the schools are even. All these schools say the same stuff but hopefully by the end of this tournament my list will increase and my interest will turn into offers."

Alkins currently owns offers from Cincinnati, George Washington, Indiana, Louisville, Miami, Minnesota, N.C. State, Rutgers, Seton Hall, South Florida and Villanova.

He said he doesn't currently have any plans for visits in August but would like to take a couple if he can.
