Hoosier State Hoops: Potential IU Recruits for Remaining Scholarships

The Indiana Hoosiers, following a disappointing season, have seen three scholarship spots open up. Here are some transfers and recruits that Indiana has shown interest in to fill these spots.


Joey Brunk

Joey Brunk, an Indianapolis, Indiana native, played high school ball at Southport and his first two years of college at Butler. But, it was recently announced that he decided to put his name in the transfer portal and I believe he is the perfect for Indiana. Brunk  provides great size at 6-11, 230 pounds and will bring a physicality that is needed in Big Ten play. Last season, he played 18 minutes a night and scored about eight points a game. The opportunity to have more minutes in Indiana is very likely for Brunk, given the lack of front court depth due to Clifton Moore and Jake Forrester departing.

I feel that if the Brunk addition were to happen, Indiana would be in great shape for the future at the forward and center positions. I believe Indiana could have a top frontcourt in the Big Ten with Trayce Jackson Davis, Brunk, and De’Ron Davis bringing different styles of play to the paint.  Fans should want Brunk as much as the Hoosiers need him. 


Harlond Beverly

Harlond Beverly, a guard from Montverde Academy in Florida, could be a player to keep an eye on for the Hoosiers. He could bring some athleticism for the Hoosiers in a much needed way. The 6-foot-4 guard certainly can bring an edge to this team, but don’t expect the impact to happen immediately.

If Beverly were to come to Indiana, he would see limited playing time as a freshman and he might even ride the bench to start off, but his future would be bright. The addition of Beverly can give Indiana a very young back court. It could also leave Hoosiers fans excited about a team with sophomore Rob Phinisee, Junior Al Durham, and incoming freshman Armaan Franklin that can be crucial for the future.


Trendon Watford

I’m dreaming a little bit here with this 5-star prospect, but the opportunity to land Christian Watford’s brother could be magnificent for the Hoosiers. Jackson-Davis and Watford could lead to a phenomenal class for the Hoosiers. It is looking like Watford has Indiana in his top 5, but behind Alabama and Memphis, respectively.

My case for “Watford to Indiana” would be the opportunity to play with Jackson-Davis, which would be a great tandem for Coach Miller to utilize. Watford being an inside out scorer also gives the Hoosiers versatility and the fire power to make the loss of Romeo Langford not seem like as big of a deal.


Anthony Harris

Harris was originally committed to Virginia Tech, however he decided to reopen his recruitment as Coach Buzz Williams took the head coaching job at Texas A&M. Harris is a top-75 player in his class and the Hoosiers were interested in him before he committed to Virginia Tech.

Harris could bring explosiveness similar to Beverly as Coach Miller looks to build his team. Harris’s specialty is attacking the rim and the Hoosiers certainly could use speed at the guard position to compete with the likes of Cassius Winston and other top Big Ten guards. Right now, it seems Indiana may not be the favorite, but I would not be surprised if the Hoosiers try to make themselves known with the athletic guard.
