BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana University men's basketball coach Tom Crean has announced that six student-athletes have signed a national letter of intent to play basketball and attend Indiana University beginning in the fall of 2013.
Joining the Hoosier program will be forward Devin Davis (Warren Central), forward/center Luke Fischer (Germantown, Wisc.), forward Collin Hartman (Cathedral), guard Stanford Robinson (Findlay Prep, Nev.), forward Noah Vonleh (New Hampton School), and forward Troy Williams (Oak Hill Academy). This group is rated as the No. 3 recruiting class in the country according to Rivals.com and Scout.com, and No. 5 by 247Sports.
"I know it's been a long while to get to this point, but we're very, very excited about this recruiting class for many reasons," said Crean. "A couple of the ones that really stand out, sometimes the metrics of the position change, but the criteria really doesn't, and the criteria that you want to have in your class above all else is that they win. Are they good people? Do they have really strong character? Are their upsides athletically and intelligence wise, but do they win? Are they year-round winners? Well, these six are. There is no question that they are. They are very well coached, and some we've had a chance to follow longer than others, but the bottom line is that they know how to be coached, they are being coached and they receive coaching; they absorb it, which is really important."
