The 2012 recruiting class for the Indiana Hoosiers was one of their best ever.
The class ranked No. 5 in the country, according to Rivals.com.
The main reason for this was because the Hoosiers received commitments from three of the top-50 players of the class, which included PG Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell (ranked No. 19), SF Jeremy Hollowell (No. 41) and PF Hanner Mosquera-Perea (No. 43).
SG Ron Patterson, Rivals.com's No. 143-ranked prospect, was ruled ineligible for the Hoosiers due to grades.
Now, Patterson will graduate in 2013 at the Brewster Academy and has received offers from Xavier, SMU, Villanova and Kansas State.
The fourth and final member of this year's freshmen class is 7'0" center Peter Jurkin (wearing No. 42), who might not have an immediate impact on the court like the other three freshmen, but who is a project in the making.
Even with the loss of Patterson, these four freshmen will have different roles in trying to help head coach Tom Crean and the rest of the Hoosiers in their pursuit of a national title.
