Indiana Basketball: Midseason Report Cards for the Hoosiers' Freshmen

Indiana's 2012 basketball recruiting class was expected to push the veteran team over the top and return it to the Final Four.

The quartet of touted prospects, three of them members of the ESPN top 100, even arrived with a catchy and potent nickname: "The Movement."

Midway through their debut seasons, the rookies have yet to deliver even on the modest promise of quality depth, battling through NCAA suspensions and their own hesitancy to assert themselves as top players in the Big Ten.

Thanks to the veteran returning core, the Hoosiers aren't left staggering by the shaky youngsters, but coach Tom Crean will certainly demand greater improvement as March draws near.

These grades reflect how the players have performed during the season and the potential for future improvement. If the switch flips on at the right time, IU still has the potential to raise a sixth banner and one of these players can position himself for a run at All-Big Ten honors next season.
