The large screen behind Indiana coach Tom Crean in the above picture reads "experience." Unless, of course, the NCAA was trying to go very hip and "Xtreme" to court the kids and spelled it "xperience" intentionally.
Which we all highly doubt, I'm sure.
Either way, Crean has precious little "xperience" on the 2013-14 Hoosier team because his last two recruiting classes have been large ones. Only two scholarships are open for next season. One of those is already accounted for in the form of James Blackmon Jr., who verbally committed as a freshman.
Crean will undoubtedly keep trying for more than one player, anticipating the defections that have become routine for power programs throughout college basketball.
Several blue-chip prospects are still on the Hoosiers' radar. Read on for a look at nine of the best, presented in alphabetical order.
