Is Shrewsberry a good recruiter or is he selling guaranteed PT to a bunch of guys that are low hanging fruit? Could be both I guess.

Too early to tell but I expect this to be ND’s way of recruiting moving forward. Taking transfers more often than true freshman. I think you will see a lot of mid programs do that.

They're fairly low hanging fruit IE not heavily pursued elsewhere. But they all fit the mold for the Indiana centric roster Shrews wants to build. Should help make NDBB more intriguing throughout the state, even at the bigger Indy schools that don't scream ND feeder.

Not sure you've seen who's he got OVing in the coming weeks, but it's all top 150 guys and even a 5 star. Maybe he's selling PT, but it's working so who cares.

Why can MBB get undergrad xfers but football can’t? I know it gets bandied about on the boards a decent amount, but what the hell is the difference from an admissions standpoint? MBB has taken dudes from Seton Hall and Penn State. Why can’t football ink an undergrad or two?

Kudos to Coach Shrews for hitting the recruiting trail and putting together a roster for this up and coming season.

I am more impressed with the future visits. Whatever he is selling to these kids they are buying in, especially in such a short time.

Excited to see what the hire of Ryan Owens will do for ND basketball. He seems well respected and has deep roots in the Indy area. Could go a long way in seeing a substantial uptick in recruiting.

Very, VERY underrated hire. The Indy Heat/Gym Rats program pretty consistently has the best HS players in the state in their program.

I mean there’s no way…is there? If Shrews somehow lands this dude, crown him. IU and Purdue are HARD after this kid.

Another Indiana kid I wish they’d kick the tires on is Joey Hart from Linton down near Terre Haute. He was a UCF signee, but got released and has visited UK and IU recently.

Hate that damn sign. Mocked me every time they kicked our ass in football when I was coaching in that neck of the woods.
That’s some deep dark ass backwoods down in Greene county friend. Also I can’t say that I actually liked Linton few times I have drove through and one time I made a point to visit it for a bit

lol.........Grandparents lived in Dugger. Saw that sign many a times back in the 60's.
I coached at North Central in Farmersburg when I was a student at ISU. Spent a lot of time in Sullivan County. We used to go party out near Dugger in some of the old quarries/surface mines that had been filled with water.

Shrews and Co recruiting Indiana hard is a breath of fresh air.
This is a huge win for ND basketball. Why Brey didn't recruit Indiana more is a head scratcher. Brey got lucky in getting Blake Wesley, if there was no COVID I think he would've ended up at Louisville.

Those are everywhere in that area. My grandpa was a coal miner. Survived a cave in, but black lung disease got him in 62.

Union High in Dugger turned out an all star in Brody Boyd in 2000. #5 scorer in Indiana HS history. Led the state in scoring his Jr and Sr years. Played for Iowa and is among the leaders on a couple of records.
