A few recruiting notes to pass along (mostly basketball and some football):
*Ben Davis wing Aaron Henry (2018) picked up his second Division I offer Monday, from Indiana State. I wrote about the 6-5 Henry recently. He was offered by IUPUI last fall and has taken visits this month to Butler and Indiana State.
*Tindley guard Eric Hunter (2018) continued to pick up offers, most recently from Ball State, IPFW and Toledo in the past week. The 6-2 Hunter was previously offered by IUPUI, Kent State and Xavier. He averaged 24.6 points and 7.0 rebounds as a sophomore.
*Ball State also offered 2018 in-state players Gavin Bizeau of Plainfield, Howe’s Tony Hopkins, Fort Wayne South Side’s Austin Boucher (who has since transferred to Fort Wayne North Side) and Terre Haute South’s Deavion Washington. The 6-5 Hopkins was also offered by New Orleans and Division II Tampa.
*Noblesville’s John Kiser will walk on to the Valparaiso basketball team. The 6-5 Kiser averaged 21.2 points and 6.9 rebounds as a senior.
