Five-star striker Trayce Jackson-Davis, a tall man from Center Grove High School, Indiana, announced his commitment to Indiana on Friday afternoon, bringing Archie Miller and his staff received another solid recruited in the 2019 class.
Jackson Davis, a 6 foot 8-post player, is 247 Sports & # 166 . -ranked players in the country and ESPNs 17 recruited recruit. Jackson-Davis also reflected on the state of Michigan and UCLA.
He will work with his lawyer Armaan Franklin next year in Bloomington. The two commits competed against each other on Friday night at Center Grove, and both Franklin and Jackson-Davis discussed the game and their relationship after the competition.
Also the official Twitter account of Indiana confirmed the message . suggesting that Jackson-Davis has already signed in addition to the verbal pledge. Jackson-Davis had previously said that he would not commit during the early contract period.

Jackson Davis is unusual despite its lack of high-end size clever and versatile for a big man. Already 230 pounds, the Lefty has a size and strength advantage over almost every high school center it faces, and will probably be able to move many college kids forward. He can put the ball on the deck and fit, though he is probably not comfortable enough to serve as a primary initiator or offensive catalyst. He is clever inside, with hooks and forgeries that can upset defenders.
Yet, Jackson-Davis tends to float in some games and does not always dominate as his size suggests. In the match against the Cathedral on Friday, he showed little interest in defending beyond color, and was constantly struggling to assert himself at either end of the floor (though he rejected Franklin twice late in the game).
He probably will not be a one-and-done college player, and may not be the best player in his recruiting class. But that fact alone speaks for the talent Indiana will have on its squad next season, and Jackson-Davis will play an important role.
For more of Jackson-Davis' game, Inside the Hall has compiled his best high school material.
Note: Be on the lookout for a special edition of The Matchup in the podcast in the Brink Feed today. I interviewed Sam Vecenie about the planned prospects in Indiana's roster, and the name of Trayce appeared at the end of the episode.

IU defeats Northwestern, 68-66
The game was closer than fans and analysts would have expected, but Indiana drew victory over the game Northwest Saturday afternoon in the Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
Juwan Morgan, who left the game with an obvious injury to his right leg, led the Hoosiers with 17 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals. Romeo Langford added a team high of 20 points. Five rebounds, two steals and two blocks.
After Morgan left the match at 3:30 to play in the second half, Langford took over the track, scoring two goals in important baskets and major defensive games to secure IU's win. His defense efforts against Vic Law in the second half were the best he had seen at the end of the season, and his all-round game was the best in his Indiana career.
In the Hall and in the Assembly Call, you talked about postgame analysis with a game snack, reactions from players and coaches, instant analysis, post-game emails, and extensive post-game shows.

Where do IU is in early December?
With another (close) victory Indiana underpins the 6: 2 in this season. Playing with a conference game and another 19, the Hoosiers are unlikely to be at the level they would most expect for this season.
And that's fine.
With so much of the season still to play and the team still learning to play together, Indiana has plenty of time to discuss the basics that need to be mastered by the end of the year.
But the last two games have shown how far Indiana must go. The duke game was not close, and a good team should defeat Northwestern with more than a single basket. Given how Michigan, Maryland, Wisconsin and the rest of the conference play, Indiana will not be able to go through many more games. The schedule promises to be difficult.
Winning on the road and dealing with athletic, pressurized teams was a challenge for IU, though ball movements, defense and center-back all shone instantly. Only four more non-conference games are on the table, two of which are legitimate threats and mean a third loss for Indiana as a whole.
Two, however, are not a bad number for now.
Podcast on the Brink and The Assembly Call episodes have described what we've learned about Indiana so far this season.

Early Check-In for the Big Ten Conference Game
Michigan, Maryland, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Indiana all won their first conference games the season. with Nebraska, Ohio State, Illinois and Minnesota all playing on Sunday. Michigan was particularly impressive, beating Purdue 76-57 at home behind the strong efforts of Jordan Poole and Jon Teske. If the Wolverines continue to play at this speed, everyone else is in second place.
However, with every other Big Ten team making at least one mistake on the record this season, Indiana is currently in second place. It is too early, but no team has separated in the way of Michigan.
The coming weeks will be a chance for the Hoosiers to make a break for better or for worse.

Hoosiers in the NBA
Victor Oladipo is expected to miss an indefinite period with a sore right knee, the Pacers announced this week , Oladipo was on the way to another All-Star appearance with an average of 21.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.7 points at 44 percent. The Pacers are currently 13-9 and 3-3 without All Star.
Eric Gordon stays cold from the 3-point area while the Rockets stumble at the start of the season. With Chris Paul playing a supporting role, Gordon is being asked to play a leading role alongside reigning MVP James Harden, and his percentage of shooting reflects the overstretching of his side. His 2-point shooting, which reached a high career last season, has fallen by more than 10 percentage points. Houston needs something to bring it back down to elite levels set before a season, and a Gordon turnaround would be a useful starting point.
Despite changing to a bankroll following the arrival of Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, OG Anunoby will play more minutes and a greater role for the Toronto Raptors this season. The long-range shooting of Anunoby has subsided at the beginning of the year, but he is more aggressive in the arc and makes himself a little more evil than a year ago. The Raptors are looking to improve their shooting sometime before April, when Anunoby plays a central role in a long and prolific playoff run.
We should be careful not to overreact to any Troy Williams stint in the NBA All have traveled to the G-League or a free agency so far, but Williams has been in the last 11 games for the not terrible Sacramento Kings gained. The third-year wing lasts an average of over 15 minutes and six points per game and has helped to keep some crazy and fun Kings Bank units together. Sacramento's fast pace goes well with Williams as he concentrates on cutting into the alley and shooting without much restriction.
Cody Zeller left the Hornets' game against the Utah Jazz Friday Night with a left rib bruise and will be tagged today. Zeller, who missed a lot of time due to injury in the last two seasons, has scored more than nine points and five rebounds in 22 games – all starts – and Charlotte has outclassed his opponents by nearly five points per 100 possessions , Of course, all parties hope for a quick recovery.
Bonus: IU Football Advances in the College Cup
The IU Men's Football team defeated Notre Dame on Friday to earn another appearance in the College Cup – the 20 th in the program history. The Hoosiers will face Maryland on Friday, December 7, in Santa Barbara, California to earn a place in the national championship game.
