Emmitt Holt Commits To Indiana

Emmit Holt of Vermont Academy has given a verbal commitment to play his college basketball for head coach Tom Crean and Indiana University.

Holt, a 6'7 power forward, was set to do a postgraduate season at Vermont Academy until Indiana came calling to bring him in with the 2014 recruiting class.

Holt averaged 19.8 points and 14.6 rebounds per contest this past season as a senior at Webster Schroeder High School (NY).

Holt had narrowed down his list of collegiate possibilities as a 2015 recruit to t. Joseph’s, George Washington, Siena, Towson, Rice, Quinnipiac, Northeastern, St. Bonaventure, Canisius and Duquesne ahead of Indiana jumping in for 2014.

Holt brings a 7'3 wingspan, solid post skills and a nice degree of upside potential. He will add depth to an Indiana frontcourt that is thin with 6'10 Luke Fischer transferring to Marquette and Noah Vonleh leaving for the NBA.

Princeton Lands Devin Cannady

Class of 2015 Mishawaka Marian star Devin Cannady has given a verbal commitment to play his college basketball in the Ivy League at Princeton.

Cannady, a 6'2 guard, ranks among the top 2015 prospects in the state of Indiana. He enhanced his recruiting stock by showing an ability to be more of a ball-distributor as opposed to scoring.

Cannady, who also quarterbacks the football team, officially visited the Princeton campus this past weekend ahead of his commitment.

Cannady competed on the travel team circuit with the Spiece Indy Heat.

Kasongo Visit To Indiana Cancelled

Ray Kasongo will not be visiting Indiana University as expected according to Mike Miller of the Bloomington Herald-Times.

Kasongo, a 6'9 power forward, was set to attend Oregon until he was denied admission to the school. A number of other schools including LSU, Kansas, Memphis and California showed varying degrees of interest in Kasongo. It appears he will not have the necessary grade point average.

Kasongo was being eyed by the Hoosiers to bring some needed size and depth to their frontcourt. The Hoosiers will now focus their attention on 6'7 Emmit Holt (Vermont Academy).

Holt was set to do a postgraduate year, but Indiana has recruited the 4-man with 7'2 wingspan as a 2014, and have him set to arrive on campus on Monday.
