Now, I have been to several recruiting events similar to this, but there were definitely a few things that were different this time.
- There were six IU students there and only ONE high school recruit.
- The Dean of the business school was there.
- The recruit's parents were there.
- Coach Tom Crean and two of his staff were there.
After eating breakfast with Cody, his family, the Dean, Coach Crean, and a few of his staff, the IU students spent some time with just Cody, talking about life at IU and at the business school. Cody is a great student as well as a basketball player, and he and his family are all genuinely good people.
This was Cody's last college visit, as he had three official visits - Butler, North Carolina, and IU. Hopefully he will choose to come to IU (signing day begins next month). But even if he doesn't, he is a great kid who I am sure will be successful wherever he chooses to take his talents.
Also, Kara and I had a chance to stop by the new basketball practicing facility - Cook Hall. Here are a few pictures that I didn't take (idsnews.com and xibitz.com)
