It takes, apparently, two (coaches)

Cincinnati — Doug and I arrived at about the same time that Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson and assistant Ray McCallum pulled into the parking garage outside Fifth Third Arena.

McCallum may be here in the role of father as opposed to recruiter. His son Ray Jr. will play for the Indiana Elite Fort Wayne team.

It’s a nice setup here, with five courts running at the same time under the same roof. Makes it easy to watch a bunch of players throughout the day.

Plenty of other coaches here, too. Roy Williams of North Carolina is here doing his work. Big Ten guys include Matt Painter of Purdue and Ed DeChellis of Penn State.

On the court nearest to me right now, Evan Gordon is playing guard for an Indiana Elite entry. He’s the younger brother of Eric and a really sound player at this point. Like his brother, he’s just sophisticated in so many aspects. If he grows a few inches he’ll start to show up on major D-I radars. Looks like he’s more of a pure point guard than his brother.

Anyway, Tyler Zeller plays a game at noon. After that we should be able to speak to him about his summer.

Stay tuned, and let us know if you have any questions.


  1. What year is McCallum’s son? Are we gonna get him? I heard for some reason we might not.

    Why does it seem like the Zeller Family is anti-IU? Think we have a chance with this one?

  2. Jim I think you heard wrong about Jr. The only way he won’t attend IU is if his dad accepts another job and then I think it still depends on what job.
