Abraham visit expected Tuesday

Moses Abraham will likely take his visit to Indiana on Tuesday, a source close to the situation said Thursday, confirming a report by Scout.com.

The 6-foot-9 senior forward from Nigeria, currently playing for Progressive Christian Academy in Temple Hills, Md., is also expected to play in the Kentucky Derby Festival All=Star Classic on April 10 in Louisville, Ky., the source said.

Abraham, a four-star recruit, was expected to announce his decision between Georgetown and Indiana earlier this week, but pushed it back in part to take this visit. He has also visited Georgetown, Maryland and Tennessee.

  1. This is great news. I think this is the key to get him on campus to see AH and the new Cook Hall.

  2. Great news. The students will be back and I’m sure they will welcome him very well. Hopefully the weather will be great. I am confident that not only will the campus impress him, but our players are a classy bunch that will only help our case. We need to land this kid, so we can tap into his gaurdian’s (Bancore) future prospects. But, even if we dont get MOAB this time around, hopefully Bancore will be keep IU in mind next time around.

  3. 60 degrees is the forecast for Tuesday. There should be buds on the trees and a few blooming flowers. Campus will be looking clean and beautiful as always. There also should be a few damsels in spring attire already for Moses to daydream about; although I am not suggesting we employ Lane Kiffin tactics.

    My only hope would be that Crean could blindfold Moses on the drive from Indy, to shelter his eyes from Mooresville, Martinsville, and all the other “villes” on the journey through the Heart of Whiteness.

  4. Husky Tom-

    I hope you’re right with that forecast..Sure sounds like a lovely day for Crean to stroll the campus with Moses…A perfect day for golden fried chicken, tub of homemade potato salad, and checkered napkins..Wait! Maybe we should pray for rain!…?…Beware a 4guard picnic!

  5. I will personally come sweep the streets, wash the windows or any such menial task if it will make a difference.

  6. Former Hoosier, Armon Bassett, gave IU possibly the best assist of his career by leading OU over Georgetown tonight. If you’re Moses Abraham, you’ve got to believe that helping restore IU to it’s former glory is more appealing than joining a GU team that will consistantly make it to the Big Dance, but will rarely make it to/past the Sweet 16. Moses, you have found your home in Bloomington, and every true blue…err Crimson…IU fan will embrace your arrival and support you throughout your career. Commit to IU next Tuesday (3/23), you won’t regret it!

  7. The thought of a 4 year sentence in Wash, DC versus the beauty of southwest IN – there is just no comparison. IU is where Moses belongs.

  8. Higgi,

    It also gives JT3 a chance to seriously recruit Abraham now. He doesn’t have a NCAA tournament to worry about anymore.

  9. You’re right Jubilee, but the one statement he won’t be proud to say to future recruits is they got upset by a 14 seed.

  10. Jubilee…North Carolina, UCLA, Arizona, Memphis, et al, also didn’t make the tourney. Indiana is basketball royalty, and Moses Abraham will understand that once he sees the 5 National Championship banners and experiences the excitement from the Hoosier faithful. You are right that JT3 will have more time to plead his case, but it should ring a little hollow after getting blown out by #14 seed Ohio.
