It’s official: Ebanks picks Indiana

Devin Ebanks, a 6-8 wing forward from New York City has given a verbal commitment to Indiana.

He made the announcement today at the Rumble In the Bronx tournament at Fordham University. He chose the Hoosiers over Miami, his early favorite, and Rutgers, which made a late run.

Indiana managed to pry Ebanks away from the East Coast despite jumping into the recruitment relatively late in the process. Rob Senderoff was the lead recruiter and a team effort — including incoming freshman Eric Gordon — was used to sway Ebanks on his trip to Bloomington for the adidas May Classic.

Ebanks, ranked in the top 15 by most recruiting services, joins top 100 prospects Bud Mackey of Scott County, Kentucky and Eshaunte Jones of Fort Wayne in Kelvin Sampson’s second full class since coming to Indiana.


  1. Congratulations to Coach Sampson!

    Has anybody heard anything about Ratliff breaking his right

  2. IU fan,

    Ratliff has broken his right wrist and it’s expected to be a couple of months before he can play basketball again. I saw him at the Indiana senior-junior all-star exhibition at Edgewood Wednesday with his right arm in a sling.

  3. Doug,

    First off, the coverage is great. I’m glad to see the summer reports. I’ve heard from a somewhat reliable source the Mackey will be attending UK’s summer camp. Is there any sense that the regime change down south will affect his commitment?

  4. Sorry, didn’t self-edit very well there. I’ve heard that Mackey will be at UK’s summer camp.
