Traylor visiting Oklahoma State

Indiana target Jamari Traylor, who at the moment is the only Hoosier target known to have a scholarship offer for the Class of 2011, is visiting Oklahoma State this weekend according to Adam Zagoria’s blog.

The report also says that Traylor will visit Kansas soon, but that there has not yet been a date set.

In the report, Indiana is not mentioned as one of the schools still in the mix for Traylor’s services. We don’t know yet if there’s some reason for that or if IU was just left out accidentally. Have a call in to IMG Academies basketball director Andy Borman to try to find out.

UPDATE, 2:34 p.m.: Zagoria tweeted to clarify that Traylor took an unofficial to IU and is still involved.

UPDATE, 3:03 p.m.: Borman returned a phone call to say that Indiana is still in the mix. Not mentioning the Hoosiers to Zagoria was accidental. “Indiana is still very much in play for Jamari,” Borman said.

  1. Sorry if this has already been touched upon, but Ok St. and Karron Johnson parted ways, JUCO PF any chance? Not sure why they both split either, TIA

  2. Well, I always take a school being forgotten as a school that must not truly be in the running. If IU was at or near the top of his list, how does someone forget the school? Seems odd to me.

  3. It wasn’t the kid talking, it wasn’t even the coach really, it was the basketball director at IMG, which was obviously a school that was created with the express purpose of turning talented high school athletes into high-level college prospects. There are a lot of names for Borman to keep in mind. He was pretty adamant when I finally talked to him that Traylor is interested in IU.

  4. I wouldn’t get too worried. IU has a huge upside for Traylor — he could be a huge part of bringing a program from the ashes back to it’s rightful place amongst the most prominate basketball programs in college. Also, he will surely start immediately, with the 2012 incoming class he will have the opportunity to move to a traditional power forward, in the mean time he can prove he can play center in addition as he prepares for the NBA. The only other real progam left in the mix that I would recommend to my child would be Kansas. Time will tell.
