Bishop Chatard’s Fagan commits to IU as preferred walk-on

Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star reports that Joe Fagan, a 6-foot-4 guard from Bishop Chatard, has committed to Indiana as a preferred walk-on for the Class of 2013.

Fagan is averaging 14.1 points and 7.0 rebounds, but has only played eight games this season because of a separated shoulder.

  1. How many walkons are you allowed to have. Bayt, the kid from Maryland and now him. Plus the kids currently on the roster. Whats the rule on that.

  2. Howard, Wayer, Smith, Marlin, Bayt, Fagan, and Calomeris…6 Hoosiers and a Maryland guy. A nice group of them considering two were at D-1 schools, and a couple more could have played D-1 somewhere. Unless something changes, we will have 20 players next year! 23 if you count the oversignees 😉

  3. Hahaha I go to the same school as joe and his locker is a few down from mine! Haha so funny he’s on the scoop! Great athlete, but he’s a total d**k though!

  4. Joe’s coach at Chatard is Travis Daugherty, who also coached Derek Elston at Tipton. Plus, he was a high school classmate of mine…the man knows his basketball.

  5. Sorry to hear that Lil Hoosier. If I could root for you instead of him, I would. Keep trucking little man…

    A lot of big time athletes are coddled and selfish, and the coach/parents just see the positive side of Eddie Haskell while the classmates have to deal with his crap in the halls.

  6. It’s a real balancing act with stellar athletes. It’s only been on the last few years that the public has seen behind the curtain on Michael Jordan to see what a d*%k he is as a person. That’s really sad. I’m sure some of what made him great made him, well, not so great.

    Then you have guys like Steve Nash, who is an exemplary human being.

    Some folks handle it, some don’t.

  7. Hard to stay humble when millions are thrown at you.

    Bob Love…Chicago Bull of the 1970s…If you want the story of a truly decent man that persevered. There was a great piece on the Today Show done about 10 years ago(it was only about 5 or 6 minutes in length, but it told of things I never knew about “Butterbean” Love). After a very successful NBA career, Bob Love had to start from a bottom point most could never dig themselves out of…I have the Today Show story on a video tape somewhere but I’ve never been able to find it on the internet or YouTube.

  8. He has? Season’s over. Pack it up. Fire Crean. Fold the program. Blow up Assembly Hall.

    IU by 5 tomorrow.
