We aren't even recruiting him.
That's what I hear, but maybe should reconsider and give another look. Time will tell. I am interested what happens when he hits college.
I agree ...obviously I want a balanced roster but if we don’t get our primary targets and have a slot there are worse ways to use a scholarship
Butler running out of scholarships with recent verbal commits. Perhaps the Force is failing Luke.

Hey ...if we get all our main guys ( which pierce is definitely one of them ) and there is no room for Luke Brown I want to stress that as a dawg fan I’m FINE with that ( which says a lot since you guys know I’m pretty fanatical about brown ). If we end up not getting everyone we want and we have a slot somewhere I think he’s worth a look but I’m ecstatic about Thomas! Big signing great job coach Jordan
Sick to my stomach for our program and especially our seniors. Not a fair outcome for them...wish a delay of some sort would have at least been attempted even if that meant having to secure small venues and limit or restrict attendance to them. If anyone needs a basketball fix like me I believe we are the only state within the four immediately surrounding us still definitely ( as of now ) conducting our high school tournament. Ihsaatv.org is broadcasting several regional matchups this Saturday and they are free if you watch them live as opposed to via replay ...they had originally slated only 3 of the 16 sectionals ( Blackford was the 2A selection ) but they now indicate they will attempt to add coverage for more since attendance is limited to 75. I’ll be attending the Blackford regional , for anyone else going to the games across the state stay safe and enjoy as best you are able under the circumstances ...best of luck to all participants and to everyone staying healthy
UPDATE: Tournament suspended/postponed with noon announcement
You make me dislike a kid in high school when no one should ever dislike a high school basketball player strictly because of your posts

Dude didn't even mention Luke Brown. Stop trolling.
The whole thread is about him jackass. Wasn’t just his last post I’m talking about.

Yikes ...sorry didn’t mean to strike a nerve ...I won’t post judgment on anyone who would dislike a high school kid for any reason but since you brought up the topic and I’m sports deprived here is an update for anyone not severely lacking objectivity :
Tough to find anything to be happy about ...disappointed for all college and high school athletes ....one decent bit of news for next year ...in addition to playing at new Albany Blackford was invited to the HOF classic and will play what would have likely been the final four of 2A had regional played out only swapping Linton Stockton for barr Reeve.....if anyone has doubts about Luke playing against high caliber teams then check out that tournament ....Blackhawk Christian BR and shanandoah can play against any team from any class and acquit themselves especially next year as SHS and BR return their top 3 scorers each ( barr Reeve essentially replaces Keegan oniel with Curt hopf )....should be a really fun 3 games and a good showcase for Luke hopf and furst
Thanks...sorry for causing trouble
End of year update :
-brown named Indiana junior all star
-Brown picked by IBCA to Supreme 15 underclassman
-brown selected all-state third team by AP...the 15 all-state players were made up of 9 seniors and 6 Juniors
- finishes season 66/40/90 ...second time he has finished a season 50/40/90 ( his freshman year he was the only player in the state out of over 4,000 varsity players and I haven’t found a second person to do it this year so he was one of few if not the only one )
-finishes first in scoring at 32.3 and 3rd in assists at 7.7 ( 11 assists off the state lead )
brown leaning towards taking offer from under armor rise team but the aau season is a serious question mark at this point
hope everyone is staying safe ! Hopefully we can get some basketball in at the end of summer !
Off The Recruiting Board. He’s a Hatter. Going south to Florida to play for “The Stetson Hatters.”
Go light it up for 20 points a night!!’
I think that would be a great barometer of why we didn't recruit him. Wish him the best of luck and happy to put this thread in the archives.
Doyel wrote a subscriber only article on Brown, so I can’t link. Doyel appears to be a big fan and really played up the underdog aspect. Mentions IU, PU and BU never showed much interest. Good luck to the kid.
Meh, I just imagine that IU/Butler/Notre Dame is Gregg Doyel's burner account on here, therefore I don't have to read the article... Welcome to the Archives he who was never recruited...
Doyel has had a thing for Luke since he was a freshman. Pretty sure he had a thing for Cooper Neese as well. He had his shot, and realized very quickly he was over his head. Best of luck with Luke at Stetson.

Luke had his shortcomings defensively and getting to the basket. His role at Stetson will change. His strengths are ballhandling and passing.
Who knows? Maybe he will be a sought after grad transfer in 4 years!
