PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Scouts mention Indiana prospects

    Some interesting comments from a couple of the Future Stars guys who write a column for the Real Fans website called Trail Talk Recruiting News. Besides getting Harris' class wrong (he was a junior last season), the rest of the comments are interesting none-the-less.

    -- Another mid-major prospect is Bruce Johnson, a 6-6 forward from Austin (IN), who averaged 21.9 points a game last season. He works hard and can shoot well and has Southwest Missouri State, Evansville, Bowling Green, Louisville and Cincinnati making early inquiries.

    -- Indiana's Region -- the industrial Northwest part of the state -- was well represented as promising sophomores, 6-7 Mariel Harris of Gary West Side and 6-6 Marcellious Randolph of East Chicago Central, gave opponents fits. Both are long, athletic wings who play with great intensity and should be considered among the top 50 players nationally in their class.

    -- Another Indiana sophomore who shined was 6-9 Jared Jeffries of Bloomington North. Jeffries is another lanky big kid with guard skills. He's tough too. He took a viscous elbow to the mouth on the tournament's opening night, but played on with a gigantic swollen lip. Jeffries can do it all on the court and says he is wide-open school wise. Indiana has apparently already made a scholarship offer and if Jeffries holds off on committing he will be one of the nation's top recruiting targets in two years.
