With the second live recruiting period in June wrapping up over the weekend, the Indiana basketball staff was on hand watching many top prospects.

While the Indiana basketball staff was busy taking in as many events as they could to end the month of June, there was a new name that popped up on the Indiana recruiting radar.

Names like Caleb Love, R.J. Davis, Anthony Leal, and Trey Galloway have headlined the backcourt recruitment in the 2020 class, but a new name has been tied to the Hoosiers.

Lynn Greer III of Roman Catholic (Pa.) has seen his recruitment heat up in the early stages of the summer months with multiple high major schools getting in contact with the 6-foot-3 guard.

Holding offers from Florida, Marquette, Oregon, Miami (FL.), Temple, Wake Forest, and Iowa amongst others, there are a couple of new schools that have caught Greer’s attention. Those programs include Villanova and Indiana, both of which have yet to extend an offer though.

Greer told Adam Zagoria this weekend that Florida, Miami, Wake Forest, Villanova and Indiana were the five schools recruiting him the hardest.

Saying about his recruitment,

"“I don’t worry too much about who’s offering me,” Greer III said. “I just want to play my best basketball and whoever decides to offer me, they’ll offer me. The school I’ll go to will be the best fit for me.”"

Ranked No. 93 in the 2020 class according to 247Sports Composite rankings, Greer is scheduled to take an official visit to Florida September 7-9, according to Pat Lawless, but has no other visits scheduled as of now.

Villanova could become a major player in his recruitment if they were to offer. Having a history with the Roman Catholic program, Maalik Wayns (’09 Grad) a starter for Jay Wright for three seasons at Villanova, Villanova could potentially steal Greer from the other suitors.

As mentioned, the Hoosiers have yet to extend an offer to Greer but because of their continued communication, he could be a name to keep an eye on if Indiana loses out on guards such as Love and Davis.
