The Indiana basketball program is still trying to secure one last commitment in the 2020 class and Archie Miller visited the target on Sunday afternoon.
There are only three more days of the early sighting period for the class of 2020 targets to officially sign their national letter of intent and the Indiana basketball program is doing everything it can to secure a fourth signing in the class.
Archie Miller and the Hoosiers officially signed their three current commitments in the class at the end of last week in Anthony Leal, Jordan Geronimo, and Trey Galloway, and that leaves Dawson Garcia as the last class of 2020 target for Indiana.
Garcia, who is set to announce on Nov 20 – the last day of the early signing period, will have two in-home visits on Sunday, one from Indiana and the other from Memphis, per multiple reports. The five-star recruit is also considering Minnesota and Marquette in addition to the Hoosiers and Tigers.
Indiana hosted Garcia for an official visit a couple of weeks ago and by all signs, Garcia is ‘down’ to the Hoosiers and Marquette, though the Golden Gophers and Penny Hardaway’s Tigers still remain in the mix.
Garcia would be a tremendous pickup for the Hoosiers as his ability to play alongside Trayce Jackson-Davis in the front court would be a lethal combination.
With a need for a big man in the coming classes, a Garcia commitment would be great, not only for the season outlook, but also for fans to see that Archie Miller can compete with the best when trying to land top out-of-state targets, something he hasn’t put much of an emphasis on since taking the Indiana job.
When talking about his visit to Bloomington in a recent interview, Garcia shared what it is about the Indiana program that has him intrigued.
“It [the visit] was great. Going there with Trey [Galloway] and Anthony [Leal]…. I have a great relationship with them, as well as the other guys on the team,” Said Garcia. “I felt at home really. Their fan base, definitely the best fan base recruiting me right now.”
With a decision coming on Wednesday, if Garcia does indeed choose the Hoosiers, Indiana’s 2020 class ranking would jump from No. 20 all the way up to No. 5 in the nation, per 247Sports.
