The Indiana basketball program received an update on the possibility of five-star Khristian Lander reclassifying to the 2020 recruiting class.

It has been nearly a month since the Indiana basketball program received the commitment from class of 2021 five-star point guard Khristian Lander. During the past few weeks, there has been a lot of talk about the possibility of reclassifying to the 2020 class.

Lander, who has been open about it being a possibility, took to social media to address the topic and officially gave his take on what he wants to do.

Obviously there are a lot of factors that are in play moving forward. With a recruiting freeze for the college basketball world and schools more or less out of session for the time being, there are a lot of issues he may run into.

In a recent interview with Inside The Hall, Lander said he has ‘a full semester of English and I’ve got to take an economics or government class, so it’s not a whole lot’. With little to address before a possible enrollment at Indiana, it all comes down to whether to not he can fit that in with what is expected to be a shortened school year.

If Khristian Lander does make the jump to the 2020 class, he would join Anthony Leal, Trey Galloway and Jordan Geronimo. Lander is currently ranked No. 9 in the 2021 recruiting class and the No. 1 point guard in the country.

The Hoosiers, who will gladly take Khristian Lander and even prefer to have him in 2020, will have a lot of time to wait and process his potential decision. In the end, however, the current landscape of the country and college sports could make this decision “easier” for both sides.
