Crispus Attucks wing and 2023 recruit Jalen Hooks has set June 22 as the date for his unofficial visit to Indiana, according to a post on the Crispus Attucks basketball program for boys on Twitter.
Hooks will also unofficially visit Cincinnati on June 21st and Pittsburgh on June 28th, according to the Post.
The 6-foot-7, 195-pound Hooks is a four-star recruit and the No. 55 player in the 2023 class according to 247Sports.com. He averaged 11.1 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3rd , 3 assists and 1.7 steals for Crispus Attucks in the second year of the 2020/21 season. Indiana hasn’t offered him a scholarship yet, but has shown constant interest for over a year. He has eight reported scholarship offers, including offers from DePaul, Georgia, Illinois, LSU, Marquette, and Xavier, according to 247Sports.com.
Indiana has had a dialogue with Hooks that goes back to the previous coaching staff. He recently told The Daily Hoosier that he sees a valuable resource in new IU coach and 25-year-old NBA coach Mike Woodson.
“I’m glad he decided to take it down a bit and practice college basketball, and I’m glad he’s here,” Hooks said of Woodson.
Indiana also expects visits to state striker Xavier Booker (June 23) and guard Jalen Hood-Schifino (June 28) in late June from 2023.
