How to recruit with a Rule-breaking Coach
It turns out Kelvin Sampson had one extra recruiting trick
up his sleeve. In addition to illegal phone calls from himself and his
assistants, Sampson offered prospects a letter of intent that allowed them to
bail if things went bad at Indiana.
Indiana AD Rick Greenspan has confirmed that at least two players are allowed
to not honor their letters of intent due to the changing of the coaching staff.
Provisions in their letters of intent had an "escape clause" related
to NCAA Tournament bans or a change of coaches according to Greenspan.
Speculation is the two recruits are Indiana's best two 2008 recruits, Devin
Ebanks and Terrell Holloway. Ebanks is a 5 Star 6'8" small forward out of
who is considered to be second best small forward in the country by Rivals.com.
Halloway is a 4 Star 6'0" point guard out of Cincinnati Harmony Community
how is the twentieth best ball handler in the class of 2008.
