Indiana is showing interest in quite a few young prospects in the Chicago area. One of them is 2016 Hinsdale South center Barret Benson. He is the top low post prospect in the sophomore class in state because of his ability to score with his back to the basket, run the floor for his size, and rebound.
We spoke with Benson about his visit to Indiana over the weekend.
“We met with Coach Buckley at Cook Hall and headed into Assembly Hall for the main event. After Hoosier Hysteria we stayed around to eat afterwards. Talked with Coach Crean, his wife, and the academic advisor. Then headed back home after.”
During his time on campus what did he speak with the Hoosiers coaches about?
“How I liked the event and how school is going mainly.”
Benson discussed what impressed him about Indiana on the visit.
“You can really tell how much their fans genuinely care about basketball and how the coaches stress hard work is a huge part of the program.”
