Hoosier signee Ron Patterson will reportedly not be attending Indiana in 2012-13

Aug 15, 2012, 4:08 PM EDT

Ron Patterson, one member of Indiana’s highly anticipated freshman class that is set to come to campus in the fall, will not be wearing a Hoosiers uniform in 2012-13, multiple outlets are now reporting.

Patterson is a Top-150 recruit from Indianapolis who averaged 18.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.5 steals per game this past season at Broad Ripple HS (Ind.).

According to multiple reports, Patterson’s inability to academically qualify at Indiana could be the motivating factor behind the announcement and now he will weigh prep school and junior college options for next season. He was deemed a full qualifier by the NCAA.

He originally committed to Indiana in August of 2010.

This news comes on the same day that the Hoosiers were celebrating their continued fan support, selling out over 12,000 student season tickets at Assembly Hall for this upcoming season.

Below is a video of Indiana head coach Tom Crean talking about Patterson’s possible impact with the Hoosiers:

    imforbigblue… It’s “You’re” not “Your” in the context you are attempting to use. The irony that you are referencing a post calling a high school student a “moron” while making an elementary level mistake is fitting for a troll.

    IU is the Vegas favorite to win the Title, possibly #1, and the B10 favorite so let’s bring the derogatory remarks down a peg.

    Ron would have been about 10-11 in the Rotation so this is hardly a major loss. It also frees up IU’s Scholarship situation which needed to be resolved by Monday and is now a non-issue with this move.

    The job Crean has done to rebuild the Team GPA to one of the best in the Big Ten should also be noted. Bringing both the Academic standards and talent depth up to this level so rapidly is quite remarkable actually.

      I also think that it is ironic that you make grammatical and capitalization errors in your post which corrects the grammatical errors on another. What does that say about the writer? Posting comments correcting the grammar of another is fraught with the danger that others may look upon you as the moron. 😉

        should read ‘of’ another and not ‘on’ another. Damn autofill…

    “You are” is shortened as “you’re”, not “your”. Also a lot of people use what’s called punctuation when they complete a sentence. A period, exclamation point, or question mark for instance. They teach this in elementary school in Indiana. Apparently its part of the graduate work in Kentucky.

      Apparently you also failed grammar in elementary school in Indiana. The contraction for “it is” should be written “it’s” which does not indicate possession. We also tend to try and use sentences with nouns AND verbs here in Kentucky. 😉

    Imforbigblue messaging two negative things about two KIDS who are going to iu and Flordia just shows you how sick and fucked up in the head you are.. I know in your mind it’s ok cause iu thinks they OWN college basketball and because Flordia isn’t in the same league as Kentucky dominance even though Flordia has won one more nc this century than Kentucky. And don’t bring up academics or charterer cause Demarcus cousins never had any issue at kentucky and fact in your mind all the Kentucky players are probably perfect little angels..
    Anyways god bless you and what ever mental illness you have. I pray it can be cured you sick fuck
