Indiana grabs commitment from prep school center (VIDEO)

Apr 18, 2014, 7:31 PM EST

Indiana has lost a couple of players this offseason with Noah Vonleh entering the 2014 NBA Draft and transfers to Jeremy Hollowell and Austin Etherington, but the Hoosiers and head coach Tom Crean picked up a commitment on Friday evening when Westwind Prep center Jeremiah April pledged to play in the Big Ten.

The 6-foot-10 April took to Twitter to make his announcement.

After spending his high school years at Joy Christian in Phoenix, April opted to do a postgrad year at Westwind Prep after originally being a 2013 recruit. April joins shooting guards James Blackmon and Robert Johnson and forward Max Hoetzel in Indiana’s 2014 recruiting haul.

    Some much needed size to the lineup

    unless he gets hurt should be the stating center for the hoosiers next season. instant upgrade over what they have now.

    I wouldn’t say instant upgrade, Davis is undersized but is very skilled in the post and HMP really hasn’t gotten the chance to shine. Also Cunnighams decision still to come.

      last year was hmp ‘s chance to shine if he ever was since he had zero competition once the fisher kid washed out and left the program. davis has the potential to be a good player but do you really want a 6-8 kid playing the center position for you? sorry but if he can play 5 min. without picking up 3 fouls then he is an instant upgrade for the program.
