"Our staff is excited about this 2017-18 recruiting class. This is our first recruiting class here at IU South Bend, and we believe we are headed in the right direction. Our initial plan was to add quality depth because we believe that is what this program is missing. We plan to add a few more missing pieces to the puzzle, but are pleased to have this group on board early. In order to build what we are trying to build here we had to go after guys who are not only talented, but also 100% committed to being here at IU South Bend with high character. We believe this class has that, and are excited to hit the ground running working with them!"-Head Coach Mike Huling
