Hoosiers add high school center

Indiana took a step toward addressing the loss of Noah Vonleh on Friday night by receiving a commitment from high school center Jeremiah April.

April announced on his Twitter account that he was proud to choose the Hoosiers.

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 6-foot-9 and 200 pounds, April has a chance to earn immediate minutes this winter as a freshman. Vonleh left school early for the NBA, leaving undersized Devin Davis and offensively limited Hanner Mosquera-Perea as Indiana's only options at center. Coach Tom Crean sought to add more size and length and apparently has done so.

April is a native of Glendale, Ariz. He attended Joy Christian High School and Westwind Prep.

He is likely raw, given his availability at this point in time on the recruiting calendar, but the Hoosiers were desperate for help down low. At the very least, April adds depth in case of injury, suspension, foul trouble or some other unforeseen calamity.
