Indiana landed a huge recruiting coup on Saturday afternoon as McDonald’s All-American Thomas Bryant pledged to the Hoosiers on national television.

Regarded as a four-star center and the No. 37 overall prospect in the country, according to Rivals, the 6-foot-10, 230-pound Bryant is coming off of a strong week at the McDonald’s All-American Game, as he displayed a high-running motor and a developing skill set. He’ll likely be in line for a bump up the final rankings of most national evaluators because he’s had a very good senior season at Huntington Prep.

One of the best rebounders in the 2015 class, Bryant picking Indiana is important for head coach Tom Crean because it gives them an additional big man that can play inside for them next season alongside returning junior Hanner Mosquera-Perea.

Indiana won the commitment of Bryant over his other finalists of Kentucky, Missouri and Syracuse. Bryant joins four-star forward Juwan Morgan and three-star wing O.G. Anunoby in Indiana’s 2015 class.
