Luke Fischer was one of five seniors to sign letters of intent to play for the number one ranked Indiana Hoosiers on Wednesday. The 6’10″ Fischer had plenty of offers from other top schools in the nation, but his visit to Bloomington on New Years Eve made all the difference.
The Hoosiers were taking on then ranked number two Ohio State Buckeyes in a high profile Big Ten game. The Hoosiers went on to win the game 74-70 and it just so happened that Fischer was in attendance. The next day Fischer gave his commitment to coach Tom Crean and decided then and there he wanted to play for the Hoosiers.
Fischer led the Germantown Warhawks to an undefeated 28-0 record and the Division 1 state championship a year ago, and is poised to do it one more time in his high school career. Fischer averaged 16.6 points per game and I only see that number go up this season.
This was just a matter of making it official as everyone knew once Fischer verbally comitted, Indiana was where he was headed. It’s shaping up to be another strong class for Crean and the Hoosiers and Fischer not only adds to that class but to the team as a whole.
Fischer is a tall, lanky player who can post up, score off the dribble and can even make defenders cover him on the outside perimeter. The only criticism I can see about Fischer is that he needs to bulk up a bit to pound in the post of the Big Ten conference, something I have no doubt will happen this year and in the off season before he arrives to Bloomington.
It will be fun to watch Fischer try and lead his Warhawks back to another state championship this season. No doubt Fischer will have a great senior year.
