Five-star guard Khristian Lander had been committed to Indiana for some time. But the former member of the 2021 recruiting class will actually be arriving on campus earlier than expected.
On Monday, 247Sports reported that Lander has decided to reclassify with the 2020 recruiting cycle. That means he will be headed to Bloomington for the upcoming season and joins what is now a four-man recruiting class for the Hoosiers. The Evansville, Indiana native is the top in-state prospect and was the No. 4 point guard.
Overall, Lander ranks No. 17 nationally.
Lander has completed the necessary coursework to join Indiana’s basketball program for the 2020-21 season. The addition gives the Hoosiers even more talented depth on an already-solid roster.
Indiana’s 2020 recruiting class now ranks second in the B1G and 13th nationally. The Hoosiers also return plenty of talent from last year’s squad, including Trayce Jackson-Davis, one of the best freshmen in the conference last year.
The Hoosiers finished the 2019-20 season with a 20-12 record and a 9-11 mark in B1G play. They appeared to be headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time under head coach Archie Miller until it was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
