IU recruit Carlino headed to Bloomington South

May 27, 2009

Matt CarlinoIndiana University recruit Matt Carlino, a Class of 2011 point guard from Arizona, will transfer to Bloomington South next school year, according to this blog at AZCentral.com:

Mark Carlino submitted his resignation as head boys basketball coach at Gilbert Highland today and will move to Bloomington, Ind., with his all-state son, Matt.

Matt Carlino, a 6-foot-3 point guard who was the Fiesta Region Player of the Year, will leave this week for Bloomington, where he will enroll at South High for his final two prep seasons. South is one of Indiana’s premier programs. He committed to Indiana before his sophomore season, one in which he led Highland to the Class 5A Division I final.

“A lot of people will say a lot of things but Matt and myself have a lot of great feelings not only about Arizona and Arizona basketball but a lot of the people involved in it, as well,” said Mark Carlino, who will make the move himself in early June.

May 19, 2009

Erik FrommBloomington South junior Erik Fromm has given a verbal commitment to Butler.

The 6-foot-8 center committed to Brad Stevens‘ program earlier today during a visit to the school’s campus.

“I felt like there really wasn’t any reason to wait any longer,” Fromm told the Bloomington Herald Times. “Right when I got there, everything amazed me. I love the campus, the size of the school is what is most comfortable for me. It’s away from home, but not too far away. The basketball program speaks for itself. In terms of basketball, you can’t really get any higher level than what Butler is. I already had the perfect fit.”
