TGT Podcast: Indiana Basketball Weekly The Hoosiers get Mackenzie Mgbako! Ft. Steve Risley – The Grueling Truth The Grueling Truth Radio
Join Mike Goodpaster, Steve Risley and Brian Mohr as they discuss the Hoosiers’ newest addition Mackenzie Mgbako! The Hoosiers look like a Top ten team now headed into the 2023-24 season!
Mackenzie Mgbako from Roselle Catholic (New Jersey) signed his letter of intent with Indiana on Friday evening.
Mgbako initially committed to Duke in October before opening up his recruitment in April and visiting St. John’s, Kansas and Indiana before selecting Indiana as his destination. Mgbako considered Louisville but decided against visiting.
According to 247Composite, this 6-foot-8 forward is currently ranked as the No. 8 player in the 2023 class.
He became the highest-ranked high school recruit to commit under Mike Woodson, now in his third season in Bloomington.
According to RSCI rankings, Indiana has only attracted top-10 recruits since 1998: Eric Gordon, Romeo Langford, Noah Vonleh, Jared Jeffries and Cody Zeller are the only five.
Mgbako joins Gabe Cupps and Jakai Newton as three high school players that will join Indiana for the 2023-24 season. Indiana also recently welcomed three transfers – Kel’el Ware from Oregon, Anthony Walker from Miami and Payton Sparks from Ball State – as part of its 2023-24 roster.
\Do the Hoosiers now have a roster that can bring Indiana back to national relevance? Only time will tell, but Cosck Woodson is doing a great job of stacking the Hoosiers roster with talented and athletic players.
Indiana looks on paper at least as a top ten contender to win a National Championship in the upcoming season; the Hoosier’s last National Championship was in 1987, and the teams last Final Four appearance was in 2002 so Coach Woodson has his work cut out for him. Still, Friday was a huge step in the right direction!
