BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Tom Crean believes his new six-man recruiting class is a perfect fit for No. 1 Indiana's style.
All he has to figure out now is how to make the numbers work.
On Thursday, for the first time since the newest Hoosiers signed their national letters-of-intent nearly a month ago, Crean and his assistants spoke about the newcomers.
The class includes highly-touted forwards Troy Williams and Noah Vonleh, guard Stanford Robinson, center Luke Fischer and two home-state players — forwards Devin Davis and Colin Hartman.
But by signing all six, Indiana (8-0) is now three players over the NCAA's scholarship limit.
When asked how things would work out, Crean said that he and his staff have several ways to work things out though he did not elaborate on the plans.
