It didn’t take long for Archie Miller to build up momentum on the recruiting trail.

Starting on Sunday afternoon and continuing into Monday, the new Indiana head coach landed three commitments from top 100 prospects.

It started with Race Thompson, a 6-foot-8 four-star power forward from Minnesota, that announced that he will be committing to Indiana and enrolling with the Class of 2017. That was followed by commitments from Jerome Hunter, a 6-foot-7 forward from Ohio, and Damezi Anderson, a 6-foot-7 forward from Indiana, on Monday. Both Hunter and Anderson are four-star prospects in the Class of 2018; Hunter is a top 50 prospect.

All of this came in the weeks and months after Miller was able to convince Indiana’s three commitments in the Class of 2017 — Clifton Moore, Justin Smith and Al Durham, all of whom signed with Tim Crean — to remain with the program after the change in leadership.
