Will Sheehey signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Indiana, the school announced Saturday.
The 6-foot-6, 190-pound wing player from Sagemont High School in Weston, Fla., is ranked No. 131 in the 2010 recruiting class by Rivals.com. As a junior, he averaged 24.6 points, 10 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game for South Fork High School in Florida.
He joins Victor Oladipo in IU’s 2010 recruiting class.
"Will Sheehey to me is a guy that is the epitome of what we want to build inside the program. He has a great basketball temperament, he has a real attitude to improve, athleticism and he is not even scratching the surface with his body," IU coach Tom Crean said in a statement. "He has some real skills especially shooting the basketball. His mid-range game is outstanding, his three-point game is solid and he can finish at the basket. He plays with resolve. That is what we like.
"He came to us highly recommended and has great respect for his high school coach and AAU program. He has played high-level basketball and you see how seriously he is academically. When you listen to his questions, you know he is a true student-athlete. His athleticism, along with Victor’s, are really going to upgrade us in a year."
His father, Mike, played at Syracuse and St. Bonaventure and his uncle, Tom Sheehey, played at Virginia and was drafted by the Boston Celtics.
