Tom Brew

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Two days after the November signing period began, Indiana announced on Friday that all three basketball commits — Anthony Leal, Trey Galloway and Jordan Geronimo — are now signed, sealed and delivered to the Hoosiers.

Indiana's class, presently ranked No. 20 nationally by 247sports.com, is still a work in progress as well, with 5-star forward Dawson Garcia set to make a decision next week, and Indiana is one of his finalists.

Indiana coach Archie Miller is thrilled with the three newcomers.

"We are excited to add three high-quality young men and their families to the Indiana basketball program,'' Miller said in a release from the school. "Anthony, Jordan and Trey have competed at championship levels in high school, AAU and have been extremely well coached throughout their lives. They bring toughness, athleticism, versatility and a high basketball IQ and represent everything we look for on and off the court. 

"They make others better, will have a positive impact on our team culture and are prepared to help us compete at the highest level in the Big Ten.”

Here's a quick snapshot of the three signees:
