Exactly two weeks after signing five-star center Trayce Jackson-Davis to its men's basketball program, IU made the final four of another five-star forward.

On Friday afternoon, Trendon Watford listed the Hoosiers as one of four teams he’s considering for the 2019 season. Watford also listed the University of Alabama, the University of Memphis and Louisiana State University as the other schools on his final four list.

The announcement was made on Twitter.


Watford is the No. 27 overall player in the country, according to 247Sports, and he's the top-ranked player in the state of Alabama. As a member of the Mountain Brook High School basketball team in Mountain Brook, Alabama, Watford averaged 23.3 points per game and 12.3 rebounds per game last season.

Watford is the younger brother of former IU men's basketball player Christian Watford, who was a four-year starter during his time at IU.

With Jackson-Davis and three-star guard Armaan Franklin already signed, the Hoosiers have 13 scholarship players for the 2019-20 season already.

Watford has yet to set an official timetable for when he will commit to a school.
