Indiana men’s basketball lands top-10 2023 recruit Mackenzie Mgbako


Five-star forward Mackenzie Mgbako committed to Indiana men’s basketball Friday, adding one more player to the Hoosiers’ recruiting class of 2023.  

Mgbako, a former Duke University recruit who decommitted in April, is the No. 10 recruit in the class of 2023, per 247 Sports. 

Mgbako’s decision came down to Indiana and the University of Kansas. After an official visit to both schools, Mgbako canceled his visit to the University of Louisville.  

Mgbako, who is 6-foot-8 and 210 pounds, will likely slide into a role similar to Miller Kopp’s last year as a 3-point shooting forward, playing in the wing position Indiana needed to fill headed into next season. 

Mgbako joins Gabe Cupps and Jakai Newton in Indiana’s 2023 freshman class. The Hoosiers have already added Kel’el Ware, Payton Sparks and Anthony Walker from the transfer portal. Mgbako’s commitment leaves Indiana with one remaining scholarship for next season.
