For many Indiana prospects this day is spent with a constant buzzing coming from their mobile device as coaches try to be the among the first to contacts their prized recruits. Here is a rundown of some of the notable prospects and who they were in contact with on the first day of the phone contacting.

Austin Hatch, a 6'6'' Shooting Guard from Fort Wayne Canterbury committed to Coach John Beilein and the Michigan Wolverines as soon as he picked up an offer on Wednesday.

2014 guard Grant Evans of Wapahani said that he liked his visit to Purdue and had a good time on campus when I spoke with him today. He also recently was at Butler.

After a whirlwind of action the last 24 hours in the basketball recruiting world, things should slow down a little bit until the AAU season picks back up in July.
