After a few months since the Hoosiers’ last addition, Indiana finally receives their first commitment of the 2020 class with the announcement today of 4-star guard Trey Galloway from Culver, Ind. Leading up to the commitment, chatter behind the scenes about Indiana’s position on Trey had been growing. Once again, the in-state pipeline to Bloomington continues to be wide open and fruitful for Indiana’s head coach Archie Miller.
Although the staff watched Trey Galloway from the time they took over the program, Hoosiers finally offered a scholarship after an in-home visit with the family on April 29 earlier this year. Galloway had been to campus several times for Hoosier Hysteria and a number of games, but he had his official visit at the end of May. On the visit, he got to see the program at even more intimate level, seeing how the players lived, getting time with coaches, and hanging out with his future teammates.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard held offers from Notre Dame, Purdue, Michigan State, Iowa, Butler, Nebraska, and Xavier among other schools.
Indiana ultimately won out over other in-state schools Purdue and Notre Dame which are both within an hour-and-a-half’s driving distance.
Indiana is getting a hard-nosed guard with a forceful 6-5, 200 pound frame. Galloway is an attack-first guard that initiates contact that is able to maneuver towards the rim by creating his own space. As the son of a coach, Galloway plays under control and with intent.
He has solid basketball IQ and carries court vision that enables him to feed his teammates on impressive needle-threading assists.
While Trey Galloway is a solid shooter and all around-offensive player, his defensive intensity may have been the factor to ultimately earn him an Indiana scholarship under Archie Miller.
He is coming off of a productive weekend at the adidas Gauntlet Finale that was hosted in Los Angeles. Word from the event last weekend was that Trey Galloway was close to making his final decision on where to go to school.
Since Archie Miller has taken over the head coaching position with the Indiana Basketball program, the Hoosiers have now recruited seven in-state players. They have all been ranked four-star or higher according to recruiting services.
- Damezi Anderson (4-star)
- Rob Phinisee (4-star)
- Romeo Langford (5-star, 2018 Indiana Mr. Basketball)
- Armaan Franklin (4-star)
- Trayce Jackson-Davis (5-star, 2019 Indiana Mr. Basketball)
- Joey Brunk (4-star, graduate transfer)
- Trey Galloway (4-star)
Indiana currently still has two open scholarships for this upcoming season, and three open slots for the 2020-2021 group.

More dominoes to fall with Indiana Basketball recruiting?
According to 247Sports’ rankings for 2020, Galloway is ranked 121st for his class and second within the state of Indiana. He trails only behind Indiana-target and Bloomington native Anthony Leal, who recently announced his two final schools of Indiana and Stanford.
The two have had a close relationship ever since playing together for Indiana Elite on the AAU circuit. In fact, the pair were offered on the same day with two in-home visits and they spent the Fourth of July weekend together.
Could more dominoes fall for the Hoosiers?
When asked, Anthony Leal has said that the two have “definitely” talked about playing with each other.
“We’ve definitely discussed it.”
Before Leal’s list was cut, the two had a number of mutual schools that had offered. With a past relationship both on and off the court, the two have entertained the idea of playing together. Ultimately the two do not consider themselves a package deal by any means and understand that they may each do what is best for them.
For Trey Galloway, his decision is stay in-state with the Hoosiers.
