The Indiana basketball program continues to build momentum when it comes to recruiting the 2025 class.

After extending an offer earlier today to 2025 five-star prospect Joson Sanon of Vermont Academy (Vt), sources confirm to that the top-10 forward will be taking an official visit to Indiana. The date of the official visit is expected to be March 10th for Indiana’s home game vs Michigan State.

While Sanon is currently in the 2025 class, there has been some talk about a potential reclassification up to the class of 2024, according to both Rivals National Recruiting Director Rob Cassidy and 247Sports Director of Scouting Adam Finkelstein.

Due to his connections to the northeast and east coast, it is expected that Indiana basketball assistant coach Kenya Hunter is the leader in this recruitment. Fellow Indiana basketball assistant coach Yasir Rosemond has also been involved.

The 6-foot-5 wing emerged this summer as one of the best players in the 2025 class while playing up with the 17U division with Expressions Elite. Because of his play this summer, he was one of the biggest risers in the late summer rankings update.

Sanon has a highly athletic build to his frame with the strength and speed to go with it. Plays with an extreme amount of bounce on both ends of the floor which helps him  a true rim protector and a player that can beat the defense consistently and finish above the rim. He has shown an ability to shoot the outside jumper but is at his best when he can attack the defense on or off the ball, play through contact physically, and find out a crafty way to finish around the rim. Defensively, he is able to guard spots 1-3 and has the motor and quickness to compete on that end. He has the build and intangibles to be ready for the college level right now.

During the EYBL regular season, Sanon averaged 14.6 points per game while shooting 40.8 percent from the field and 37.1 percent (36-of-97) from three. He also added 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He had four 20+ point games.

At Peach Jam, Sanon averaged 15.2 points and shot 37 percent (12-of-32) from three in six games.

He is expected to return to Team BABC next summer, as well.

Along with Indiana basketball, Sanon currently holds offers from over a dozen programs including Alabama, Kansas, Oklahoma State, LSU, Arizona, Syracuse, Providence and others. According to recruiting insider Andrew Slater, Sanon has four official visits already set, including Oklahoma State Oct. 27-29, Arizona from Nov. 18-20, LSU from Nov. 24-26 and Kansas from Dec. 21-23.

Sanon is ranked No. 10 overall in the 247Sports Composite Rankings and the No. 2 small forward in the class.
