Indiana basketball head coach Mike Woodson has set two in-home visits this weekend with key transfer portal prospects.

Indiana will be in to see Towson transfer Nick Timberlake on Sunday, a source told On Sunday as well, Indiana will see Harvard transfer Chris Ledlum.

Timberlake has had in-home visits with North Carolina, Ohio State and Butler thus far. Kansas, St. John’s and Michigan are also involved.

Timberlake is a 6-foot-4 wing and is one of the best shooters in the transfer portal. He is a career 37.9 percent three-point shooter and a two-time All-CAA First-Team selection. He can score off of the dribble or off of the catch and has a quick and high release.

As a senior, Timberlake averaged 17.7 points and shot 41.6 percent from three on 2.8 makes per game. He averaged 14.4 points and shot 40.6 percent from three on 2.3 makes per game as a junior. He has 26 games in the last two years with at least three made 3s in a game. For his career he has made 233 3s.

As for Ledlum, he is 6-foot-6 a sturdy-built a forward. He averaged 18.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game a season ago as an All-Ivy League selection.

Ledlum can play in the post and on the perimeter. He is very much a hybrid forward. He isn’t overly athletic but has good length and toughness and a high IQ. He’s very good off of the ball, cutting and finding open areas off of screens and in the paint. He’s just a career 29.4 percent three point shooter (72-of-245) on 3.5 attempts per game, but has made at least one three in 38 of 70 career games.

He was a four-star prospect coming out of high school and held offers from Florida, Illinois, Penn State, Notre Dame, St. John’s, Seton Hall, TCU and others.

Ohio State, Maryland, Arkansas, Kentucky, Xavier, UCLA, Nebraska, Florida and LSU are some of the other programs involved at the moment since he entered the portal.

Both players have one year of eligibility remaining.

Right now, the Indiana basketball program has two scholarship spots to fill for the 2023-24 season.
