Malik Reneau, the No. 29 overall prospect in the On3 2022 Consensus, has committed to Indiana, he told On3 on Monday.

The 6-foot-8 power forward out of Montverde (Fla.) Academy decommitted from Florida last month after Mike White left the program to become the head coach at Georgia.

Reneau visited the Hoosiers over the weekend, and the trip sold him immediately.

“My second time around in this recruiting process I picked Indiana University because I fit very well with the coaches and players,” Reneau said to On3. “The style of play Coach (Mike) Woodson wants to play will let me show my versatility on both sides of the court. The developmental programs on the court and in the weight room are amazing. It’s also one of the best places to play college basketball!”

Indiana signee and On3 five-star CG Jalen Hood-Schifino joined Reneau on the visit. The two are teammates at Montverde and Schifino is excited to continue playing with Reneau at the college level.

“Man, first I’m really just excited that Malik is joining the family!” Schifino said to On3. “I’ve been in his ear about it ever since he opened up his recruitment. On his visit, he enjoyed it and it was good vibes out there in Bloomington!”

Hood-Schifino also has a message to the Indiana fanbase.

“For the fans, just know you’re getting two really good players who are winners. We can’t wait to get there and put in the work. I don’t think people understand how good this team can be, but they’ll find out soon!”

The tag-team duo of Reneau and Hood-Schifino forms a four-man class, as the two join four-star PF Kaleb Banks and three-star SG C.J. Gunn.

Scouting Report on Malik Reneau

“Lefty. Is an opportune scorer. Plays well in the high-low, good entry passer from the high post. Has good hands, and a quick release off the catch. The jump shot can get flat with side rotation. He cuts well, finds the open space, and seals off angles well. Slides in to take charges. While not the most dynamic, he fills in a lot of gaps.” – Jamie Shaw, On3’s National Recruiting Analyst
