2018 PG Robert Phinisee Tours IU Again

Robert Phinisee hasn’t scheduled his official visits yet, but there’s a pretty good chance Indiana is going to get one of them.

Phinisee, a 2018 four-star point guard from McCutcheon High School, told AlbersAngle.com on Sunday that he will schedule his official visits after July. The 5-foot-11, 160-pound Phinisee was on campus at Indiana Saturday for Archie Miller Team Camp, and he stayed in Bloomington to tour the campus afterward.

Phinisee also toured Indiana’s campus during an unofficial visit last October.




Phinisee, ranked 118th nationally and 3rd in the state by the 247 Sports Composite, met with new Indiana coach Archie Miller back in April at his high school.

“It went really well,” he told AlbersAngle.com after the meeting. “He told me he needs a point guard in 2018 who can come in and play right away.

“He’s very business like. He showed me the style of offense he runs and I felt like it fits me perfectly.”




Phinisee picked up a new offer from Ohio State earlier this month and also has offers from Purdue and Virginia.

Phinisee led McCutcheon to the Class 4A Regional game as a junior last season where the Mavericks fell short in a 68-61 loss to Carmel. Phinisee had 30 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals in the loss.

For the season, Phinisee averaged 21.7 points, 6.8 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 3.0 steals per game. In a game against Crawfordsville in January, Phinisee exploded for 41 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists and 6 steals. He had 156 assists and only 40 turnovers (3.9-to-1 ratio) for the season.
