The Class of 2013 features some very talented wing players at the top of the rankings, and really the rankings are dominated by wings all the way through. Also, with the exception of Zak Irvin most of the top players are staying in state for college.
1. Zak Irvin: 6’7” Shooting Guard, Hamilton Southeastern H.S.
Committed: University of Michigan
Zak has a great overall skill set, a very good mid-range game and he can shoot it from the perimeter as well. He is a great athlete and has good length. He handles the ball well which lets him to play a type of “point forward” position. I think he should be a very effective defender at the next level with his ability to guard multiple positions. This summer Zak solidified himself as a top prospect on the national scene.
2. Demetrius Jackson: 6’1” Point Guard, Mishawaka Marian H.S.
Committed: University of Notre Dame
Jackson is quick and athletic, can really break down the defense off the dribble. He is very smart on the court and distributes the ball well, a good floor general. I love the way Demetrius handles the ball in transition and the way he can explode to the rim; he is very explosive. I have always thought he has a little Dwayne Wade in his game. Demetrius probably had one of the best summer circuits of anyone in the midwest and moved himself into the top 35 or 40 prospects nationally in most rankings.
Committed: Purdue University
A very aggressive, scoring point guard. He is a great athlete who doesn’t mind getting into the paint and going up against the big guys down low; he has good strength which allows him to finish against bigger defenders. One of the best on ball defenders in the class. Bryson is becoming a good 3-point shooter as well, just another thing that makes him hard to stop. Great at attacking the rim off the dribble. His motor just never stops running.
4. Detrick Mostella: 6’3” Shooting Guard, La Lumiere
Committed: Oklahoma State University
Detrick is a very athletic and quick scoring guard. He can create for himself very well off the dribble and has one of the quickest first steps that I have seen. While he is a good mid-range shooter, he will need to improve his perimeter shooting consistency. Also, Detrick will need to get a lot stronger. Overall, he is a very good offensive player that likes to get up and down the floor and use his athleticism and quickness to get to the rim.
5. V.J. Beachem: 6’7” Small Forward, New Haven H.S.
Committed: University of Notre Dame
V.J. is a great perimeter shooter and can step inside and knock down a mid range pull-up jumper too. He has great length and is very athletic. He handles the ball well too. Main drawback is lack of strength and he isn’t great defensively, but if he focuses on the defensive end he could guard multiple positions. I like his all-around game, good skill set, very consistent each time out. V.J. played very well towards the end of the summer, I think he will score some points right away from Notre Dame.
6. Devin Davis: 6’6” Small Forward, Warren Central H.S.
Committed: Indiana University
Yet another high level small forward, and yet another in-state recruit. Devin is a very athletic wing player who crashes the glass. He handles the ball well for his size and likes to attack the rim off the dribble. Great rebounder, especially on the offensive end. Recently Devin has really improved his mid-range game which makes him very, very difficult to stop offensively. With his non-stop motor, ball handling, rebounding ability, and the addition of a 12-15 jumper, he could see some good minutes at IU from Day 1.
7. Torren Jones: 6’8” Power Forward, La Lumiere
Committed: University of Missouri
He is a high-energy, supremely athletic big man that runs the floor very well and does all of the dirty work. Torren isn’t the most offensively skilled post prospect around, but he really attacks the glass on both ends of the floor and does a good job of playing to his strengths. He can get a lot of easy buckets by beating opposing bigs down the floor for layups, or using his athleticism and strength to get second-chance points around the rim. He is also a good defender. A very hard worker with a college ready body.
8. Collin Hartman: 6’6” Small Forward, Cathedral H.S.
Committed: Indiana University
Another one of the great wing players in the 2013 class. Collin has the prototypical body type to play the 3 spot. He is a very good outside shooter and rebounds well. Also, he has good handles and distributes the ball well enough that he could even play some of the “2″ in college. I have seen him hit 3′s out to 25 feet with ease. He has been getting physically stronger which has really helped his game and has become a very good rebounder.
9. Basil Smotherman: 6’6” Small Forward, Lawrence North H.S.
Committed: Purdue University
Basil is a great competitor, he attacks the glass and gets rebounds at both ends of the court. The lefty has a nice shooting stroke and likes to play around the perimeter. He has showcased a good mid-range game as well, knocking down some nice pull-up jump shots off the dribble. Of late, Basil has really picked up his game. He is showing off some impressive athleticism and is back to scoring at a high rate like he did a couple of years back. After being down on him for awhile, I am once again buying stock in Basil.
10. Darryl Baker: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Jeffersonville H.S.
Committed: Lamar University
Darryl will sit out next season in order to get his academics in check, but will be attending Lamar. Great athlete, great strength, good mid-range shooter, an all-around great offensive player. He also rebounds very well for a guard, and can push the ball up the court with ease. After a rocky junior year filled with transfers and an injury early in his career, Darryl is finally showcasing his full talent on the court. This season he has quickly turned heads of people around the state with his strong play. He really has the full package offensively with ball handling, shooting, and athleticism.
11. Jalen James: 6’2” Point Guard, La Lumiere
Offers: Arkansas, Auburn, Tulane, Cleveland State, Charleston, Western Kentucky
Interest: VCU, New Mexico, Washington State, Missouri, St. Louis, UNLV, Davidson, Utah
Jalen, a former Illinois recruit, reopened his commitment over the summer and has had many schools inquiring. He is very explosive with the ball in his hands, great in transition. Jalen has excellent court vision and is a good passer. Playing for La Lumiere he is constantly playing against the best competition nationwide. He can be a great recruit for a mid or high-major program that still needs a point guard in 2013.
12. Brenton Scott: 6’1” Point Guard, Fort Wayne Northrop H.S.
Committed: Indiana State University
Very good all-around point guard. Brenton has been a little overshadowed by his brother, but I don’t think there is much difference between the two. Brenton has that same never stopping motor and is always in attack mode on the offensive end. He can really fill it up. I think he is a steal for ISU, could have potentially played high-major in my opinion.
13. Alex Etherington: 6’6” Small Forward, Hamilton Heights H.S.
De-Committed: Kansas State University
Interest: Georgia, Indiana State, Ball State, Clemson, Brewster Academy (Prep), IMG Academy (Prep)
Starting to sound like there is a very good chance he will go prep. He is a long and athletic wing with the prototypical body type to play the 3 spot. He doesn’t mind slashing to the basket and scoring down low, and is also a pretty solid rebounder. Good outside shooter, but most effective when using his strength to get to the rim. Alex had a great start to the AAU circuit before slowing down a bit towards the end. Still, his ceiling is very high and his aggressiveness on the court has really been paying off.
14. Zavier Turner: 5’9” Point Guard, Pike H.S.
De-Committed: Ball State University
Recently reopened his recruitment. Great floor general, elite quickness and seems to always find the open teammate. Sure, he is small, but his quickness and strength allow him to still be effective against taller defenders. Great pull-up jumper off the dribble, very good at creating space between him and the defender. Zavier is a tough kid who will penetrate the defense and finish through taller defenders. I think he is a great get for BSU.
15. John Paul: 6’10” Center, La Lumiere
Offers: Illinois State, Jacksonville, Mississippi State, Southern Mississippi, Tennessee Tech, Tulane, Tulsa, Western Kentucky, Wichita State
Interest: Arkansas, Clemson, Georgia, Murray State
John came to America from the Caribbean in 2011 and quickly became a highly sought after post prospect. He is a high energy big that is effective on the glass and does a good job of disrupting shots defensively. John is also pretty skilled for his size. Definitely a good mid-major prospect.
16. Marin Maric: 6’10” Center, La Lumiere
Offers: Wichita State, LaSalle
He played on the U18 Croatian team that won the European championship. I have been impressed with Marin’s all-around skills. He can step away from the basket and knock down an outside shot like your prototypical European big, but he also has pretty good strength and footwork in the post. This guy needs some more mid-majors offers.
17. Jaylon Brown: 5’11” Point Guard, Fishers H.S.
Committed: University of Evansville
Great athlete who has explosive quickness and very good jumping ability. Jaylon shoots the ball well off the dribble and is able to elevate over larger defenders to get his shot off. This summer Jaylon impressed me on the defensive end of the floor to go with his great offensive skills. I would like to see him be more aggressive though, with his explosiveness I think he should do a little more.
18. Jordan Pickett: 5’11” Point Guard, Pike H.S.
Committed: University of Loyola (Chicago)
He is a good ball handler, very effective when attacking the rim off the dribble. He has good quickness with the ball in his hands. Jordan had a huge spring and summer which has put him on the radar of a lot of programs before committing to Loyola. Jordan is explosive enough to get around defenders, and can also knock down perimeter shots. Great communicator on the court.
19. Taishaun Johnson: 5’11” Point Guard, Pike H.S.
Interest: Jacksonville, Oakland, Central Michigan, Miami (OH), Virginia Commonwealth, Southeastern Louisiana, Illinois-Chicago, Mississippi State
Taishaun has announced that he will go prep next year and reclassify to the Class of 2014. He is a super quick, left-handed guard who is very aggressive on offensive end. He likes to attack the basket off the dribble. Also a very good defender with active hands. Taishaun can fill it up offensively; definitely a score-first point guard. He shoots the ball well from the perimeter, but prefers to penetrate and attack the basket. He would be a good fit for an up-tempo low-major. Fierce competitor.
20. Leo Svete: 6’5” Shooting Guard, Penn H.S.
Committed: Western Michigan University
Leo is a versatile offensive player who could play the 1-3 spots. He is a great jump shooter, very nice mid-range game. Leo has really improved his ball handling to the point that he was running the point towards the end of the summer. He works really hard and should continue to improve. Unfortunately, Leo tore his meniscus and ACL in his final AAU game and will have to miss his senior season.
21. Franko House: 6’6” Power Forward, Concord H.S.
Committed: Ball State University
It took us until #16 to have our first “big man” get into the rankings. However, Franko is not your prototypical big guy. Franko is very agile for a kid of his size and stature. He has very good perimeter skills, can handle the ball and shoot. I like his versatility as a big man who can play the 3-5 spots effectively. Franko really does it all offensively, this summer he looked very comfortable bringing the ball up the court at times. I really, really like him.
22. Mo Evans: 6’1” Point Guard, Cathedral H.S.
My personal favorite player to watch in the 2013 class. Mo is a great ball handler and the best passer in the state in my opinion. He can break down defenses single handedly and makes good decisions with the ball in his hands. Not a big perimeter threat but he is quickly improving in that area. Court vision is as good as any in the state. I am really happy that Mo has landed at IPFW, he should make an instant impact.
23. Blake Simmons: 6’5” Small Forward, Castle H.S.
Committed: University of Evansville
All around offensive player who can score down low, drive to the basket, or shoot from the perimeter. High basketball IQ, plays like the son of a coach, (his dad is Marty, the head coach at Evansville). He rebounds well for his size and can handle the ball as well. Blake is an all-around basketball player who is pretty good at almost everything.
24. Markese McGuire: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Elkhart Memorial H.S.
Committed: University of Illinois-Chicago
Good ball handler, can play the point or off the ball. Nice athlete. Finishes well through contact when going to the rim. Markese is also a pretty good perimeter shooter. I really like Markese’s athleticism and how he carries himself on the court, but he did struggle a couple of times when I saw him this summer. I would like to see him improve his perimeter shooting consistency.
25. Tony Wills: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Ben Davis H.S.
Committed: Illinois State University
Tony is very good at getting to the basket off the dribble. He is an aggressive offensive player who shoots the ball very well from the perimeter; has a really nice lefty stroke. I would like to see him handle the ball just a little better, especially with his right hand, but he is still effective going to the rim. In terms of a smooth offensive game, none are smoother right now that Tony. He isn’t going to force anything, and is good for 15-22 a night consistently.
26. Clay Yeo: 6’5” Shooting Guard, Triton H.S.
Committed: Valparaiso University
Very athletic and a good ball handler. Clay started playing very well towards the end of the summer with MBA Select. I love the way he runs the floor and how he uses his athleticism to finish in transition. He is a very tough matchup for defenses. I think he will be a good player for Valpo. Yeo is just an all-around offensive stud. He has been putting up HUGE numbers for Triton for awhile now, and this season is no different. He is capable of going for 40 on any given night.
27. Mike Crawford: 6’5” Small Forward, Tipton H.S.
Committed: St. Louis University
Mike has a nice balance of interior and perimeter skills. He can finish inside because of his strength and jumping ability, but is also a very good outside shooter. Handles the ball well too. His versatility is his biggest asset, could really play the 1-4 spots. Can be a little out of control when he attacks the basket at times, but does a good job of getting to the foul line. I have never thought Mike is very quick laterally, but every time I see him he ends up having a huge game. Should have a nice career at St. Louis.
28. Joe Fagan: 6’4” Shooting Guard, Bishop Chatard H.S.
Committed: Indiana University (Walk-On)
Very good shooter from 3-point range. Joe works hard on the court and finds ways to score offensively. He has really picked up his aggressiveness recently and it paid off as he had a big high school season last year and a nice AAU circuit this summer. I like his size at the “2″ guard spot, he is strong and creates a matchup issue for defenses. Solid all-around player.
29. Milos Kostic: 6’7” Power Forward, Traders Point Christian Academy
Interest: Kennesaw State, Northern Illinois, Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Milos has good size and footwork in the post. Good passer with his back to the basket. He has a pretty solid overall skill set; he handles the ball very well and can shoot it a little bit. He can use his athleticism and ball handling ability to get to the rim from the wings against a slower defender. However, he will need to get stronger to develop more of a true post game. Since de-committing from Northwestern things have slowed down for Kostic, but he has been playing well and attracting some low and mid-major interest.
30. Cole Murray: 6’7” Small Forward, Delphi H.S.
Committed: Northern Kentucky University
Good length and shoots the ball well from the outside for a guy of his size. Cole is active on the glass, a good offensive rebounder. Nice hands around the basket. Cole came into the summer circuit with just 3 offers and finished up with 10; he may have done more for his recruitment than just about anybody in the state. He has added some strength and gotten better off the dribble. I really like his game. One of the best pure shooters in the state.
31. Darius Latham: 6’5” Power Forward, North Central H.S.
Committed: Indiana University (Football)
He is a physical beast and a very effective rebounder. Moves well for his size. I really like how he uses his body to score down low and clears a lot of space when grabbing rebounds. Darius is undersized, but would have been a nice pick up for a basketball team. He got the job done all summer long against top level competition. There has been some talk between him and Coach Crean about the possibility of suiting up for the basketball team as well.
32. Mike Schlotman: 6’2” Point Guard, Munster H.S.
Committed: William & Mary University
Mike has really burst onto the scene over the course of the last year, first by being named to the North Junior All-Star team last year, then continuing his strong play onto the AAU circuit. He has pretty good size for a guard and is just a solid all-around player. He shoots the ball well from the perimeter and mid-range, but is really more of a floor general than anything else. I think he is a solid pickup for William & Mary.
33. Nick Davidson: 6’4” Shooting Guard, Andrean H.S.
Committed: Valparaiso University
A very good shooter. Nick also gets to the foul line a lot, where he is a very good free throw shooter. Not exceptionally quick which holds him back some on the defensive end, but his offensive abilities make him a nice prospect. Nick is a very good ball handler and is able to hurt you going to the rim along with his great shooting ability. Also a good passer. I really like his game.
34. Lane Mahurin: 6’7” Power Forward, Rockville H.S.
Committed: Indiana Wesleyan University (NAIA)
Nice length, a versatile set of offensive skills. Lane needs to get a little stronger, but overall he has the tools to be a very good player. He is at his best when catching the ball in the high post or short corner and using his ball handling ability to attack the rim. Rebounds the ball well, disrupts lots of shots defensively, just all-around good basketball player. Good upside. His game is a lot like that of his older brother, R.J. who is playing for Indiana State.
35. Austin Torres: 6’7” Power Forward, Penn H.S.
Committed: University of Notre Dame
Austin has really blown up. He is a freak athlete who can simply jump out of the gym. He doesn’t really create much for himself, but he is as good as they come at getting offensive rebounds and scoring off of put backs. If he can become a better ball handler and shooter he would be very, very hard to guard. Austin is a great rebounder and finishes well around the rim. He may not get a lot of minutes at Notre Dame, but if he keeps expanding his game he could develop into a contributor.
36. Sam Philpott: 6’7” Small Forward, Noblesville H.S.
Committed: Rollins College (DII)
Sam is a versatile big man who likes to play around the perimeter. He can stroke the 3-pointer, and is also effective at putting the ball on the floor and getting to the basket or pulling up for mid-range. Good rebounder as well. His size allows him to guard multiple positions. I would like to see him get a little quicker because sometimes he struggles against a long, athletic defender. Sam will be a great player at the DII level for Rollins.
37. Antonio Penny: 6’0” Point Guard, Logansport H.S.
Offers: Northwestern State, Ohio Dominican (DII)
Interest: Middle Tennessee State, Gardner-Webb, Bucknell, Lincoln Memorial (DII)
Very quick and athletic. Antonio is very good when he is in the open court with the ball in his hands. He can either push the ball to the rim, knock down a pull-up jump shot, or dish to an open teammate. He is very good in transition. Big time scorer who will really fill it up from the point guard spot. Antonio is a little under-the-radar still even after playing pretty well this past summer. Low-major coaches or high level DII’s need to get on him if in need of a PG.
38. Forrester Sims: 6’2” Point Guard, Franklin Central H.S.
Committed: Maryville University (DII)
Forrester impressed a lot of people this summer. He is a good athlete with length and can shoot the 3-pointer well. He handles the ball very well and stays poised under pressure. I think he can play either the 1 or 2-guard spot at the next level. I just love his all-around game, handles the ball, shoots it, good athlete, does a little bit of everything. Will be a real solid player at the DII level I think.
39. Anthony Johnson: 6’3” Small Forward, Decatur Central H.S.
Interest: Iona, Lake Land Community College (JUCO)
Anthony is a strong 2-guard who is very aggressive on the offensive end. He is at his best when able to attack the rim off the dribble from either wing. He rebounds the ball pretty well and always gives you 100%. Needs to improve his perimeter shooting ability. He has been climbing the rankings recently and turning heads around the state with some 30 point performances to start the year. If you need a guy to score the ball, he may be your guy.
40. Nick Gamble: 5’10” Point Guard, Homestead H.S.
Committed: Davenport University (NAIA)
Gamble is a quick point guard who really likes to play up tempo and push the ball up the floor. He is a very good ball handler which lets him weave around the defense when running the fast break. Nick needs to improve his jump shooting and also try to get a little stronger to make a big impact at the next level.
41. Jake Thompson: 6’3” Point Guard, Wawasee H.S.
Great outside shooter. Jake has good strength and handles the ball very well. His ability to shoot from the perimeter gives him the chance to play off the ball too. I really like this guy, he has great size for a point guard. Jake can really fill it up if you don’t keep an eye on him. I haven’t heard a lot about his recruitment, but he can be a great point guard at a high level DII or small DI program. He suffered another injury this winter; injuries have been an issue for him.
42. Richard Freeman: 6’7” Power Forward, Lawrence Central H.S.
Interest: Morehead State
Nice length and is very athletic. Richard needs to improve his shooting so he can possibly play the “3″ in college, but he has gotten pretty good at driving to the basket from the wing or high post. Disrupts shots defensively and is an okay rebounder. Looks to do a little too much offensively at times, and just hasn’t seemed to put it all together yet. However, there is a lot of upside with him which has drawn a lot of attention.
43. Travis Woods: 6’4” Shooting Guard, Muncie Central H.S.
Recently left the team at Muncie Central. Woods is a great athlete, gets off the floor very well and is quick. He rebounds well for his size and is a good slasher on the offensive end. Good at attacking the basket, gets to the foul line a lot. I didn’t see him out on the AAU circuit, but he put on a good show at the Top 100. Travis shoots the ball pretty well and is tough to stop in transition when going to the rim. Nice prospect for low-majors that need some size on the perimeter and a guy who can score. Hasn’t gotten much interest that I am aware of. May be looking at JUCO or Prep School.
44. Justus Stanback: 6’8” Power Forward,West Lafayette H.S.
Justus had a huge summer that put him on the radar screen of a lot of Division II and low-major programs. He is a big, strong kid who can flat out score the basketball. He was consistently putting up 20-30 points all summer long. I like his ability to step outside and shoot the ball for his size. Justus is still a little raw in terms of post skills, but his ability to stretch the defense is impressive. I like his upside.
45. Brock Cosey: 5’9” Point Guard, South Bend Riley H.S.
Committed: Chicago State University
I was impressed with how Brock played this summer. He is extremely quick the ball in his hands and can penetrate the defense with ease. However, he obviously likes height which holds him back a little bit. Brock can hit an open outside shot, but will need to improve his shooting consistency.
46. Garrett Hall: 6’2” Shooting Guard, Cathedral H.S.
Interest: IPFW, IUPUI, Lake Erie (DII), IU-East (NAIA)
I really like Garrett’s game. He is under-the-radar due to playing on such a talented and deep high school team, but he is definitely a college prospect in his own right. Can score in a variety of ways, and is a very good perimeter shooter. This summer Garrett showed off his scoring ability by being one of the leading scorers alongside Mike Crawford for Indiana Elite Black. He has a sweet lefty stroke and a very advanced mid-range game. He handles the ball pretty well too. I love him for a high level DII or low-major DI program. Just a solid player who will help you in a lot of ways.
47. Chris Lemon: 6’0” Point Guard, Anderson H.S.
Interest: St. Joseph (DII), Southern Indiana (DII)
Chris is one of the real under-the-radar guys in this class. He is a very good athlete that can play either the point guard or 2-guard spots offensively. He is a very good 3-point shooter with a quick release, good elevation, and deep range. Also, on the defensive, there may not be a better on-ball defender than Chris Lemon; he absolutely locks you up. I know I am probably higher on him than some, but I really like he can be a good Division II or possibly even low-major player. Certainly worth checking out.
48. Andrew Dakich: 6’1” Point Guard, Zionsville H.S.
Offers: Butler (Walk-on), Purdue (Walk-on)
Interest: New Hampton (Prep), IMG Academy (Prep)
Andrew is the definition of a true point guard. He isn’t going to wow you with his quickness or athleticism, but he gets the job done. Very high basketball IQ, great passer, good vision, just everything you would want in a floor general. I was extremely impressed with his improvement over the summer; he shoots the ball well from the perimeter now. Oh, and by the way, he is the son of Dan Dakich. Low-majors that want a smart point guard who will win you games, give Andrew a call.
49. Treivon Boyd: 6’4” Small Forward, Anderson H.S
Interest: IPFW, Wright State, Kent State, Central State (DII), Ohio Dominican (DII)
Treivon has been a big contributor on the court since his freshman season. Very good rebounder with interior scoring ability as well. He can shoot the ball from the perimeter a little too. I really like his all-around offensive game. Tre went off a couple times this summer and looked great, but then can be kind of quite other times. When he is playing aggressively and using his strength and ball handling ability he is very tough to stop. He is a great kid who has been playing very well of late. His size and versatility are his main strengths; he would be a great get for a DII school
50. Michael Clements: 6’8” Center, Roncalli H.S.
Committed: Illinois State University (Football)
Michael played well this summer. In a class dominated by guards and forwards he is a solid post prospect. He has good footwork around the basket, does a good job of finishing inside. Good rebounder, uses his size and strength to get position.
51. Sean Howard: 5’9” Point Guard, Lawrence North H.S.
Committed: Lake Erie College (DII)
I really like his game. He is a great ball handler, a very unselfish passer, and just an all-around floor general. Sean looks really good running the fast break or playing a half court style; he always lets the game come to him and will not force anything. I think he will have a great 4-year career for Lake Erie.
52. Jabriel Allen: 6’4” Shooting Guard, Muncie Central H.S.
Jabriel has been having a very good season that has put him on the radar of some college coaches. He is a big, strong guard that handles the ball well and can get to the rim off the dribble. He can shoot the 3 pretty well too. With his offensive skills and size his game can transition well to the next level; still has some upside as well. Jabriel is a sleeper low-major prospect in my opinion.
53. Mike Miklusak: 6’5” Small Forward, Lake Central H.S.
Offers: Chicago State, Texas Pan-American
Miklusak has quietly came onto the scene as a solid Division II or low-major prospect. After lurking the shadows of Glenn Robison III, and still playing alongside DI recruits Tyler Wideman and Tye Wilburn, Miklusak does not get the media attention that his teammates receive. He is a good shooter, rebounds the ball well, and works very hard on the court. Colleges should like the fact that he has experience being a role player throughout high school.
54. Stephen Turner: 6’5” Small Forward, Mt. Vernon (Fortville) H.S.
Offers: IU-East (NAIA)
Interest: Central Michigan, Toledo, Lake Erie (DII)
Strong, physical wing player with a good mid-range game. Stephen does not try to do too much on the basketball court, very solid all-around. He is a very good rebounder. He can score from the outside or use his strength to get inside and finish. Solid under-the-radar prospect. Stephen is the type of guy who can make an impact from Day 1 for your program.
55. Michael Volovic: 5’11” Point Guard, Carmel H.S.
Committed: Butler University (Walk-On)
Michael is a heady point guard who does everything pretty well on the court. Good ball handler, good decision maker, etc. Coming off of a state championship season in high school ball last year for Carmel. Some small school is going to be very lucky to have Michael running their team. All he does is win basketball games.
56. B.J. Jenkins: 5’10” Point Guard, Merrillville H.S.
Interest: Chicago State
Jenkins is a score-first point guard who can really fill it up. He can shoot the ball very well from the perimeter and is quick enough to get by his man and get to the rim. He is active on the defensive end as well; comes up with a lot of steals. I like his offensive game, but he is kind of a shooting guard stuck in a point guard’s body.
57. John McCloud: 6’6” Power Forward, Lawrence North H.S.
Committed: Davenport University (NAIA)
Very good athlete, runs the floor well and has good hands. Good area rebounder. I think he would cause some matchup problems at the low major level because of how well he moves for his size. John looks good when catching the ball on the wing and attacking the rim off the dribble. He really impressed me earlier this summer, but I would like to see a little bit more fire out of him.
58. Caleb Oetjen: 6’1” Point Guard, Horizon Christian School
Committed: Bethel College (NAIA)
Caleb is a little under-the-radar since he is home schooled and plays for a very small non-IHSAA school. However, he is a pure scorer who can really shoot the ball or drive the ball to the basket. He isn’t overly quick or athletic and can struggle at times against an athletic defender who provides a lot of ball pressure. However, he still will not turn the ball over and is smart enough to figure out ways to still be effective. I have watched him put up some huge scoring numbers, including a 54 point outburst this summer. Good player and a great kid.
59. David Hill: 6’0” Point Guard, Cathedral H.S.
Recently left the team at Cathedral. Solid all-around point guard. David is a great distributor and limits turnovers. Needs to improve his perimeter shooting. He is a very good athlete, nice leaping ability. David doesn’t do a lot of the flashy things that make a player standout; he isn’t going to score a ton of points, but he can run a team. Pretty good all-around player.
60. Anthony Patterson: 6’4” Small Forward, Pike H.S.
Interest: IU-East (NAIA), Kankakee Community College (JUCO)
Anthony played alongside Trey Lyles, Trevon Bluiett, etc. in the summer with the Spiece Indy Heat, so he gets a little overlooked. However, he is a good player in his own right. Does a good job of getting to the rim when he catches the ball within 15 feet. He is very strong and athletic; he is great at getting the ball around 15 feet and getting to the rim off the dribble. I have always been a fan of Anthony, but he doesn’t have much college interest.
61. Daniel Woll: 6’6” Small Forward, Columbia City H.S.
Committed: Huntington University (NAIA)
Daniel is one of the better small college prospects in the state. He is very versatile offensively and is just an all-around scorer. I really like his size and length. Daniel is pretty good going to the basket off the dribble and can also shoot the ball.
62. Jasmin Biberovic: 6’8” Power Forward, Marquette Catholic H.S.
Jasmin missed out on the AAU circuit after suffering a foot injury, but should bounce back well and have a big senior campaign. He is a big, strong kid with good footwork in the post. He finishes very well around the rim and has a pretty good looking shooting touch when he steps away from the basket. A good “sleeper” in the state.
63. Michael Morris: 6’6” Power Forward, New Palestine H.S.
Offers: Lake Erie (DII)
Interest: Indianapolis (DII), Goshen (NAIA), DePauw (DIII), Wabash (DIII)
Michael is a great rebounder for his size, does a good job of getting position and really attacks the boards. He also has a good post game too and is a consistent shooter out to 15-18 feet.
64. Jamie Rutherford: 6’5” Small Forward, Pike H.S.
Interest: Kalamazoo Valley Community College (JUCO)
Will reclassify to the Class of 2014 and attend prep school next year. No longer on the team at Pike. Had been averaging around 9 points and 7 rebonds per game. A very good rebounder on both ends of the court. Jamie is active on the court at all times. He shoots a good percentage from the field, he can shoot the 3 ball well and has a nice mid-range game. Overall he is a skilled wing player with pretty good size and good upside. Jamie has been playing very well of late; a solid offensive player that can hurt you in a variety of ways.
65. Sawyer Glick: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Columbus North H.S.
Interest: Auburn, Gardner-Webb, Army, Lincoln Memorial (DII)
Sawyer has good length and can really stroke it from deep. Led Columbus North last year in scoring while playing alongside 2014 prospect Evan Henry and 2015 star Josh Speidel. He isn’t a great athlete which holds him back against some really good defenders, but as a pure shooter he is about as good as they come.
66. Devin Dixon: 6’7” Center, Cathedral H.S.
Offers: St. Francis (NAIA), Loyola (IL) (Walk-on)
Interest: Grand Valley State (DII),Saginaw Valley State (DII)
Big body down low with pretty good hands. Devin is a little slow on his feet, however he works hard and is smart on the court to make up for that a little bit. I was pretty impressed with his improvement this summer, especially how he was able to step away from the basket and knock down an outside shot. Decent post prospect to watch.
67. Michael Brown: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Indianapolis Northwest H.S.
Interest: New Orleans, Cleveland State, Anderson (DIII), Wabash (DIII), Danville Community College (JUCO), Kalamazoo Valley Community College (JUCO)
Michael is a long, athletic perimeter player who can really stroke it from 3-point range. He is mostly just a shooter with serious range, but he can use his athleticism to get inside a little bit. Should be able to be a good defender, but isn’t there yet.
68. Sam Thompson: 5’11” Point Guard, Warren Central H.S.
Sam had a great summer and should have moved himself onto the radar of some small schools. He is a very good ball handler who can penetrate the defense off the dribble. He is a scoring guard who has very good body control inside. Sam is a great on-ball defender who causes turnovers. Just a solid all-around point guard that you can win with.
69. Darian Fitzgerald: 6’0” Point Guard, Broad Ripple H.S.
A good scoring point guard that can knock down the 3-point shot or attack the rim off the dribble. Darian is a strong kid who doesn’t mind getting physical with bigger defenders. I like his competitiveness and all-around skill. An under-the-radar prospect who should be getting a lot more interest in my opinion.
70. Ryan Taylor: 6’5” Shooting Guard, Michigan City H.S.
Interest: Southern Illinois-Edwardsville, Illinois-Chicago
He is a really skilled offensive player. Ryan can shoot the ball very well and is explosive off of the floor. Just a great all-around athlete. However, he isn’t very good on the defensive end and has a tendency to blend into the action at times. When he is being active and playing with intensity he can be very hard to stop. Most likely looking at prep school for a year before making a college decision. Probably will fit in best at the high NAIA or DII level.
71. Cody Young: 6’6” Power Forward, Trader’s Point Christian Academy
He does a very good job of stretching the defense. Cody can shoot the ball well from the perimeter, has improved a lot in that facet of the game. He is also a strong kid who can score from the post. A very good rebounder. He isn’t a great athlete, but makes up with it in strength and getting good position.
72. Tyler Alexander: 6’3” Small Forward, Indianapolis Northwest H.S.
Interest: Lincoln Trail (JUCO)
A lot of fun to watch. Tyler plays with a non-stop motor. He is very strong and attacks the basket very well off the dribble. He can finish inside and rebound very well for his size. Needs to improve his perimeter game, but has been knocking down some 3′s lately. If he can consistently do that, watch out.
73. Derek Hinen: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Columbia City H.S.
Committed: Huntington University (NAIA)
Derek had a very good summer. He has good size for a guard and can get to the basket off the dribble very well. I think he may be able to slide over and run the point some. He shot the ball pretty well all summer.
74. Ian Asher: 6’0” Shooting Guard, Danville H.S.
Committed: Wheaton College (DIII)
Ian is a big time scorer who can stroke the ball from 3-point range. He is undersized for his position, but finds ways to score. Rebounds pretty well for his size. Ian can probably run the point in college if he needs to, but he is definitely a score first point guard. He is very quick and likes to push the tempo.
75. Bradley Covington: 5’9” Point Guard, Trader’s Point Christian Academy
Interest: Oberlin (DIII), Illinois Institute of Technology (NAIA), Marian (NAIA)
An ultra-quick ball handler who likes to penetrate the defense and attack the rim. Bradley can play the role of scorer and the role of distributor effectively. He has good court vision and does a good job of not turning the ball over. Love the way he can push the ball up the court and make things happen.
76. Cam Denny: 6’5” Small Forward, Norwell H.S.
Committed: Nova Southeastern University (DII)
Good length and a good athlete. Cam has good perimeter skills, can shoot the ball or dribble to the rim. Overall I really like his skill set; he will be able to contribute right away at the next level.
77. John Beineke: 6’7” Power Forward, Perry Meridian H.S.
Interest: IU-East (NAIA)
I really was impressed by John this summer. He is very skilled for his size; he shoots the ball well from 3-point range and can put it on the floor to attack the rim. John’s back to the basket game isn’t great, but as a “stretch 4″ who can really score the ball he is a good prospect. Needs to get stronger.
78. Kegan Comer: 6’3” Point Guard, Jay County H.S.
Committed: University of St. Francis (NAIA)
Very good shooter, sweet lefty stroke. Kegan plays with a very high basketball IQ. He handles the ball very well and is a good passer. Definitely will be a scoring point guard who doesn’t turn the ball over at the next level.
Connor burst onto the scene last winter while leading Loogootee to the Class A State Championship. He is a big, strong kid who can really score the basketball. He has soft hands in the post and can also shoot the ball from the perimeter a little bit. Very smart player. 3 sport athlete who can definitely play basketball at the next level. Connor remains a little under-the-radar because as far as I know he does not play AAU ball. I haven’t really seen him play much, but he is worth checking out at the NAIA level.
80. Steven Bennet: 6’2” Shooting Guard, New Castle H.S.
Committed: Butler University (Walk-on)
Steven is coming off a year long absence due to a couple of knee injuries, so he has kind of fallen off the radar screen, however he should have a big senior year. He is a great spot up 3 point shooter. He has a pretty good pump fake when defenders fly out at him, then can dribble in to take a mid-range shot.
81. Jermaine Parrish: 5’11” Point Guard, New Albany H.S.
Committed: University of Louisville (Track)
Jermaine is the defending 100-meter dash state championship and the runner-up in the 200-meter. So, he is obviously quick. Also, he is very strong for his size and can get to the basket whenever he wants. If he doesn’t run track in college he could definitely play basketball.
82. Brock McFarland: 6’0” Point Guard, Jay County H.S.
Committed: Grace College (NAIA)
Very good offensive player, can score in a variety of ways. Brock is a very smart basketball player who will not turn the ball over or force the issue with the ball in his hands. If he were a little taller and more athletic his upside would be much higher. While he isn’t that quick he does seem to find ways to penetrate the defense and get to the basket.
83. Kyle Aiton: 6’2” Shooting Guard, Castle H.S.
Offers: Judson (NAIA), DePauw (DIII), Anderson (DIII)
Interest: Southern Indiana (DII), Hope (NAIA), Rockford (DIII), Greenville (DIII)
He really impressed me earlier this summer with his athleticism and shooting ability. He can really fill it up from deep. Gets great elevation on his jumper. Kyle is a tough kid who handles the ball fairly well and can get to the rim off the dribble. At his best as a spot up shooter.
84. Collin Wojick: 6’4” Shooting Guard, Andrean H.S.
Interest: Rose Hulman (DIII), IU-East (NAIA)
Collin is a very good perimeter shooter, but has been improving the rest of his game. He can put the ball on the floor and get to the rim now and is also a good rebounder for a guard. High academic kid too.
85. Eric Miller: 6’7” Small Forward, Carroll (Flora) H.S.
Committed: Grace College (NAIA)
I think Eric could develop into a very nice college player. He has good size for his skill set and is a decent athlete. Eric shoots the ball very well and has become a threat to drive to the basket off the dribble. He does a good job of using his length to get inside and score. I would like to see him get stronger and become a little bit better rebounder.
86. Josh VanMeter: 5’11” Point Guard, Norwell H.S.
Committed: Illinois State University (Baseball)
High level baseball prospect. Josh is a scoring point guard who shoots the ball very well from the perimeter. Also an able and willing passer. Josh took Norwell to the 3A state championship game and landed himself on the North Junior All-Star team.
87. Chandler Rowe: 6’6” Power Forward, North Central H.S.
Offers: Northwood (DII), IU-East (NAIA)
Interest: Lincoln Memorial (DII), Grand Valley State (DII)
Chandler is a great athlete with huge upside. Right now he is pretty raw, but showed a lot of improvement over the course of the summer. Chandler is a great dirty work player, he runs the floor well, gets tip ins, and takes a lot of charges. He needs to get stronger and improve his shooting consistency to see his game take off.
88. Nate Bubash: 6’6” Center, Munster H.S.
Committed: Indiana Wesleyan University (NAIA)
He is a little undersized for a “5″ man, but he gets the job done. Nate has a variety of polished post moves that he uses and does a very good job of scoring around the rim. Good rebounder on both ends of the court. He would be a great pickup for a small college who needs a solid post presence.
89. LaBradford Sebree: 6’2” Shooting Guard, Kokomo H.S.
Strong, athletic guard who could matchup defensively with the 1-3 spots. I like how he attacks the rim off the dribble, really goes strong to the basket. Needs to become a better perimeter shooter if he wants to get more interest.
90. Larry Johnson: 6’7” Power Forward, Hamilton Southeastern H.S.
Interest: Owens Community College (NAIA)
I hadn’t seen him much until this fall, but Larry did a lot to impress me then. He is a freak athlete with long arms and legs and can jump very well. His basketball skills are a little raw, but he can rebound and bother shots defensively. Definitely one to an eye on, in a couple of years he could become a very good player.
91. Deris Duncan: 6’4” Shooting Guard, Noblesville H.S.
Interest: Eastern Kentucky, Leigh, Yale, IU-East (NAIA)
Has decided to go to prep school next season and will reclassify to 2014. Deris is Division I football prospect along with being a very good basketball player. He is very athletic and strong, solid size on the perimeter. Rebounds well. I thought he did quite a few good things this summer; he uses his athleticism to penetrate the defense and score inside.
92. Scott Schwieterman: 6’7” Center, Jay County H.S.
Interest: IU-South Bend (DIII), Anderson (DIII), Elmhurst (DIII)
Has good footwork down low and can run the floor fairly well. Scott has pretty polished post moves and rebounds the ball well. Good small school post prospect.
93. Charles Cooper: 6’3” Small Forward, Gary Lew Wallace H.S.
Interest: Elmhurst (DIII), Wabash (DIII)
He is a great rebounder for his size, a double-double machine during his junior season. Charles is a good athlete and a strong kid that can cause some match up problems. Can play either 3 or 4 at the next level.
94. Jacob Raspopvich: 6’1” Point Guard, Merrillville H.S.
Committed: University of Texas-Pan American
He is a hard-nosed point guard who his strong, athletic, and pretty quick. Jacob is a good quarterback for the Merrillville football team, and he plays basketball with the toughness of a football player. He will need to continue to work on his shooting ability, but he is a pretty good pure point guard.
95. Anfernee Brown: 6’2” Shooting Guard, East Chicago Central H.S.
Anfernee is a heady guard that plays with a high basketball IQ. He is a good 3-point shooter and is very quick on the court. Also, he rebounds very well for a guard, grabbing nearly 6 rebounds per game last season. Look for him to keep improving and have a big year this season. His release on his shot is a little different, but it still goes in quite a bit. Solid small school prospect.
96. Randon Jackson: 6’5” Shooting Guard, Fort Wort Bishop Luers H.S.
I really like his size for the 2-guard spot. Randon is a good athlete who can score the ball in a variety of ways. He is also a pretty good rebounder from the guard spot. He transferred to Luers from Marion, look for him to have a big year as the running mate of James Blackmon Jr.
97. Marq Rogers: 6’3” Small Forward, Fort Wayne Concordia H.S.
Committed: Montana University (Football)
Marq is a good athlete and an elite defender. He really gets into you on the defensive end and uses his length and quickness to be disruptive and cause turnovers. Good 3-point shooter too.
98. Adison Daub: 5’11” Point Guard, DeKalb H.S.
Committed: Indiana University-South Bend (NAIA)
Adison had a very good summer and did quite a bit to increase the college interest around him. He is a very good offensive player that likes to get inside off the dribble and isn’t afraid to take on contact. I like his all-around scoring ability; he shoots it well and seems to have a nose for the ball. Just needs to try and become a little more athletic.
99. Brett McCory: 6’4” Small Forward, Brownstown Central H.S.
Interest: Southern Indiana (DII), Bellarmine (DII), Indianapolis (DII)
He is a very skilled offensive player with the ability to hurt you from the perimeter or on the inside with his strength. He rebounds the ball well on both ends of the court and can guard the 2-4 spots if needed. Good NAIA prospect, may even be able to play low-level Division II.
100. Dominic Dixon: 6’7” Center, University H.S.
Offers: Indiana State (Walk-on)
Dominic is a big bodied post prospect with good touch around the basket, pretty good footwork, and a high basketball IQ. Dixon isn’t overly quick or athletic, but he is strong and works very hard down low. He rebounds the ball well and knows how to score with his back to the basket. I think he would be a very solid NAIA Center.
101. Dalton Duely: 6’6” Power Forward, Providence H.S.
Interest: Elmhurst (DIII)
He can shoot the ball very well for his size and can finish down low with his strength. Dalton handles the ball pretty well too. Just an overall skilled 4 man. He isn’t the most athletic guy, but he has some strength and pretty good footwork. He would be a good pickup for a DIII school.
102. Antonio Pipken: 6’3” Small Forward, Bowman Academy H.S.
I love his athleticism and versatility on both ends of the court. Antonio handles the ball pretty well and is a good mid-range shooter. He is at his best when he just lets his athleticism take over to get offensive rebounds and finish around the rim. Very good rebounder for his size.
103. Tom Bardeson: 6’4” Small Forward, Crown Point H.S.
Interest: IU-East (NAIA)
Tom is a big, strong wing player who handles the ball very well for his size. He can get inside off the dribble and finish through contact at the rim. He can hit an open 3-pointer, but I would like to see him improve his perimeter shooting consistency. Tom had a great showing at the Top 100 event. College ready body.
104. Drew Benedict: 5’9” Point Guard, Columbia City H.S.
Committed: Huntington University (NAIA)
Drew is an aggressive, scoring point guard who can really fill it up. He shoots the ball from the perimeter and has serious range. He really likes to be in attack mode and has a tendency to force the action a bit too much at times. However, in the right program his scoring ability could come through very nicely.
105. Bobby Rogers: 5’11” Point Guard, Harrison H.S.
Bobby is a strong, quick guard who penetrates the defense very well. He is extremely fast in the open court and can beat his man off the dribble with ease. When attacking the rim he is strong enough to finish through contact, which makes up a little bit for his lack of height. I would definitely recommend him to an NAIA program that likes to get up and down the court.
106. Trent Van Horn: 6’3” Small Forward, Fort Wayne Canterbury H.S.
Trent is a strong, athletic “3″ man who can shoot the ball well from the perimeter. He is very aggressive on the offensive end, can force the action a bit at times, but overall his aggressive is a positive thing. He has really been filling it up so far this winter. Good DIII prospect.
I came away very impressed with Radamus after seeing him in a game against Ben Davis earlier this season. He is a great athlete, very quick with the ball, and can jump very well. I like shooting ability as well. A good, quick guard who can score in a hurry.
108. Christian Sikoski: 6’5” Small Forward, Trader’s Point Christian Academy
A good all-around player. Christian has a nice mid-range game and scores well around the rim. I would like to see him improve his point shooting though. I like his size and strength on the wing, a good rebounder and handles the ball pretty well. Pretty versatile player on both ends of the court.
109. Carlos Knox: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Cardinal Ritter H.S.
I really like his athleticism and length. Carlos is an effective defender using his long arms to pressure defenders and get steals. Offensively he does a good job of getting inside and using a nice floater to finish in the paint. Also a decent perimeter shooter.
Strong, athletic guard who likes to attack the basket off the dribble. Winters is a very hard worker and a good on-ball defender. He will need to improve his perimeter shooting game, but he has a pretty good pull-up jumper and gets to the rim well. I enjoy watching him play.
111. Dan Scofield: 6’7” Center, Lawrence North H.S.
Committed: Wabash College (DIII)
Big, strong post presence. In a class with a lot of guards and wings Dan is a solid back-to-the-basket prospect. He has a soft touch around the rim and can finish through contact.
112. John Mosser: 6’6” Power Forward, Valparaiso H.S.
Committed: Air Force Academy
Averaged a double-double this past year at Valpo. John has put in a pretty good summer with the Indiana Dawgz program, he is a very good rebounder and has good footwork. He finishes around the rim well. Mosser has good potential, could see him moving up the rankings a little still.
113. Josh Sullen: 6’4” Small Forward, Cathedral H.S.
Interest: IU-East (NAIA)
He will fit in well with an NAIA program that likes to get up and down the court. Josh is a long, athletic wing that likes to attack the rim off the dribble. He can guard a 2-guard or the 3 spot on defense. Pretty solid all-around, but I would like to see him improve his shooting.
114. Wade Stallings: 5’2” Point Guard, North Central H.S.
Committed: Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (NAIA)
No, 5’2” is not a typo. However, don’t let his size totally scare you away because Wade can flat out play. Offensively, he can play with anybody as he showed throughout the AAU circuit by being very effective against Division I talent. Wade is lightening quick and loves to play an up-tempo style. He is completely fearless on the court and isn’t afraid to go inside with the big boys. His size does hurt him defensively though.
115. Taron Miller: 5’11” Point Guard, South Bend Clay H.S.
An athletic, score first point guard that is one of the best guard in South Bend. He is pretty strong which makes up a little bit for his lack of height, he does a good job of finishing inside. I really like his athleticism, and considering he looks to score so much, he is a pretty efficient offensive player.
116. Skylar Moss: 6’4” Power Forward, Andrean H.S.
Interest: Wabash (DIII)
A strong, big-bodied post that does a great job on the block considering he is just 6’4″. Skylar has good footwork and moves pretty well for his size. He is a very good rebounder and gets great position down low. Along with scoring well inside, he can step out and shoot pretty well to around 15 feet, but he is definitely more comfortable on the block. He could be a force at a small college.
117. DaVonte Harris: 5’10” Point Guard, Lawrence Central H.S.
Harris can hurt you off the dribble going to the rim or with his perimeter shooting ability. He is obviously a little undersized, but at the NAIA level he could be really good. A good scoring point guard.
118. Chris Sleepers: 5’9” Point Guard, South Bend Washington H.S.
Chris is a sleeper (no pun intended) in this class. He is a very solid all-around point guard that won’t turn the ball over and finds ways to score. He has S.B. Washington off to a great start this season. Would be a good NAIA PG in my opinion.
119. Taylor Chilton: 6’6” Power Forward, Lawrence Central H.S.
Interest: Grand Valley State (DII), Simpson (NAIA), Chicago (DIII)
Taylor is a solid post prospect with pretty good footwork and strength. I liked the way he ran the floor this summer and he did a good job catching the ball in transition and finishing inside. He isn’t overly quick, but he works hard and has a good feel for the game.
120. Korey Ryan: 6’2” Shooting Guard, New Castle H.S.
He is a great perimeter shooter with a quick release. Korey has been a 4-year varsity contributor at New Castle and has been putting up huge numbers to start the year. He can come in and score points right away in college.
121. Micah Pier: 6’9” Center, Maconaquah H.S.
Committed: Indiana University-Kokomo (NAIA)
One of the tallest post players that the state has to offer in this class. I haven’t seen him much, but he does a pretty good job down low on both ends of the floor.
122. Brogan Gary: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Pendleton Heights H.S.
Committed: University of St. Francis (NAIA)
He is a very good perimeter shooter, can really stroke the 3-point shot. He is a pretty good athlete which lets him do some things inside, but he is at his best when shooting the 3. Brogan handles the ball well, may be able to slide over and run the point some. Should have a nice senior year with Kellen Dunham gone.
123. J.C. Faubion: 6’4” Shooting Guard, Indianapolis Lutheran H.S.
J.C. can really fill it up on the offensive end. He has put big numbers at Lutheran, and should be a very good pick up for a small college program. I like his size and ability to cause a matchup issue for defenses. Pretty good athlete too.
124. Jon Fleming: 5’7” Point Guard, Fishers H.S.
Quick, athletic point guard with good ball handling ability. I really enjoy watching Jon play. He is a very smart player that makes a couple of high IQ plays each game. His size keeps him from doing too much offensively, but he is able to penetrate the defense and finish with a nice floater some.
125. Levon Hamilton III: 5’11” Point Guard, Hammond H.S.
Interest: IU-South Bend (NAIA)
Levon is a good perimeter shooter and will lock you up defensively. He also is very quick with the ball in his hands. I really enjoy watching him play.
126. Michael Hoeing: 6’4” Point Guard, Batesville H.S.
Interest: IU-East (NAIA), Hanover (DIII)
Good size for a guy with his type of ball handling ability. Michael is very good in transition, can either go all the way to the rim and score or pass the ball up the court to a teammate. He isn’t a great shooter, but does do a pretty good job from mid-range. Has good vision, penetrates well, and also is a good defender. Good small school prospect.
Jaylen is a very athletic, but undersized, two-guard. I really like the way he shoots the ball from the perimeter; gets good elevation on his shot which lets him get it off over bigger defenders. Can be a good defender as well.
128. Jaylen Chambers: 5’11” Point Guard, Evansville North H.S.
A scoring point guard who can really fill it up from the perimeter. Jaylen would be a good fit for an up-tempo system that likes to score a lot of points.
129. Paul Furlin: 6’1” Point Guard, Hamilton Southeastern H.S.
A smart point guard who won’t turn the ball over. Paul isn’t going to take over a game or make all of the flashy plays, but he is a solid ball handler and distributor who can win games with. Also a pretty good 3-point shooter.
130. Greg Spina: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Martinsville H.S.
Interest: Franklin (DIII)
Greg is a very good spot up 3-point shooter. Plays with a high basketball IQ and works hard on the court. Even as a 6’3” guard he grabs quite a few rebounds. He is a throwback player who simply has a nose for the ball and plays the game the right way.
131. Tanner Watkins: 5’10” Point Guard, Lapel H.S.
Interest: Aquinas (NAIA), Trine (DIII), Hanover (DIII), Manchester (DIII), Wabash (DIII)
Tanner has been a starter since his freshman season at Lapel. He handles the ball very well with both hands and is a good scorer. He also does a very good job of distributing the ball and finding an open teammate; an extension of the coach on the floor. Good small college prospect.
Committed: Bellevue University (NAIA)
Bailey has been a contributor since day one at Jennings County. He is a heady point guard who really commands the floor and can lead a team. Good ball handler and passer. I really like watching Bailey play; just doesn’t make mistakes and finds ways to make his teammates better and give his team a chance to win. DIII programs need to watch him.
133. Drew Norton: 6’6” Power Forward, Lapel H.S.
Drew is a pretty good athlete and is very active inside of 12 feet. He rebounds the ball on both ends of the court and is especially effective on the offensive glass. He can finish around the basket well and shoots okay out to 15 feet, but does not handle the ball well.
134. Brendon Hardwick: 6’9” Center, Lapel H.S.
Interest: Elmhurst (NAIA)
This guy looks like a 30 year man, and is built like one too. He is a big, strong, wide-bodied kid who actually moves pretty well and has good hands. I have been really impressed with him the couple of times I have seen him; a good under-the-radar big man for any small school out there.
135. Collin Bridgeforth: 6’2” Shooting Guard, North Central H.S.
A good, strong guard who handles the ball well enough to play some point. Collin is also a good defender and just an all-around solid player who won’t make many bad plays. He is a solid Division III prospect.
136. Kalvin Miller: 6’3” Shooting Guard, Huntington North H.S.
Interest: IU-East (NAIA)
He has good length and is a great 3-point shooter. Kalvin has started to add some more things to his offensive game going to the basket, but still is primarily a shooter. Sweet lefty stroke. Really like his quick release which lets him get his shot off against tight defense. Works hard, smart player, keeps getting better.
137. Cullen Arnold: 6’5” Small Forward, Washington H.S.
Cullen is an all-around solid basketball player. He makes good decisions, is a good passer, and can shoot the ball pretty well. He will need to pack on some more muscle to make him more effective on the glass. I like his perimeter shooting ability for his size.
138. Jeffrey Turner: 6’2” Small Forward, Terre Haute South H.S.
He became one of my favorite players to watch late in the summer. Jeff is a hot and cold 3-pointer shooter, but when he is hot he can go off for 7 or 8 3′s in a game. He is a big guy, built like a nose tackle, but has great footwork and is actually kind of quick. Just an all-around scorer.
139. Muta Irving: 5’11” Point Guard, Broad Ripple H.S.
A great athlete who does a good job of getting to the rim. Muta is a solid all-around point guard who won’t turn the ball over too often. Not a shooting threat from the perimeter, but a good scorer inside.
140. Noah Reed: 6’1” Point Guard, Huntington North H.S.
Noah is a great shooter with a very smooth all-around offensive game. He isn’t the quickness or most athletic guard in the state, but he plays with a high IQ and won’t turn the ball over too much. A solid DIII prospect.
141. Toriano Jackson: 6’8” Power Forward, Columbus North H.S.
Runs the floor very well for a big guy. Toriano has good length and can block shots defensively. On the offensive end he can face up and shoot the ball pretty well. Needs to get stronger and more physical.
142. Leo Williams: 5’10” Point Guard, Arsenal Tech H.S.
Leo is a solid point guard who stays poised and handles ball pressure very well. He is a great athlete which lets him get around his defender and penetrate. I have liked what he does on the defensive end of the floor too. A good floor general that would be good at the DIII level.
143. Joseph English: 6’0” Point Guard, Indianapolis Washington H.S.
A solid player who won’t necessarily fill up the stat sheet, but will help your team win games. He has good vision and makes some really nice passes. English is very strong which lets him finish through contact around the rim. Doesn’t shoot it very well from the perimeter, but does a good job of getting to the basket.
144. Ja’Mario Wann: 5’10” Point Guard, Indianapolis Attucks H.S.
He is a cat-quick ball handler that likes to push the ball up the court. Ja’Mario has really good court vision but also can score the ball if you need him to. Averaged 15 points and 7 assists last season.
145. Nick Crays: 6’0” Point Guard, North Daviess H.S.
Nick is an athletic guard who can play either the 1 or 2 spot. He is a very good scorer and shoots the ball well from all over the court. He is very quick with the ball in his hands and can penetrate to either score or kick to an open teammate. Just a solid all-around guard who will do a little bit of everything for you.
146. Anthony Warrum: 6’1” Point Guard, Heritage Christian H.S.
Committed: Illinois State University (Football)
A very solid floor general. Anthony is a great passer that is always look for an open teammate. He handles the ball very well and does a good job of penetrating the defense going to his right and left. A good shooter from the perimeter as well.
147. Will Dixon: 6’1” Point Guard, Zionsville H.S.
Very good athlete and very quick. Plays alongside Andrew Dakich in the backcourt at Zionsville. I like the way he can attack the basket off the dribble. Doesn’t turn the ball over.
148. Avery Motes: 6’0” Point Guard, Danville H.S.
Avery is a scoring guard who really likes to shoot the 3-pointer. He is versatile enough, even at just 6’0,” to play the 1 or 2 spot. He has been a key contributor for Danville for a few years now.
149. Devontay Brent: 6’7” Center, Lawrence Central H.S.
Devontay is just an all-around big dude. He does some good things in the post and can rebound the ball. He isn’t the most agile guy on the court, but at the Division III level his size alone would allow him to be effective.
150. Aidan McEwen: 6’1” Point Guard, Clarksville H.S.
Good athlete. Aidan attacks the basket well off the dribble, has good body control while driving and good at absorbing contact. Gets after it defensively.
151. Aaron Daniel: 6’0” Point Guard, Charlestown H.S.
While Aaron is a better football prospect (as a QB) than a basketball prospect, he could definitely play at a small school if he wanted to. He is very strong and athletic which allows him to overpower some other point guards. Aaron is a do-it-all type of player that can pass, score, or rebound depending on what you need out of him. He would be a good fit for a DIII program.
152. Anthony Edwards: 6’5” Power Forward, New Albany H.S.
Interest: IU-East (NAIA)
Anthony is a good athlete for a “4″; he jumps well and is very active around the rim. He does a really good job of getting position in post and works hard on the glass. He will need to get a little stronger, but I really like him at the DIII level.
