#112 6’11 2021 Cooper Land: Middle Creek High School
Having had the opportunity to watch Land in multiple settings over the course of the last year and a half, seeing his progression up close was really good to see. He’s starting to figure out how to translate his size into consistent productivity while never forcing the issue on either end of the court. He has nice timing and anticipation on the defensive end when protecting the rim with excellent touch around the cup on the offensive end. He should have a big role at Middle Creek this upcoming season.
#77 6’3 2021 Justin Taylor: Carmel Christian School
The strides Justin has made in his overall game cannot go understated. His above the rim capabilities with his accuracy from beyond the arc make him a dynamic inside/outside threat scoring the ball. He can guard multiple backcourt spots while constantly keeping the opposition on their heels with his blow-by ability with the ball in his hands. Expect Taylor to have a massive junior season with his recruitment picking up in the process.
#92 6’5 2021 AK Holden: Henderson Collegiate
Holden is doing a great job balancing the evolution of his skillset without drifting away from the productiveness he brings every game regardless of the setting. He’s a super explosive athlete that is a highlight waiting to happen and his transition into a true wing has been impressive to see. He’s much more comfortable slashing from the wing and making plays with the ball in his hands, as that progression continues, expect scholarship coaches to come calling around this time next year.
#87 6’4 2021 Nate Willis: Southside Christian
Willis is a smooth wing guard that is really efficient from beyond the arc and the kind of guy that will give you some big hustle plays. He crashed the glass for offensive boards off his misses and really set the tone for his teams energy throughout the contest. He’s an asset to any roster due to the way he carries himself on the court and his shooting ability. Expect a really nice junior season from Willis at Southside Christian.
#78 6’3 2021 Jackeem Herbin: The Burlington School
Herbin is such a smooth operator with the ball in his hands. He has a little bit of that herky jerky scorer in him that makes him really difficult to guard 1v1. He has a deep bag of tricks, the ability to take and make any shot on the court, and excellent vision to set his teammates up. If he can find a way to improve his overall consistency as the high school season quickly approaches, expect Herbin’s recruitment to pick up amongst scholarship coaches.
