Hoosier Shootout Notes Day 2

I have something to admit...I did not stay for the whole day of games today. I don't like to say it, but I left in the early evening. Weak on my part, but I did have a few things I wanted to get done tonight.

Indy Heat-Felder

Alexander Huston 6'1 PG Tipton showed that he can defend. He still gambles and gets out of position a lot which can lead to a lot of scrambling situations for the defense. He is a shooter first and everything else second.

Chandler Thomas 6'5 PF TBA
has had a lot of questions asked about him, his attitude, and his game among other things. He has the talent to play D-1, if he continues to expand his offensive game. He has the quickness, the strength, the motor to play at that level.

Brian Stolarz 6'5 SF Munster looks like his release has quickened a little bit...still needs work on becoming a perimeter player. I think he will end up being a low-major player when it is all said and done.

Brandon Muncie 6'4 SG Lawrence North
is athletic and long. Other parts of his game need work, but with those two things he can get it done if he really wants to.

Ron Patterson 6'4 SG Broad Ripple is really good. I saw him play in an open gym at Cincinnati last week and it looked like he could play in college right now. Not bad for a kid going into his sophomore year of high school. He is athletic and skilled...that is a tough combo.

Jeremy Hollowell 6'6 SF Lawrence Central is growing in height and in his game daily it seems. He might have the most upside in the 2012 class. He can really shoot it and is becoming more active rebounding.

Austin Burgett 6'7 SF Avon is still underrated and under appreciated in his recruitment so far. He is extremely skilled for a young big man. Burgett can shoot it and put it on the floor.

Zac VanDeWater 6'4 SG Whitko is a player to get to know. He can really shoot it, pretty quick laterally, good with the ball, and has been rebounding great lately. He is a mid-major type of player.

Tony Springmann 6'8 C Fort Wayne Dwenger is a beast. He is so strong and aggressive in the paint that he over powers most everyone right now. If he adds some range to his game and a couple post moves, he could be very much like Luke Harangody.

Kendal Griffin 6'4 SG Avon has had a good start to July and I heard he played well in June for his high school team. He is strong, a good defender, rebounds really well, and can also drive the ball. His shooting has been streaky lately because of injuries keeping him from getting as many shooting work-outs in as he would like.

Chrishawn Hopkins News

In the latest edition of the Chrishawn Hopkins news, he is the real deal. Quick laterally, jumps out of the gym, unselfish...maybe too unselfish at this point. He is constantly screening for teammates and directing them where to go. He gets to the rim at will and is also a very good shooter. Grades are a question...he might have to go to junior college, but if he qualifies he is a mid-major or higher recruit.
