IndyBall.com Impressions (2013)

The 2013 class might not quite be as good as the 2012 group, but it looks to be very good. Again, Eric Gordon All-Stars have a great group of prospects.

Basil Smotherman, Jr. 6'5 Heritage Christian is long, baby-faced, quick, athletic, and is a great shooter from the outside. He plays smart and within himself. He has reportedly been offered by Purdue already. I was really impressed with his game in the first couple times I have seen him.

Zak Irvin 6'4 Hamilton Southeastern is built like Smootherman with his long, wirey frame. He played JV this year for HSE and should be a nice second option to Gary Harris next year for them.

Devin Davis, Jr. 6'6 Warren Central was really active, plays hard, he looked comfortable on the perimeter although he did most of his scoring damage inside. He had a nice dunk driving from the arc in a half-court set. I see him being a wing in college.

RJ Currington, who is from Schererville but attends Oak Hill Academy in Virgina, was not at the tournament this weekend.

Darryl Baker 6'3 Jeffersonville (Team Southern Indiana 2012 Red) was playing after being out the high school season with a knee injury. Baker is strong, good court vision, and can shoot it really well from distance. Hopefully, he will be 100% soon and I will get to see how he really measures up with the other top 2013 players.
