No. 5 5’10 ’17 Tim Leavell of Marion/ Marion HS

Leavell is a high academic player that will get recruited by schools in the Ivy League. He plays with a high basketball IQ and understands the game extremely well. We were impressed with his team first approach. He picks his spots on offense and can score in a variety of ways. More importantly, he is highly efficient from the 3-point line. In addition, Leavell plays hard on both ends of the court and was excellent with his “on ball” defense.


No. 9 5’11 ’17 Carson Lambring of Brownstown/ Brownstown Central

Lambring is a solid all around guard. He has good fundamentals and a good feel for the game. He has good shooting mechanics and it showed with his outside 3-point shooting. While he didn’t take a lot of them, he hit the majority of shots he took. Lambring is a system player and plays within the team structure. Rarely will you find him trying to manufacture his own points, but rather allowing the game come to him.


No. 14 6’0 ’16 Justin Thomas of Indianapolis/ Pike HS

Thomas is simply wired to score. He can score from all levels on the court and was one of the camp’s leading scorers. Thomas can knock down 3-pointers, score off the bounce and also make the midrange dribble drive pull up jumper. He’s aggressive on both ends of the court and makes things happen. In addition, Thomas uses his ability to penetrate to set up his teammates. Overall, a very productive day for Thomas and should see his recruitment pick up.


No. 20 6’1 ’16 Diante Raines of Anderson/ Anderson HS

Raines was one of the surprise players of the day. We were so impressed with his effort and energy throughout the camp. He came in with something to prove and he did just that! He attacked and punished the rims relentlessly at Lawrence Central. We liked the defensive intensity and pride on defense. He sat down low and his “on ball” defensive technique was excellent. Definitely a player that is under the recruiting radar!


No. 44 6’3 ’16 Franklin Nunn of Alexandria/ Liberty Christian

Nunn is a bouncy athletic wing that thrives in transition. He can put together some impressive highlight dunks and was outstanding in attacking the rim. Nunn does possess a good shooting touch and has solid mechanics. He can be effective in a catch and shoot or off the dribble. While Nunn is more suited as a wing guard, he does have good court vision. He’s a willing passer and makes good court decisions.


No. 51 6’4 ’18 Rilee Epley of Newburgh/Evansville Day

Consistency may just be Epley’s calling card. He plays at such a consistent pace and there are few downs in his overall game. He’s a high IQ player that will score from the framework of the offense. Epley is one of these guys that does a lot of little things well. He has a team first approach and plays well within the team structure.


No. 54 6’5 ’19 Cobie Barnes of New Albany/ Floyd Central

Only a freshman, Barnes simply has a terrific feel for the game. He has excellent size and skill set for his age/grade. It’s not often you find a young 6’5 freshman that has his playmaking ability. Barnes is the type of player others enjoy playing with. He’s a pass first PG and enjoys getting his teammates involved. Barnes is the ultimate team player and will definitely be one to monitor over the next four years.


No. 63 6’6 ’19 Aaron Etherington of Noblesville/ Hamilton Southeast

Etherington comes from a basketball family. His older brother Austin is now a senior at Butler and we expect the younger Etherington to follow in his brother’s footsteps. He already has an excellent basketball frame and his outside shooting touch will translate well at the D1 level. Etherington has outstanding 3-point range and shoots with efficiency. He has a bit of toughness on the court and plays with poise and maturity for his age/grade.


No. 74 6’9 ’17 Jaren Jackson of Carmel/ Park Tudor

Jackson is an extremely long and athletic forward. He has an impressive 7’2 wingspan and has a soft touch in the paint that can be extended out to the 3-point line. While in the post, he can use either hand and can score in multiple ways. That being said, his shot blocking ability may be this strongest attribute currently. He has impeccable timing and remarkable bounce. He gets his hands on a lot of shot attempts and has the ability to change the course of the game with his shot altering ability. He’s a top prospect nationally and we expect his stock to continue to rise.
