Trevon Bluiett is showing his scoring ability

INDIANAPOLIS — When Trevon Bluiett scored 21 points during the 2A state title game, it was seen as a surprise.

Bluiett, now a sophomore at Park Tudor, said during last week’s adidas Invitational that while he knows his role at the school, it does not diminish his ability to score.

“My mentality is just go and score,” Bluiett said. “Whenever my team needs me, I need to be there.

“During high school it’s more like we let Yogi do his thing, because that’s his team and he runs it. He’s the leader of that team. I just let him do that and when I come over here, I show them what I got.”

Bluiett, a 6-foot-5 wing, can certainly do that — he has routinely put up 20-plus points a game for Spiece Indy Heat so far this spring and summer.

Colleges have taken notice — Indiana offered Bluiett nearly a year ago and remains in the hunt for the wing.

Baylor, Marquette and Florida State are showing the most interest, though, and Purdue and Butler are also trying to schedule unofficial visits soon (Bluiett said he’ll also visit Indiana).

“It’s been a pretty good experience,” Bluiett said. “Since seventh grade I think I’ve been playing in front of (college coaches), so I am used to it now. To me it’s just nobody but people in the stands. I have to play my game.”

Bluiett is expected to keep growing, to 6-foot-7 and perhaps 6-foot-8, and that will allow him to develop into a more natural forward. He’s already physically strong, playing inside for Park Tudor and Spiece Indy Heat.
