IU RecruitWatch: Weekend recap

Chris Howell | Herald-Times


Yogi Ferrell (Park Tudor): Ferrell and Panthers handily took care of Triton Central over the weekend, winning by 27 on the road. And Ferrell had a solid night again, tallying 18 points. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I think Ferrell is the most likely of the 2012 class to start right away at Indiana.

Jeremy Hollowell (Lawrence Central): Dustin and I took in Hollowell’s game against South on Friday, as South coach J.R. Holmes through everything and the kitchen sink at Hollowell, running a box and one and putting South forward Michael Bower in his face on every single play. Hollowell didn’t respond that well to that, scoring just six points and tallying seven rebounds. Dustin and I differ a bit in our thoughts on Hollowell, but again, he’s seen him much more than I have. Still, I think he’s not the type of player to carry a team.

Ron Patterson (Broad Ripple): Patterson didn’t score much either against Indianapolis Northwest, tallying seven points in a 12-point win. But Patterson isn’t necessarily a scorer at the next level — he’s averaging more than 17 ppg, anyway, this season — so no need to worry.

Hanner Perea (La Lumiere): Perea ended up with the week off after the Clash at the Cameron was canceled. He plays tonight though in a tournament that runs through Dec. 22.

Peter Jurkin (UFCA): Jurkin showed a bit more of his scoring touch last Thursday as he scored 17 points in a 19-point victory, but Jurkin hasn’t seen any action since then.


Devin Davis (Warren Central): In a close matchup with Ben Davis — Warren Central won by four in overtime — and Davis came up with a team-high 15 points. He’s been impressive through five games for the Warriors.

Collin Hartman (Cathedral): 4-1 Cathedral won another game on Saturday night and Hartman contributed 14 points in that effort. He seems to be coming along quite nicely.


James Blackmon Jr. (Bishop Luers): Blackmon Jr. has been a man on fire lately, scoring the basketball at one of the highest clips in the state of Indiana. He put up 40 points against Howe on Saturday and 22 points to beat Concordia, both wins that saw a whole lot of James Blackmon Jr. He’s developed a heck of a scoring edge as just a sophomore, and he should only continue to get better.

Trey Lyles (Arsenal Tech): Lyles continued his consistent double-figures play by putting up 16 on Indianapolis Washington on Friday.

Targets to watch

2013 Bo Zeigler (Detroit Community): Zeigler got into some trouble with fouls against Romulus over the weekend, and as a result, finished with just seven points. He did tally 10 rebounds though.

2013 Derek Willis (Bullitt East, Ky.): In the King of Bluegrass tournament (awesome!), Willis tallied 16 points in a 10-point win. The even continues tonight in Louisville.

2013 BeeJay Anya (DeMatha, Md.): Anya didn’t take many shots, he made just three field goals, but he was solid from the line against Archbishop Carroll and ended with 13 points.

2013 Luke Fischer (Germantown, Wisc.): Fischer was solid offensively in two huge-margin wins, scoring 14 and 26 for 7-0 Germantown.

2014 Jaquan Lyle (Evansville Bosse): Washington got Lyle into early foul trouble, as the top-flight sophomore ended with just five points, nine assists and six rebounds.

2014 Cliff Alexander (Chicago Curie): Hasn’t played since we last did RecruitWatch.

2014 Grant Evans (Wapahani): Evans got hot from the perimeter in the second half of Wapahani’s game against New Castle, but despite his best efforts, the rest of his team couldn’t manage much, falling in a 35-point loss. With 26 points, Evans accounted for more than half of his team’s offense.
