STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Burney’s most underrated boys hoopsters in Indiana’s class of 2021

By: , April 23, 2020, 4:05 pm

Five For Fighting — Blasting On To The Radar, Baller Style

1 Keon Thompson (Merrillville G) — Pure electricity with the rock in his hands. If he played in Indy, he’d get more love and would be considered a Mr. Basketball frontrunner for next winter. … 30 ppg. don’t lie!

2 Gus Etchison (Hamilton Heights G) — Firepower personified shooting the ball, heats up in a hurry, tough as nails.

3 Quimari Peterson (Gary West Side G) — Slick but gritty point guard who thrives under pressure.

4 Blake Sisley (Heritage Hills F) — Incredible upside on the wing, represents possibly the best value recruiting wise in his class.

5 Malik Stanley (Warren Central G) — A Circle City assassin attacking the rack, a finisher, a gamer in every way, just scratching the surface on his potential and that’s a downright scary thought.

Bonus Byte

Most underrated with a high-major offer:

Brooks Barnhizer (Lafayette Jefferson G/F) — Does it all, does it with precision, plays with a chip on his shoulder and out grinds the comp.
