STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Need to know basis >> Letting loose the LB in Indiana
Top 10 LBs In The IHSAA You Don’t Know About But Need To ASAP
1 Devon Tippmann (Ft. Wayne Bishop Dwenger 6-1, 190 Sr.) — Beast Mode 24/7, the most low-key dominant defensive player in all of Hoosierland.
2 Domanick Moon (Ft. Wayne Snider 6-2, 215 Jr.) — Masterpiece in the making sideline to sideline, best value in the recruiting game at the outside linebacker spot in his class right now.
3 Cornell Branch (Michigan City 6-0, 195 Jr.) — Packs quite a punch crunching bones and putting ball carriers on their backs, elite closing power on his wrap-ups.
4 Brendan Segal (Lafayette Jefferson 5-10, 205 Jr.) — Just a playmaker in every way, classic middle linebacker specimen, empties the clip every time out.
5 Dylan Dingman (Valparaiso 6-2, 235 Jr.) — Brings the pain every snap, bull in a china shop type.
6 Kyler Newcom (Lowell 5-10, 180 Sr.) — Jackrabbit quickness, natural instinct, great technique.
7 Joey Calvert (Indianapolis Bishop Chatard 6-0, 185 Sr.) — Rugged, intelligent, grip-it-&rip-it gridder, ready to roll no matter what, the definition of a quarterback of a defense.
8 Jacob VanGorder (East Noble 5-10, 185 Sr.) — High motor, knows how to lay the lumber, might not be getting the love he deserves in the recruiting department.
9 Keagan O’Connor (Lafayette Central Catholic 5-10, 220 Jr.) — About to make a lot of noise these next two years.
10 Jaden Browder (La Porte 5-8, 185 Sr.) — Plays bigger than his size, mega range, mega pop on his tackles.
