It Takes Two To Tango — Pair Of Indy Ballers Show Great Value As Recruits

The top two unsigned boys basketball players in the IHSAA’s senior class come from the Circle City in North Central’s Joey Brown and Ben Davis’ Sheridan Sharp.

Can you say BALLERS? These two are on the come-up and need more love.

Both are high-octane playmakers who play a high IQ, hard-nosed brand of hoops that every Hoosierland hoop head can appreciate. They represent everything a college coach wants in terms of value and upside.

Brown (6-foot-6 1/2) has offers from LSU. Illinois, Ball State and Toledo. He averaged 16 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists per game last winter. His versatility sets him apart — JB can play the point, the 2, the 3.

The sly 6-foot-2 Sharp is a sleeper on the rise and dotted the stat sheer for 14 points and 5 assists per outing. Sharp shows what an old-school floor general can still do in the modern-day era of positionless basketball.
