Hoosierland Hoopster Hot List — “On Their Grind” Edition

Ten playmakers slaying the summer hoops scene:

1 Braeden Shrewsberry (West Lafayette 6-foot-2 Jr.) — Electricity personified in the open court, cagey in the half-court set.

2 Ryan Conwell (Indianapolis Pike 6-3 Sr.) — Slasher who can shoot and glide, pick and pop and play super-glue defense.

3 Jalen Jackson (Ft. Wayne Carroll 6-2 Sr.) — Nails tough floor general, high-energy and efficiency personified.

4 Jermaine Coleman (Indianapolis Park Tudor 6-7 Jr.) — Getting busy, getting dirty, getting scary, a southpaw wing with mad swagger.

5 Sam Orme (Carmel 6-8 Jr.) — Is on the verge of seeing his recruiting resume erupt with high-major offers.

6 JJ Louden (Indianapolis Pike 6-6 Sr.) — Dripping with finesse, bringing the pain on the wing every time he steps on the court.

7 Billy Smith (Indianapolis Brebeuf 6-6 Sr.) — Pound for pound, the most underrated prospect at the two-guard spot in the Circle City.

8 Travis Grayson (Chesterton 6-0 Sr.) — Fire and Ice point guard, plays with a chip on his shoulder.

Kamari Jones (Lawrence Central 6-3 Jr.) — Supersonic Circle City Sleeper, will have a breakout ’22 campaign for the Bears.

10 Kobe Stoudemire (Jeffersonville 5-9 Sr.) — Hard as stone, smooth as silk.
