By: SCOTT M. BURNSTEIN, July 11, 2021, 4:46 pm

1 Joe Walker (Warren Central 6-foot-5, 200 pounds Jr. WR) — David Bell 2:0. That’s really all that needs to be said.

2 Sam West (Greensburg 6-5, 200 Jr. WR) — A name everyone needs to know on the football field and the baseball diamond, just snared an Iowa State offer on the gridiron, then committed to Alabama for baseball in mid-June. 

3 Owen Wood (Indianapolis Cathedral 6-5, 300 Sr. OL) — Beast Mode 24/7 in the trenches, motor, moxie and mad intensity.

4 Solomon Williams (Carmel 6-0, 185 Sr. S) — Smart, savvy and hard-hitting, everything you want in a free safety at the next level.

5 Zach Williams (Westfield 6-5, 285 OL) — The definition of a sleeper on the line, stacked pancakes last year at a prolific clip.
