STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Indiana girls basketball recruiting notebook >> Kent shoots her way to Missouri S&T
The Mad Bomber of Jennings County is going to the Show Me State. And believe me, she’s got a lot to show. Especially from long distance.
Jennings County senior sniper Addyson Kent has committed to Division II University of Missouri Science & Tech. Kent is more than just one of the best sharpshooters in the state though. She can pilot an offense as well and plays the point the with ease. Her leadership, high motor and dedication to defense set her apart. Last season, she averaged 16 points per game and shot 50 percent from downtown. In the fall, she’s an all-league volleyball player.
West Coast fanfare for Shade
A series of Pac-12 teams are hot in pursuit of Noblesville sophomore gunner Ashlynn Shade, a natural scorer pacing to be up there with Hoosierland’s all-time greats. Arizona State offered over last weekend. UCLA offered back in August.
As a fab frosh in 2020, Shade poured in 21 points per game to go with three dimes, six rebounds and four steals a night. Shade is 5-10, crafty and courageous. The workhorse combo guard is a rare breed of offensive weapon, able to seamlessly shift from slasher to shooter to Fastbreak finisher extraordinaire. She’s already considered the frontrunner for Miss Basketball 2023.
Sophomore Sensations: Three prospects to know out of the backcourt in the Class of ‘23
Taylor Farris (Northeastern G) — Straight fire with the ball in her hands, inflicts damage in a variety of ways.
Rashunda Jones (South Bend Washington G) — Elite slasher prospect, great motor, great instinct in the clutch.
Maci Chamberlin (Winchester G) — Maybe the best pure shooter in her class.
