The state’s top point guard is also the number one ranked prospect overall.(Fishers H.S. 2025) is likely to be a 5-star prospect nationally when those ranking services release their 2025 lists. At 6’6″, Haralson has tremendous size to pair with his elite passing ability. He is a truly special prospect with a ton of high-major offers to back it up.
This is a very deep position group with 28 prospects ranked among the state’s Top 100 overall.(Lawrence North H.S. 2025) is #3 overall in the class and holds an IUPUI offer. (Ben Davis H.S. 2025) and (Fishers H.S. 2025) are the next two point guards and are two of the best two-way prospects in the state. Both are Division I level football players as well. (Cathedral H.S. 2025) rounds out the top five at the position and comes in at #14 overall.
Here is a look at the Prep Hoops Indiana Class of 2025 Point Guard position rankings.
This skilled left-handed guard had a great summer playing with Indy Heat 2025 on the EYBL circuit. Smiley proved that he can play with the best of the best among his class on the national level. He’s a very good shooter, sneaky athletic, and has the playmaking skills you look for in a lead ball handler.
Cannady has some explosiveness to his game off of the dribble and is at his best playing in transition or getting downhill to the rim in the half court. He has certainly improved his outside shooting ability to the point where it is a real threat, but being in attack mode off of the bounce is still his bread and butter. Look for him, alongside his teammate, to take over the reigns in the Cathedral backcourt.
This 5’11” point guard with impressive length played his way into a significant role for Crispus Attucks as a freshman. That valuable starting experience will pay dividends as a sophomore especially after a strong finish to the 3SSB Circuit with Indiana Elite 2025. Despite his Top 20 ranking he is still flying a bit under-the-radar in terms of being one of the best guards in the Indianapolis area.
In terms of pure shot-making and scoring ability there aren’t many guards in Indiana’s Class of 2025 like “Papi” Rivera. The long, thin 6’0″ guard can score it from all three levels but is especially dangerous from beyond the arc. I’d expect him to have a breakout sophomore season in the backcourt for North Central this coming winter.
Couto is probably the best, most skilled player that you may not have heard of yet in this class. The sharp-shooting guard with a crafty game off the bounce earned an offer from Huntington after a great weekend at the Charlie Hughes Showcase in June and has a quite a bit of early low to mid-major interest as well.
Sampson really stood out to finish off the summer at GRBA Nationals in Fort Wayne. He is an explosive playmaker, a great finisher at the end of his drives, and showed the ability to knock down some shots off of ballscreen action as well. One of a handful of talented younger backcourt pieces at Fort Wayne Carroll.
Another one of the top young guards in the Fort Wayne area, Williams-Thomas is true point guard that shows off a high basketball IQ and feel for the game for his age. He is an excellent passer, plays with good pace in the half court, and score it from any spot on the floor as well. Poised for a big sophomore season.
A successful summer playing up with George Hill All Indy 2024 lead to this 6’1″ point guard earning his first offer from IUPUI. Carpenter scores it really well off of the bounce and can set up his teammates with great court vision and passing ability. He certainly has the upside to climb the point guard rankings over the coming years.
Rogers Jr. will suit up for Arsenal Tech this season after spending his freshman year at Crispus Attucks. He is a dynamic point guard with a tight handle that he uses to get to the rim or create his own shot from the perimeter. Has a good feel for the game playing off of a ballscreen. Good all-around playmaking ability.
Horvath burst onto the scene this summer leading EG10 2025 to a ton of success on the Prep Hoops Circuit while putting up some big time scoring numbers throughout the spring and summer. He’s a great shooter and is a creative finisher around the basket. Made the move from North Central to Park Tudor for his sophomore season.
