We are nearing the final week of the Indiana High School Basketball season. The sectional draw is on Sunday when teams will learn the beginning of their path to Gainbridge Fieldhouse. While the season is reaching the final stages there are still plenty of talented prospects looking for a home at the next level. Our state has players still available for college coaches at all levels. From Division I to Division III, NAIA, or Junior College there is talent still on the board. We will be highlighting the best unsigned seniors here in Indiana over the next few days beginning in the backcourt. Here are the best guards still available in the state of Indiana.
(Anderson H.S.): If you value putting the ball in the basket then you should be recruiting this bucket-getter. Carson is a strong left-hander who can absolutely stroke it from beyond the arc, has the ball on a string when attacking the basket, and has the physicality to make defenders bounce off of him. Probably the best pure scorer, especially off of the bounce, remaining in Indiana’s Class of 2023. The 6’2″ guard has reported offers from Milwaukee and South Carolina State while averaging 21.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 5.2 assists for an 18-3 Anderson squad. He can help a low-major in need of scoring.
(Lawrence Central H.S.): This talented guard has stepped into the primary scoring role and led Lawrence Central to a 13-7 season so far while averaging 17.3 points per game. Craig is an explosive athlete, creates his own shot at all three levels, and has the length to be very disruptive on the defensive end. He has played his way into an offer from Saint Francis, and is one of the most sought after Division III prospects in the state. Other scholarship level programs at the Division II or NAIA level that need some scoring in the backcourt should look into offering Craig as the state tournament gets underway.
(Southport H.S.): Dancler had earned himself a couple of Division I offers before suffering an injury that kept him off the floor all summer long. However, he has been back on the floor this season reminding people that he is one of the most talented guards in the state. The 6’1″ guard is averaging 18.7 points while shooting 57-172 from three-point range on the season. He is a dangerous shooter who can create his own shot off of the bounce, has the strength to play through contact, and has regained the burst he had prior to the injury. Low-major programs in need of a scoring guard should be offering Dancler RIGHT NOW.
(Gary 21st Century): There isn’t a more explosive player left on the board than this lightening quick guard out of Gary. Williamson is dynamic with the ball in his hands. He is an excellent passer, can get downhill to the rim in a hurry, and rebounds his position as well as anyone in the class. The 6’1″ point guard averages 16.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 9.6 assists for the Cougars who will be state championship contenders in Class 2A. Currently holding reported offers from New Orleans and Tennessee State this prospect is a no-brainer for low-major programs, especially those that want to play up-tempo.
(Pike H.S.): Woods has put together a huge senior season for Pike that has drawn the attention of several college programs. The 5’10” point guard has a smooth pull-up jumper, is extremely quick with the ball in his hands, and is as tough as they come on the defensive end of the floor. Has offers from the likes of IU-East and IU-South Bend along with a ton of Division III programs. Woods can absolutely contribute at the NAIA level and could make an impact for Division II programs as well. His toughness and skill level are exactly what you want in a winning program.
