Indiana’s Best

first_imgHow would you like to coach a team made up of these 5 players?  Xavier’s Trevon Bluiett (Park Tudor High School), Northwestern’s Bryant McIntosh (Greensburg High School), Indiana’s James Blackmon (Marion), Ohio State’s LaQuan Lyle (Evansville Bosse), and Purdue’s Caleb Swanigan (Homestead).  As you can see, all 5 of these played their high school ball in Indiana.Two of these players were in Batesville’s regional lineup.  They were Bryant McIntosh and LaQuan Lyle.  Another interesting fact is that most of these still have more than one year of eligibility left.I found a lot of this information from an Indianapolis Star article. It makes it a lot more interesting watching college games when you easily recognize some of the players involved because they played their high school ball in schools near you.  It will be fun watching these athletes play this year, because they all play in our area.last_img read more
