Purdue Basketball Recruiting: Indiana Junior All-Stars Named

New, comment

A few Purdue targets will play this summer as junior All-Stars in Indiana.

Purdue is still waiting for its first 2014 Men's basketball commitment, but there is a good chance a future Boilermaker was honored today. The Junior All-Star team has been released and several 2013 Purdue targets are on it.

2013 Boys Junior All-Stars


James Blackmon Jr., 6-2, G, Fort Wayne Luers

Trevon Bluiett, 6-5, F, Park Tudor

JaQuan Lyle, 6-4, G-F, Evansville Bosse

Trey Lyles, 6-10, F, Indianapolis Tech

Byrant McIntosh, 6-3, G, Greensburg

Mack Mercer, 6-9, F, Plymouth


C.J. Coleman, 6-1, G, Mt. Vernon (Fortville)

Grant Evans, 6-3, G, Wapahani

Aaron Korn, 6-4, G-F, Frankton

D.J. McCall, 6-5, G, Fort Wayne Concordia

Tayler Persons, 6-2, G, Kokomo

Tyler Wideman, 6-7, F, Lake Central


Aaron Brennan, 6-6, F, Guerin Catholic

Ernie Duncan, 6-2, G, Evansville Harrison

Jacob Johnson, 6-6, G-F, Mooresville

Zach McRoberts, 6-6, F, Carmel

Sean Sellers, 6-6, F, Greensburg

P.J. Thompson, 5-11, G, Brebeuf Jesuit

Purdue has officially offered several of these players, but obviously won't get all of the offers. For example, Jaquan Lyle holds a Purdue offer, but has already ruled out the Boilers.

Bluiett is the highest rated player considering Purdue, but I think he would shock many if he ended up at Purdue since two former HS teammates will be at Indiana next season in Kevin Ferrell and Paul Bayt.

Other players with at least interest from Purdue are Mack Mercer and Aaron Brennan. Purdue could also take a look at Kokomo's Tayler Persons, who acquitted himself very well this past season and would be a nice defender and possible two-guard that can hit the three.Tyler Wideman has also long been on Purdue's radar.

I will be at the state finals on Saturday all day and a few of these players will take part. McIntosh from Greensburg (Indiana State commit), McCall from Ft. Wayne Concordia, Sellers from Greensburg, and Zach McRoberts of Carmel are also there.
