Purdue won’t have a senior All-Star this year since Jaden Ivey is not eligible (only IHSAA member schools are, an LaLumiere is not an IHSAA member), but it will have a junior All-Star. Caleb Furst, the lone 2021 commitment so far, was named to the core group of the junior All-Stars, which will take place in all games:
Brooks Barnhizer, 6-6, G, 20.7, Lafayette Jeff, undecided
Caleb Furst, 6-10, F, 21.7, Fort Wayne Blackhawk Christian, Purdue
Trey Kaufman, 6-9, F, 25.8, Silver Creek, undecided
