This past weekend, the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 250 Expo took place up in Westfield, Indiana at the Jonathan Byrd’s Fieldhouse. Now, we are trying to break down what we saw. The following is a look at some of the best wings we saw in the morning session of 2019 and 2020 prospects.
Joe Andershock (6’6 – 2019 – Marquette Catholic). Andershock looked really solid during games as he was all over the floor. Loved how he played inside and out and has enough length to cause problems on the boards.
Bradley Nalley (6’3 – 2019 – Corydon Central). Nalley was one of the more surprising players. A name I had heard but never seen. Great size and aggressiveness. Frame allows him to attack really well off the bounce.
Corey Landers (6’2 – 2019 – Bishop Noll). Landers came into the games with a bang. He had a couple great plays in transition and a dunk or two. Big, strong kid with some bounce and length. Good defender as well.
Demarcus Vaughn (6’3 – 2020 – South Bend Washington). Vaughn really impressed with his rebounding and tougness around the rim as well as his ability to score the ball. Coaches were impressed all day.
Hayden Smithey (6’5 – 2019 – Bishop Dwenger). Smithey just continues to impress this summer and fall. He handles the ball really well for his size and has the confidence going too. Really putting things together a lot earlier than I thought.
Cobie Barnes (6’6 – 2019 – Floyd Central). Barnes was just ridiculous all day long. Nobody could even slow him down. He scored at will near the rim and made some triples for good measure. Just a force whenever he touched the ball.
Amari Sherrod (6’4 – 2019 – Bowman Academy). Thought Sherrod did a good job at being an all-around wing this weekend. Scored on drives and jumpers in mid-range. The athleticsim and frame make him very intriguing.
Walter Hankins (6’4 – 2019 – Lawrence North). Hankins is a bully of a guard. The guy played as strong as anyone else on the floor and overpowered guys on plays, whether it was getting loose balls or rebounds.
Harrison Eckel (6’3 – 2020 – Heritage Christian). This is the second time in two weeks we have seen Eckel and he’s grown on me. Decent wing player who looks to grow and handles the ball with confidence. Doesn’t shy from contact.
