Something new we are looking at this year is looking at different regions or quadrants in the state. There are many areas and hotbeds of talent in the state and we want to take a little bit more of a microscope to them to see what the nuances of the state will produce in each class. This is our look at Region 1 in Northwest Indiana.

Breakdown: When breaking down prospects into quadrants or regions, we look at those different areas with regards to distance, rivalries, and hotbeds of talent. In the first quadrant, it is the Region and surrounding areas. From as far south as Lafayette all the way east to South Bend.
This area of the state looks a little more built up than in years past. There are quite a few players from the Lafayette area and the Region has some legit top end talent to play around with. South Bend isn’t particularly deep right now but the two South Bend St. Joseph’s players are really solid.
This area should produce some DI talent and as many as four or five. Past that, there is tons of depth and there are many intriguing players to watch with guys like Max Grimes, Quimari Peterson, and Luka Balac. This is the deepest part of the state outside of the Indianapolis area and that isn’t usually the case anymore.
