As South Hamilton guard Logan Peters continues to develop on both sides of the ball, his stock continues to rise.
The 6-foot-2 junior had already been identified as one of the best defenders in the state, now, he’s working to develop a larger offensive arsenal.
“I would say my greatest improvement has been my 3-point shot. I’ve been working in the gym a lot with my coach. And then my handles, for the Cornsharks right now, I’m playing a lot of point guard, so it’s a good opportunity to work on my handles,” said Peters.
“And my defense has picked up a lot, and I think I’ve taken it to another level where I can guard people that are quicker than me, and I can guard guys down low.”
As a junior at South Hamilton Peters was crucial in helping them back to state for a second straight season. He averaged 12 points per game on 55 percent shooting, 1.8 steals and a team-best 5.5 rebounds per game.
“I thought I played alright, there was a stretch where I thought I was playing great towards the end of the year. And my teammates Marco (Balderas), Connor (Hill), they really did a good job of feeding me the ball when I was hot,” said Peters.
“Going to state was awesome, but we really want to take the next step and win a state title, so that’s really our goal for this next year is to obviously make it there, but to win a state title once we do.”
Logan Peters is ranked by Prep Hoops as a top 75 prospect in his class. To see the full ranking of Iowa’s 2019 class, click here.
But before that, he’ll be competing with a sharp and well-oiled Iowa Cornsharks Select squad this spring and summer.
“There’s just really a great group of guys in that program, I’ve known a lot of the guys for awhile. I haven’t really played with them up until this spring, I’ve played against them a lot,” said Peters.
And he hopes to see his burgeoning recruitment continue to take off.
“I’ve been talking to Iowa Wesleyan a little bit, and then my AAU coach said Nebraska Wesleyan was interested, and Grand View,” said Peters.
“I really want to pick up an offer. I just got to play well, show what I can do, and show college coaches that I can play at the next level.”
