PHI Top 250: 2020 New Faces


Posted On: 09/25/18 1:50 PM

The Prep Hoops Indiana Top 250 finished up this past weekend and with over 160 prospects from the area coming into Fishers High School, we had a great look at those players we knew, and a bunch we didn’t. There were a ton of great performances that made us look at guys in a new light. 

Today, we are diving into those players from the 2020 class. We found our guys that came into our view from this past weekend as new faces.  Here is the list.

Braxton Barnhizer – 6’2 SG 2020 – Lafayette Jefferson (IN)
Braxton is a tall scoring guard with some length and a solid jumper. He’s really good playing off the ball where he can get movement and spacing and if he does, he’s going to knock down the shot. Really structured player on the wing who could provide some size and skill as a move-in to Jeff this season.

Isaac Farah – 6’7 PF 2020 – Cathedral (IN)
Farah is a big forward with some strength on the frame but really solid mobility and creation. He’s not super deceptive but very functional when he wants to make a move and is tough to stop. Could develop into a solid rebounder/post finisher this season and be a name to track next summer.

Jake Johnson – 6’4 SF 2020 – Oldenburg Academy (IN)
Jake is a wiry strong wing who shot the ball really well and put the ball on the floor, looking to shoot it in the 15-22′ range. He’s got some length and handles that could develop into a player to watch in the class. Add in some strength and the skill could turn up a level.

Ben Lins – 6’4 SF 2020 – Covenant Christian-DeMotte (IN)
Lins is a big wing with some mobility and developing skill. He’s still a bit raw but when he made plays, thinking of how the frame could grow, he comes off as a very intriguing player to watch.  Good length and some handles with some upside coming into play now.

Simon Scherry – 6’2 SG 2020 – Heritage Hills (IN)
Scherry is a big guard who has handles enough to stay on the ball and make plays. He’s got a big frame and he’s built to handle the college game. Where he played best was with his dribble-drive game, getting into the lane and making plays off the bounce and finishing strong. Good upside and a guard that could draw in some serious interest.
