Sam Orme Sam Orme 6'8" | SF Carmel | 2023 State IN 6’6 PF 2023 Carmel Jaylen Mullen Jaylen Mullen 5'11" | PG North Daviess | 2023 State IN 5’10 PG 2023 North Daviess Braden Walters Braden Walters 6'5" | SF Linton-Stockton | 2024 IN 6’5 SF 2023 Linton-Stockton Luke Almodovar Luke Almodovar 6'2" | SG Noblesville | 2023 State IN 6’2 SG 2023 Noblesville Jared Bonds Jared Bonds 6'5" | SF Carmel | 2023 State IN 6’5 SF 2023 Carmel Caleb Washington Caleb Washington 6'6" | PF Floyd Central | 2023 State IN 6’6 PF 2023 Floyd Central Kaden Oliver Kaden Oliver 6'2" | PG Madison | 2023 State IN 6’1 PG 2023 Madison Logan Webb Logan Webb 6'3" | SF Linton-Stockton | 2023 State IN 6’4 SF 2023 Linton-Stockton Joey Hart Joey Hart 6'3" | SG Linton-Stockton | 2023 State IN 6’4 SG 2023 Linton-Stockton One Player To Watch:  Sam Orme Sam Orme 6'8" | SF Carmel | 2023 State IN Orme is one of the more talented players in the 2023 class, and despite the incredibly talented Carmel roster this year, Orme still found ways to make an impact. Orme played in nearly every game and shot it at 49% from the floor and from behind the three-point line. In addition to his outstanding shooting, Orme is aggressive on the glass on both ends of the floor, and he plays very solid defense. Sam has a high-upside, and I can’t wait to see what he can do while being one of the signature players on his team. One Player We Need To See More:  Kaden Oliver Kaden Oliver 6'2" | PG Madison | 2023 State IN Oliver is a bigger point guard who has a lot of talent. He is very quick with the ball in his hands, and his basketball IQ allows him to almost always make the right play. He also plays with a ton of confidence. He definitely has the ability, but the couple of times that we have seen him, he hasn’t produced offensively in the way that we would like to see. This summer could be his real chance to show us that offensive ability that has been missing over the last year or so. One Player That Should Surprise:  Jaylen Mullen Jaylen Mullen 5'11" | PG North Daviess | 2023 State IN Mullen is an elite guard who absolutely dominated for North Daviess throughout the school year. He is a scrappy player who plays with a ton of energy and a ton of aggressiveness which allows him to outplay everyone else on the court. Last summer, we talked about wanting to see him score the ball more, and we were able to see that during the high school season. Because of this, he has the potential to surprise everyone with his much-improved game that could lead to a breakout summer.
