If you missed it, Dustin gave his specific thoughts on 2012 recruits Jeremy Hollowell, Yogi Ferrell, and Ron Patterson in our last edition of MovementWatch. Check it out here for more details.
Yogi Ferrell (Park Tudor): In a blowout of Scecina, Ferrell tallied a double-double (17 points and 10 assists). And on Saturday in a more impressive venue (Bankers Life Fieldhouse) against a more impressive opponent (Ron Patterson’s Broad Ripple team), Ferrell carried more of the scoring load putting up 22 points, and he still dished out six assists in a win.
Ron Patterson (Broad Ripple): Patterson scored 17 points against the tough Park Tudor zone at Bankers Life, but the Rockets were dealt their fourth loss of the season by Yogi Ferrell’s Park Tudor squad.
Jeremy Hollowell (Lawrence Central): Hollowell hit a buzzer-beater 3-pointer to beat Devin Davis’ Warren Central squad on Thursday, making his point total 27 on the game. He continued to establish himself as the best scorer in IU’s 2012 class by adding 28 points and nine rebounds in his Saturday matchup.
Hanner Perea (La Lumiere): Perea suffered a minor sprained ankle and didn’t see the court this weekend. Doesn’t sound at all serious.
Peter Jurkin (UFCA): Jurkin had probably his most complete week of action of this season this past week, tallying 13 points and 12 rebounds on Thursday and coming out with another monster double-double on Saturday (17 points and 20 rebounds), both wins for UFCA. With UFCA done for the season after a postseason ban, Jurkin is even closer to being in candy stripes.
Collin Hartman (Cathedral): Hartman scored just 13 in his first game of the weekend, but he silenced some of those who wonder about his scoring totals, tallying a 22-point, game-high effort against Heritage Christian.
Devin Davis (Warren Central): Davis played really well in a losing effort against Hollowell, trying to take over the game in the second half and finishing with 23 points. Then, he added 17 in a weekend win over South.
Luke Fischer (Germantown, WI): Fischer didn’t play this past weekend, but he tweeted that the pins were out of his hand and that it’s “looking good”. Expect him to play soon.
BeeJay Anya (DeMatha, MD): In two huge wins, one on national TV, Anya scored 17 points (a team-high) and 15 points in two solid efforts.
Trey Lyles (Arsenal Tech): In typical fashion, Lyles tallied a team-high 21 points for Tech in a close victory.
James Blackmon Jr. (Bishop Luers): Will no longer be a part of RecruitWatch for the season, due to a season-ending knee injury. See ya next year, James.
Jaquan Lyle (Evansville Bosse): Lyle had by far his worst performance of the season this weekend, shooting less than 10 percent from the field and finishing with just six points in a loss to Castle. Castle absolutely shut him down.
Cliff Alexander (Chicago Curie): Alexander is beginning to look more and more like a national, possibly-out-of-reach prospect for IU. He tallied 20 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 blocks in one game this weekend. He then added another double-double, this time 12 points and 12 rebounds in another game. He will be a top five prospect in the post, no doubt.
Trevon Bluiett (Park Tudor): Bluiett came up big as Park Tudor’s No. 2 option this weekend, behind Ferrell. He tallied 21 and 17-point efforts against Scecina and Broad Ripple, respectively. He seems to be getting a more consistent scoring touch.
Aaron Brennan (Guerin Catholic): Brennan was off for the weekend after playing on Thursday, and in that game, a loss to Lafayette Catholic Central, Brennan tallied 19 points.
Grant Evans (Wapahani): No games for Evans and Wapahani this week.
