A few years ago, Indiana came to the backyard of Purdue University and withdrew Rob Phinisee from Lafayette.
Even consider us.
One of the most shocking developments on the recruiting front was that Purdue University entered southern Indiana, captured the top 40 national recruits, and removed Trey Kaufman from Silver Creek near Louisville (Silver Creek). Creek HS) withdrew.
So far, his performance at Silver Creek has been impressive. As a sophomore in 2019, he led the Silver Creek team to the 3A national championship with an average of 15.1 points, 9 rebounds and a 40% three-point field goal percentage. He only scored 4 points in the Champions League, but he had 12 rebounds and 6 assists in the all-around game. This is a 52-49 victory for Culver Academy, which includes Ethan Brittain-Watts (currently playing at Boston University), Trey Galloway (now at IU) and Deontae Craig (four-star defensive end, and finally at Iho Huazhou). His team defeated their opponents 25-3, three of which ended with 15 points.
Last season, Silver Creek ranked first at 25-2, winning the division title before the IHSAA state championship closed. These included a 78-74 victory against Furst on December 14. Even in his freshman year in 2018, his team achieved a 20-6 championship title. His teammate Kooper Jacobi dedicated himself to playing in Toledo.
In short: Purdue University won the two best forwards in Indiana 2021 and the two highest-rated players in the category. Kaufman is 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 210 pounds, while Furst is 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 215 pounds, with four weights more, but they are also interchangeable. Although he is not as highly regarded as Harrison Ingram, he is still a highly acclaimed recruit and a good salary.
