Indy Notebook: Day One

Indianapolis -- Collin Hartman, Jeremey Hollowell and Kellen Dunham were the top prospects we saw during our first day of the Indianapolis tour.

The first day of the Indianapolis tour included two stops. We started at Cathedral High school to see Andy Fagan's group of talented youngsters, including Collin Hartman.

After the open gym we drove across town to Greenfield (Ind.) for a workout at the Family Fun & Fitness Center. Butler commit Kellen Dunham and Jeremy Hollowell were the big names at the second workout.

Kellen Dunham, SG – Have always been a fan of the Butler commit, but Dunham really impressed during an evening workout in Greenfield (Ind.). He's grown and stands every bit of 6-foot-5. His jump shot is pure and extends well past the three-point stripe. But don't categorize Dunham, a standout at Pendleton (Ind.) Heights, as just a catch and shoot guy. He can go off a couple of bounces and really knows how to read screens. Brad Stevens scored a steal in this one.

Jeremy Hollowell, SF – Coming off a strong summer, where Hollowell jumped into the national top 30, Hollowell looked stronger and appeared to have added some good weight to his frame. One of the knocks on Hollowell, a 6-foot-7 wing, has always been his passiveness, but today he played hard, dove on the ground for loose balls and looked to score on offense. He's equipped with a nice jump shot and he's learning to use fakes and hesitations to get plays going to the rim.

Tyler Corley, PG – A teammate of Hollowell's at Lawrence Central, Corley is a 5-foot-9 lead guard with notable speed. He showed an extra burst in the open court and he really pushed the ball at every opportunity. Since the summer, Corley has added weight and sports a strong, chiseled frame that he uses well when he's attacking the basket. Going forward he'll need to tighten up his handle some, but he definitely has some talent.

Jared Drew, SF – This 6-foot-6 wing is a terrific addition to the Indianapolis (Ind.) Cathedral squad. A transfer from Lawrence Central, Drew is a tough, hardnosed wing forward. He's a very good athlete that can dunk with some power with a running start. He's quick off the ground and has the potential to be a very good defender down the road. Offensively he's still a bit raw, but he's a live body that will hit the glass and can score off slashes to the rim.

Collin Hartman, SF – Known for his terrific shooting, the 6-foot-7 wing prospect didn't disappoint during open gym. Hartman carved up a pretty good defender and showed an ability to use his body, come off screens and use one-dribble pull-ups. Hartman is a better athlete than given credit for and he impressed us by attacking the glass and grabbing boards. He's made the full transition to the wing and he has the look of at least a top 50 prospect in the 2013 class.

David Hill, PG – Still a relatively unknown prospect in Indianapolis, Hill, a 5-foot-11 lead guard, is primed for a good season at Cathedral. He'll likely be handed the reigns at the point guard spot and he's got quite a few weapons around him. Hill changes speeds quite well, sees the floor and showed tremendous leadership skills during the evening open gym.

Collin Hartman claims scholarship offers from Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame and Illinois. He also mentioned Butler, Ohio State, North Carolina, Michigan State and Stanford. He took visits to Indiana and Purdue this past weekend.

Jared Drew claims offers from IUPUI, IPFW, Indiana State and Wisconsin-Green Bay. He also has interest from Bradley, Saint Louis, Southern Illinois and Butler.

David Hill, who visited Michigan this past weekend, has received interest from the Wolverines, as well as Indiana, Michigan State, Saint Louis and Evansville.

Jeremy Hollowell said at one point he was thinking about making an early decision. Now he's planning to wait it out. He listed Ohio State, Indiana, Purdue, Xavier, Illinois, Florida, Oregon, Cincinnati, Michigan, Wake Forest and Louisville.

Tyler Corley mentioned Creighton, UTEP, Western Michigan, Oakland, Nevada, Ball State and Dayton as schools that were showing him early interest.

We didn't get to see Jacobby Bledsoe quite as much as the others during the evening workout in Greenfield, as he showed up towards the end. With that said, we were impressed with his speed, ability to get in the lane and vision. He pushed the break at every opportunity and had a few nice pa
