Indiana targets on new 2017 rankings

Here's a look at where Indiana recruiting targets came in on Scout.com's 2017 Top 50.

Evan Daniels and the rest of our Scout.com basketball recruiting team released an updated 2017 Top 50 list on Thursday morning. Here's a look at where some of the Indiana targets fell on the list.

3. Michael Porter, Columbia, Mo.: The 6-foot-8, 205-pound Porter is an Indiana native who owns an offer from the Hoosiers. He also has early offers from Kansas and Missouri.

15. Kris Wilkes, Indianapolis: Wilkes, a 6-foot-5, 160-pound forward from North Central High School in Indianapolis, has owned an Indiana offer for nearly two years. He's the top-rated Indiana player in the 2017 class.

23. Paul Scruggs, Indianapolis: Scruggs was at Hoosier Hysteria on Saturday and is the top-ranked Indiana guard in the class. Scruggs plays at Southport High School in Indianapolis and also owns an Indiana offer.

27. Matur Maker, Team Loaded: Maker, the younger brother of 2016 center Thon Maker, is 6-foot-9, 195-pound forward. He and Thon played for Team Loaded in Virginia last summer and Matur was a much-improved player by the end of the summer. Indiana was Matur's first offer.

45. Jaren Jackson, Indianapolis: Jackson, a 6-foot-8, 175-pound forward, plays at Park Tudor High School in Indianapolis. Indiana offered him a scholarship after Hoosier Hysteria on Saturday. Jackson is the son of former San Antonio Spurs guard Jaren Jackson Sr. and he played AAU ball with my younger brother, Mark, this past summer, so I have seen him extensively.

48. Dajour Dickens, Virginia: Our Rob Harrington reported this week that Indiana has been in contact with Dickens, a 6-foot-11 center from Hampton, Va. Indiana has had significant success recruiting the state of Virginia in recent years.
