Indiana Basketball Recruiting: Takeaways from IBCA Top 100

The 21st annual Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Top 100 Underclassman Showcase took place this past Saturday and multiple in-state Indiana recruiting targets were participating with guys like Flory Bidunga, Trent Sisley, and others all in attendance.

This was also a live evaluation period so division one coaches from across the country were also in attendance with schools such as Indiana, Purdue, Kansas, Michigan, Michigan State, Auburn, and lots of others all being represented.

Below are the takeaways from the Indiana basketball recruiting targets and more from the IBCA Top 100.

Flory Bidunga brought all the big stars out: Make no mistake about it, Flory Bidunga was who most of the high major coaches that were in attendance came to see in session one. Due to his presence at the IBCA Top 100, Bidunga brought in schools such as Indiana, Purdue, Kansas, Michigan, Auburn, and Cincinnati with even head coaches Mike Woodson (Indiana), Matt Painter (Purdue), Bill Self (Kansas), and Bruce Pearl (Auburn) making the trip to Brownsburg High School. With the news that now Duke is involved with Bidunga and a official visit has been set for this coming week, coaches like Woodson, Painter, Self, and Pearl will be ramping up their recruitment of the Kokomo big man. Even though it is hard to believe, Bidunga’s recruitment just got a little bit more interesting.

Trent Sisley was the main star in the second session: When it came to session two of the IBCA Top 100, there was not a bigger name than Heritage Hills power forward Trent Sisley participating. While after the first session you often see many division one coaches elect to leave and not come back for the second group, with Sisley being there programs like Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, Northwestern, and others all stayed. Sisley is coming off a big spring AAU season which saw his recruitment see yet another uptick so anytime coaches like Mike Woodson, Matt Painter, and Micah Shrewsberry can come out and see the versatile forward, they will.

Dezmon Briscoe might have been the most talked player that attended: As far as the 2025 in-state class, Crispus Attucks big man Dezmon Briscoe might be the biggest stock-riser out there right now. Briscoe participated in the first session of the IBCA Top 100 and often times had many coaches from schools such as Indiana, Purdue, Michigan State, Michigan, Cincinnati, Ball State, Indiana State, and many more following him to each court he played on. From sitting around coaches all day, I heard multiple coaches talk and ask about Briscoe so you can tell the interest level getting higher and higher. With his improved mobility, size, post scoring, and ability to stretch the floor, Briscoe is a name to keep an eye on moving forward.

Indiana remains interested in 2025 guards Braylon Mullins and Azavier Robinson: Two other guards that are on Indiana basketball’s radar are 2025 prospects Braylon Mullins and Azavier Robinson, who both played in the second session of the day. At multiple times throughout the second session, Both Indiana head coach Mike Woodson and assistant coach Brian Walsh were seen watching both guards. Mullins, who goes to Greenfield-Central, is one of the smoothest shooting guards we have in the state and is proving to be a high-volume scorer. Robinson, who attends Lawrence North (same school that Indiana guard CJ Gunn did), is one of the more electric and quick on-ball guards and is starting to get high major offers. While there is no official offer extended to both Mullins nor Robinson, they both sit firmly on Indiana’s radar.

KJ Windham continues to boost his stock: While he may not be on Indiana basketball’s radar currently, Ben Davis guard KJ Windham has been consistently boosting his stock since the start of the spring season. On Saturday, Windham played in the second session and had schools such as Miami (OH), Indiana State, Ball State, and other all watching the elite scoring lead guard. Windham plays for Meanstreets on the Nike EYBL circuit and has been riding a wave of momentum ever since helping Ben Davis win the Class 4A State Championship while remaining undefeated the entire last season. Windham can score at all three levels at a high level and if he keeps playing the way he has been, high major offers should start coming.
