Gatorade names Jordan Hulls Indiana Player of the Year

  • 03/25/2009 11:45 am in

Alex has been slurping Bloomington South’s Jordan Hulls the last few months, and deservedly so: He’s been having quite the impressive season and has his team on the verge of a state title.

Alex has not been the only one noticing the play of Hulls, though. Gatorade has named him the Indiana Player of the Year. He joins some pretty good company the last few years as Tyler Zeller was your winner last year, Eric Gordon grabbed it two years back, Greg Oden snatched it the previous two years, and um, A.J. Ratliff won it the year before that.

As the Basketblog notes, Mr. Basketball isn’t announced for another two weeks, but one could assume Hulls has a good shot at that one, too.

    Food for thought….

    Is it strange that the best player in Indiana, on the 3rd best high school team in the country, is ranked 89th or worse on most recruiting sites? Something doesn't add up.

    Sounds like UCONN's Calhoun has been readiing Kelvin Sampson's diary…..

    I know we don't have any scholarships available..or do we? I'm still confused. But can we PLEASE get Seth Curry, younger brother of Stephen to transfer to IU! He's leaving Liberty and led freshman in scoring this season.

    Congrads to Jordan Hulls. Hope we're not putting too much pressure on this kid.

    We actually could get Seth Curry, but i heard that IU is going after Darius Smith.

    And on the Calhoun thing, all this guy dose is recruit thugs I can imagine that he has been doing this for years and i bet he has lent a couple bucks under the table.

    The subject about how Indiana kids is interesting and i have thought of this to…but look at it this way were do most kids who are mid-major stars for example (Aj Graves, Matt Howard, Gordon Hayward, George Hill, etc.) come from Indiana…what can you say is that state won't produce a Greg Oden every year but the number of prospect that are over looked that become good players are from Indiana

    Wats the deal with Seth Curry? Are we gonna get him?

    I'm not UConn fan, and I hope they go down if the staff committed violations, but what do you mean all Calhoun recruits are “thugs”? I'm not saying every player he's had is a perfect citizen, but what school can say that?

    I'd hardly call Ray Allen, Richard Hamilton, Emeka Okafor or Donyell Marshall thugs. I could list more, but I think Ray Allen alone clears up that argument, he's one of the most respected players of the last 10-15 years in the NBA.

    Whats the deal with Seth Curry? Could we get him or is it just speculation. Do we even have enough scholorships for him.
