LaPorte La Lumiere and Indiana Elite forward Hanner Perea is garnering national attention for his play at last week’s adidas Invitational including being labeled the “premier interior athlete in the 2012 class” by Rivals.com.

In addition to our highlights of Perea in super pool play versus Connecticut Basketball Club, Dream Vision and the Atlanta Celtics, Inside the Hall compiled video of the talented IU commit and Colombia native from three tournament games from Friday and Saturday in the embedded media player below. (Note: You can expand the video to full screen by using the arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the player.)

    He is really improving each month.  Love it!  Hopefully he can control his foul issues that he ran into with last weekend’s tournament.  Got to have him on the floor 🙂

    The versatility was exactly what I was thinking about with this bunch.  There aren’t a lot of college teams that can come at you from multiple directions and consider them all positions of strength.  There’s speed (and vision,) at the point with Yogi; there’s deft passing and touch in the post with Zeller, there’s strength/explsion on the block with Hanner; Hollowell can do just about anything he wants…that hasn’t even addressed the defensive end where I envision Patterson guarding anyone from 1-3 who might appear to be a problem (and I’m not convinced there aren’t a few 4s he could handle.)

    The thing i love most about HP is that he just knows where the ball is gonna go off the rim and crashes in for the put-back. I’ve got a potential nickname for him: (along the lines of comparison to Dwight Howard being Superman) HPs bat-like sonar around the rim, and the way he flies/darts in the air…he’s Batman;)

    There are going to be so many players getting ripped by their coaches in a couple years for not boxing this dude out.

    Holy crap!  That Hanner to Yogi to Hanner sequence is CRAZY!!!  Hanner looks a ton better; more smooth  and in control.  The guy is going to be a beast from the get-go.  He’ll start as a freshman; heck, he’d start next year (who would you rather play – Pritchard or Hanner? [don’t get me wrong, I like Tom; but still . . . .])

    Can’t wait to see Hanner and Vic on the court together.  Might make for the highest flying duo in the country.

    You mean we will have 2 players over 6’9″ that are not stuck in mud? Not sure I believe it.

    You hit the nail on the head.  I have watched him 5-6 games.  He needs coached up on defense.  Way too often his body is out of position trying to make the big play.  If he can understand he just needs to stay in front of his man, be concerned only with his position and then grab the rebound or go for the block when its there.  Right now he tries to make the big play all the time and / or just is not yet disciplined on defense.  Once he gets that he will be very tough on defense.  Its too bad Adams, in my opinion, does these kids a diservice and doesn’t coach more defense.  I am confident Crean will remedy that.

    It is easy to see Hanner’s talent. What I love in these clips and when I saw him in the tournament in Bloomington is how hard he works. It is great for him to have such crazy hops and quickness but they could be wasted if not for his high motor. 

    He is still very raw, but with his high activity he is constantly disrupting the opposing offense and effects an incredible about of rebounds. He and Zeller will be amazing in the middle. Zeller can draw a double team often in the post, leaving Hanner there to clean up. Plus they will be the very fastest front court anyone could imagine. 

    Not to mention how easy ours guard like Remy and Yogi will make it for them.

    I just hope we have Hanner for more than two seasons.

    I don’t see what Hanner brings that Pritchard can’t already do

    He’s got some moves with his back to the basket.  I’ve been hearing what a liability he is offensively, but he’s a little more polished than I expected.  He can execute a drop step from either side of the lane, and has a hook shot thats coming along.  I love his ability to finish above the rim, even in traffic.  He appears to have a nose for the ball, and has the ability to rebound outside of his “zone”. 

    Most of the time, Hanner will the 5th option on the floor, with most of his points coming on runouts and putbacks.  What a weapon he’s gonna be.

  • You have to love the offensive put backs.  He is super quick.  I knew he could jump – the impressive aspect is how quickly he reacts.  Looks a little like shawn Merrian for the Mavs…not great outside shot but athletic, quick, and he is developing good chemistry with my main man Yogi…I wish Yogi were here now!
