Video, scouting notes: Hanner Mosquera-Perea

2012 LaPorte La Lumiere forward and IU signee Hanner Mosquera-Perea scored 12 points and grabbed five rebounds in a 61-45 win over Detroit Country Day on Saturday at Lawrence Central.

Inside the Hall was there and we’ve compiled over a minute of highlights of the high-flying senior in the embedded media player below:

Read our scouting notes from Mosquera-Perea’s performance after the jump.

Notes: Mosquera-Perea spent some time on the bench with foul trouble, but the 225-pound forward was able to make an impact on a La Lumiere team stacked with Division I talent. He threw down two thunderous alley-oop dunks, which he’s become known for, that created a buzz in front of a nearly full house at Lawrence Central.

Mosquera-Perea also scored a couple baskets in the paint against contact and showed that he isn’t afraid to play with aggression around the basket. His fast-paced motor and ability to run the floor, which were on display last spring and summer, have continued to improve.

Mosquera-Perea struggled to score from further away from the basket, but he looked comfortable shooting the mid-range jump shot and going to the right-handed hook shot in the post. Mosquera-Perea said afterward that he continues to work on his perimeter shot and is trying to use his hook as his “go-to” move.

He’s solid when going after the ball as a rebounder, but Mosquera-Perea can struggle at times to catch the ball on offense. But at the end of the day, Hanner Mosquera-Perea showed why he has the potential to be an impact piece at Indiana. He has good size, unbelievable athleticism, is a capable defender and shot blocker and plays with a great amount of energy. He’ll need to continue to diversifying his ability to score, improve his hands overall and spend time in the weight room, but the tools are there for him to grow into a difference-maker.

    How developed is Hanner’s post game? Does he look comfortable with his back to the basket?

    I’ve been watching him for a while now and I’ve seen him play in person and on film.  This kid just gets better all the time.  Pretty much just a dunker and rebounder at first but he has developed some nice moves a decent looking jumper and is impossible to keep off the boards unless you put a body on him.  He does need to get bigger, he is strong though (look at his arms) but the kid is really thin otherwise.  If he can develop a handle on the ball his post moves are going to be nice cause he’s quick too.  To sum it up, he’s come a long long way in a short amount of time.

    Wouldn’t it be nice for those that only visit this site occasionally to add the player’s number to the text?

    I’ve seen him play a dozen times and his pregame warmups before this game were by far the best I’ve seen. His was hitting jump shots out to the 3 pt line at a pretty high clip. Great rotation on his shots. He’s never going to be a jump shooter but he’s going to be able to hit a 15 footer prettyregularly if teams play off to protect against the drive.

    Sky is the limit here. After seeing what coach has done with Vic, I can only imagine what he can do with Hanner.

  • Jcristee83

    225 for Hanner is a good starting point, it’s more than CZ weighed and CZ is taller. Hes got the body to put on a lot more muscle, his shoulder are so wide. If he good put on 5-10 pounds of muscle before summer training. Once Je’Nay Jackson gets his hands on Hanner, it will be over. I wouldn’t be surprised if hes at least 240 by the start of next year. I believe he can handle this weight and keep his athleticism, but I would want his athleticism first, so I would be fine with less weight gain. As others have said, Sky is the limit.

    Hanner will be a contributor next year only if his athleticism continues to translate to the defensive end (not just blocking shots) and on the offensive glass.  Interesting that all you hear is about how is offensive game continues to “develop”.  We DO NOT need Hanner to score 15 a game next year.  Who cares if he is more comfortable shooting 17 footers and playing with his back to the basket… seriously?  Don’t you guys watch IU play defense?

    Well said.

    problem with his post game is that he doesn’t use it often. Spends more time just trying to get lost behind the defense’s back line than bullying his way into it. It is why he gets so many oops and dunks, but a more aware post defender will be able to curtail those. He needs to start being more assertive and demanding the ball in the post. 

  • Hoosier7Ohio

    My 2012-13 Lineup: 

    Yogi
    Sheehey/Vic
    Watford
    Hanner
    Zeller

    I really think Hanner’s ability to rebound and play tough interior defense make him an instant impact guy.

    I’m starting to think Remy is going to get a lot of PG minutes next year. If he takes a nice step forward to next year (and he stays a Hoosier of course) I could see him starting at the PG spot and Yogi coming off the bench until or if Yogi demonstrates he’s just too good to keep off the court. You could easily see a starting backcourt of Remy/Jordy next year.

    this kid needs some work. i see limited playing time his first year and a half…maybe two. the problem will be coralling his athletic skills and teaching him how the game is played against quality competition. on the other hand, i look for the three signees from indiana to be impact players in their first year. its my guess that these have had some solid coaching along the way.

  • BornHoosierFan

    Hanner will not start for sure. I was there and he was out of gas mid way through fourth quarter after sitting most of 1st half with foul trouble. An amazing athlete with potential like no other but still very raw.

  • Shime

    Totally agree instant impact. If other posters do not see he is an instant impact I think their evaluations might be a little off. We shall wait and see.

  • Kelin Blab

    He will be far from limited playing time with the loss of Pritch and the at or above rim rebounding ability he brings. Will start by his Sophomore year.

  • BornHoosierFan

    He will be a highlight reel kind of guy but best way to describe is a bigger more athletic Oladipo. But less in the tank. He got very tired and took plays off because of this. Not trying to project his impact but he will not start. Hollowell and Bus on the other hand were giving great effort all game long for their teams. Trey Lyles though folks is a bad bad man and will be one of the best to play at IU I believe, he was amazing!

  • BornHoosierFan

    You are correct and sensible with Perea. I see one Fr starting next season and that is Yogi. Bus will be a Defense guy that you can put on other teams best player (he’s better than Oladipo and Sheehey on perimeter defense). Hollowell will be a multiple position guy that wil get good minutes. Perea will be a 10-15 min guy that will frustrate the hell out of you at times and make you have the OHHHHHH!!! Moments at other times. Jurkin is a work in progress. Still though if any of you have chance to watch Lyles take it because you will be amazed!

  • Kennydescombes

    I’m actually thinking that Remy may want to consider taking a red-shirt next year.  Just too much depth at gaurd for IU next year.  I think that if Creek and Roth both come back next year there will just be no minutes for him, so why not take a year and develope further. 

    Just at the gaurd spot he will be competing with Hulls, Creek, Oladipo, Ferrell, Patterson and Roth for minutes.  Personally I would think it would be a good idea for Patterson to redshirt as well. 

  • HoosierKen73

    I agree with you on the starting assignments being probably only Yogi. But if CWat leaves, which by the way, I think would be a mistake.. I would liketo see Hollowell given a shot.. He looks pretty impressive to me. I have a question…on the MickeyD’s All American game broadcast, they indicated Yogi is 6′ 1″… has he grown? All of the recruiting sites info has him at 5′ 11″… So did he grow, or did the broadcasters grow him?…lol.. Would love it if he is 6′ 1″, but with his quickness, not sure it matters that much.
