FISHERS, IN– As we wrap up from Fishers, we take a look at another list of hustlers that in my eyes, put their names out there with not how many points they scored, but with how they ran the floor throughout the weekend at the Prep Hoops Next Heartland Kickoff.
These five names looked to be the most gritty, tough, and fearless prospects I got to watch this weekend at Fishers High School.
Tytus Lehman | Bloomfield, IN | Team Teague 2026 Shawn
Lehman showed off to be one of the more physical prospects I watched in the 2026 division. What I loved most about his game is he could fill it up on both sides of the court. Lehman looks to be a player that I could see blossom to become a solid high school player in the coming years with the grit he plays with at a young age.
Jordan Duncan | Cincinnati, OH | All H.E.A.R.T. Basketball Club 2026
Duncan was one I watched on Saturday that had the hustle to go to bucket despite not being the biggest guy on the floor. In his game against Team Teague 2026 Shawn, Duncan used his hustle and muscle, as he buzzed by a defender, and when he saw the big post play of All H.E.A.R.T 2026 he let one float over the heads of the long length of their 6’1 center for solid get it yourself bucket which put him on our All-Hustle list for the Class of 2026.
Jaylan Mitchell | Robinson, IL | Team Teague 2026 Jordan | Class of 2027
Mitchell was playing up and for good reason as his 6’4 size sealed nicely in the game, I witnessed. I like Mitchell’s firepower when the ball gets to him in the paint as his movement with the basketball is quick but very controlled for someone his age. I have a gut feeling this kid (if not already) will be dunking soon in games as he showed a strong vertical on an alley-oop layup I witnessed over the weekend.
Zack Jordan | Bowling Green, KY | Vette City Thoroughbreds 2026
Jordan was a post player I thought worked real hard this weekend. His 6’2 frame was fearless in making sure it was difficult for any player to get extremely low in the post, which gave Vette City Thoroughbreds a shot in the championship bracket. I like how he closed out up the lane in their win over Team Manimal 2026 on early Sunday morning. A program under the radar that had a nice showing this weekend out of Bowling Green.
Cole Edelen | Louisville, KY | Team Manimal 2026
Edelen showed our scouts how versatile he was on both sides of the ball this weekend. Edelen is a prospect that shows poise when he sees something he likes whether that’s running past a quick guard with his ability to accelerate or climbing into the defensive lines and making a pickpocket and scoring off of it. Edelen has some long arms for a 5’11 combo prospect coming out of Louisville.
These few prospects also caught the eyes of our scouts for their hustle this weekend.
Anthony Holmes | Gary, IN | Indy Premiere 219
Holmes 6’3 frame was “oozing,” said our scouts on-site as this kid should have a promising future.
