Jason Delaney - Cathedral Coach:  Armaan Franklin’s stat line from the Indianapolis City Championship win: 29 points (9-11 shooting 6-8 from 3), 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, guarded their leading scorer averaging over 17PPG & held him to 5 points. Armaan does it all on both end

Man, just having a strong year. He seems confident. I hope it carries over to Bloomington.

From an Indy Star article discussing Indiana all-stars.

Armaan Franklin, Cathedral: The 6-5 Franklin, an Indiana recruit, is as versatile an offensive threat as anyone on this list. Franklin is averaging 22.9 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 2.1 assists per game. He is shooting 52 percent from the field and 39 percent from the 3-point line for the 4A seventh-ranked Irish (14-4). Franklin was a core Junior All-Star last season, averaging 23.0 points and 7.8 rebounds.

I got a buddy that lives in Noblesville.  He knows his basketball, goes to a lot of games in the Indy area.  He says that Franklin is the best player he has ever seen at the HS level.  And that tells me something.  Same guy, years ago, told me to keep an eye on Matt Howard.

He's really good, but this is a reach.   Did your buddy see Eric Gordon in high school?  Gary Harris?  Trey Lyles?   Zac Irvin?  Trevon Blueitt? (the best comparison, I think)  Kyle Guy?   Is he old enough to have seen Greg Oden or Cody Zeller?

Franklin's good, but best he's ever seen?   Who has he seen?  Serious question.

I will ask him....but his son was an Indiana All-Star.

I wasn't sure so I called.  My buddy's son was on the all-star team with Oden and Conley.

He has seen all the guys you mentioned and maintains that Franklin is the best HS player he has ever seen with Gordon and Yogi not far behind.  Yes, it is opinion.  But one I don't take lightly.  That's all I got.

I've seen Franklin many times.  He's not as good as Gordon.   Nor as good as Oden or several others.   Eric Gordon was a top 5 kid in the country. Oden was #1.    Tell your buddy he's got some 'splainin' to do.

Have only seen Franklin twice on streamed games. Would love to see him live. The kid looks like he’s really on the come and Archie may have stolen him. Thrilled to have him. Saying that, and you’re just relaying a 3rd party opinion, so no disrespect toward you at all, if the man thinks Franklin is remotely comparable to Oden or Gordon, he doesn’t know what he’s looking at.

Wow ranking services are way off. They have him at 150.

All I can say is, don't shoot the postman!

Why would we shoot USPS?  He's been an amazing poster for as long as I can remember.  You on the other hand...

We need Franklin to play his role in this program.  I liked what I saw in Anderson fighting for loose balls the other night.  It'd be awesome to have a team full of players fighting for possessions like that.
