One Indiana basketball target continues to make a name for himself and rise up in the rankings, becoming one of the top midwestern players in the 2021 class.

The Indiana basketball program had a terrific recruiting stretch with three commitments in the summer, but having been a bit cold on the recruiting trail as of late Archie Miller is hoping to change that soon.

Four-star forward Logan Duncomb is one of the top players in the class of 2021 out of the state of Ohio, and is a player that has caught the eyes of the Indiana coaching staff. Indiana was on sight to watch Duncomb last week and have started to ramp up its recruiting efforts for the 6-foot-9 big man.

With Archie Miller noting how valuable it is to have an excess of big men at his disposal come conference play, he is starting to latch onto Duncomb for the 2021 class as Indiana will be losing Joey Brunk, De’Ron Davis, Justin Smith and the possibility of Trayce Jackson-Davis leaving after his sophomore season.

The Cincinnati native is currently ranked No. 99 in the 247Sports class of 2021 rankings, and the No. 4 prospect out of Ohio, but his play is causing a lot of high-major programs to take notice, and his stock continues to rise.

247Sports recruiting analyst Brian Snow came out with his 10 midwest products that have improved their stock throughout winter. Duncomb was included on the list and Snow had high praise for the forward about his work ethic and attributes.

"The big man from the Cincinnati area has had a very good season, and continues to be someone who high-major coaches are all in on. Duncomb isn’t the most athletic, but he has improved his ability to run the floor, has gotten noticeably stronger, and continues to improve on his skills. While he is a capable outside shooter, he is at his best around the rim. Also, his extreme length makes up for his lack of total athleticism, and allows him to rebound in and out of his area while also protect the rim. He will never be a great athlete, so improving his physique will always be a focus, and so far Duncomb has done a good job of that."

Duncomb is averaging 13.4 points on 66.4 percent shooting from the field, 8.9 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game for Archbishop Moeller High School.
