The Indiana basketball program has three signees in 2020 and another one is set to make school history in his next time out.

There has always been a lot of talk surrounding the Indiana basketball program and its ability or inability to keep the in-state talent coming to Bloomington, but with the 2020 class, there is no doubting it.

Archie Miller vowed to win almost every in-state recruiting battle he was involved with when he took over the Indiana program, and he has backed that up almost every year. In the 2020 class, Anthony Leal and Trey Galloway have emerged as not only two of the best players in the state, but two underrated players amongst the entire 2020 class.

For Anthony Leal, his senior season continues to be terrific and the next time he steps on the court, he will set another record in his high school career.

On Saturday, Leal needed just 25 points to tie the Bloomington South all-time scoring record and that is exactly what he did. Putting up 25 points, Leal tied to South record of 1,553 career points.

On the season, Anthony Leal is averaging 18.6 points per game en route to leading Bloomington South to a 21-0 record.

The 6-foot-5 guard’s play, in addition to an undefeated season thus far, has him in great position to win Indiana’s Mr. Basketball as the state’s top player.

With expectations to win the State Championship, Leal will go down in Bloomington South, and Indiana high school history, as one of the best high school players in recent years.
