One Indiana basketball signee received a great honor for his play during his senior season as he was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in his state.

In a season full of ups-and-downs for the Indiana basketball program, it should have ended with an NCAA Tournament berth and a chance to make a run in March. Unfortunately, we know how it ended up.

Despite that, the members of the 2020 recruiting class are looking to come to Bloomington with high expectations to take the program dancing, officially, for the first time since 2016. One of those recruits is Jordan Geronimo.

Geronimo, who averaged 18.0 points and 9.0 rebounds per game this season for St. Paul’s School, received word on Thursday morning that he was named the New Hampshire Gatorade Player of the Year.

Some other notable winners from the state of New Hampshire are Terrance Mann (’14/Florida State), Isaac Copeland (’13/Nebraska), Melvin Ejim (’10/Iowa State) and Rashad McCants (’02/North Carolina).

Despite an 8-14 record this season, Geronimo was a bright spot every time he stepped on the floor as he was named a 2020 All-New England Class A honoree.

The way Archie Miller uses his wings in multiple different scenarios is not only going to benefit Geronimo with his ability to play multiple positions on the offensive end, but also guard positions 1-4 on the defensive end with his 7-foot+ wingspan.

Jordan Geronimo is a four-star prospect and ranked the No. 96 player in the 2020 class.
