Five-Star Guard Dylan Harper Includes Indiana in Top Five

By Jack Ankony,


Indiana is in the running for Dylan Harper, a top-five player in the class of 2024 and the younger brother of former Rutgers' All-Big Ten player Ron Harper Jr.

Dylan Harper announced his top five schools on Tuesday.

The five-star guard will decide between Auburn, Duke, Rutgers, Kansas and Indiana.

Harper is considered one of the top players in the nation in the class of 2024. He's ranked No. 5 overall and the No. 1 combo guard, according to 247Sports. The ESPN Top 60 rankings slots Harper at No. 2 overall, behind shooting guard Tre Johnson from Dallas, Tex. Harper is ranked No. 2 overall on On3, and Rivals considers him the  No. 10 player in the country.

At 6-foot-4 and 180 pounds, Harper is in his junior season at Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J. He is the younger brother of former Rutgers All-Big Ten player Ron Harper Jr. and the son of NBA champion Ron Harper.

Harper shared his thoughts on Indiana with On3's Joe Tipton.

“Indiana has a great basketball culture and a good style of play that I like. Coach Woodson has a great brand of basketball that relates to the next level. The basketball culture there is truly amazing.”

Indiana does not have any commitments in the class of 2024, and four-star guards Gabe Cupps and Jakai Newton are committed to Indiana in the class of 2023.
