          Seen Craig many times, both in HS & JC. This kid grew up hard knocks. Burst on the seen as a senior in HS...was best player on a very good Terre Haute South HS team.... but was overshadowed by classmate & ISUb signee. Porter wasn't really known until his SR year (team had PG who went to IUPUI in grade above him). Coached by former Purdue player Maynard Lewis in HS. Athletic, skilled, looked great at times for VU. If he continues making the right decisions, kid has a bright future.

                  An upgrade in what facet? Attitude? Talent? Athleticism?

                            Here's Taylor's write up on Craig Porter:

                            Craig Porter (Vincennes junior-to-be)

                            Vitals: 6-foot-1, 175-pound junior-to-be point guard from Terre Haute, Ind.

                            2019-20 season: Averaged 14.8 points, 7.7 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.9 blocks with 26 starts for Vincennes, which finished 28-5, qualified for the NJCAA national tournament and was ranked No. 9 in the final NJCAA poll. Shot 48.8% from the field, 30.5% on three-pointers and 66.7% on free throws.

                            Current recruiting: Interest from Kansas, West Virginia, Oregon, Texas Tech, Indiana, Wichita State, Connecticut, Mississippi and Indiana State, per WTHI-TV.

                            Outlook: Primary playmaker for a traditional junior-college power at Vincennes, which was ranked in the top 10 for much of the season. Could be a ready-made starter at point guard for a top program. He can score well, pass well, rebound well and defend well. If Porter has a major flaw to his game, the junior-college level didn’t expose it. He can run the show out of the pick and roll or as a distributor in a motion offense. He has a pretty tight handle on the ball and excellent quickness, which paired with an array of spin moves makes Porter a very difficult guard for a single defender. He’s crafty and plays with high basketball intelligence and has some hops, too. On the defensive end, Porter has a truly impeccable sense of timing for swatting shots. He finished top 15 in the country last season and top 20 this season, averaging 1.9 blocks per game from the point guard position. Throw in nearly two steals per game and Porter figures to be a two-way star right away for whichever program he picks. He’s rated the country’s No. 17 junior-college prospect by JucoRecruiting.com.
