With Armaan Franklin now in Bloomington, a new crop of rising stars is emerging at Indianapolis’ Cathedral High School.
Leading the way is a sophomore point guard who is also on a high major trajectory.
Through 12 games, Tayshawn Comer is averaging 17.8 points, 4.7 assists, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.4 steals per game for Cathedral.
The 6-foot-1 Comer is making 46 percent of his shots from the field including 41 percent from three-point range. Comer also converts at a 76 percent clip from the foul line.
Comer’s head coach sees big strides from an impressive freshman season.
“Tayshawn has really improved his three point shooting from a year ago to 40% this season,” Cathedral head coach Jason Delaney told The Daily Hoosier.
Although Comer has necessarily stepped up his scoring production with Franklin now at IU, he can fill either role as a modern point guard — scorer or facilitator.
“He’s making guys around him better by putting them in scoring position — but he can still take over a game,” Delaney said.
Teammates with Franklin for one year at Cathedral, Comer has a quick first step, finishes through contact, is a strong perimeter shooter, and he does a nice job of finding his teammates.
Comer recently reported a scholarship offer from Ball State and he is hearing from the top area high major programs.
With the sophomore Comer leading the team in scoring, Cathedral is 10-2 on the season and currently sits just outside of the state’s top ten. His top performances this season have included a 31 point outburst against Howe, and a 27 point night at Avon.
Comer is No. 12 below, wearing navy blue in the first video, and white in the second.
