Class of 2021 point guard Khristian Lander is playing up a year for spring and summer AAU basketball.
He looks right at home playing with the big boys.
The Evansville native led his Indiana Elite team in scoring with 18 points in the championship game of the Bill Hensley Memorial Run-N-Slam in Fort Wayne this past weekend.
Lander’s high level of play to this point has put him firmly on the national radar.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Lander is ranked as the No. 18 player in the class of 2021 overall, and he is the No. 1 point guard in the country and the No. 1 player in the state of Indiana according to that same service.
The 6-foot-3 Lander averaged 22 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.2 steals per game as a sophomore at F.J. Reitz High School. He shot 37% from the three-point range and 79% from the foul line.
Lander has a long and growing list of offers that includes Indiana, Purdue, Kansas, Illinois and Ohio State.
In this video from this past weekend you can see Lander’s best attributes on display which include elite quickness and athleticism, great ball handling skills, and an ability to score from all levels. Lander also has the length and motor to defend at a high level on the perimeter.
