On the strength of its 4-0 start, Center Grove is beginning to make some noise in various high school football national rankings.
The Trojans, owning wins over Warren Central, Carmel and Ben Davis, are ranked No. 15 nationally in the MaxPreps Freeman Computer rankings.
Center Grove also shows up at No. 18 in the High School Football America top 25 and No. 99 in the HSFB100.
Preps Nation does not have an Indiana team in its top 25 but has Cathedral (3-1) at No. 9 in Midwest Region and Center Grove at No. 11.
Center Grove plays North Central (0-4) at 6 p.m. Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
A few basketball notes:
• After an official visit to Nevada over the weekend, Cathedral senior Eron Gordon has had coaches from Dayton and Marquette in to see him this week.
• Park Tudor junior Jaren Jackson Jr. had coaches from Illinois, Georgetown and Xavier in to see him on Tuesday.
*Former Lawrence North standout Michael Chandler will apparently spend his senior year playing at an NAIA program.
ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported Tuesday that the 6-10 Chandler is attending Waldorf College, an NAIA school. Chandler, ranked as a top-50 prospect in high school, was at different times committed to Louisville, Central Florida and Xavier. He instead ended up at Northwest Florida State junior college and then Oregon as a junior last season. Chandler played in just 19 games, averaging 2.2 points and 1.4 rebounds.
