INDIANAPOLIS — Concord’s Franko House, Memorial’s Markese McGuire, Marian’s Demetrius Jackson and Penn’s Austin Torres are among individuals named to Hoosier Basketball Magazine’s Top 100 senior boys basketball players for 2013.

The compilation, according to HBM, is the result of game observation as well as discussion with coaches, media and college recruiters throughout the state.

The list will be pared to 60 players after this coming weekend’s IHSAA State Finals, and those players will be invited to HBM’s 26th annual Top 60 Workout, slated for Sunday, April 7, at Marian University.

That workout is one of the variables used to determine the Indiana All-Stars.

House is bound for Ball State, McGuire for Illinois-Chicago, and Jackson — a McDonald’s All-American and Mr. Basketball contender — and Torres both for Notre Dame.

Other Top 100 selections from teams in area conferences include Warsaw’s Jared Bloom, South Bend Riley’s Brock Cosey, Fremont’s Tyler Jenkins, South Bend Clay’s Taron Miller, Mishawaka’s Chris Mitchell, Bremen’s Ethan Pike and Triton’s Clay Yeo.
