With the end of the high school season fast approaching, we began our AAU previews at the start of March and now we have begun the look at rosters. Rosters and teams are starting to take shape and we are getting more and more everyday. This one, is a look at Indiana Elite Force 2019 coached by Shane Thomson.
|13||Cory Richards||6’3||PG||2019||Franklin Community|
|15||Peyton Meadors||6’4||SG||2019||Mt. Vernon (Fortville)|
|23||Reece Thomson||6′||PG||2019||Franklin Community|
|31||Matt Roming||6’7||PF||2019||Columbus East|
|33||Gavin Hess||6’4||SF||2019||Beech Grove|
|41||Nolan Smith||6’5||C||2019||Franklin Community|
Roster Breakdown: There are a lot of big posts on this team and it’ll be a team that will look to wear you down. Orbaugh, Hinds, and Roming are all very good rebounders and they should standout on this team. It’ll be nice to see what some of these lesser known players can do and with a team makeup like this, they will be able to play in many different ways.
Guy You Have To Watch: Peyton Meadors (Mt. Vernon-Fortville)
Meadors is looking for a breakout summer. He was kind of in the shadows at Mount Vernon this year but he is really skilled. His jumper is good and he has the handles to be able to fit in. Long, lanky and he plays tough getting the 50-50 balls and getting to the line. Could be a really sneaky good summer for him.
Best Bet To End Up Breaking Out: Hogan Orbaugh (Zionsville)
Orbaugh is getting used to his body and has shown some glimpses of really solid low post touch. This summer he should really be able to get a lot of looks in the low post. He is a good rebounder and knows where he needs to be on offense. His stock should rise a ton this summer if he is able to score and rebound effectively.
Who Should Be Watching: D3/NAIA
While none of these players are D2 level players just yet, it wouldn’t surprise me if that was the case by the end of the summer. They are all very solid and with a mix of guys with different playing styles should attract a ton of D3 coaches into the gym. A solid lineup with every player fitting onto a future college roster.
