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 Side 2019 coached by George McGinsie.
|3||Jordan Brickley||5’9||PG||2019||Beech Grove|
|15||Garrett Metz||6’2||SG||2019||North Decatur|
|10||Jacob Denney||6’1||PG||2019||Indianapolis Roncalli|
|20||Griffin Wade||6’1||SG||2019||Beech Grove|
|24||Blaine Wentzell||5’10||PG||2019||Franklin Community|
|43||Peyton Gray||6’8||C||2019||Eastern Hancock|
|13||Larry Dean Jr.||6’1||SG||2019||Mississinewa|
|0||Spencer Reist||6’1||SG||2019||Brebeuf Jesuit|
Roster Breakdown: With this roster you have a lot of unknowns. A lot of these guys didn’t see many minutes last year but that was due to their high school teams being loaded. Guys like Peyton Gray, Haven Montefalco, and Jordan Brickley have potential, they just need to show it in the AAU season. This is a heavy guard dominant team and they will give a lot of run to Gray and Isaac Farah inside since they probably will run a lot of four guard lineups out there.
Guy You Have To Watch: Spencer Reist (Brebeuf Jesuit)
Reist got a lot of time on the floor for Brebeuf this year and averaged double-digit points. Needs to use this summer to become a little more consistent with his scoring. He can score the ball, especially from deep, but needs to be able to do that on a game to game basis. Reist is able to score at all three levels and has an edge to his game not many others have.
Best Bet To End Up Breaking Out: Peyton Gray (Eastern Hancock)
Gray is a relatively unknown player coming from Eastern Hancock but he a legit 6’8 post player who can score the ball. He’s a guy who can step out beyond the three-point line and knock shots down as well as hit the boards hard. He has the ability to get offensive rebounds at a very high clip and put them back up. Should have a big season going into his senior year.
Who Should Be Watching: D3
A lot of these kids haven’t gotten much run with their high school teams and are unknown. This summer will change that and there is a lot of D3 talent on this roster. A few kids need a big summer to be mentioned in the NAIA ranks but there is plenty of D3 players. Should be a team that D3’s watch with a lot of interest this summer.
