Indiana did not have a lot of teams I was able to see at the Grassroots Showcase last weekend, but I did get the chance to see two quality programs in Men of the Family and 94 Feet Elite. While this piece is shorter due to the lack of teams to watch, the talent is still real. Take a look below at the top players from Indiana last weekend.

Tasean Gates (2024) 94 Feet Elite 6-1 PF

Gates was listed as a PF in the media guide, but played more like a PG/2G in action against Mid Ohio Pumas-Sliemers. Whether you see him as a guard or PF, no doubt he’s a slashing player. Advances and distributes the basketball to his many athletic teammates. Utilized drive and kick to his teammates. Pesky defender on the ball.

Jaelyn Johnson (2024) 94 Feet Elite  6-4 PF

Johnson definitely stands out with his length which is impressive for a 15U player. Uses the length around the rim and had a nice touch around the rim. Has some areas to improve mainly in his toughness and defensive mechanics, but both are easily fixable as he grows out his frame and continues to improve footwork.
