The Indiana Top 250 Expo was this past weekend and this was a great opportunity for our prospects to preform at our premier event in front of college coaches at all levels. Here, we are going to take look at and evaluate the players that made up teams 9 and 10.
#37 Braeden Collins Braeden Collins 6'1" Columbus East | 2023 IN (Columbus East H.S. 2023): Good three-point shooter. Collins moves well without the ball and read screens well to get open on the perimeter. Good footwork coming into his shot. 6’1" guard.
#39 Judah Simfukwe Judah Simfukwe 6'1" | PG Warsaw | 2022 State IN (Warsaw H.S. 2022): A 6’1" guard that can play on or off the ball, Simfukwe impressed with his ability to get into the paint and finish around size at the rim. A good athlete with some bounce inside. Smooth pull-up jumper from the mid-range as well. Definitely one for small colleges to pay attention to during his senior season.
#40 Jayden Furney Jayden Furney 6'1" | SG Delta | 2024 IN (Delta H.S. 2024): Furney is a solid three-point shooter that knocked a couple in on Saturday from deep. The 6’1" guard handled the ball well too showing the ability to run the point as well as the two-guard spot.
#102 Braeden Collins Braeden Collins 6'1" Columbus East | 2023 IN (Columbus East H.S. 2023): Good three-point shooter. Collins moves well without the ball and read screens well to get open on the perimeter.

The 6’1" guard handled the ball well too showing the ability to run the point as well as the two-guard spot. #102 Cameron Young Cameron Young 6'2" | SF Plainfield | 2023 IN (Plainfield H.S. 2023): Young has some good size on the wing with a 6’2" athletic build. Was good in transition all day long with a couple of nice coast-to-coast finishes. Nice defensive potential. #105 Jake Helton Jake Helton 6'2" Charlestown | 2023 IN (Charlestown H.S. 2023): 6’2" guard that handles the ball well and can run the point or function as a secondary ball-handler in the half court. Got to the basket off of the dribble and made the right play when he had the ball. Showed a high basketball IQ. #124 Nolan Cumberland Nolan Cumberland 6'2" | SG Tippecanoe Valley | 2023 State IN (Tippecanoe Valley H.S. 2023): Cumberland put together a very impressive Indiana Top 250 showcase. The 6’3" athletic wing can score it in a variety of ways from all three levels. Rebounds well for a guard, can push the pace in transition, and is excellent with the ball in his hands in the half court. Really skilled player. Smooth driver that can finish with either hand. #138 Matthew Ross Matthew Ross 6'4" | SF Peru | 2022 State IN (Peru H.S. 2022): Stretch-4 type of offensive player with a 6’4" frame. Made a couple of threes to go along with some tough finishes inside. Rim runs hard in transition but also has the skill to the be the trail guy. An under-the-radar 2022 prospect that I didn’t know much about before Saturday’s showcase. #171 Dorian Hill Dorian Hill 5'8" Seton Catholic | 2022 IN (Seton Catholic H.S. 2022): Impressive little 5’8" point guard that is super quick with the ball and possesses a good handle. Hill pushes it hard in transition, can get by his man off the bounce in the half court, and makes the right play while attacking the basket. Don’t let the size fool you, this is a solid point guard that gets things done. #178 Brandon Trilli Brandon Trilli 6'5" | SF Munster | 2023 State IN (Munster H.S. 2023): After putting together a great summer, Trilli continued to impress with a strong. Looks to have grown a bit to 6’5" and still has that excellent skill level around the basket. Finishes with both hands, handles the ball well, and keeps getting better from the perimeter too. Knocked in a pick-and-pop three at one point on Saturday. Should have a huge junior season statistically at Munster. Team 20 #19 Paul Leasure Paul Leasure 6'0" Rochester | 2023 IN (Rochester H.S. 2023): 6’0" guard that made some perimeter shots throughout the day on Saturday for his team. The Rochester native showed off some nice court vision while leading the fast break in transition as well. #28 Grant Clark Grant Clark 6'0" Portage Hs Indiana | 2022 IN (Portage H.S. 2022): Clark is a 6’0" guard from Portage that will look to shoot it from beyond the arc. He is a left-hander with a nice shooting stroke that should take on a larger scoring role here in his senior season. #60 K.J. Windham K.J. Windham 6'1" | PG Ben Davis | 2024 State IN (Ben Davis H.S. 2024): One of the most talented players at the Indiana Top 250, Windham is a super skilled left-handed guard that can score it anyway you want. The 6’2" playmaker was excellent from beyond the arc while also routinely breaking his man down off the dribble. Has a tight handle with a quick burst to get into the paint. High level talent that will have college coaches fighting over his services. #77 Kamari Slaughter Kamari Slaughter 6'2" | SG Portage | 2023 State IN (Portage H.S. 2023): Slaughter has great size and strength on the wing in his 6’4" frame. He made some excellent plays off of the dribble showing the ability to make tough shots from the perimeter off of the bounce. Creates his own shot very well. Super athletic and nearly impossible to stop with a head of steam in transition. Really impressive performance from this 2023 prospect on Saturday. #78 Jaxon Pardon Jaxon Pardon 6'3" | SG Fort Wayne Carroll | 2024 State IN (Fort Wayne Carroll H.S. 2024): Pardon really jumped out as a top 2024 prospect with his performance at the showcase on Saturday. A smooth, athletic 6’4" guard, Pardon showed a silky-smooth left-handed stroke from beyond the arc. Really filled it up from the perimeter. Should have a breakout season at Carroll. #90 Cam Reich Cam Reich 6'0" | PG Brownsburg | 2024 IN (Brownsburg H.S. 2024): 6’0" physical driver with an aggressive streak on the offensive end. Reich knocked in two early triples in one game that I watched him play and then started attacking the basket off of the dribble from that point on. Good offensive player. #115 Eli LaGrange Eli LaGrange 6'4" | SG Leo | 2024 IN (Leo H.S. 2024): LaGrange is a hard-nosed 6’3" wing that plays hard at all times and contributes to winning in a variety of ways. Good size, nice perimeter shooting stroke, and rebounds well for a guard. #117 Nas McNeal Nas McNeal 6'3" Park Heritage | 2023 IN (Park Heritage H.S. 2023): An impressive athlete with long arms that possesses the ability to really push the ball in transition when he gets it. 6’3" wing that was constantly in the passing lanes on the defensive end of the floor creating turnovers. #154 Jordan Vaughns Jordan Vaughns 6'5" Center Grove | 2022 IN (Center Grove H.S. 2022): Under-the-radar Class of 2022 prospect that burst onto the scene at the Indiana Top 250. 6’5" forward that was effective in the pick-and-roll as a finisher. Strong and athletic. Not someone that had much buzz before this event but college coaches should know about now. #168 Cole Duncan Cole Duncan 6'7" | C Cowan | 2024 IN (Cowan H.S. 2024): 6’7" big man that crashes the glass hard on both ends of the floor. Protects the rim on the defensive end with his length. As his skill set continues to develop this will be a prospect for coaches to keep an eye on. Should still have another inch or two to grow. Held his own down low on Saturday.
