There is a short little lull here in the grassroots basketball scene with not nearly as many tournaments taking place this coming weekend. The following weekend, which is Memorial Day weekend, things will heat back up featuring Nike EYBL Session III in Louisville, Kentucky. Prep Hoops Indiana will have boots on the ground for that event. With a little bit of down time this seemed like the perfect opportunity to highlight some of the top teams that our staff has seen this spring so far. These power rankings will feature the top five 15u programs in the state of Indiana RIGHT NOW. These will be updated every few weeks moving forward.
1. Indiana Elite
Featuring a plethora of talented prospects, Indiana Elite has consistently been the top performing 15u team in the state this spring. They have had success on the Adidas 3SSB Circuit as well facing some of the top teams in the country.(Greenfield Central H.S. 2025) is a Top 5 player in the class according to Prep Hoops Indiana headlining their talented group. JonAnthony Hall (Fishers H.S. 2025) has been a breakout performer this spring showcasing his elite athleticism. He is also a standout football and track prospect. Other top prospects including (Crispus Attucks H.S. 2025), Chris Hurt (Crispus Attucks H.S. 2025), and Luke Ertel (Mount Vernon Fortville H.S. 2026).
2. Indy Heat
Playing on the Nike EYBL Circuit, Indy Heat’s 15u group has shown they are as talented as anyone. There have been some ups and downs, but on paper they still have one of the best teams in the state. Prospects like(South Bend St. Joseph H.S. 2025), (Valparaiso H.S. 2025), (Warren Central H.S. 2025), and (Cathedral H.S. 2025) are all ranked in the Top 12 in the Prep Hoops Indiana prospect rankings. One player that has really stood out through the spring that deserves more attention is 6’5″ versatile forward (Manchester H.S. 2025).
3. Indiana Elite Defenders
You might not know much about this team, but you should get familiar. They jumped up the power rankings thanks to a strong showing at the Adidas May Classic including a 90-74 win against Team Teague that really turned some heads.(Switzerland County H.S. 2025) is a Top 15 prospects, (Paoli H.S. 2025) is in the Top 25, and (Christian Academy 2025) is a Top 40 guy. They are a great group of southern Indiana kids that are fun to watch and are making a name for themselves on a statewide level.
4. Team Teague
A couple of weeks ago Team Teague would have likely been #2 on this list. However, after losing to the Defenders at the Adidas May Classic it knocked them down a few spots.(Ben Davis H.S. 2025) and (Evansville Harrison H.S. 2025) are both Top 20 prospects according to Prep Hoops Indiana and have been excellent all spring long. Other prospects like (Richmond H.S. 2025) and (Jeffersonville H.S. 2025) have been very good for them as well primarily playing on the Prep Hoops Circuit.
5. D1 Indiana
Moving to 14-2 on the spring with a Pool A win at Havoc in the Heartland over the weekend, D1 Indiana is an under-the-radar 15u team. Led by(New Palestine H.S. 2025) has consistently been their top scorer which was true once again as the skilled guard poured in 21 points in a blowout victory over EG10. T.J. Davidson (Noblesville H.S. 2025) had a good weekend for D1 Indiana as well.
