The annual Prep Hoops Indiana Top 250 Expo has continued to grow so much over the last few years that we had to offer two sessions this fall. We hosted the first of those two sessions on Sunday, September 24th at the Noblesville Boys & Girls Club. If you would like to sign up for Session 2 on October 14th at Fishers High School you can do so now!
Our first session of the Indiana Top 250 Expo featured 150+ prospects from around the state looking to gain some exposure going into the upcoming high school season. As always, we had our team of scouts in the gym to provide unparalleled coverage through the event. Furthermore, the content will keep coming over the next couple of weeks as we breakdown the event and provide written evaluations for every prospect in attendance. However, to begin, let’s highlight some of the top individual performers from Session 1 of the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 250 Expo.
There will be plenty of talk in the coming months about this prospect that moved into Southport for his sophomore season. Kalala is a 6’7″ forward/center that was the most impressive player at the event in terms of long-term potential. The left-handed big man has an excellent motor, is very bouncy around the rim at both ends of the floor, and can rebound well outside of his area. Look for him to make a major impact immediately this high school season.
Klopfenstein did what he does best on Sunday evening at the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 250 Expo. The 6’5″ shooter was lights out from beyond the arc knocking in catch-and-shoot three after catch-and-shoot three. In the game that I watched, in the first half alone, he made one from each corner and then followed those two up with a transition three from the trail spot. His combination of size and shooting ability makes him a very intriguing prospect.
Lindeman is a highly skilled guard with excellent size on the perimeter. The 6’5″ Bloomington North product is very fluid athletically showcasing the ability to handle the ball in traffic, play with pace on the perimeter, and score consistently both from mid-range and beyond the arc. He is a guy that should continue to show up on college programs recruiting lists going into his junior season. There is a lot to like about his combination of size and skill and it was on fully display Sunday evening at the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 250 Expo. Lindeman is poised to have a great winter with the Cougars.
Center Grove graduated a pair of talented guards last season which will open the door for this 5’10” point guard to take on a larger role as a senior. Meador looked ready to do so throughout the summer with Indiana Elite Green and then turned in a very strong performance on Sunday at the Top 250 Expo. He is a skilled playmaker that consistently scored off of the dribble and created open shots for his teammates as well. Competes hard.
Milan is a 6’8″ center that dominated around the basket throughout the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 250 Expo. After playing his first two seasons at Scecina, the big man will suit up for the defending 33-0 state champion Ben Davis Giants as a junior. The left-handed post scored with his back to the basket consistently with several two handed dunks while also displaying soft hands on the roll or from the dunker’s spot. Should be a highly productive two-way presence inside.
A talented shooting guard with good size on the perimeter, Packer absolutely lit it up from deep throughout Sunday’s event. The 6’3″ shooter made 15 three-pointers in his three games and scored over 20 points in each contest. After spending last season helping lead a dominant Penn High School freshman team, Packer will suit up for South Bend Riley as a sophomore. Look for his shooting ability to get him on the floor and help takeover a scoring role right away.
