There was some tremendous basketball played outside of Indianapolis this past weekend, and the Hoosier state repped really well in the 14U division for Prep Hoops Next’s stop at the Heartland Kickoff, here’s a look at three teams of 2025 standouts and some honorable mentions who narrowly missed the top 15.
2025 1st Team
De’queris Mayfield, 5-11, G, C.M.B. Runnin Rebels (pictured above)
Explosive speed off the bounce and power to the basket were among the traits that made Mayfield one of the weekend’s top performers, when he turned things up in the open floor there wasn’t an opposing guard that could check him, good frame made him tough crashing the glass from the backcourt as well, even if he doesn’t get much taller is a young guard prospect that is just too skilled to be ignored by D1 programs.
Jalen Haralson, 6-4, G, Team Teague Kim
On paper and at glance among the 2 or 3 most tantalizing talents on and at 6-4 already, brings with him a polished game as a combo guard, easily handled the point both against pressure and creating off the bounce but was also deadly from range with a sweet stroke, has all the tools to build a HS-career that will attract big-time programs.
EJ Breland, 5-10, G, Grind Family Chicago
Silky smooth point man who did slide over and play off the ball as well, has the full array of offensive weapons from multiple levels, showed off 3-point accuracy, nice control off the break near the mid-range with J’s and floaters, and got to the rim almost at will, among best on-ball defenders I saw as well.
Mark Zackery, 5-11, G, Team Teague Kim
Epitome of the modern lead guard prospect, terrific athletic ability with and without the ball, poised and smart, tremendous vision and instincts, explosive first step off the dribble getting at the basket, elite on-ball defense.
Quincy Twymon, 6-3, F, D Rice Elite
With a deep stable of bigs on hand for D Rice it was Twymon’s all-around excellence which showed out, super physical at point of attack, monster rebounder and defender near the cup, battles so hard and gets plenty of tight finishes through contact, can definitely step out and knock down the open J.
2025 2nd Team
Cayden Loescher, 6-2, G, Team Teague Kim
Parker Lepla, 6-4, F, D Rice Elite
Kendal Cutler, 6-2, F, Grind Family Chicago
Trayvon Taylor, 6-1, F, EZ Work Elite
Aldonavin Huddleston, 6-1, F, C.M.B. Runnin Rebels
2025 3rd Team
Jack McCaffery, 6-4, F, Iowa Barnstormers
Caden Piening, 6-2, F, All H.E.A.R.T Basketball
Jackson Tielker, 6-0, G, D1 Indiana
Lonte Ward Jr, 5-7, G, Progeny
Dezmon Briscoe, 6-5, F, Grand Park Premier
