Class of 2024 wing VJ Edgecombe will also be in Las Vegas at the Synergy Sportsradar Showdown.

There’s just one name to know in Omaha and it’s class of 2024 five-star forward Asa Newell.

Newell, a long-time recruiting target for the Hoosier staff, is playing in the NXTPRO 16 Elite 8 at the Iowa West Fieldhouse.

Power 24 in Powder Springs, Georgia

The primary names to know that will be playing in the Atlanta area are underclassmen.

Rising juniors Caleb Wilson, Bryson Tiller, Landon Vanderwarker and EJ Walker are all expected to play in the Power 24.
