USA TODAY: Top basketball talent in Bloomington

The annual Adidas May Classic AAU tournament is under way and plenty of the best basketball stars of the future are in town showcasing their skills.  Action got under way Friday night with games at Assembly Hall on the Indiana University campus and at the Bloomington Sports Plex.
Games continue throughout the weekend as teams play round robin and tournament formats to crown champions at each level.  Local fans should be interested as several IU targets are in town.  The now-famed Indiana Eltie team comprised of Hoosier commits Ron Patterson, Yogi Farrell, Hanner Parea, and Jeremy Hollowell will be in action at Assembly Hall.  Class of 2013 IU commits Devin Davis and Collin Hartman play with the 16U Eric Gordon All-Stars.  Even the class of 2014 is represented with Trey Lyles and James Blackmon playing as part of the Spiece Indiana Heat squad.
But it's not just IU commits headling the event.  Several other Indiana targets who have also garnered national interest are in town for this event.

Maybe the best player the whole weekend is former Chesterton, IN forward Mitch McGary who ranks as the 15th best player overall according to  McGary plays on the SYF AAU team.  His choice of colleges already included Indiana, Michigan, and Michigan State and has now grown to elite places like Duke, Arizona, Texas, and Kansas.
Sophomore Drake Harris is another player on the watch.  Harris, from Grand Rapids, MI, has an IU offer in hand but will have plenty of options with Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, and Ohio State involved.  Other players to keep an eye on locally include Evansville, IN guard Jaquan Lyle, Indianapolis, IN forward Perry Poindexter, Mishawaka, IN guard Demetrius Jackson and Lake Forest, IL forward Tyler Wideman.
Action continues through Sunday as 229 teams play on in this terriffic event.
