Forward: Juwan Morgan, Indiana
Before being named to the Karl Malone Award Watch List (nations top power forward) this season, Juwan Morgan led a Indiana Hoosiers team last year that went .500 in the Big Ten and 16-15 overall. Morgan led the team in points per game with 16.5, and rebounds per game with 7.4. Playing in one of the most powerful conferences in the country, Morgan is able to make a name for himself as one of the premier forwards. Pair Juwan Morgan with incoming freshman sensation Romeo Langford and the Indiana Hoosiers could have one of the best duos in the country.
Forward: Tahjai Teague, Ball State
This selection may come as a surprise to many people. You are probably wondering how a guy from a MAC school can join a team with players from schools such as Notre Dame, Purdue, Indiana, or even Butler. Tahjai Teague put together a stellar season last year with the Ball State Cardinals, averaging 12.1 PPG, 7.5 RPG, and 1.2 APG. Teague was in the top-12 in four major categories including rebounds (6th), field goal percentage (8th), blocks (9th), and steals (12th). In 32 game appearances, Teague scored at least 20 points in 5 of them and had 8 double-doubles. He may not have started every game last year, however he is one of the top forwards in the state in terms of statistics. Did I mention Tahjai Teague is the cousin of current Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jeff Teague?
Forward/Center: Trey Moses, Ball State
Two players from a mid-level conference in one list? Of course! The state is HEAVY in guards and lacks the best talent at the forward spot, outside of Juwan Howard. If you don’t follow college hoops in Indiana closely, odds are you have never heard of this guy. Trey Moses nearly averaged a double-double with 11.3 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 2.1 APG while boasting a 57% field goal percentage. Trey Moses and Tahjai Teague are one of the more underrated and overlooked frontcourts in the state.
