Rankings: Rising Senior Power Forwards

A handful of power forwards have proven themselves to be among the elite at their position on the west coast, including Sean Mallon, David Paris and David Chiotti...

Sean Mallon easily has the best skills among the frontcourt players in this class. If he continues to grow, gets bigger and stronger, he has the potential to be a top 40 national player, and Gonzaga got him sewn up early. David Paris or "Bubba," continues to improve, and has great hands and feet. David Chiotti is a big body with good athleticism and skills. Adam Zahn has the biggest hops among any on this list, it's just a matter of him getting some scoring moves down. If Marcedes Lewis were going to play only basketball, he would probably be higher than #5, but dedicating most of his time to football will probably hold back his basketball development.
