Top 5 available senior PF's

As the high school season wears on, the amount of quality available senior recruits continues to dwindle. This week we are taking a look at the top five uncommitted players at each position. Today we are looking at the power forward spot, which is probably the thinnest position in terms of available talent.

No. 1 Ivan Rabb

Ivam Rabb is one of the truly elite players left on the board in the 2015 class. A 6-foot-10 power forward, Rabb is mobile, a quality athlete and has the tools to impact the game on both ends of the floor. He’s quick off his feet, protects the rim and gobbles up rebounds. Offensively he has a nice set of hands, impressive touch around the basket, can score with hooks and also mid-range jump shots. Recruiting wise, Rabb has taken official visits to Arizona and Kentucky and since California is local he’s by their campus a bunch. He has said he will visit Kansas and UCLA before he decides.


No. 2 Melvin Frazier

A very good athlete, Melvin Frazier, a 6-foot-7 senior with a lengthy set of arms, is a very intriguing late option at the power forward spot. Frazier is mobile and races end to end. He gets off the ground quickly and is a threat to block shots and reel in rebounds. His motor is one of his strengths. At this point, Frazier has a wide range of college interest.


No. 3 Andre Adams

Unfortunately, Andre Adams has played just three games this season at Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy. Adams injured his left knee and had surgery in December. Regardless, Adams, a 6-foot-9 power forward, should be a hot name when he gets fully healthy, as he’s clearly one of the best available players at his position. The schools showing the most interest right now are Arizona State, Grand Canyon and UTEP. But Clemson, Washington State, UNLV and USC have also inquired about him.


No. 4 Shawntrez Davis

Another nice looking available prospect at the power forward slot is Shawntrez Davis, a native of Georgia. The 6-foot-8 power forward is currently at Sound Doctrine and getting high-major interest. He played on the spring and summer circuit with Game Elite. Davis has good size and will be able to add weight in college. He has a nice set of hands, can finish off plays inside and even make a mid-range jump shot. Among the schools involved in his recruitment are South Carolina, Boston College, Oklahoma State, SMU, Tennessee and Auburn.


No. 5 Alex Olesinski

Alex Olesinski is enjoying a fine senior season at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere. The 6-foot-9 power forward has good mobility and a nice set of tools on the offensive end. He has good hands and touch, and the leftys mid-range jump shot looks good. According to La Lumiere head man Shane Heirman the schools recruiting him are UCLA, UNLV, Michigan State, Gonzaga, Arizona State, Boston College and Rice. Olesinski hasn’t take any college visits.
