West Coast 2005 Rankings: Power Forwards

The 2005 crop of power forwards in the west looks like a pretty strong group. Several players from the state of Washington crack the top ten...

Wallace is a big-bodied banger who is surprisingly nimble and explosive for his size. He can also step out and shoot it fairly well from 15-17 feet. Hill is long and rangy, with a very good stroke to the three-point line. He plays with great energy and covers a lot of ground defensively.Phillips is an explosive athlete who has a good chance of ending up at the three with more skill development. Jefferson is another terrific athlete. His skills still have a ways to go, but he has as much upside as anyone on this list. Brockman is a great competitor who will bang and play with a physical presence inside.
