Final 2004 West Coast Rankings: Small Forwards

The position of small forward is not a particularly deep one in 2004, but it's pretty strong at the top with guys like Marvin Williams, Nick Young and David Pendergraft...

The small forward spot is usually a pretty deep position, but that's not the case this year. There are only a few high major prospects in this year's class. Williams is easily the top prospect in this group. An explosive athlete, his skills have improved dramatically in the last year. He doesn't figure to spend much time in college. Young is one of the best athletes in the west and very skilled. He's underrrated nationally and has the upside to be a star at the college level. Pendergraft has a great feel for the game and excellent skills.He should fit right in at Gonzaga and figures to be a key contributor right away. Roberson is new to the West Coast, having moved to Compton from Louisiana. He had a good season this past year at Dominugez. He's a very good athlete and showed fairly good skills. Harmeling wasn't seen by many people last summer,but he's a good athlete with the ability to play inside and on the perimeter.
