West Coast Class of 2006: Small Forwards

Coaches looking for small forwards in 2006 should have plenty to choose from, as there appears to be significant depth in the West Coast class...

The small forward spot appears to be a very deep position in the West Coast class of 2006. There are numerous potential high major prospects in our current top 15 list. Our current top three small forward prospects are Phil Nelson, Chase Budinger and Blake Wallace. The rest of the list is in no particular order.

Keep in mind that we've seen some of these players only briefly. It's quite probable that there will be major adjustments to the list at
the end of July.
