Rankings: Junior Small Forwards

The junior small forward class has very good depth, with several potential high major players not even cracking the top ten. Denver East's Antonio Porch is the new #1 ranked small forward in the west....

The small forward position may not be quite as strong at the top as it has been in past years, but it is a very deep position in the junior class. Several players who are not yet in the top ten have a chance at becoming high major players. Antonio Porch is a long, active and skilled wing who has improved a great deal since the summer. Wendell White makes his first appearance among the small forwards after being previously listed among the shooting guards. White is a big, physical wing who can shoot it with three-point range. Devon Evertsen was impressive in limited viewings last summer, showing nice athleticism and a pretty good shot. Zach Ryan was a revelation at the Las Vegas Christmas tournament, wowing scouts and coaches with big hops, a live body and nice shooting touch. Justin Hawkins is very skilled and a good shooter with deep range.
