Rankings: 2003 Small Forwards

It's probably the most deeply talented position in the class of 2003 on the west coast, with the likes of high majors like Dominic McGuire, Trevor Ariza, Wendell White, Antonio Porch and Fred Washington...

The small forward list for 2003 is probably the most talented in the class, and it's a testament to how good of a prospect that Dominic McGuire is that he heads the list. McGuire even lacks a jumpshot, at this point, but is so good, so athletic and so active around the basket and handles the ball so well that he's #1. Close behind is Wendell White, who is probably just as athletic and does have a pretty jumpshot and a nice, physical body that can go inside. Trevor Ariza could have the most potential at the position, and is one of the best slashers. He has played sometimes more like a power forward, but his body is more suited for a wing, and this spring he showed that he could play more out on the perimeter. Antonio Porch is a long, springy athlete who also likes to play inside a lot, but has shown good potential on the wing. One of the most steadily rising players in the west is Fred Washington. He started out as a 6-3 power forward, then has grown into a 6-5 small forward, but can play inside and outside. A better jumpshot is really all he needs. The position, though, might go 11-12 deep with potential high-major players, which is pretty deep with talent.
