West Coast 2007 Rankings: Power Forwards

The 2007 West Coast power forward rankings have a couple surprises near the top of the list. The best player, though, was an easy choice and he's still considering several schools across the country...

The power forwards in the west for 2007 are a solid, if unspectacular,
group. Singler is the one obvious elite prospect and, long term, we
think he'll end up the best overall player from the class. Gant is
still somewhat raw, but he has terrific tools and just needs some
coaching to end up an elite player. King is an outstanding shooter
with deep range and he should be a very productive player in college.
Jones is relatively unknown outside of the west, but we think San
Diego got a steal when he committed to the Toreros. Speaking of steals, Montana got a great one in Selvig. He's a very skilled big man who should have a great career in the Big Sky.
