West Coast 2008 Small Forward List

The West Coast 2008 small forwards have a long way to go if any of them aspire to playing at a high level in college. With that in mind, we're going to hold off on ranking this group until we see some players who deserve to be rated among the best in the west...

The 2008 West Coast class of small forwards is not a strong group. In fact, heading into their junior year, this is one of the more unimpressive groups we've seen in the last several years. Too many of the players are selfish or just don't know how to play the game. There are some players, however, with potential and we hold out hope that a few of them will figure it out and develop into solid prospects. Until that happens, though, we're not going to rank this position. Assuming that a few of these guys separate themselves from the group, we'll rank them after they've finished their junior seasons. In no particular order, here is a list of some players who have a chance to be on those rankings.
