West Coast 2010 Rankings: Power Forwards

The top 2010 West Coast power forwards include such prospects as Terrence Jones, James Johnson and Yannick Atanga, among others...

The West Coast power forwards in 2010 are a fairly deep group, with mid to high major players deep into the list. Jones gets the nod for the top spot due to his overall skill level. While he likes to play on the perimeter, it's Jones' potential as a low-post scorer that makes him such an intriguing prospect. Johnson needs to refine his offensive skills, but he has the size and athleticism to be a very good player down the road. Atanga is a warrior with perhaps the best motor in the class. He will impact games initially with his defense and rebounding. Ritchart is a skilled face-up four man with a very good feel and sneaky athleticism. Gage is another face-up four with a very nice stroke to the stripe.
