West Coast 2007 Rankings: Centers

It's the time of year for the post-summer position rankings. The West Coast class of 2007 centers had an easy choice for the top spot, UCLA-committed Kevin Love, who is one of the biggest impact players to come out of the west in years...

The class of 2007 centers in the west is a very solid group, especially
at the top of the list. Love is far and away the top big man in the west and he'll be an immediate impact player at the college level. Chapman is a late-bloomer who has improved as much as anyone in the west during the last year. Holman has an extremely high upside. If he makes a commitment to the game, he could be an immediate impact guy in college. Williams has a lot of potential, with great size and length, but his skills have a ways to go before he's ready for college. Jacobson has great size and a pretty good feel, but he's still growing into his body and he's probably a couple years away from being ready.
