West Coast 2006 Small Forwards

Stephen Rogers, 6-7 SF from Mesa Mountain View tabbed at #7

The small forwards in the west for 2006 are a talented group. Wallace gets the nod at the top spot due to his versatility. He's a very good athlete, with excellent all-around ball skills. He moves very well laterally and has a chance to be an outstanding defender. Budinger is a big-time leaper and a good shooter to the stripe. Nelson is another good shooter with deep range and the ability to create his own shot or set up teammates. Pondexter is a very explosive athlete. His ball skills have improved in the last year and he's also a potentially great defender. Galloway is the best passer at the position, with outstanding vision and the ability to create for others. With an improved jump shot, he would have a chance to move up this list.
