2011 Small Forward Rankings

There are a lot of good talent in the small forward position in the 2011 class. Plenty of high, mid, and low major talent to go around in this position.

H=High major H- = High major Stretch
M+ = Mid-major, higher possibly, M=Mid-major, M- =Mid-major stretch
L+ = Low major, higher possibly, L= Low-major, L- = Low-major stretch/D2/NAIA

1. Branden Dawson 6’7 Gary Wallace H Athletic, good motor, finishes well in traffic against contact, okay shooter. Would like him to improve shooting.
2. Austin Etherington 6’6 Hamilton Heights H- Shooter, long wingspan. Good ball handler and court vision. I love his competitiveness. Committed to Indiana University
3. Ryan Taylor 6’5 Lawrence North H- Strong and athletic right now. Needs to be more consistent from the outside and has been so far this summer. His game is expanding from a PF to a SF but he still has some work to do. Committed to Louisville
4. Steven Jamison 6’6 Broad Ripple M+ Long, streaky shooter, okay handles, Runs very well, good motor. More consistency from perimeter shooting would make him a great mid-major or higher prospect.
5. Rontray Chavis 6’4 Princeton M+ Skilled tweener(small forwad and power forward), quick, athletic, solid body, has some range to his jumper. Gets a bit out of control at times.
6. Chandler Thomas 6’5 Cathedral L+ Very good post player, good athlete, strong. Needs to become a wing.
7. Brian Stolarz 6’4 Munster L+ Strong, good jumper, good set shooter, good rebounder. Not great with the ball…needs to improve ball-handling and overall perimeter skills.
8. Jon Trawick 6’2 Richmond L Strong, athletic, good set shooter. Needs to improve ball handling and defense

11. Robbie Howell 6’5 Tri-Central L Versatile small forward that has a very good mid-range game although with good strength
12. Josh Gentry 6’5 Pike L+ Mega long, weird looking shot, good energy. Will force shots
