This group of forwards will play primarily in the front court but not always in the post and certainly not always with their back to the basket. There is a versatile group of athletes that include physically imposing players and skilled quicker bigs as well.

Joseph Thompson leads the way in this group and he continues to see his stock rise. 2017 is a deep class and he's one to watch as a player who can play the 3, 4 or 5 and has perimeter as well as post skills. Like Thompson, David Williams is emerging and a big but athletic forward whose stock is sure to rise more.

When it comes to athletes, Christian Edwards is just that as one of the best high jumpers in the south. He'll likely end up in college for track but stars in basketball as well. Azahrea Earnest is still trying to figure out how good he is and may transition to the 2 or 3 at some point in his career. He has the handles and shooting ability but needs to add that instinct.

Keyaton Thompson and Bruce Jordan-Swilling are both football stars with a plethora of offers and will surely take their talents to the gridiron in college. The others
