Here are some of the top unsigned Class of 2018 forwards in the St. Louis area:
Jamarr Williams 6’7″ Northwest Academy: The rebounding machine led the Hornets to back to back Class 3 Final Fours, including the state championship in 2017. He is a blue-collar player who just outworks people in the lane and rebounds with a passion, especially on the offensive end. There are no frills to his game. Just extreme effort and production.
Adam Moore 6’6″ Duchesne: A very capable Stretch 4 who came into high school as a knockdown 3-point shooter, but his game evolved over the course of his career. His rebounding, ball handling and scoring in the post improved in the past two seasons. As a senior, Moore averaged 13.4 points and nearly eight rebounds a game.
Michael Akinwumi 6’7″ Parkway West: A strong low post player who improved by leaps and bounds during his senior year. He plays hard, rebounds strong and is a capable shot blocker. He averaged 12.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and one block a game while shooting 56 percent from the field.
Jordan Brown 6’6″ Jennings: A bouncy combo forward who helped the Warriors to a third-place finish in the Class 4 state tournament. Has good length and a skill set to go along with his size. He can put it on the floor against bigger defenders and knock down a 3-pointer. Averaged 8.5 points and five rebounds while making 46 percent from 3-point range in a limited number of attempts.
Luke Loewenstein 6’5″ Duchesne: A stout power forward who made his living in the low post during an excellent career. He used his body and physical strength to get good position around the basket and he was a good finisher once he got the ball. He averaged 10.8 points and five rebounds while shooting 60 percent from the field.
Michael Horton 6’6″ Hazelwood East: An impressive athlete who hasn’t been playing for a long time, so his best days could be ahead of him. A very explosive performer around the basket. He averaged 7.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.8 blocks this past season.
