With the 2018-19 season quickly approaching, there are endless prospects out to show they can play with the big boys at the next level.

Last month, I broke down point guards from the 2019-2021 classes that had a lot to prove. Now, it is time to look at a different positional group.

Here’s a look at five more 2021 forwards who will be looking to do just that here this season.

2021 – Part 1

Willie Jones (Seffner Christian)

The 6’4″ forward showed me promise this summer with Henson Select. Willie Jones played previously at Spoto and now he gives Seffner Christian a chance to develop a younger forward for year’s to come. Expect Jones to be very active as a varsity starter.

Makai Willis (Florida State University)

There is endless potential for Makai Willis. The 6’7″ forward has a steady inside presence and a solid feel for the floor. He can also mix it up defensively as a shot blocker. Willis shoots well from the mid-range and can build up his progress with more jumpers falling.

Kameron Johnson (Dr. Krop)

For a 15U Team Knight program, Kameron Johnson is one of many athletes that showed flashes. The 6’5″ Dr. Krop guard/forward is a lengthy body who is developing right now. Expect him to generate heavy minutes and develop his game.

Ahmad Watkins (Dunbar)

There were times last year that Ahmad Watkins simply took over games as a freshman. For an improved Dunbar squad, the 6’3″ guard will serve as a pure scorer for his side. As he gains confidence as a leader then he’ll be better off.

Gabriel Ferguson (Lake Highland Prep)

A 6’7″ forward, Gabriel Ferguson is coming along at his new school Lake Highland Prep. Previously at Edgewater, he’s been a reliable mid-range shooter. His long arms give him a chance to win battles in the paint. Ferguson grabs boards with ease, but certainly needs to become more impactful consistently to further his stock.
