Best Available: 2019 Small Forwards

Recruiting
Indiana

Posted On: 11/27/18 8:21 PM

The high school season is here and we have hit a little bit of a stalemate with commitments but there might be some movement on the horizon. At the end of each month throughout the season, we will be diving into those players still on the board and looking at who fits where. Things can change in the span of a week so each month should provide us with a whole new view on the landscape.

Today, we are looking at the 2019 small forwards and the players still remaining on the board. We list the DI, DII, NAIA, and DIII targets. As a note, these are based off of where we think the player will excel at the highest level. Players will get recruited above and below the level we have them listed for but it is our estimation that these are where they would succeed the most.

Already Off The Board:

Only one name was added in here and that was Blackhawk Christian wing Frankie Davidson who is off the board to the University of Indianapolis. He was one of the more quiet recruitments so far but looked to stay home for the local DII program. Already a pretty impressive list of small forwards just got a little longer.

DI Targets Still On The Board:

The only name left is that of Keion Brooks Jr.. The talented wing is in the same spot as he was a month ago. His official visits are done and he doesn’t have anything left but to make a decision. Could come anytime but against, like Trayce Jackson-Davis, he could look to wait until the Spring to see where college programs are with their rosters.

DII Targets Still On The Board:

The list of DII targets has been exhausted. With Frankie Davidson coming off the board, there isn’t anyone really left at this point but most of the local programs picked up a guy already if they needed one. We do think we could add some players to this list next time around when we have seen some of these teams play.

NAIA Targets Still On The Board:

This group could be interesting to watch. Myles Johnson has been a guy that could breakout but playing for a Homeschool team isn’t always going to help.  Smithey, Plunkett, and Robinson are guys that, if things go well, they could see their stock move them up a level.   Reis Thomas is still hurt but could be back soon. That would be a guy that could give you a way different look come college.

DIII Targets Still On The Board:

For those at this level, there are quite a few options still not he board, obviously. Now, you have some time to get out and see these guys if you haven’t.  Good size and scoring ability of some. Like Hines, Robinson, Snodgrass, and Sherrod as the top scoring options for this level.
