The final 2019 player rankings were released this week. Today we break down some of the top small forwards listed who are expected to make an impact at the next level:
Top Dawg: Samuell Williamson is without a doubt the top small forward in the class. It is also worth noting that he was in consideration for the top spot in the rankings as a whole. The five-star’s ability to score in a variety of ways from the mid-range and beyond translates to the pro level. Louisville expects nothing but greatness from their late-rising McDonald’s All-American wing.
Coming on Strong: Isaiah Crawford had a terrific senior season with North Crowley. His team was ranked in the top three of the TABC rankings throughout the season and it had a lot to do with the 17-plus points per game he would produce. The Louisiana Tech signee is an athletic slasher that possesses a strong build at 6-foot-5. He plays to win and could be a possible steal for the Bulldog program.
Best Remaining: Jalen Wilson would have been given the best fit award if John Beilein would have remained the coach at Michigan. But with Beilein leaving to the pros, Wilson’s recruitment is opened to three schools: Kansas, Michigan, and North Carolina. The four-star wing recently finished up his visits to Kansas and North Carolina last week. Expect for a decision to be made within the next seven days.
Biggest Sleeper: Alijah Comithier‘s value as a versatile defender went under the radar throughout his high school career at Cibolo Steele. The coaching staff at Colorado-Colorado Springs will value his ability to guard each position on the floor. At 6-foot-5, Comithier will be a solid three and D option for the Mountain Lions over the next four years.
