Fours are often both looked at for rebounding and defensive versatility. An inside and outside scoring game is needed to stick out. Can you defend the post and switch onto a guard?
The modern power forward is a tough position. But, hey, someone's going to figure out a way to combine these skills and earn a scholarship. And some of those guys are right here:
[no. 40] Desmond Watson | 6-4 F | Columbus DeSales / All Ohio Red
Mismatch problem because of his ball skills, strength, and quickness. Watson twists up forwards when they're on an island with him. Effective facing up from the elbow and working out of the triple threat. Watson also changes directions quickly with his dribble out to the arch. Finishes through contact.
[no. 42] Enavell Lighty | 6-6 PF | Shaker Heights / Hardwork Basketball - White
Lighty remains Ohio's best kept secret having not played last season at Shaker after transferring from VASJ. His bloodline, ball skills, and size keep Lighty in the mix. Playing consistently over the next year, however, is crucial.
