Which power forwards and centers in the 2021 class have boosted their stock the most in the latest PHI Rankings?  We take a look at them here!

 

KJ DebrickKJDebrick6'7" | CSpringfield Lanphier | 2021StateIL (Springfield Lanphier)

Current Ranking: #44
Previous Ranking: #95

Debrick is a 6’8” center that was extremely raw last year, but the 2021 post has greatly improved.  He is a wall inside blocking everything that comes near him.  Offensively he makes power moves and even hit a three on occasion.  High level rebounder that was a major stock booster with his play during the first half of the season.

 

Devon VanderheydtDevonVanderheydt6'6" | PFWashington | 2021StateIL (Washington)

Current Ranking: #51
Previous Ranking: #80

The 6’6” forward has a ton of momentum after a breakout summer with Peoria Area Elite.  The junior is a strong kid that can really stretch the floor.  Excellent three point shooter especially off the catch.  Spots up and flairs in pick/pop situations.  Quick and concise release.  Decent athlete that can play either forward spot, but his biggest value is probably as a stretch four.

 

 

Phillip HolmesPhillipHolmes6'7" | CSimeon | 2021StateIL (Simeon)

Current Ranking: #58
Previous Ranking: #106

Holmes is a 6’7” post that has intriguing physical tools with his broad shoulders, length, and mobility.  Efficient with his touches around the hoop, runs the floor, and is a solid rebounder.  Emerging as a post for the Wolverines that has shown flashes this year.

 

 

 

Nathan HallNathanHall6'7" | PFCollinsville | 2021StateIL (Collinsville)

Current Ranking: #59
Previous Ranking: NR

The 6’7” power forward is extremely active around the hoop.  Has the ability to face up knocking down a mid-range jumper and stretch it out to three.  Runs the floor.  Good rebounder in traffic and I like what he does defensively blocking shots and overall using his length to be a tough post defender.

 

 

Donald CoatsDonaldCoats6'7" | PFThornton | 2021StateIL (Thornton)

Current Ranking: #62
Previous Ranking: NR

Coats is very intriguing bursting on our radar with his play against Kankakee in a primetime game.  The 6’7” forward has excellent length and good size.  The projectable 2021 snatched rebounds, hit a pair of runners, and scored inside on a jump stop.  Upside prospect!
