The grassroots season has come and gone. While everything about the experience was different, there were still standout players and exciting moments throughout every weekend. 

Here are some of the top 17U forwards from the summer:

Moni is arguably the top big guy in North Dakota’s 2021 class and the big reason why is he is terrific on the defensive end of the floor. He’s 6-foot-9 and while he’s not a big shot-blocker, he’s excellent at diverting shots in the paint and defending without fouling. He’s really smart on that end of the floor. He’s in good position to help and recover, he does a good job fighting for positioning and he rebounds everything in his area. I want to see more from him on the offensive end of the floor when it comes to screening, crashing the glass and finishing. He’s a streaky perimeter shooter who can certainly light it up in pick-and-pop spots and his basketball intellect shows up on that end as he’s a very good passer.
