Basketball is, and always will be, a big man’s game. There is no substitute for the contributions that post players provide to their teams. Their presence on the floor has value in and of itself. They impact the game in so many ways, especially at the high school level since many schools don’t have a true big man.

With that in mind, here are a few bigs that need to be on your radar:

Zineddine Bedri | 2021 | 6’10’’ Power Forward | TRT Basketball | Spring Creek Academy - Bedri has great size and length. The 6-foot-10-inch forward moves incredibly well for someone his size, running the floor in transition and getting back on defense. He does an outstanding job of making himself available in the post on offense, both in the high and low post. His touch around the rim is solid. He can occasionally stretch out to the mid-range and knock down shots. Beyond that, Bedri is a force on the boards at both ends as well as a sneaky good passer.
