This has been one of the toughest years to get out and see players from a cancelled high school tournament to minimal AAU events. Regardless, we saw as much as we could and now are updating our prospect rankings. Today, we continue with a look at the 2023 class and our breakdown of the top small forwards in the class.

With Jalen Hooks Jalen Hooks 6'6" | SF Crispus Attucks | 2023 State #88 Nation IN at the top, you have a 6’6 wing with DI offers but he’s not going to be alone for long. Crispus Attucks’ Qushawn Ware Qushawn Ware 6'4" | SF Crispus Attucks | 2023 State IN and Park Tudor’s Jermaine Coleman Jermaine Coleman 6'7" | SF Park Tudor | 2023 State IN have both taken big steps forward in their development and pushed themselves into the Top 10 overall and Top 3 at this position.  We have also seen a number of new players join in this time around with Sam Orme Sam Orme 6'8" | SF Carmel | 2023 State IN , Karson Colin Karson Colin 6'3" | SF Lake Central | 2023 State IN , Gage Sefton Gage Sefton 6'4" | SF Blackhawk Christian | 2023 State IN , and a ton of others. There are a few guys here that could see some position changes in the next year or so but regardless, this seems to be the deepest position at this stage.
