The 2022 Palmetto State Class had a very strong showing this weekend at the Prep Hoops Showcase. Lets take a look at some 2022 Palmetto State Forwards in this article right here from Greenville. 

Emanuel Richards Emanuel Richards 6'3" | SF Christ School | 2023 State NC - Blythewood HS (pictured on front) 

Richards was a MANCHILD in the paint today for the Bengals. Richards was physically beating up the Mavericks at times with his play around the cup. Richards really likes to bully defenders with his play. Richards a thick framed player scored on contact along with being relentless on the boards all game long. Richards did most of his damage inside the paint but was able to knockdown some perimeter jumpers. Richards brings a WARRIOR mentality to the floor with his aggressive style of play. 

Drake Downs Drake Downs 6'8" | PF Mauldin | 2022 State SC - Mauldin HS 

Downs runs the floor very well and fills the lane in transition from both forward spots. Downs plays the game with a good motor and ability to get off the floor and contest shots. Downs made some good post moves around the basket today while finishing inside the paint. Downs finished the game with 14 points
