Forwards are a sought after commodity, especially at the high school level. Their size adds a baseline and requisite versatility that may not have been present without such size. Here are some incoming sophomores and freshman who proved they're not just tall, but have more in their toolbox than expected.

 

Brady Greene - Rough Riders/Riverdale - 24’

Greene pushed the break every opportunity he got, all while being the tallest player on the team at 6’5. One word that embodies Greene is energy. He fights for rebounds even if it means leaping on second, third, and fourth chance opportunities.

I’ll say it again, Greene will do everything in his power to beat you on the break, where he scored 12 of his 19 total points.
