During the first edition reviewing some of the best forwards from these various team camps, I discussed forwards from some of the best teams in the state.  In part two of this review of forwards, I will highlight players from prominent teams in the Boot but also a couple players who just genuinely had good summers.  While some of these players may be from lower classifications, they are forwards who can play none the less.  

Jordan Mathews Jordan Mathews 6'5" | PF Peabody | 2024 LA (6’5" / PF / Peabody)

If his sophomore year is anything like the way he played in June, Jordan Mathews Jordan Mathews 6'5" | PF Peabody | 2024 LA is going to put class 4A on notice.  Mathews is a skilled four man who will be the primary post option for the Warhorses.  He is active and will attack rebounds on the offensive and defensive glass.  Mathews is not afraid to put the ball on the deck and powered through defenders during team camps at ASH and Airline when he did so.  He may be a young player but he will be a hard to handle for anyone next season.  

Jalen Taylor Jalen Taylor 6'3" | PF Benton | 2022 State LA (6’4" / PF / Benton)

Taylor was a key back up and spot starter
