The 2023 class is the most loaded we have seen for a while and there is depth at every position group. Here’s a look a the top small forwards in the Junior Class. This list does not include players who were in the top 10 of the class.
, Madison Central – Jaylen made a case this season to be considered the best shooter in the 23 class and on the short list of best shooters in all of Kentucky. Davis is long and wiry at 6’5 and has improved so much as a ball handler and driver in the last few seasons. He got a very early offer from EKU but should be on the radar for D1 programs this summer.
, Owen County – Another player with the opportunity to impress D1 coaches this summer is the 6’5 scoring wing from Owen County. Teagan is among the most valuable players to his team in Kentucky and finished the season among the state’s leading scorers. Moore already has over 2,000 career points and could get to 3,000 with a big Senior season.
, Ballard – Fuller was never really able to get into a groove this season once he was finally eligible to play for the Bruins but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s a big and talented wing who has offensive versatility and has improved tremendously as a defender the past few seasons. He tweeted an offer from Southern Utah last March.
, Pikeville – Having not known that Samons reclassed to 2023 until recently, he was sort of thrown into the mix with a TBD on his ranking for now. Rylee had multiple early D1 offers before tearing his knee last season and missing nearly a year. At 6’7 with the ability to shoot from range, Samons will definitely draw coaches back to his games this spring and summer.
, North Laurel – Davidson has a blue collar game in the sense that he does a lot of dirty work for North Laurel on a nightly basis but he is also super skilled and can score the ball at all 3 levels. Ryan can get you 20 points and 10+ rebounds every night in the 13th region and could certainly earn offers this summer playing his true position on the wing in AAU.
