Hard to believe but the 2023 class is almost finished. Regional tournaments are almost over and there are hundreds of Seniors who already played their final game of high school basketball. Let’s take a look at the best face up forwards in the final 2023 rankings. This does not include players in the top ten of the class overall as those have already been covered in another article.
One of the best remaining prospects in Kentucky, Edwards has the ability to face up and put the ball on the floor and attack the rim or can spot up and knock down an open three. You could make the argument that Trent is the most valuable player in the 10th region thanks to his offense and high level rim protection.
Campbell missed the early part of the season as he recovered from ACL surgery but came back in a major way, starting in January. Campbell had a massive game in the district championship last month as he had 27 points and 25 rebounds in a triple OT loss.
Signed to continue his career at EKU, Todd had a good career and his best basketball is ahead of him. Robby’s game continued to improve over the last couple of seasons as he evolved from a post up 5 man to more of a stretch 4. He even got more comfortable attacking off the dribble in his last two seasons.
One of the better passers out of the high post that Kentucky has seen in the last two seasons, Crew has been a consistent double-double threat every night out for the last two seasons. Gibson still has a lot of room to grow his game and is going to be an impact player in college.
It feels odd to be writing about Keith for one of the last times as I’ve written about him for years, going back to when he was MVP of the KBC freshman camp. There is not a player in Kentucky who plays harder or maximizes their potential like Robinson does. He’s got a blue collar work ethic and makes all the impact plays to help his team win. He’s a coach’s dream at the next level.
