Having boots on the ground coverage from the Peach Jam and 3SSB Championships made last week a very busy week for us here at Prep Hoops Indiana. However, we still made time to release our updated Class of 2025 Prospect Rankings. We did not get out much other content around those rankings though as our coverage was focused on the two largest recruiting events of the summer. So, we will now begin to dive into the rankings as we always do highlighting stock-risers, new names, positional breakdowns, regional rankings, and more. Let’s dive into our positional breakdowns and take a look at the best small forwards in the Class of 2025.
Koehler has catapulted himself to the top of the Class of 2025 small forward position as his on-court skill and production begins to catch up with his serious upside. A 6’8″ left-handed shooter is always going to grad your attention and Koehler came on strong towards the end of the season for Cathedral and continued showcasing his skills into the summer months. The mid-major offers are starting to come his way as well.
There aren’t many, if any, more physically imposing wings in the class than this Marion product. Townsend is a strong, 6’5″ small forward with the ball handling skills of a point guard. He is excellent at attacking the basket off of the dribble where his size allows him to punish smaller defenders.
This 6’5″ Bloomington North wing has really burst onto the scene this spring and summer after averaging 11.7 points as a sophomore. He jumped all the way to #23 in the class due to his tremendous upside. Lindeman handles the ball well for his size and should really break out taking over the primary scoring role for the Cougars as a junior.
Already a highly sought after Crossroads League recruit, Wellman could still see his recruitment take another jump over the next year. He is a skilled, physical wing that can score it in a variety of ways and has been one of the most consistently productive players for Indiana Game 16u on the UA Rise circuit.
Part of the well-known Jeffersonville trio, Douglas has experienced a bit of a breakout summer with Indiana Elite Team Tradition 16u. The versatile wing is excellent off of the dribble with the ability to play a bit of a point-forward type of role. Douglas’ strength allows him to play through smaller defenders while his skill level is tough for bigger defenders to handle. Now ranked #29 in the Class of 2025.
One of the more intriguing long-term prospects in the class, Davis just keeps getting better and better. The strong 6’6″ wing with impressive athleticism has all of the physical tools you could ask for. Davis can stretch the floor out to three-point range, play above the rim inside, and rebounds at a high level on both ends of the floor.
Another favorite long-term prospect in the class, don’t be surprised if English keeps shooting up the rankings. The 6’4″ athlete is as smooth as they come on the offensive end with a good outside shot and the ability to knife his way through the defense and attack the rim with explosiveness.
Singleton is still flying a little under-the-radar, but that has started to change after a strong summer with Grand Park Premier 16u on the UAA circuit. The 6’6″ wing is athletic in transition and has the tools to be a multi-positional defender at the next level.
It is great to see Craig back on the court after a long injury recovering. The talented wing flashed some of his old skills at the Adidas Gold Championships with Indiana Ice scoring it in a variety of ways with crafty moves. He will have a chance to move back up this list as he rounds back into shape.
This class is deep with long, athletic wings and Sloss has definitely emerged as one of the more intriguing ones. He averaged 7.4 points per game as a sophomore at Evansville Harrison and has parlayed a solid high school season into a very strong spring and summer on the AAU circuit.
