Tune in as we highlight more forwards that multiple college programs should add to their recruiting list. Except to hear about these prospects having a huge impact at the next level, in the next few years.
Okla is a versatile forward with a polished overall game. He has the ability to finish in traffic on the inside, while also being able to hit the longball. Okla is also big time on the defensive end using his length and mobility to get steals and block shots. He also has the ability to turn and face the basket, and put the ball on the floor and get all the way to rim for dunks and finishes above the rim.
Kulenovic is a forward that can heat up from beyond the arc off the catch and shoot. He also has solid footwork down low, which allows him to get defenders in the air and finish. Kulenovic is also a big time rebounder on both ends of the floor who has a high motor. Kulenovic also has a work ethic that spreads to his teammates. He also flourishes in the half court, running the pick and roll well.
Nyakundi is another prospect who impacts the game in multiple ways. He has high-level versatility, including a knack for getting open on the inside and finishing over defenders. He can also score with his back to the basket and get up for powerful dunks. Nyakundi also has the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter and is a tough defender who blocks shots without fouling often.
Costello is a lengthy wing with tons of upside and potential. He can shoot the ball well from outside and has a smooth shooting motion. He also displays a soft touch around the basket, along with the ability to make plays for teammates and create off the dribble. Still only a rising sophomore, Costello has an intriguing skillset and is a high academic prospect as well who currently has a 3.8 GPA.
Hogarth has been a big time stockriser, gaining multiple offers. He is an explosive forward who showcases a knack for getting off his feet quickly. He is a strong finisher on the inside and consistently attacks the basket with force. He is also a consistent rebounder on both ends of the floor and protects the rim well . Another aspect of Hogarth’s game that stands out is his high motor. He is definitely a player to keep an eye on during the summer.
