Top Unsigned Small Forwards

Shabazz Muhammad - No surprise, he's going to wait until the Spring to sign and beyond speculation, there is no UCLA for the 6-6 wing. Muhammad has stuck with the same list of schools that features UCLA, Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and Texas A&M among others. His most recent visit was to UNLV to take in their opener.

William Howard - Howard, a french wing, has high major game. DraftExpress compares his game to Oklahoma City Thunder's Thabo Sefolosha. He's hearing from Providence, Rhode Island and Washington per and could expand his list once he qualifies academically.

Dyshawn Pierre - There is no other way to describe his game without using the word playmaker. Pierre scores, rebounds, and gets his teammates involved. The Canadian has acquired triple-doubles on the international scene and has also made a mark in the US on the AAU circuit. He's a very underrated prospect that could be a impact player at the college level.

Savon Goodman - The former Villanova commit is making strides towards becoming a wing. Since decomitting, schools such as Arizona, Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Texas, UCLA, USC and Xavier have shown interest and are all in play for the 6-6 forward.

Winston Shepard - Shepard is an athletic wing with an interesting game. He's a pleasure to have in transition and an advantage on the wing. He  recently trimmed his list to Georgia, New Mexico, Oklahoma State, San Diego State, UNLV and UTEP.

Devonta Pollard - Out in transition, Pollard is your guy. The 6-7 athletic forward from Kemper County High will be a major addition to a college program. There are reports that Alabama, Mississippi State, Texas and Marquette, are trailing Kentucky right now for his services.

Aaron Ross - 6-6 Ross failed to qualify at Arkansas in the fall and took his talents to prep school and reclassified to the class of 2012. He planned to re-sign with Arkansas but however, according to CBS Sports, Arkansas has had limited contact and many other schools are stepping up. Dayton, Missouri, Nebraska and Washington are all interested.

Billydee Williams - A great outside shooter and also a good slasher. Williams provides an excellent threat on the wing that can hurt you in many ways. He plans to sign late and currently holds offers from Florida Gulf Coast, James Madison, Louisiana Tech, Murray State, North Florida, Oklahoma State, Richmond, Towson and UTEP. Auburn, Kansas State and Miami are also interested.
