Nashville, TN (Future150) -- With high school seasons winding down across the country and teams starting their playoff runs, AAU season is right around the corner. Over the next few weeks, Future150 will be taking a closer look at some players who appear to be peaking at the right time and are seemingly poised for a big spring. Today, we are taking a look at the power forward group. Some of these players may be familiar names, while others are just beginning to take off:

Thomas Bryant- Huntington Prep (WV): Bryant has long been considered one of the top prospects in this class but this year has made the transition from prospect to player as he anchors the Huntington Prep frontcourt. At 6-foot-10, he has begun to fill out and his new found aggressiveness has turned him into an absolute monster.

Chase Jeter- Bishop Gorman (NV): Jeter has burst onto the scene this summer and has continued his strong play through this winter. The big man plays well from the high post as well as on the block. He has drawn interest from a majority of the elite programs in the country.

Moustapha Diagne- Pope John XXIII (NJ): Diagne is another big man who is just starting to cash in on his potential. He has a good frame and runs the floor very well for a post player of his size. He works hard on the glass and is a great defensive big man. He will be a top 50 recruit in our updated rankings when they debut and should be a high major priority.

Horace Spencer- Findlay Prep (NV): Spencer has always had a tantalizing amount of potential and since he has enrolled at Findlay Prep, has begun to reach that potential. He is one of the top defensive big men in his class and his offensive game is starting to come around as well. He will have an impact as a rim defender, rebounder, and shot blocker from day one.

Josh Sharma- Northfield Mount Hermon (MA): Sharma is a skilled forward that can shoot it from beyond the arc or go on the block and score it. Consistency has always been a bit of a concern with Sharma, as well as durability, but the big man has calmed any major concerns about that this year. Look for him to have a big year with the Mass Rivals.

Esa Ahmad- Shaker Heights (OH): Ahmad has grown a couple of inches during this season and has turned into a major target because of it. He is a bruising big man who can score on the block or from the high post. He had already drawn significant interest before the growth spurt, but the couple of extra inches make him a can’t miss high-major forward.

Trey Kalina- North Cobb Christian (GA): Kalina is flying a bit under-the-radar at this point but that is about to change. The big man is having a solid season and is seemingly solidifying himself as a high-major recruit. He has good hands and can shoot it out of the high post. He is in position to have a monster AAU season with the Atlanta Xpress.

Chris Silva- Roselle Catholic (NJ): Silva is just starting to tap into his potential and so far the results have been promising. He is a high motored forward that attacks the glass and uses his freakish athleticism to finish everything around the rim. Look for Silva to draw more interest this spring and summer.
