- Our college is recruiting for the position of small forward, colloquially known as three, is one of the five positions in a regulation basketball game and is commonly abbreviated "SF". Small forwards are typically somewhat shorter, quicker, and leaner than power forwards and centers, but on occasion are just as tall. The small forward position is considered to be perhaps the most versatile of the five main basketball positions, due to the nature of its role. The typical placement for a small forward would be between the key and three-point line.

Most small forwards are highly versatile and highly essential in a line-up.  Small forwards are primarily responsible for scoring points and also often as secondary or tertiary rebounders behind the power forwards and centers, although a few, who play as point forwards have considerable passing responsibilities. Many small forwards however, are prolific scorers. The styles with which small forwards amass their points vary widely, are very accurate straight up shooters, while others prefer to "bang inside", initiate and/or not shy away from physical contact with opposing players, while others are primarily slashers. 

One common thread between all kinds of small forwards is an ability to "get to the line", that is have opposing players called for committing shooting fouls against them, as fouls are frequently called on the defense when offensive players "take the ball hard" to the basket, that is, aggressively attempt post-up plays, lay-ups, or slam dunks. Therefore, accurate foul shooting is an imperative skill for small forwards, many of whom record a large portion of their points from the foul line.  Defense is often a major priority for small forwards, who are often counted on using their athleticism and size as defensive advantages.  With their length and athleticism, forwards are able to guard at many positions on the floor and are often called upon to do so.
