High school season has been in the books for a few weeks now and AAU tournaments are already underway here in Florida.
Here is a look at 10 prospects in the 2021 class that could see their stocks rise here this spring.
Wesley Cadet (Northeast)
A 6’5″ pure athlete, Cadet performed at a high level for Oakland Park Northeast this season. A point guard/forward, Cadet can jump out of the gym and he’s only now hitting the surface of his full abilities.
Moussa Diabate (Florida Prep)
High major schools have already offered the 6’10” Florida Prep big man. Diabate earned offers from Tulane and Illinois earlier this month. He’s the next foreign center who is coming out of Florida Prep. Long and skinny, Diabate is going to have to fill out, but he has a mature skill set.
Walter Clayton Jr. (Lake Wales)
A 6’2″ blazer, Clayton Jr. can fly past you with his pure speed and ability to push the ball in tempo. He had a slow start to the season coming off of football, but as the year went on, the better he got. Clayton Jr. is in for a huge summer.
Deebo Coleman (West Nassau)
One of many young standouts at our Top 250 Expo at DME Academy in September, there was no surprise that Coleman was the top piece for West Nassau. A naturally gifted 6’4″ point man, Coleman is on the fast track to success.
Oteman Delancey (Lakewood)
There were plenty of bright moments for Delancey this season for a Lakewood team that needed youngsters step up due to injuries. The 6’3″ guard/forward has a nice touch on his jumper and will showcase it this summer.
Timothy Gabrelcik (East Lake)
East Lake was highly successful this season and it had plenty to do with its younger prospects. One of those players that emerged was Gabrelcik. The 6’3″ guard was talked up by coaches in the area and I witnessed his game-changing abilities with his aggressive attacking mindset.
Gabriel Ferguson (Edgewater)
Length will draw attention and Ferguson certainly has plenty of that at 6’7″. The Edgewater forward has tons of room to improve his game, but with his pure athleticism and willingness to learn on the go, he’s been playing tough basketball.
Jameon Harris (West Oaks)
Harris is a kid who strives to get better on both sides of the ball. He knows he must get stronger, faster and smarter to compete with the top players in the country. Harris plays shut down defense and has a nice weaving ability. Alongside fellow 2021 West Oaks guard AJ Neal, the duo will excel for Showtime Ballers this summer.
Javaris Rolle (Westminster)
There wasn’t much playing time to be had for Rolle at Westminster this season as the Lions capture their second straight state championship. However, Rolle is a muscular and tough guard. The 6’4″ athlete is in for an increased role next season with Zach Scott off to FGCU.
Cristian Rojas (Undecided)
On Wednesday, Rojas announced that he was transferring from Timber Creek and moving from the class of 2020 to 2021. The 5’10” guard may be skinny, but he’s one of the hardest workers out there. He has really good vision that helps him trick defenders more often than not.
