The 2023 Florida class is packed with up and coming talent that seems to be bigger, stronger and more developed than the next.

One of those steady athletes is 2023 6’4″, 170-pound guard Carl Cherenfant. He will play for Ft. Lauderdale Calvary Christian this fall as a freshman.

“I’m really excited to attend Calvary this fall for my freshman year, getting in the classroom and getting on the court getting better with my teammates,” Cherenfant told Prep Hoops. “I think we have great pieces and we are young, we will be ready to make a run next year in Florida in our new class 3A. I’m just excited about what’s coming next at CCA.”

Cherenfant earned his first collegiate offer on Friday from Western Kentucky. Clemson has also shown interest.

He says his jump shot was something he improved greatly during his 8th grade season.

“Also, different dynamics with my shooting involving one dribble pull ups, off the dribble moves, the 3-ball and just understanding and maturity in my game,” he said.

This summer, Cherenfant is spending time with both the KT Kings for the 8th grade national and local tournaments and Florida Pro, up with the 15U squad in the EYBL Circuit.

“This summer I’m ready to showcase my skills on the local and national level and make a big name for myself and show everyone that I’m one of the best 8th graders around the nation,” he said.

Perper: What makes you special?

Cherenfant: The attributes that separate me from others is I get to the basket with ease. I can constantly shoot and make the 3. I also have the ability to make the mid-range shot. I’m someone that is so versatile on the floor. What’s special about me is I’m just scratching the surface I have great size and length and it helps me defend multiple positions. I’m a great teammate and I love when my teammates succeed. I look to improve every day.

Long, determined and packed with a high IQ and pure athleticism, Charenfant is just scratching the surface. One thing is clear, he’s ready to take on more than just a leadership role. He’s ready to break out and score in bunches during summer ball and this fall for an always sound Calvary Christian squad. Don’t forget the name Carl Cherenfant anytime soon.
