The 2021 class in Florida is filled with talent across the state.
Prior to the season, there were 369 prospects ranked and now there have been 133 additions, bringing the total number to 502 players.
We want to rank as many kids as possible so first off college coaches can tap into our network and find kids they might not even know about. Also, having programs and kids feel included is important. All these kids play a role on their squads.

No. 1 – Moussa DiabateMoussaDiabate6'10" | PFIMG Academy | 2021State#5NationFL could possibly be part of the 2020 class (according to talks) if he decides to reclassify up. The 6’10″ stretch forward can shoot, handle the ball and protect the rim. His energy is relentless. There is no wonder the likes of UF, FSU, Auburn, Maryland, Miami and Virginia Tech have offered.
No. 2 – Langston LoveLangstonLove6'4" | SGMontverde Academy | 2021State#31NationFL is a strong guard who doesn’t back down from anyone. He is going to battle his senior year and be a problem at the next level as he continues to further his game. Villanova, Wake Forest, Marquette, UCLA, Stanford and Oklahoma State are some of his top offers.
No. 3 – Deebo ColemanDeeboColeman6'5" | SGWest Nassau | 2021State#43NationFL is a long body who is athletic, crafty with the ball and a dangerous shooter. He can score at will. Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, FSU, Memphis, Oklahoma State, UF and Georgetown represent some of his top offers.
No. 4 – Ernest RossErnestRoss6'9" | PFSanta Fe | 2021State#57NationFL is a growing product who defends the rim, mixes it up as a slasher and is really hard to defend when knocking down the mid-range. He’s loaded with upside and has room to fill out his upper body. Xavier, UF, Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State are some of his top offers.
No. 5 – Alex FudgeAlexFudge6'6" | SFLee | 2021State#88NationFL continues to get better and better and is really fun to watch. The kid is long and can blow past you in a blink of an eye. His hops are through the roof along with his high IQ. Alabama, Texas, UF, Virginia Tech, USC, Oklahoma State and Iowa State are some of his top offers.
No. 6 – Ramses MelendezRamsesMelendez6'5" | SFCrentral Pointe Christian | 2021State#141NationFL is a riser and someone who transformed from a talented spot up shooter and ballhandler to a bonafide creator and attacker. He plays the game the right way with endless purpose and energy. Offers from UF, St. John’s, USF, Oklahoma State and FAU are out there.
No. 7 – Wesley Cardet JrWesleyCardet Jr6'5" | SGNortheast | 2021State#69NationFL is a long point man who controls the floor and can toy with defenses with his stretch shooting ability. He has endless room to continue to get better which is scary. Alabama, Clemson, Miami, UF, USC and Dayton are some of his top offers.
No. 8 – Ryan NembhardRyanNembhard6'0" | PGMontverde Academy | 2021State#188NationFL plays with a high IQ much like his older brother Andrew currently at UF. At 6’0″, he isn’t super intimidating but he’s crafty with the ball, can create for himself and is a jumper who can finish with dunks and finesse. Stanford, UF and Seton Hall have all offered.
No. 9 – Michael JamesMichaelJames6'5" | SFOak Ridge | 2021State#182NationFL is a true alpha on the court and doesn’t back down from anyone. A strong and lengthy kid, he can shoot at a high clip, drive and kick and he wins a lot of 1-on-1 battles inside. Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Wake Forest and Hofstra are his top offers.
No. 10 – Josh MinottJoshMinott6'7" | PFSt. Andrew's | 2021StateFL is a bloomer who came on this summer and carried that over into a state title run with St. Andrew’s. A super bright kid, he is going to do wonders in or out of basketball. His length, jumper and finishing ability are all key attributes. Rice, Dayton, FGCU and FAU have all offered. He has just as much untapped potential as anyone on this list.
