It seems like class of 2021 players across the country are pulling the trigger on commitments early than they would in a normal year. As we all know this certainly isn’t a normal year as the COVID-19 pandemic has limited the number of events and participants across the country.
In the Southern California recruiting landscape, many of the top 2021 prospects have pledged to Division I programs as the CIF Southern Section has decided to delay its season until March 12th at the earliest. With the altered season, rising seniors have even less time to be evaluated live by college coaches and we wanted to highlight some of the best available prospects in SoCal.
Liam WoodrumLiamWoodrum6'0" | PGAnaheim Canyon | 2021State, Anaheim Canyon – The 6-foot point guard is one of the quickest and fastest players with the ball in his hands from end to end. Woodrum does a great job of pushing the pace in transition, while also remaining controlled with his head up looking for open teammates.
Alex WadeAlexWade5'10" | PGCathedral Catholic | 2021State, Cathedral Catholic – Wade is one of the most reliable signal callers in Southern California. The 5-foot-10 point guard is a guy who runs an offense to a “T,” consistently makes the right decision and limits turnovers in both transition and half-court settings. Wade has made strides as a perimeter shooter and can consistently make defenses pay when they go under screens.
KJ BradleyKJBradley5'11" | PGCrenshaw | 2021State, Crenshaw – Bradley is one of the more under-appreciated players in all of SoCal. At 5-feet-11, the senior point guard is tough and crafty when getting into the lane and finishing around the basket. His biggest impact comes on the defensive end due to his quick hands, fundamentals and sheer willingness to get up in an offensive player.
Colin WeemsColinWeems6'0" | PGChaminade | 2021State, Chaminade – We love Weems’ ability to play both on or off the ball as a jump shooter whose IQ off the ball allows him to gain separation and create space to get an open shot, while his stable ball-handling allows him to initiate offense. The 6-footer plays in a three-guard lineup alongside two Division 1-bound guards, but has found a way to show that he’s capable of playing at the next level, as well.
