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.

Nolan NaessNolanNaess6'7" | PFLaguna Beach | 2021State, Laguna Beach - The 6-foot-7 forward is as solid as they come when talking about basketball IQ, intangibles and versatility. Naess understands how to play in a system and knows what parts of his game work best for him. He can stretch the floor with the three-point shot, but is also great at cutting into and exposing the weak spots of a defense. Naess is a very good passer out of high and low post positions.
