Region 1 – District 1
Jaylen MartinJaylenMartin6'6" | CGFlorida High | 2022StateFL
& Tre’ DonaldsonTre’Donaldson6'1" | CGFlorida High | 2022StateFL
If there was a year for Florida High to make a deep run in 3A, this is it. It has been building up with 2022 pair Martin and Donaldson. Martin, a 6-6 guard/forward holds offers from UF, Georgetown, IUPUI, Arkansas Little Rock, Virginia Tech, Ole Miss, USF, Stetson and TCU. He averaged nearly 16.0 PPG as a sophomore and should do even more damage as a speedy and strong playmaker. Donaldson, a 6-2 guard has been a key contributor since his 8th grade season. He has blossomed into a top safety on the football field earning offers from the likes of Alabama, UF and FSU and more. He is a confident and quick-twitch point man.
...2021 6-8 forward Makai WillisMakaiWillis6'7" | PFFlorida High | 2021StateFL
is a skilled big man for this group who is headed to Fairfield next fall. A new athletic piece at the program is 2021 6-3 guard Javian MosleyJavianMosley6'3" | SGFlorida High | 2021StateFL
, a Mercer commit who transferred in from Georgia Westside. 2023 6-2 guard Anthony RobinsonAnthonyRobinson6'1" | PGFlorida High | 2023StateFL
is one of the best pure scorers in his class with offers from Auburn, Stetson and Alabama State. Lastly, 2021 6-5 forward Kai FarlinKaiFarlin6'5" | PFFlorida High | 2021StateFL
is a jack of all trades player who can slash and run the floor.
O’rell BrooksO’rellBrooks5'11" | SGMaclay | 2021StateFL
& Dozie OkorojiDozieOkoroji6'5" | SFMaclay | 2022StateFL
Maclay is set up for success with a few really nice prospects to lean on. Brooks, a 2021 5-11 guard is the glue of this offense as he averaged 12.4 PPG a season ago and is a steady lead ballhandler. Okoroji, a 2022 6-5 forward averaged just shy of 10.0 PPG last season and is a bonafide rangy athlete on both ends of the floor. 2023 6-4 forward Blaise WallaceBlaiseWallace6'6" | PFMaclay | 2023StateFL
the riser for this group after he averaged 10.0 PPG and showed a keen ability to finish at the glass.

Region 1 – District 2
Jalen GilmoreJalenGilmore6'3" | CGBishop Snyder | 2022StateFL
& Manok LualManokLual6'8" | PFBishop Snyder | 2022StateFL
A true contender, Bishop Snyder has a large influx of young talent under the fold. Gilmore, a 2022 6-3 guard is an emerging talent up in Northeast Florida. He can handle the rock, drive with ease and shoot it at a high clip. Lual, a 2022 6-9 forward is just scratching the surface after transferring in from Wolfson. A raw long athlete, he’s earned offers from Kennesaw State, Stetson and Western Illinois.
...Balungu is another new face at his 6-4 frame. The 2022 guard/forward transferred in from Ridgeview and can flat out jump on both ends of the floor. Hicks, a 2021 6-3 guard returns from West Nassau to be a key ballhandler and steady scorer. Lewis, a 2021 6-3 guard/forward is one of the most versatile and tough nosed defenders in the state.
James Lee RepassJamesLee Repass6'10" | PFProvidence | 2021State#225NationFL
Lee Repass committed early on in the summer to Furman. The 2021 6-10 big is a brute on the boards and has very smooth feet and upper body strength that hurts defenses time and time again. His jumper is an asset when he is left open as well. Look for him to close out his high school year the right way. 2021 6-2 guard Jack DillardJackDillard6'0" | PGProvidence | 2021StateFL
is an integral piece to this group with his smooth shot and smart attacking who is committed to Embry Riddle. Also, 2022 6-4 forward Seth AllenSethAllen6'2" | CGProvidence | 2022StateFL
is a tweener who battles on the glass and really sets the tone alongside Repass.
Bryce TurnerBryceTurner6'5" | SFAndrew Jackson | 2021StateFL
& Marquez RayMarquezRay6'7" | PFAndrew Jackson | 2021StateFL
One of the hardest working defenses in the entire state, Jackson has been a mainstay at the state tournament these last two seasons and makes scoring beyond difficult. Ray, a 2021 6-10 forward is finally back to 100 percent health and his stretching ability on drives and blocks/boards are huge for this team. Turner, a 2021 6-6 forward is a skilled ballhandler and shooter who is highly athletic and a major factor after coming in from Sandalwood.
Beza MillerBezaMiller6'0" | PGEpiscopal | 2023StateFL
& Mark FlakusMarkFlakus6'1" | SGEpiscopal | 2022StateFL
Episcopal will have reliable guard play, that is for sure. Miller, a 2023 6-1 guard is one of my favorite maturing ballhandlers. He is really good instincts, moves well and plays lightyears ahead of his age. Flakus, a 2022 6-1 guard verbally committed to UNF earlier this summer and is a high-volume shooter dripping in confidence.

Region 1 – District 3
Adrian BloodworthAdrianBloodworth6'0" | CGP.K. Yonge | 2021StateFL
& Christian NormanChristianNorman5'9" | PGPK Yonge | 2021StateFL
Always in command of an offense and vocal, as can be, Bloodworth was the top piece for this PK Yonge squad last season and it will be the same here in 2020-21. The 2021 5-11 guard is a gamer who doesn’t back down from a challenge. He can score in bunches (17.1 PPG in 2019-20). Norman, a 2021 5-9 guard is a nice counterpart who had nice outings often, averaging 14.9 PPG as a junior. Two other names to remember here are 2022 6-2 guard/forward Aaron SmallAaronSmall6'2" | CGP.K. Yonge | 2022StateFL
(10.2 PPG in 2019-20), he plays a slashing role and 2023 6-2 guard Greg MaxwellGregMaxwell6'0" | SGP.K. Yonge | 2023StateFL
(8.3 PPG in 2019-20) who is just figuring it all out.
Chavaris DumasChavarisDumas6'0" | PGInterlachen | 2023StateFL
One of the youngest starting fives in the state a season ago, Interlachen should stand to be a bit more seasoned this fall. Dumas, a 2023 6-0 guard is a lightning bolt out on the floor and the most gifted all-around scorer for this program (12.1 PPG in 2019-20). 2023 6-0 guard Jaden PerryJadenPerry6'1" | SGInterlachen | 2023StateFL
(9.2 PPG in 2019-20) can flat out shoot it and 2023 6-1 guard/forward Der’Tavius MackDer’TaviusMack6'2" | PFInterlachen | 2023FL
(7.5 PPG in 2019-20) is a leaper and powerful finisher.
Jacques NjeanwobiJacquesNjeanwobi6'5" | SFTrinity Catholic | 2021StateFL
& LJ PughLJPugh6'0" | PGTrinity Catholic | 2022StateFL
Njeanwobi is a prospect who has struggled with injuries but is now back to his full capacity. At 6-5, the 2021 forward is a physical attacker and rebounder who should routinely produce double double nights. Pugh, a 2022 6-0 guard is a gifted and powerful finisher who likes to get inside and finish.

Region 1 – District 4
Zavien WilliamsZavienWilliams6'0" | CGWindermere Prep | 2021StateFL
& Elijiah Hulsewe (Windermere Prep)
Windermere Prep rebuilt the program a year ago and now it is time to make a run. Zavien WilliamsZavienWilliams6'0" | CGWindermere Prep | 2021StateFL
, a 2021 5-11 guard is a high IQ playmaking guard who scores inside and grabs boards with his effort and jumping ability. Hulsewe is the big man down low who can shoot the mid-range and simply move guys around for dunks and rebounds. Jayden WilliamsJaydenWilliams6'3" | SGWindermere Prep | 2022StateFL
, a 2022 6-5 forward continues to grow in height and his game is expanding along the way. 2021 6-7 forward Gabriel FergusonGabrielFerguson6'7" | PFWindermere Prep | 2021StateFL
arrived from Lake Highland Prep and is a long body who can drive and block shots often.
Eduardo PlacerEduardoPlacer6'1" | CGMaster's | 2023StateFL
Placer has sprouted up to 6-4. The 2023 guard carved out a role for himself as a freshman at Oviedo Master’s as a sure possession ballhandler and shooter. Now, he is dunking with one-hand and playing with endless confidence. He holds an offer from UNF and should continue to build up his abilities.
Javon BennettJavonBennett5'11" | CGTrinity Prep | 2022StateFL
& Laziz TalipovLazizTalipov6'0" | CGTrinity Prep | 2021StateFL
Scoring is always on Bennett’s mind. The 2022 5-10 guard has serious wheels and a nice jumper to go along with his game. He holds an offer from Stetson and averaged just north of 25.0 PPG as a sophomore. Alongside him is 2021 6-0 guard Laziz TalipovLazizTalipov6'0" | CGTrinity Prep | 2021StateFL
, a gifted ballhandler who is taking the next steps forward after he averaged around 15.0 PPG last season.
Jayden BattleJaydenBattle6'3" | CGFirst Academy | 2021StateFL
First Academy has a nice combo in place. Battle, a 2021 6-3 guard thrives when grinding out possessions at the rack. He averaged 15.6 PPG a season ago. Next to him is 2021 6-2 guard Sean JohnsonSeanJohnson6'2" | CGFirst Academy | 2021StateFL
, who averaged 10.1 PPG as a junior and did more of the same in terms of his finishing ability.
Holland Liverpool & Jaden HuygensJadenHuygens6'0" | SGCornerstone Charter | 2023StateFL
Liverpool and Huygens are a dangerous duo night in and night out when it comes to pure scoring. Liverpool, a 2021 5-11 guard averaged 17.2 PPG last season and had only one game under double digits while Huygens, a 2023 6-0 guard averaged 15.0 PPG last season and had only three games under double digits.

Region 2 – District 5
Emanuel SharpEmanuelSharp6'5" | SGBishop McLaughlin | 2022State#104NationFL
& Dillon MitchellDillonMitchell6'7" | PFBishop McLaughlin | 2022State#235NationFL
Bishop McLaughlin brought in a nice cast which includes Sharp and Mitchell, two nationally known talents. Sharp, a 2022 6-4 guard is a high volume shooter and slasher. He holds offers from UF, Iona, Texas Tech, USF, SMU, Georgia Tech, Rutgers and Xavier. Sharp averaged a cool 31.9 PPG at Blake as a sophomore. Alongside him is Mitchell, a fellow 2022 prospect standing at 6-7 who has offers from SMU, USF, Vanderbilt, UF, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech and Texas A&M. He averaged 12.4 PPG, 9.5 RPG and 4.4 APG last season at Sickles as he continues to be more of an aggressor.
...Three other key transfers are: 2022 6-4 guard Anthony DavisAnthonyDavis6'4" | CGBishop McLaughlin | 2022StateFL
(via Blake), who holds offers from Fairfield, Bryant and James Madison and is a powerful and big-bodied lead guard. 2022 6-8 forward Matthew WebsterMatthewWebster6'4" | PFPasco | 2022StateFL
(via Pasco), who averaged 20.4 PPG last season and is a major inside piece. Lastly, 2022 6-6 guard/forward Joshua WatkinsJoshuaWatkins6'5" | SFBishop McLaughlin | 2022StateFL
(via Brandon), a long and speedy athlete.
Mike TriggMikeTrigg6'6" | SGCarrollwood Day | 2021State#151NationFL
Headed to USC next fall to play football, Trigg, a 2021 athlete is also a fine basketball talent. He had some banner seasons at Seffner Christian the last few years and now closes his high school career out at Carrollwood Day. The 6-5 guard is hard to slow down and always in full control of the ball. 2022 6-6 forward Tony LivingstonTonyLivingston6'6" | CGCarrollwood Day | 2022StateFL
returns to Carrollwood Day after spending his sophomore season at Seffner Christian with Trigg. The high major football talent is also a very talented shooter and finisher on the basketball court. Also, 2023 6-0 guard Tre LockettTreLockett6'0" | PGCarrollwood Day | 2023StateFL
is a gifted shooter for this bunch and 2023 6-1 guard Joel HarrisonJoelHarrison6'0" | CGCarrollwood Day | 2023StateFL
(transfer from Wharton) is a skilled athlete ready to breakout.
CJ HawkinsCJHawkins6'7" | CGBerkeley Prep | 2022StateFL
The step forward was apparent for Hawkins last season as a sophomore. The 2022 6-8 forward earned offers from Western Michigan and IUPUI. He opted to play football here this fall and his body is leaner and stronger from doing so. He is going to really turn heads as a double digit scorer nightly at Berkeley Prep. 2021 brothers Mark MulfingerMarkMulfinger6'4" | CGBerkeley Prep | 2021StateFL
and Matt Mulfinger both stand at 6-2 and play tough two-way basketball. Another player to monitor here is 2023 6-8 forward Keon KeeleyKeonKeeley6'7" | PFBerkeley Prep | 2023StateFL
who is ready to breakout after showing glimpses as a freshman.
Willie JonesWillieJones6'6" | SGSeffner Christian | 2021StateFL
One of the holdovers at Seffner Christian is Jones, a 2021 6-6 guard who can be highly productive when he is locked in. He can shoot it, slash and be an-all around threat on both ends of the floor. This is his team and he should run with that opportunity. 2021 6-0 guard Isaiah Reed is a speedy counterpart who can fly in transition.
Trae MartinTraeMartin6'8" | PFBrooks DeBartolo | 2021StateFL
Starting his basketball career only four years ago, it seems as if Martin is peaking at the right time. The 2021 6-8 big man turned heads this summer and has offers from Barry University and St. Petersburg College under his belt. He has nice awareness and finds good areas down low offensively. Battling some injuries the last two seasons, Brooks DeBartolo will have a playmaking point man running the show in 2023 6-0 guard George KimbleGeorgeKimble6'0" | CGBrooks DeBartolo | 2023StateFL
. He is quick as can be and should boost Martin’s value even further.
Valentino HartValentinoHart6'4" | SFTampa Prep | 2021StateFL
Tampa Prep is always going to be in games, no matter who takes the floor for its side. 2021 6-4 guard/forward Valentino HartValentinoHart6'4" | SFTampa Prep | 2021StateFL
is the No. 1 option for this team and he is a very nice athlete. He averaged nearly 10.0 PPG a season ago and I expect him to ramp up his production this winter. Two other senior contributors are Jakob Stiglich, a 6-3 guard who shoots the ball well and 5-11 guard Pierce BlountPierceBlount6'1" | PGTampa Prep | 2021StateFL
who is a playmaking guard.

Region 2 – District 6
Tristan GrossTristanGross6'4" | CGClearwater Calvary Christian | 2023StateFL
(Clearwater Calvary Christian)
Clearwater Calvary Christian has a really nice mix of young talent in place this season. At the helm is Gross, a 2023 6-4 guard who continues to grow in height and maturity. He is a quick step guard, who defends with smarts and shoots the ball well. With a keen focus and more vocalness, he should thrive after earning an offer from SMU a few weeks ago. 2022 6-3 guard Trevor ParksTrevorParks6'4" | CGClearwater Calvary Christian | 2022StateFL
is the perfect pairing for him as a jump shooter2 and he is a dangerous piece when given time to shoot.
...2020 6-0 guard Griffin BarasaGriffinBarasa6'1" | CGClearwater Calvary Christian | 2021StateFL
is a blazer on the floor who can get up on the rim. He earned an offer from Division III Dean College this week. 2023 6-5 forward Jonathan CaicedoJonathanCaicedo6'5" | SFClearwater Calvary Christian | 2023StateFL
is someone who is just itching to breakout after showing growing confidence a year ago. Last but not least is perhaps the most unknown prospects here in 2023 5-11 guard Dominic SaragumbaDominicSaragumba5'8" | PGClearwater Calvary Christian | 2023StateFL
, a long armed and all-around hustle player.
Trey JohnsonTreyJohnson6'7" | PFClearwater Central Catholic | 2021StateFL
(Clearwater Central Catholic)
Johnson has the looks of a near 20-point scorer every night if he can stay fully healthy and locked in. The 2021 6-7 forward is a talented shooter and when aggressive is very hard to contain defensively. Johnson holds offers from Mount St. Mary’s and FGCU and should earn more attention as the guy at Clearwater Central Catholic.
Mikhail WhyteMikhailWhyte6'3" | PFShorecrest Prep | 2022StateFL
You can’t ignore the success of Whyte from last season at Shorecrest Prep. The 2022 6-2 forward is a big body who averaged 13.4 PPG and 9.5 RPG and looks like an even better bet to top those numbers with ease.
Hayden McCainHaydenMcCain5'11" | CGNorthside Christian | 2023StateFL
& Skyler ScullSkylerScull5'8" | PGNorthside Christian | 2023StateFL
Northside Christian should surprise teams this season with some gifted shooters in place in 2023 duo McCain and Scull. McCain, a 5-11 guard transferred in from St. Pete and should set the tone with his stretch shooting. Scull, a 5-9 guard is a fast paced guard who has a nice jump shot to his game. Another prospect to watch here is 2023 6-8 forward Connor AlevokConnorAlevok6'8" | PFNorthside Christian | 2023StateFL
, who will be counted upon to battle inside.
Tim ReillyTimReilly6'7" | CSt. Pete Catholic | 2021StateFL
(St. Pete Catholic)
Reilly is someone who has come on as of late. At 6-10, the 2021 forward is going to have a chance to put it all together and will be leaned on to grab boards and score down low a ton. A speedy guard to pair with him is 2022 6-1 guard Xzavier BurksXzavierBurks6'0" | CGSt. Pete Catholic | 2022StateFL
, a nice shooter from long range.

Region 2 – District 7
Tyler OdonoghueTylerOdonoghue6'6" | SFOut-of-Door | 2021StateFL
Out in Sarasota, Odonoghue has been a consistent scoring forward. The 2021 6-6 prospect averaged 15.1 PPG at Out-Of-Door last season and will continue to flourish in this system as a senior. Fellow senior, 6-2 guard Ryan KellyRyanKelly5'10" | CGOut-of-Door | 2021StateFL
averaged 12.9 PPG as a junior and did plenty with his shooting touch.
Stravis LutchmanStravisLutchman6'2" | SFBradenton Christian | 2021StateFL
Bradenton Christian has quietly been one of the hardest working lower class squads. The small school has a keeper in Lutchman, a 2021 6-2 guard/forward who averaged 12.1 PPG last season. He will be the focal point once again.

& Alan CedenoAlanCedeno5'10" | CGFort Myers Canterbury | 2021StateFL
(Fort Myers Canterbury)
There aren’t many better pure shooters than Cedeno in the state of Florida. The 2021 6-0 guard plays a no-nonsense style of basketball. He rarely gets rattled and can pass with the best of them. He will set the tone for this Fort Myers Canterbury bunch all season long. He holds an offer from Division III Stevenson. 2021 6-7 forward Abedola AdebayoAbedolaAdebayo6'8" | SFFort Myers Canterbury | 2021StateFL
is a steal for his next stop in the college ranks Mount St. Mary’s. He is just hitting his full capability as an attacking wing and dangerous shot blocker.
...2021 6-4 guard Landon HowardLandonHoward6'3" | CGCanterbury | 2021StateFL
(transfer from Fort Myers) is a confident third weapon with his jumper. 2024 6-3 guard Justin HeinrichsJustinHeinrichs6'1" | SGFort Myers Canterbury | 2024FL
is a freshman to watch with his legitimate 3-ball.
Ryker VanceRykerVance6'6" | PFCommunity School of Naples | 2021StateFL
& Lovenson XavierLovensonXavier6'2" | CGCommunity School | 2021StateFL
(Naples Community School)
Naples Community School made an improbable run to the state tournament this past season and you have to credit Vance and Xavier for carrying the brunt of the load. Vance is a highly skilled 2021 6-6 forward who can really hurt teams with his smooth finishes and shot blocking ability on the other end. Xavier is a strong and speedy guard who can shoot it and drive with determination.
Noah CutlerNoahCutler5'7" | PGGateway Charter | 2024FL
& Blake MaddoxBlakeMaddox6'3" | SFGateway Charter | 2024FL
It is all about getting better and Gateway Charter has a 2024 duo that will make things happen this season in Cutler and Maddox. Cutler, a 5-7 gamer is a crafty ballhandler who will make everyone around him more involved. Maddox, a 6-3 forward has all the tools to be successful with his pure athleticism as long as he sticks to the progressions.
