The future is very bright for South Florida basketball.

What first-year prospects made the biggest impact?

It’s not always easy to breakout onto the varsity level, but the following players did just that. These individuals also had to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic affecting their season. Credit to every player dealing with both tasks on and off the court. 

Let's dive into the selections...

Marcus Allen Marcus Allen 6'4" | SF West Orange | 2021 State FL - Miami Norland

A no-brainer selection here. The 6-foot-6 Allen averaged 12.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game on 50 percent shooting from the field. He is an electrifying wing with sky-high potential. Allen scored 15 or more points in 12 games and had five double-doubles. The freshman phenom helped the Vikings to a 19-9 record and a spot in the 5A regional final. He has been offered by Florida State

Christian Reid Christian Reid 6'4" | SF SLAM Miami | 2024 State FL - SLAM

Another selection that I comfortably made. The 6-foot-4 Reid averaged 15.4 points and 8.8 rebounds per game on 58 percent shooting from the field. Moreover, Reid only had three games where he shot below 45 percent. He is a fantastic rebounding guard at a young age. Reid recorded nine games with 10 or more boards.
