The sophomore (2023) class in South Florida is very deep. The group is particularly strong in Broward and Miami-Dade County. I think you can make a strong case for a dozen players making this list below.

From a competition standpoint, it should make for an interesting few years. Players will likely cross paths and compete in some of the area’s biggest games.

Let’s look into the list...

Jaylen Carey Jaylen Carey 6'8" | PF Westminster Academy | 2023 State #105 Nation FL - Westminster Academy

Carey is on the fast track to being the best player in South Florida. I defiantly think this will be the case by the time he is a senior. He is just too strong in the post and his mobility continues to improve. The ladder has allowed him to expand his game beyond the paint. How many 235-pound kids are connecting on 3-pointers from the top of the key? I also believe his bone crushing strength will be a problem late in games. Carey will wear you down and finish near the rim at a high rate. He looks to be the man in the frontcourt now with the transfer of Ben Midddlebrooks to Calvary Christian Academy.
