What South Florida prospects could lead the area in scoring? There are plenty of talented players that can put the ball in the basket at will. I think certain players might surprise after a good scoring group left in the Class of 2021.

Here are some quick picks…

Jamai Hager-Tejada Jamai Hager-Tejada 5'10" | CG Mater Lakes | 2023 State FL Miami Northwestern

2023 Jamai Hager-Tejada Jamai Hager-Tejada 5'10" | CG Mater Lakes | 2023 State FL is an aggressive player that can score in hurry.  The 5-foot-10 guard is a three-level scorer that should have no problem putting up 20+ points per game. With Mater Lakes Academy, I saw him score 35 points against McArthur. Hager-Tejada has the capability of going on a quarter run where he simply dominates. Some players just have that mindset, and Hager-Tejada is one of them.

Nate Sasser Nate Sasser 6'6" | SG Suncoast | 2023 State #162 Nation FL Suncoast

Based on his talent level, I’m expecting a big season from 2023 Nate Sasser Nate Sasser 6'6" | SG Suncoast | 2023 State #162 Nation FL . The 6-foot-6 small forward has superior athleticism at his position and on the court overall. Sasser can score in the halfcourt and should be damaging in transition. It also helps he’s playing with a talented point guard in 2024 Stone Bureau. They should rack up plays together.

Jamai Hager-Tejada Jamai Hager-Tejada 5'10" | CG Mater Lakes | 2023 State FL – Miami Northwestern 2023 Jamai Hager-Tejada Jamai Hager-Tejada 5'10" | CG Mater Lakes | 2023 State FL is an aggressive player that can score in hurry.  The 5-foot-10 guard is a three-level scorer that should have no problem putting up 20+ points per game.

Nate Sasser Nate Sasser 6'6" | SG Suncoast | 2023 State #162 Nation FL – Suncoast Based on his talent level, I’m expecting a big season from 2023 Nate Sasser Nate Sasser 6'6" | SG Suncoast | 2023 State #162 Nation FL .

It also helps he’s playing with a talented point guard in 2024 Stone Bureau. They should rack up plays together. Noah Kattan Noah Kattan 6'3" | CG Cypress Bay | 2022 State FL – Cypress Bay The Lightning have some talented players on its roster and 2022 Noah Kattan Noah Kattan 6'3" | CG Cypress Bay | 2022 State FL is one of them. The 6-foot-3 guard has a knack to score off the dribble and can do so in hurry. Kattan has quick release and knocks down 3-pointers with regularity. His high IQ on the court should also be to his advantage. I’m expecting some big games from Kattan. College coaches should definitely look at him over in Weston. Koree Cotton Koree Cotton 6'4" | SF Souhtridge | 2023 State FL – Miami Southridge Cotton is a 6-foot-5 guard with a ton of athleticism and shooting ability. He can score off the dribble and has a good mid-range game.  I believe his size and mentioned athleticism will cause opponents problems. Cotton has been offered by Florida Gulf Coast. I like him to have a great season on a very talented Spartans team. Others to watch: Jimel Lane Jimel Lane 6'7" | PF Mater Academy | 2022 State FL – Miami Palmetto Daniel Zaladon Daniel Zaladon 5'11" | PG Keys Gate | 2022 State FL – Keys Gate Cameron Boozer Cameron Boozer 6'7" | SF Columbus | 2025 FL – Miami Columbus Jasai Miles Jasai Miles 6'5" | CG Miami Country Day | 2023 State #210 Nation FL – Miami Country Day Esteban Lluberes Esteban Lluberes 5'10" | PG Riviera Prep | 2022 State FL – Riviera Prep For any South Florida Prep Hoops news or information…please contact Michael Costeines @Steins_23 on Instagram or follow him on Twitter @Mungertown_Mike23
