The Florida State men’s basketball team has landed yet another five-star prospect in guard Jalen Warley, adding to what already is considered the No. 1 class in 2021.
“I’m really excited about my fellow class members. I think we’re going to be really successful,” Warley announced his decision on CBS Sports HQ.
Just how successful? Said Warley: “Be prepared for a national championship.”
The 6-foot-4 and 175-pound Warley is the latest prospect to commit to FSU in what has been an impressive recruiting run for the Seminoles. The Seminoles also have commitments from five-star guard Matt Cleveland, four-star guard Bryce McGowens, four-star forward-center John Butler Jr. and junior-college center Naheem McLeod.
FSU has landed a number of five-star prospects in recent years, including Patrick Williams (2019 class) and Scottie Barnes (2020 class). Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon (2015) and Jonathan Isaac (2016) were also five-star prospects.
Warley said he has built a strong relationship with FSU coach Leonard Hamilton during the pandemic, talking often by phone or Zoom. “I think he’s a really special person and a genuine guy,” Warley said.
