While talent was certainly all over the gym in Winter Haven, Florida 2024 was a class that stood out with several players showing a lot of upside. These 5 players had me take notice of their overall gameplay and have been added to our “players to watch” radar. We look forward to seeing what impact they will make this upcoming High School season!
Chris Arias Chris Arias 6'6" | SG Providence | 2024 State #211 Nation FL 6’5 Wing – Providence School – Chris knows how to attack the basket and has a good feel around the paint. Chris plays a solid overall game and displays above average skills on both sides of the court. His athleticism was impressive and he clearly was one of the best players on the court during his showcase games. He will be a stock riser for sure this upcoming season.
6’1 G – Lake Worth Christian School – I have had the pleasure of seeing Max play for several years now and his overall game continues to improve. Max has a consistent outside shot and knows how to make his presence felt when he is in the game. Max hustles on every possession and is an above average defender. Max is a very polished player with upside in the 2024 class.
Julian Clarke Julian Clarke 6'0" | SG Lake Highland Prep | 2024 State FL 6’0 G- Lakeland Prep – Julian is an elite playmaker and a strong finisher at the basket. Like Max above I have seen Julian play over the years and he is always having fun while knowing how to make things happen on the court. He is an exciting player to watch with strong ball handling skills and above average basketball IQ. He will be a name to keep an eye on in this class as I believe he will continue to separate himself from his peer group.
Reggie Workman Reggie Workman 5'8" | PG Forrest Hill | 2024 FL 5’8 G – Forest Hill – Reggie was making nice plays throughout the showcase and is a solid guard. He displays a nice outside shot and is tough as nails on defense. He has a quick first step and moves well without the ball. He gives you everything he has when on the floor and is locked in on the defensive end. Reggie is a pleasure to watch and I am confident he will continue to grow into his own amongst the top guards in his area.
Ramez Zayed Ramez Zayed 6'1" | PG Ft. Lauderdale | 2024 FL 6’1 G – Monarch – Ramez was very impressive he controls the offense when the ball is in his hand and if you need a bucket he is your guy. A consistent scorer who also displayed nice combo moves to blow by his defender and get to the basket. Seemed to have a nice outside shot and made some very nice passes to lead to easy baskets. Solid overall playmaking ability and played great on defense.
