The 2022-2023 Florida High School Basketball season has concluded. Prep Hoops Florida is taking a deeper dive at the standouts from each class year, starting with freshman and ending with seniors. If you have a player who deserves to be recognized, please send @RossVDG14 a direct message on Twitter.
– 6’9 Forward (North Tampa Christian Academy)- A 6’9 forward who brought size and athleticism every single night and is also a three-tool player who can score, rebound and block shots. This season he also expanded his range to become a threat from the perimeter and his recruitment is starting to take notice as well. He already holds offers from NJIT and UCF.
– 6’8 Forward (Westminster Academy)- The 6’8 forward has all the tools to be a triple threat whether it’s his passing, rebounding or scoring he can do it all. His ability to play multiple positions also took a big step forward this season. He averaged 14.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game this season. Look for his recruitment to heat up the next three years, as he’s already receiving offers from Creighton and IUPUI.
– 6’1 Guard (Riviera Prep)- The 6’1 guard played a mature game beyond his years, as he is becoming a high caliber playmaker. He shot 44 percent from the field this season. Fuentes played a big role in helping his team win their first state championship in school history earlier this month.
– 6’7 Guard (Holy Trinity Episcopal)- The 6-7 wing brought a ton of size and length to his game this season, as he was a double-double threat on any given night. Gaskin averaged 17.9 points and 9.6 rebounds per game this season and is still developing. Look for his game to expand as he has been working on a consistent jump shot. In limited attempts, he shot 51 percent from beyond the arc this season as well.
– 6’6 Guard (Canterbury School of Fort Myers)- The 6-6 guard has a promising future as he is continuing to get stronger, could become a force on the interior the next three years. His best game of the season was where he scored a season-high 24 points on 8-of-10 shooting from the field back on December 29 against Holy Trinity Episcopal. He averaged 11.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per game this season.
Jojo Philon- 6’7 Guard (Blake)- His length and ability to score from anywhere in the half court tells you who this kid is. He can rebound well for a guard, handle the ball and is an accurate passer. He averaged 11.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game this season. He currently holds an offer from South Florida.
.- 6’5 Guard (Bell Creek Academy)- The future looks extremely bright for the 6-5 guard who is coming off a season, where he averaged 17.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. His toughness and ability to score in all three levels defines that he is a proven winner. However, he did miss six games this season due to an ankle injury. On the defensive side, he was able to guard multiple positions and play different roles as the season progressed. He will be one of our top five prospects to watch in the 2026 class in the years to come.
.- 6’3 Guard (Windermere Prep)- The son of former NBA standout Brandon Bass has huge upside, as his freshman season comes to an end. He averaged 17.3 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, helping lead his team to a state runner-up. Look for his recruitment to start heating up as he gears into the spring and summer. He will be one of the top two-way players to watch as he displays more confidence.
