Another five-star for Florida State Seminoles basketball.
Jalen Warley is a 6’4 175 pound combo guard from Norristown, PA.
The Class of 2021 prospect attends Westown School and has a 99 rating (5-star) from the 247 Sports Composite List. Exploding onto the recruiting scene last season, the collective sites consider him the 23rd best player in America (3rd best CG and best player in Pennsylvania).
Long thought to be a UVA lean, the silky smooth and highly skilled guard committed to Leonard Hamilton and the Seminoles over Michigan, Memphis, Miami, Oregon, and the aforementioned Cavaliers. Florida State offered the talented prospect in late May and Associate Head Coach Stan Jones led the recruitment effort.
In early June, he dropped his top 10 which included Florida State, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami (FL), Michigan, Memphis, Ohio State, Oregon, and Virginia:

With Warley deciding to play his college ball in Tallahassee, it further bolsters an FSU 2021 recruiting class that was already tops in the nation. The elite combo guard joins Bryce McGowens, Naheem McLeod, Matthew Cleveland, and John Butler to form a five-man class that provides a tantalizing mix of length, shooting, slashing, shot-blocking, playmaking, and basketball IQ.
Be on the look out for a full breakdown of Warley’s skill set in the coming days, and in the meantime you can check out what last week’s blue-chip recruit, John Butler, brings to the table.
