Florida State lands commitment from Jeremiah Bembry

One day after completing an official visit to Florida State, 2022 point guard prospect Jeremiah Bembry decided he’d seen enough to shut things down, committing to Leonard Hamilton’s Seminoles. A true student-athlete, Bembry selected FSU over offers from the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, LSU Tigers, Ole Miss Rebels, and Seton Hall Pirates, as well as several Ivy League programs.

Bembry is a lefty who utilizes his lengthy, 6’6 frame to his advantage on offense and defense. Offensively he flashes the ability to score at all three levels, although he currently appears to be at his best attacking downhill. He’s capable of finishing with both hands around the rim. More of a combo-guard when he first starting receiving high-major interest in 2020, Bembry is showing emerging signs as a playmaker, which makes sense given his strong hoops IQ.

Defensively, his length and high-motor allows him to disrupt passing lanes and execute chase-down blocks in transition. He’s also added good muscle to his frame over the last 12 months, which will be key in FSU’s defensive system that relies on defending multiple positions.

Bembry, who currently plays at Executive Education Academy in Allentown, PA isn’t currently ranked by 247 Sports or Rivals. Charlton “CY” Young, a noted eye for under-the-radar talent, led FSU’s recruitment with support from Stan Jones.

This is FSU’s fourth commitment for the 2022 class, as Bembry joins three-star forward De’Ante Green, four-star big man Cameron Corhen, and sharp-shooter Tom House in a class that could ultimately reach 5 or 6 players. None of the four commitments are shorter than 6’6.

Among the players remaining on the Seminoles’ board is four-star combo guard Chandler Jackson, who was on campus with Bembry this past weekend.
