Fudge, Carroll, Minott prime for national blow-up

These three players from the state of Florida were on our short list of players who were poised for a big blow up this spring at a national level. As we move forward in the calendar year, we wanted to spotlight the guys who are prime prospects in the Sunshine State. Meet today's terrific trio.

The budding superstar was trending in the right direction as the high school season ended and the travel season came to a close in 2020. Fudge posted 16 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks a game for his team during his junior season. Fudge now stands 6-foot-8 and he uses his length to his advantage at all spots on the floor. He has the tools to be a no-brainer top recruit for a number of high-major programs. Talk to him for 10 minutes and you’ll learn he’s just different. Mature, intelligent, engaging and hungry to be great, Fudge has a lot of the intangibles that players above him in the national rankings don’t have. He’s cracked top 100 lists, which we weren’t surprised to see coming, but we also wouldn’t be surprised to see him continue to surge moving forward over the next 12 months.

Carroll is coming off a stellar junior year at Charlotte HS, where he posted 24.4 points and 9.6 rebounds a game as a junior. Carroll is ranked No. 69 nationally by 247 Sports but has only been offered a scholarship by one high-major program - South Florida. Florida Gulf Coast, Florida Atlantic and Santa Clara have also offered. He has interest from the likes of East Carolina, Iona, Iowa State, Marshall, Murray State, Ole Miss, Texas, Virginia Tech and Xavier. Carroll has a versatile game that translates well to the next level. He’s a plug and play kind of guy because of his versatility. Carroll is the perfect modern day forward, showing a skill set similar to former Duke forward Ryan Kelly.

We featured him earlier this year and wrote that he’s the guy who will be on his way up the national rankings and conversation. He has all of the tools of a guy who will make the jump upward. Minott finished the season as a state champ, helping his Saint Andrew's team claim the title. He finished his junior season posting 17.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Few players in the Southeast were trending upward like he was. Minott has cracked the top 100 national rankings on Rivals but is not ranked nationally by 247 Sports or even in their Florida 2021 rankings. We think Minott has top 50 national potential and one of the most promising young players in the class of 2021.
