2023 Names To Remember (Part 1)

With the start of the 2022-23 regular season just over a month away in the state of Florida, it is time to look at underrated prospects in different classes.

Beginning with the senior class, 2023, this is Part 1 of players that deserve more attention from college programs.

2023 6-7 F Andrew Sineway – St. Andrew’s

One of the most underrated lengthy prospects in the state, Andrew Sineway averaged just over 14 PPG and 5.0 RPG for an 18-8 St. Andrew’s squad. He is fundamentally sound as a shot blocker, rebounder and his offensive game has taken the next step. Sineway finishes nicely around the rim and can hit from deep when asked as he shot 42 percent a season ago from 3-point land. His two offers are from NAIA St. Thomas and Division III US Merchant Marine right now. There will be more to come no doubt for Sineway.

2023 6-3 G KJ Robinson – Wekiva

It was a big summer for KJ Robinson. He earned offers from St. Bonaventure, Cal Poly, Hofstra, Northern Kentucky, Mount St. Mary’s, LaSalle and Murray State in July with SOH Elite. Transferring to Wekiva from Apopka, he brings a different aspect to his new group. Robinson is a locked-in defender, a very skilled ballhandler and a rock-solid jump shooter. He has put in the work and it is on full display. Robinson still has plenty of upside.

2023 6-1 G Ty Owens – Centennial

Centennial had a highly successful season in 2021-22 as the Eagles went 22-5 and Ty Owens was at the forefront of the impressive play. He averaged almost 18 PPG and knocked down 45 percent of his 3-point attempts. With only three games under double digits, Owens continued to shine as a shooter and playmaker who can get to the cup with his strength and crafty ballhandling down in Port St. Lucie. Somehow Division III Greensboro College is his only offer. That will definitely change here shortly.

2023 6-4 G/F Dominick Scott – Riverside

A jack of all trades kind of talent, Dominick Scott has endless burst, length and very good instincts. He took a major step forward as a junior, averaging nearly 13.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG and just over 2.0 BPG. Scott plays alongside an athletic group and he fits the bill as a floor pusher and an inside slasher/passer. If he can continue to improve his jumper, he will certainly open more eyes to college programs.

2023 5-9 G Anthony Floyd – Hallandale

One of the most polished ballhandlers for the last few years, Anthony Floyd has always flashed burst and high IQ play out of the backcourt. He’s running the show at Hallandale and that bodes well for the Chargers, who went 18-10 last season. Floyd gets inside early and often and his ability to push the pace in transition is a joy to watch. College programs that need a seasoned point man need to look at him further.
