2025 Names To Remember

The 2022-23 regular season is in full force in the state of Florida, so it is time to look at underrated prospects in different classes.

Moving onto the sophomore class, 2025, here are some names to remember.

2025 6-4 G Alexander Lloyd – Westminster

One of the most versatile players in the sophomore class, Alexander Lloyd is emerging quickly. At 6-foot-4, he is lightning quick, has a reliable jumper and can get by defenders with his playmaking ability. On a youthful and skilled Westminster Academy squad, you won’t find many better 2025 prospects out there. Lloyd can play the 1 through 4 and isn’t afraid of competition. He dropped 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting in a win over The Villages on Monday at the City of Palms Classic. Offers will continue to pour in for Lloyd this season and spring ahead.

Offer List: FSU, Miami, Chicago State, FGCU, IUPUI

2025 6-4 G Dante Allen – Riviera Prep

A brute at 6-foot-4, 210 lbs., Dante Allen has been fantastic so far this season. The 2025 prospect has averaged 27.1 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 3.5 SPG and 3.0 APG for a talented Riviera Prep squad. He’s yet to net under 20 points in a game and he has shot 65 percent from the field and 51 percent from deep. Allen dropped a season-best 39 points in a win over a very good Belen Jesuit team earlier this month as he shot 6-of-7 from long range. I expect more offers to come for him if he keeps this productivity up.

Offer List: Michigan, Villanova, FGCU, Miami and Memphis

2025 6-7 G Shon Abaev – Ft. Lauderdale Calvary Christian

Transferring in from Miami Country Day, Shon Abaev has fit right in for Ft. Lauderdale Calvary Christian. The newly independent program is playing the top teams around the country. Abaev has averaged just over 12.0 PPG alongside two of the most talented 2023 guards in Memphis commit Carl Cheranfant and Jaylen Curry. With clear upside as a shooter and creator more offers will come in short time with his style of play.

Offer List: SMU, FGCU, NJIT and St. John’s.

2025 6-6 G Keron Jackson – Ed White

It has been a nice start to the new season for Keron Jackson. The 2025 6-foot-6 guard is a dynamic athlete who is averaging just around 12.0 PPG. He is a core ballhandler for Ed White and with his combination of burst and length, he is hard to slow down at the point of attack. His long-range jumper is coming along as well. Jackson is a sophomore prospect on the rise.

Offer List: Jacksonville

2025 6-4 G Romari Robinson – Miami

Playing on a team with only four seniors, Romari Robinson has found himself in a major role for a deep Miami High squad. The 6-foot-4 guard is really good in transition at getting the ball up the floor to teammates and finishing as well as blocking shots and creating turnovers on the other end. Robinson shoots the ball with purpose. I like his chances to develop into a legitimate prospect at the next level.
