5-star CG Jalen Warley commits; FSU adds to No. 1 recruiting class in 2021

Jalen Warley is headed to Tallahassee.

Florida State already had the No. 2021 recruiting class in the county; however, Leonard Hamilton’s program added another substantial commitment with Warley.

A combo guard from Norristown (Pa.), the 5-star Warley rates as the No. 22 overall prospect in the class and the No. 2 combo guard. Warley’s recruitment was led by hall of fame assistant coach Stan Jones; Florida State beat out Virginia, Memphis, Oregon, Michigan and Miami.

For a good chunk of time, Virginia was considered the favorite to land Warley. The 6-foot-4, 175-pound Warley instead opted to play for another ACC basketball power.

Warley becomes the fifth commit in Florida State’s 2021 class; two weeks ago, Florida State landed commitments from 7-foot-1 4-star center John Butler and 7-foot-3 JUCO center Naheem McLeod, initially a part of FSU’s 2019 class.

Earlier in July, 5-star 2021 Matthew Cleveland also pledged to FSU — a major get for the program. All four of these guys join Bryce McGowens, a 4-star 2021 wing that committed to FSU over Clemson in February.

Warley is from the same town and plays for the same prep program (Westtown School) as former Duke one-and-done star and current Atlanta Hawk Cam Reddish.
