FSU basketball is looking to add more top talent to its 2021 recruiting class. One blue-chip player is high on the Noles.
FSU basketball is coming off its first regular-season ACC Conference title with some solid pieces returning to have a strong team in the coming season.
They also have some of the top freshmen in the country joining the team this fall and are in pursuit of more top players for its 2021 recruiting class.
One player the Noles have been high on is four-star shooting guard James White from Conyers, Georgia.
For those keeping tabs, that the same high school as FSU wide receiver Jordan Young who joined the Noles football program in 2018.
White announced the Noles made his top 12 list of schools via his Twitter account Sunday evening:
Thank you to all the schools that have been recruiting me this far , I appreciate the process & the oppurtunity that every program gave me. This was a very hard decision to make but as of now I will be focusing on these 12 schools. ❤️ all glory to GOD ! #blessed pic.twitter.com/XlzvCav6pW

White checks in as the No. 98 player overall, No. 22 shooting guard, and the No. 6 player overall in the state of Georgia. He holds offers from the likes of FSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona State, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Xavier, Ole Miss, and other smaller schools.
The Noles were among the first Power Five programs to offer White who already has a commitment from four-star shooting guard Bryce McGowens. However, the Noles will lose seniors M.J. Walker and Rayquan Evans after the upcoming season.
Leonard Hamilton and staff have done an excellent job with their guards over the past few years. The Noles have had Terrance Mann and Malik Beasley drafted in the past couple of years and will have a couple taken in the upcoming NBA Draft later this year in Devin Vassell and Trent Forrest.
The Noles have the No. 23 ranked recruiting class overall with the lone commitment from McGowens. White will likley try to schedule visits once the pandemic gets under control.
