When it comes to the 2021 class and the underrated talent coming out of it, one name that comes to mind is Florida native and forward Alex Fudge. The 6-foot-7 prospect plays with Team Parsons and had himself quite the summer last year and it dragged onto the high school season where he drew himself a national recruitment.
The dynamic two-way forward finds himself as a national priority and many see him as one of the most polished forwards in the class. One month ago, he said that “Texas A&M, Texas, Georgia, Georgia Tech Wake Forest, VT and Iowa State and USC are amongst the schools on me right now.” Now, that list has expanded, drastically.
Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, Arizona State, have all offered since then with the most recent offer on that list coming from Eric Musselman during a virtual call with Fudge. Amongst the other virtual visits he’s completed: Texas A&M, LSU, Virginia Tech, Iowa State, Iona, others.
He broke down his three most recent virtual visits with Iona, Arkansas, and Iowa State:
Iona: “Coach Pitino made it known that I fit his style of play and his system. He told me he wants to develop me and help me get to the next level.“
Iowa State: “Iowa state was one of the first high majors to offer, Coach Prohm made it known that they wanted me and Iowa State is the best place to be.”
Arkansas: “Arkansas touched on how they want me and how there development and experience between the coaches is tremendous.”
Fudge also has continued to land new interest as schools are now getting involved at a weekly pace. Amongst those new interests include Miami, Stanford, Florida State, Dayton, and Notre Dame.
As far as a timetable, he said he will cut his list down in the next 2-3 months.
