2022 four-star Corey Floyd Jr. is down to seven schools

Rutgers: Last season, the Scarlet Knights had the 3rd best record in the Big Ten. This is a program that is on the rise and recently landed a commitment from four-star guard Jaden Jones, not to mention top-50 big man Clifford Omoruyi in the 2020 class. Being the hometown team, they should like their chances with Floyd.

“They’re the hometown school right in my backyard and are heading in the right direction with the program.”

Providence: Floyd’s father, Corey Floyd Sr., played at Providence in the 90’s which should give the Friars a leg up on the competition. On the court, the Friars were 12-6 in conference play last season and should be in the mix again this year.

“It would be amazing to bring the Floyd name back to Providence and show out.”

Miami: Miami hasn’t been competitive in a number of years; Floyd has a chance to change that. Head coach Jim Larrinaga has done a great job recruiting as of late, Floyd could be another indication of that.

“Coach Larrinaga reaches out to my father and I every day.”

Wake Forest: Not a flashy school but Wake Forest produces great guards. They have a system that works; here Floyd can focus on developing for the pros.

“Under the radar ACC school that develops players into pros, while playing in one of the top conferences.”

Florida: Florida has had a lot of great guards and done an excellent job recruiting. Floyd would be a great addition for Mike White.

“Guard heavy school that looks for their guards to score and have a heavy impact on their team.”

UCONN: When you think UConn basketball, you think Kemba Walker. Right now, they’re a rising program in the Big East that Floyd could come in and make an instant impact for.

“Great overall staff, they’re recruiting me to be an instant impact player from day one and score the ball.”

Auburn: Coach Pearl has done an excellent job with guards. Floyd will have an opportunity to compete right away.

“Coach Bowman reaches out every day and we have a great relationship.”
