Breaking: Florida State Completes Sudden Blockbuster Deals After 2-Sport Star Made a Private Trade Decision…

FSU Basketball Secures Commitment from South Florida Two-Sport Star Dwayne Wimbley Jr.

Dwayne Wimbley Jr., a standout athlete from Fort Lauderdale’s St. Thomas Aquinas, has committed to Florida State University (FSU) for basketball. The two-sport star made his decision privately over the weekend and announced it publicly on his birthday, Monday.

Wimbley explained that his commitment was solidified during a visit to FSU’s team camp. He mentioned that he felt a sense of family with the coaching staff, particularly with Coach Ham and Coach Stan Jones, who coached his father at Miami. Wimbley’s sister is also currently attending FSU, further reinforcing his connection to the school.

Coach Leonard Hamilton was thrilled with Wimbley’s decision, seeing him as a perfect fit for the team’s versatile playstyle. Standing at 6-foot-6, Wimbley can guard multiple positions and is known for his defensive prowess and hard work on the court.

In addition to his basketball talent, Wimbley is also a notable football player. He recently transferred from Westminster Academy to St. Thomas Aquinas and plays as a wide receiver/tight end and defensive end on the football field. Last season at Westminster Academy, he averaged 14.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game in basketball.

Though not yet ranked by, Wimbley Jr. becomes FSU’s second commitment for the 2025 class, joining four-star forward Alier Maluk from Long Island Lutheran, who committed in October 2023. Maluk may potentially reclassify to join FSU this coming season, though this has not been confirmed.
