    Matthew Cleveland, the 6-foot-6, 189-pound shooting guard from Pace (GA) Academy, is headed to Florida State.

    “I will be committing to Florida State University,” he said in this video.

    Ranked the No. 2 shooting guard in the Class of 2021 per 247Sports.com, Cleveland chose FSU over Michigan, Stanford, Kansas and N.C. State on Tuesday. He told Sports Illustrated Kentucky and North Carolina also had begun to show interest.

    Cleveland averaged 22.3 points on 60 percent shooting, 8.1 rebounds, and 2.9 steals last season.

    He joins point guard Bryce McGowens in Leonard Hamilton’s 2021 recruiting class.
