The Florida State men's basketball team has bolstered its 2021 recruiting class with the addition of Kentucky transfer Cam'Ron Fletcher.

Fletcher announced the transfer on his social media pages Friday afternoon with the accompanying hashtag of #NewBlood after he entered the transfer portal in March.

Fletcher will enroll at FSU after just one season at Kentucky. He was a four-star small forward in the 2020 class, the No. 71 overall recruit and No. 15 small forward in the class.

Fletcher, a 6-foot-6, 215-pound wing, made a strong debut at UK, scoring nine points and adding five rebounds in his first game against Morehead State. But his playing time diminished from there as he appeared in just nine games and made just one start in his lone seasons with the Wildcats. 

Kentucky's Cam'Ron Fletcher makes a shot against Morehead State. 

He averaged 1.7 points and 1.7 rebounds per game and made 53.8% of his field goals in his sparse playing time last season.

He was briefly suspended from the team last December after he had an outburst on the UK bench, which he quickly apologized for on Twitter.

Upon entering the portal, Fletcher received a great deal of interest from an impressive list of schools including LSU, USC and Washington before the St. Louis native settled on the Seminoles.

Fletcher is the second high-impact transfer FSU will add as part of its 2021 class along with Houston guard Caleb Mills.

Additionally, FSU's 2021 high-school recruiting class ranks as the fifth-best in the country with five-star forward Matthew Cleveland, four-star guard Jalen Warley, four-star center John Butler and three-star junior college center Naheem McLeod.

All of these additions should help supplement an FSU roster that will have to replace Scottie Barnes, RaiQuan Gray, Balsa Koprivica and likely M.J. Walker.
