FaZe Clan is bolstering its already-powerful Fortnite roster with another young player. Thirteen-year-old pro H1ghsky1 confirmed the move on his Twitter, and FaZe Clan welcomed him via their own account as well.

The move comes after TSM Fortnite pro Ali “Myth” Kabbani leaked the acquisition on stream. He asked H1ghsky1 about the move repeatedly, while the newest FaZe player could say nothing to his questions. After a few moments, the Fortnite star realized his mistake and backtracked frantically.

FaZe Clan has a history of cultivating premier esports talent, especially in the Fortnite scene. They are already home to some of the best players in the game, including Turner “Tfue” Tenney and Dennis “Cloak” Lepore.

Tfue and Cloak have both won multiple tournaments during their careers and have a huge following on their Twitch streams. This move should help the young player gain a ton of traction and exposure from the esports world to further his career.

200K on Twitch

Although young, H1ghsky’s signage to FaZe comes as little surprise, as he was already a partnered streamer on Twitch with over 200,000 followers on the platform due to his Fortnite prowess.

H1ghsky isn’t the only youngster that the org has taken into their fold, by far; FaZe likewise brought 15-year-old Fortnite player “Sway” on board a few days prior, likely thanks to his gaming skills and impressive following on social media.
