WBB Recruiting
Rarely see tweets from WBB prospects about offers, but saw this week that Peoria IL '17 PG Jailynn Lawson tweeted that she received an offer from UT. Said it was her 4th offer.

Some impressive Highlights:

Quote:Lawson starting at point guard would be a pleasure for any coach. She’s a bona fide Division I prospect with a scholarship offer from Bradley and interest from Arkansas, Seton Hall, Clemson and Indiana.

RE: WBB Recruiting
UT graduates 2 next year, and they are both bigs. Also, we already had 2 verbals for '17 guards in Copeland and Washington-Polk. Wonder if those two are still solid.

According to her twitter and Prospect Nation, '17 Georgia PG Tatyana Davis has verballed to UT. Can't find too much info, but here's a short highlight reel:

RE: WBB Recruiting
Still a little confused on the prospects. That's 3 guards who have verballed for '17, when the team is graduating 2 bigs.

Yeah, Seems like we will be able to field at least 6. I wonder if Copeland and Polk-Washington are still solid verbals.

Anyone with any info?

Maybe Copeland is odd women out. To me she hasn't progressed much since her freshmen year.

RE: WBB Recruiting
Another '17 verbal on twitter. Another guard. Zaria Wright from Concord, NC. Her highlights from hudl would seen to indicate she is a scorer. Plays for a accomplish HS team. I think I saw they were runner up state champs her sophomore year? Not sure about last year. Averaged 26 points, 6 boards and 4 assists as a JR. Season high 45 points. Has a recruiting rating at ESPN of 90, and listed as 3.5 stars on prospect nation, although I don't know that those really mean anything for HS girls with the lack of consistent info that exists. Had an offer from EMU, and prospect nation indicated she had previously verballed to them, but don't know if that's true. Not sure if there were other offers.

So, we have 4 verbals (all guards) now for 3 available slots. So, clearly at least one of the early verbals would seem to be out of the picture now.

Highlights:

Sadly, "verbal" commitments seem to mean less as each year passes. Maybe this is less of an issue (admirably) for female athletes. On paper these past few verbals certainly look like solid players, so my guess is we're at the "go after the best players we think we have a 50/50 shot of actually signing" phase, knowing that the chances all of these ladies actually do sign is slim. Still wish we were able to land another true post player to help Kaayla out after Sophie graduates.

RE: WBB Recruiting
Instead of filling team needs it seems like we throw out a bunch of offers and whoever verbals first wins. I understand we don't have the luxury of being very selective but their has to be a better way of finding players that fit into your team rather than just grabbing whoever says yes.

Based on the high school statistics and reviews from a recruiting site mentioned earlier, I'm surprised that you come to the conclusion that that we're "grabbing whoever says yes."

Speed kills and it has killed us. We have a couple bigs and Cullop seems to be loading up on speed to compete with the EMUs of the world.

Lexi Lance, a 6-0 wing from Wordsworth High has also given a verbal for the 2018 class.

Last season Lance was All-Ohio Honorable mention on a team that was loaded with talent and won the Division-I State Championship.
