You know what I love about the 3 that are committed? They just announced. Didn’t mess around with announcing finalists. Also listened to a Braun interview where she said “With respect for the other coaches recruiting me, I wanted to let them know as well”. That’s very mature to do in this era of making a decision long and drawn out.

Ok question? Amber Scalia? I saw she hit 6 3s the other night. Is she good enough to play at a D1 level?

Amber is a really nice scorer. When you watch her play, she actually looks like Sara out there with quick movements, quick trigger on 3s and strong drives to the basket. However, where is Sara is about 5'11-6'0 range, Amber is about 5'7, maybe 5'8 so would be an undersized 2-guard. She is projected as a low mid major, or high D2 level player at this time.

They might have 1 2022 scholarship left, not sure.. 2022 class is getting to big, we'll be stuck in we're young mode forever. Might be saving it for Amaya Battle, but getting the feeling she is looking elsewhere.
I think next year they need to look at that transfer portal or grad player for the front line.
