A healthy Bella Fontleroy is a dangerous weapon on the floor. Sandwiched in between official visits to Arizona and Texas Tech, she made time to come and train.  The 6-2 swing player from Springfield, Missouri, is back at 100 percent and the joy paired with her talent leads to plays being made.

Bailey Maupin of Gruver, Texas, has her ticket punched, committed to Texas Tech, but if you think she’ll take her foot off the gas, you’re wrong.  Her bounce, length and passion for competing are always on.

Cameron Rust of South Kingstown, Rhode Island, is a matchup nightmare.  The 6-2 forward from the 2024 class is starting to add the long range jumper that will frustrate defenders as she’s too strong and skilled off the bounce to play close.

Malia Samuels of Burien, Washington, has a nickname as the pitbull.  But when she goes in to attack she really puts help defenders in a bad spot because she’s got the vision and smarts to make the read and play in front of her.

Chloe Kitts of Oveido, Florida, has a jumper now.  That’s scary as she’s almost impossible to stop from getting to the rim where her length and bounce make the bucket hard to stop.

Duke

Ashlon Jackson of China, Texas, is one of the most versatile players in the class. And with the emphasis of Friday Night Lights, her swiss army knife skill set stood out the more layers added and that should make Duke fans excited.

Madison Heiss (Dallas, Texas), Highland Park -- 2023

Heiss was on point in our first viewing of her game. She is a guard with size and skill who we fully expect to be in the mix with our staff over the next 12 months. Keep a close eye on her development.

Fresh off of a visit to Northwestern, Swanson has an elite size that should allow her to serve as a consistent frontcourt threat in due time. As her outside shooting range continues to emerge so will her productivity.

Miyah Verse (Flagstaff, Arizona), AZ Elite -- 2023

Verse brought a true versatility to the group. She has the size and strength to be a true presence at the forward spot. In this setting, Verse showed that she won’t shy away from trying to improve her outside game either.

Sophia Vital

After visiting SMU earlier in the day with her Bay State Jaguars coach Laurie Bollin, Vital came ready to get some work in. Her deceptive speed keeps opposing defenders guessing. She is a capable ballhandler who goes to another level when she talks the game.

Williams has been busy this offseason. Moving to San Diego to play with Cal Swish EYBL and La Jolla Country Day has kept Williams on the go. When she’s been at her new home, a revamped jumper has been the focal point of her growth. The results are paying off.
