Gondrezick Bolsters Michigan Class

Gondrezick Bolsters Michigan Class
Kysre Gondrezick

Michigan head women’s basketball coach Kim Barnes Arico closed out her 2016 recruiting class with her best pull yet by landing a verbal commitment from the No. 35 prospect in the ELITE 150 on Wednesday.  Kysre Gondrezick, the 5-foot-9 combo guard from Benton Harbor, Mich., chose the Wolverines over her other in-state finalist Michigan State.

Michigan emphasized adding front court depth in this class, with the first three commitments being forwards – No. 81 Kayla Robbins, a 6-1 forward from Mitchellville, Md., No. 98 Akienreh Johnson, a 6-0 forward from Toledo, Ohio, and No. 112 Keasja Peace, a 6-2 forward, also from Toledo.

Adding Gondrezick to the fold gives Barnes Arico a versatile playmaker at the guard position.  She is as capable a scorer off the ball as she is a table setter at the point.  She will give Michigan options in the rotation joining current sophomore Katelynn Flaherty and freshmen Boogie Brozoski and Nicole Munger. 

Michigan has just two juniors on its roster right now so look for the 2017 class to be smaller in size.

This four-player class compares well nationally, ranking as the No. 13 class in the country with a week to go before the early signing period opens.
