The recruiting trail is starting to get red hot. Equally important, numerous NCAA Tournament teams from last season are beginning to pick up some commitments.
Beginning down in Columbia, the Missouri Tigers has received a commitment from Aijha Blackwell. The 6-foot prospect from Berkeley has made the decision to stay in-state. Blackwell is an athletic guard who has size in the backcourt. She can create in the mid-range and rebound very well. The Whitfield School product is the highest ranked player to commit to Mizzou since Sophie Cunningham made the decision.
“I know she’s really dreamt of playing at Mizzou since she was a little kid,” declared Whitfield coach Michael Slater to Alex Schiffer of The Kansas City Star. “The history there with dad and it being her home state, I think there were a number of things outside of basketball that really drew her.”
Blackwell, a 5-star recruit and the number 8 recruit in the ESPNW HoopGurlz Top 100, joins Hayley Frank and Micah Linthacum in the 2019 recruiting class for Missouri.
Second, Maori Davenport has made the decision to play for Rutgers. The 6-foot-4 prospect from Troy, Alabama chose the Scarlet Knights over Florida, Georgia, Louisville and Mississippi State. She is an athletic post player with a great touch around the basket. The number 15 ranked player in the country continues a trend of top prospects who travel to play for legendary head coach C. Vivian Stringer.
Finally, the Georgia Lady Bulldogs continues its run on the recruiting trail. Jordan Isaacs has committed to playing for Georgia next season. The St. Francis prospect is a faceup post player who pounds the glass and is very physical in the post.
