Without burying the lede too much, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have landed a commitment from Loyal McQueen. On their end, the North Carolina Tar Heels scooped up a commitment from Alexandra Zelaya. More on both of them in a second.
Teams are hitting the recruiting trail this summer and numerous commitments are beginning to take shape. Although the focus is the 2019-2020 season, programs are building up rosters for the 2020-2021 season. Young players are beginning to make decisions for their futures in terms of college basketball.
For starters, Loyal McQueen, a five-star prospect, has become the second commit of the summer for Nell Fortner and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. She has become Georgia Tech’s second verbal commitment along with Avyonce Carter.
McQueen, a prospect from Darlington, South Carolina, is an explosive and athletic point guard. She can dictate tempo on both ends of the court and is an unselfish playmaker. The Wilson High School product was also considering Kentucky, East Carolina, Clemson and Virginia Tech. A good get for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, obviously.
Nell Fortner is not the only new head coach to hit the recruiting trail hard.
North Carolina Tar Heels head coach Courtney Banghart picked up a verbal commitment from Alexandra Zelaya. The three-star prospect from Goodyear, Arizona joins Kennedy Todd-Williams and Anya Poole in the 2020 recruiting class for the Tar Heels. The 6-foot-3 forward is a faceup-4 who can stretch the defense and is very active on the glass. Zelaya also has good instincts on the defensive end and is a matchup problem for bigger defenders.
