Kennedy Spellman – Sand Creek
Given the keys to the offense from day 1, Spellman has been lights out throughout her freshman season. Spellman is already a high level shooter, stretching out well beyond the three point line. Through her rookie season with Sand Creek, she has put up 26.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 2.1 steals per game while contributing 40% of her 134 attempts from beyond. Spellman is far and away the most effective volume shooter in her class. For reference, the second place spot within the 2026 class is 24 made threes less than Spellman. Arguably the biggest reason for Spellman’s point total has been her free throw rate, attempting nearly nine per game. It should also be noted the guard is fully capable taking over, putting up 45 points and 10 rebounds against Coronado on January 14th.
Johnson is another volume shooter within the freshman class, at roughly 5’6. Recently garnering some publicity for her performance versus Atlas Prep back on January 20th. Notably getting a triple double, putting up 44 points, 10 rebounds, and 15 steals. As the primary ballhandler for 6-8 Salida, Johnson is entrusted with a large shot volume from the perimeter. She has shown more control with her halfcourt pace, especially playmaking out of the pick and roll. Over the coming years with Salida, it will be worth noting how her usage rate adjusts.
– Highlands Ranch
At roughly 5’9, Shumpert has immediately stepped into a valuable role with 14-3 Highlands Ranch. The freshman guard has opened up her high school career with averages of 8.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game while knocking down 34% of her three point attempts. She already has a knockdown jumper off the dribble, capable pulling up under tight windows. Not to mention that Shumpert already holds her own versus opposing seniors on the defensive end. Sky is the limit for the CU commit.
Jordan is already a dependable complementary scoring option alongside encouraging developments from her on the defensive end. Through her freshman season with Northfield, the guard has posted 9.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.7 steals per game while converting 35% of three point attempts. One on one, Jordan is capable matching up with both perimeter positions, proving to be very quick laterally. Her next development will be slowing her decisionmaking with the ball, especially in the halfcourt. Either way, bright future ahead for the freshman guard.
– Denver East
Valdez will be a noteworthy complementary piece with a competitive Denver East group. Going 10-8 so far on the year, Denver East’s floor spacing is already led by the freshman, converting 15 triples. Through her rookie season, Valdez has posted 4.8 points per game while converting 45% of her triples. At 5’7, Valdez has potential to defend multiple backcourt positions, already showing plenty of energy on that end. One thing is without a doubt, the shooting guard is knockdown from beyond.
