Prep Girls Hoops has been devoted to covering athletes across their high school careers discussing their talents and bringing awareness to their abilities at the next level. We get very excited when players announce their commitments to schools continuing their basketball careers. Let’s take a look at some of the recent athletes who have committed to schools after their senior seasons.
Madison Pounds has been a leader for her teams even before she was a senior. She’s a phenomenal ball handler controlling the tempo, making sharp passes to her teammates, and setting herself up for shots all over the court. Her ability to run a high speed offense is sure to translate well to the collegiate level. Another thing that sets her apart is her ability to play both ends of the court with high intensity throughout every game she plays being sure to guard a tough opponent stripping the ball away from them to take the other direction.
Krystal Haddock is a guard who will do everything her team needs her to on the court. She does all of the little things like running plays well, timing her cuts, and drawing defenders towards her to open up some space for her teammates. She’s a tough defender being able to keep her opponent in front of her protecting the basket and knocking the ball away from guards trying to dribble by her.
Raven Lexander has been showing off her versatility on the court her entire high school career. She can get inside using her height to score on the block, and she does a nice job grabbing rebounds on both ends. Her ability to get open around the perimeter and score from deep shows off her way of scoring on multiple levels that is difficult to defend. Her length is sure to deflect some passes disrupting her opponents’ offensive sets.
Michela Jones may not be a point guard, but she still has amazing court vision as if she is one. She knows how to find the openings whether she is cutting herself looking for the pass or she is whipping a quick one into her teammates as they make their way to the basket. She knows how to shift the defense and find the openings to catch the pass being ready to shoot quickly before a defender has time to react. She can score on all levels, too, showing her range on offense.
Laniya Scales is another versatile player on here that has shown off her athleticism and ability to elevate over her opponents for her shot her entire high school career. She knows how to attack the gaps and create her own space to put up her jumper. She can battle anyone in the paint for some rebounds, and she has some nice post moves to score her points off the glass.
