Throughout the month of October, the state of Iowa received a much needed Player Rankings Update. There was a total of over 60+ players added to the database throughout the four high school classes and those lists are only going to continue to grow. In the article below I wanted to switch it up and try out something new within the Rankings. I am going to list the Top 5 Players in the state, regardless of their grade level. Each one of these players is a college level prospect/commit, that has stood out on multiple stages over their career thus far.
Thanks for tuning in and enjoy!
#5 –– 2024 – PG – Solon High School
Starting off our list of the Top 5 Players – Regardless Of Class in Iowa we haveof Solon High School. Levin is an Iowa Women’s basketball commit and for good reason. Levin is a versatile guard right now at the high school level. She can play all around the floor and be successful at most positions. She is a natural 1/2 guard but her Spartans team isn’t afraid to post her up or give her the green light to take it in against a smaller/weaker defender. Over the past few years, we have watched Levin grow and I’m expecting that to continue for a little bit longer. First and foremost, she is a student of the game and understands what’s going on around her. I’m excited to see what she will bring to the Hawkeyes after this season but for now, she will focus in on her Senior year. This winter could be special for the Spartans if everyone comes in prepared.
#4 –– 2024 – SG – Johnston High School
is a player that is going to give you consistency and efficiency. Each night you know what you are going to get out of her and that is some sort of high-level production. Tanke, an Iowa State Women’s basketball commit, is always showing off what she can do offensively, while being a disruptor on defense. The past few years that I have had a chance of watching Tanke, she was consistent from deep each contest. It doesn’t matter if she is doing well in other categories, she is always doing well from behind the arc. In today’s game, that’s an important ability to have. For the Cyclones, Tanke can come in right away and produce. Will she get that chance? I’m not sure with who they will have returning to their roster in a year from now but if you give her the ball on the three point line with some space, it’s going to have a chance at going in. This is another player that has been recently ranked by ESPNW as a Top-100 player in the country out of the 2024 class. Don’t get me wrong, shooting is not Tanke’s ONLY ability. She is better than most others across the board, in all categories but it’s definitely one of her BEST abilities. Either way, it’ll be fun to watch her on the floor this season with the Dragons and into the future with the Cyclones.
#3 –– 2025 – CG – Davenport North High School
If you have been following along the past few months, you have seen the rise in interest inof Davenport North. I would say before the Spring AAU season there were a handful of teams interested in Bourrage but since, she has racked up 20+ Division-1 offers because of her elevated play. She has been on such a hot streak that during the last ESPNW Rankings Update, she was moved to the #9 spot in the nation for the 2025 Class. If that doesn’t speak to what she is doing out on the court, I don’t know what will. Bourrage moves differently than most players she is around and that is obvious from watching her compete for 5 minutes. I don’t expect the offers or interest to slow down anytime soon. At the end of this high school season it’s not crazy to predict that she will be sitting with around 30+ offers from prestigious Universities across the country. She still needs to go out and perform but I am more than comfortable giving her the #3 spot in this article. She has been that good in 2023.
#2 –– 2026 – CG – Ankeny High School
Ifwas in any other class than 2026, she would be the #1 player in that perspective class but because she isn’t, I think that she is getting somewhat overlooked. Now when I say that, understand that she already has a few different Power 5 offers to compete at the collegiate level but I think that list could really grow over the next season. Williams is a game changer. There is no other way to put it. On the high school floor she can play 1-4 and no matter what she is attempting to do, she is always bringing some productivity to her team. I don’t want to spoil anything but I THINK that Williams will be switching up her AAU team going into the spring. May not seem like a big deal but this could help put some more eyes on her, from a country-wide standout. I wouldn’t be surprised if Williams is nationally ranked before her high school career comes to close but we will just have to wait and see how it all plays out.
#1 –– 2026 – PG – Johnston High School
& the best player in the state of Iowa, throughout all high school grade levels isof Johnston High School. Lewis is the top rated player in her 2026 class in the state and is also ranked at #23 nation-wide according to ESPNW. Lewis is special. A player that has been receiving offers since the end of middle school, currently now has 30+ Division-1 opportunities once she graduates from Johnston. Whoever gets Lewis, if they can put her in the proper spot to perform efficiently early on in her career, she could be an “X” factor. As of most recent, Lewis has been announced by Overtime to be a captain for their new and upcoming circuit, Overtime Select. Lewis will be one of 8 captains going into the season. This platform is not going to only be great for the athletes selected this particular season but for the sport of women’s basketball as a whole. A sport that will continue to be on the rise moving forward.
