The 2023-24 preseason rankings have kicked off and 252 girls from across the state were named to the class of 2024 list. With tons more out there, the list will expand by end of the season as more kids will be discovered. I must say that the young ladies ranked in our rankings come highly regarded from high school coaches, scouts, travel ball coaches, and even input from collegiate coaches as well. Within this state, we have a lot of talent and the girls nominated to this list deserve credit for their hard work and determination.
With all that being said, I would like to take the time out to highlight a few new additions to the rankings. When I tell you I feel these girls bring it, I must say they do that plus more. Each of these kids are skilled at their own position, but also bring both leadership and have phenomenal personal character as well. Yes, they do the little things on the floor like get buckets, but off of it, they are tremendous kids within the school and in the community.
Here are a few new additions to the class of 2024 rankings.
(6’3/C/ Lebanon)– Had a tremendous summer and her trajectory has skyrocketed from her play. She has been featured in many publications and will be making a big impact for her ball club this year. She’s an anchor in the painted area, dominating on both ends of the floor. Scoring points, grabbing boards, blocking shots, this kid is tremendous and will be an enforcer for the Lady Deviletts.
(5’11/C/ Cumberland Co.)– She’s a grinder and is tremendous from the field. Can knock down the open shot inside the arc, grab boards consistently, runs the floor well, tremendous in the pick n’roll game. She is in on the hustle plays and displays grit and toughness when she’s within the lines. Her leadership will go a long way as Cumberland Co. will look to contend this upcoming season.
(5’6/SG/McKenzie)– It’s her time now. Sis is gone and now she’s going to have to step into a bigger role. She has the makeup to do so, as she can get buckets by the bunches. She is a 3 level scoring threat that has a nice stroke. Blessed with speed and has the ability to think on the fly, Mikaela will be able to exploit a team’s weakness through her tenacity and her athleticism. She will be a big time contributor to the success of her ball club this upcoming season.
(5’7/SG/Riverdale)– Sweet n’ sassy, this kid shows up and competes as soon as the whistle is blown. She’s a shooter and can unleash it from the arc at a moment’s notice. She plays hard, going after loose balls and doing the little things on the floor. She can handle the rock, but her best attribute is receiving screens and firing away. Will look to have a successful season and continue to establish her identity within the presence of the Lady Warriors culture. Awesome kid who will play a pivotal role this season.
(5’11/SF/ Meigs Co.)– Comes highly recommended, this dual sport athlete committed to Tennessee Wesleyan. Julia is an inside out player who just hoops. She can score from the arc, put it on the floor, clean up the glass, defend, and really just about anything the coach asks her to do. She is tough to defend due to her ability to beat her opponent from various spots on the floor. You take away the inside, she sprays you from the 3. Take away the 3, she’s bullying you around the block. Her versatility causes problems and she will be a huge impact to the success of the Meigs Co. ball club this upcoming season.
