2019 Class: Recruiting News/Updates, April–December 2018

Aniya Walker, 6-2 W, Ambridge HS (PA): committed to St. Francis (Pa.) over six other D-I offers.

She chose the Red Flash after considering seven NCAA Division I scholarship offers. Other offers came from Duquesne, Lafayette, Akron, Youngstown State, Columbia and North Carolina A&T.

“It’s close to home, and it seems like it’s just the right spot for me for basketball and academics,” Walker said.


Dayshanette Harris, 5-8 G, Youngstown Ursuline HS (OH): Pitt was “late to the party” but still secured Harris’s commitment.

“Pitt contacted me at the end of August. It was closer to the end of the recruiting process to they were actually a little late to the party but I’m truly happy they came along,” said Harris. “I was considering Marquette, Iowa, Ohio and Youngstown State as well. Youngstown State is five minutes from my home.”

The 5-foot-7 inch prospect visited Pitt August 6th through the 8th and was blown away by her experience. “What stood out to me and my family is how Coach White and the entire staff greeted us as soon as we got there. They were so excited that we were there,” she said. “It just felt like a family vibe and I’m really big on that. Coach White and the assistant coaches all showed me that. They all showed me that they are family, how important I am to their program and how important I am as a person. That all led to my decision.”


Taylor Boruff, 5-11 W, Taylor HS (Kokomo, IN): Feature on Boruff’s recent commitment to High Point.

Boruff said the chance to play under [High Point head coach DeUnna] Hendrix, mixed with her first impressions of the campus and program when she visited a few weeks ago, was more than enough to seal the deal.

“Really what got my attention, it was obviously coach Hendrix,” Boruff said. “I’ve known her for a while and just the fact that she came from Kokomo and she was a standout there, that really pushed me to want to go on a visit and check everything out.

“Once I got on campus, being around her and the coaching staff and then seeing how nice the campus was, it was by far I think the most beautiful place I’ve been. Just a combination of all of that, I just knew it was a place for me.

Alex Scruggs, 5-9 G, E. E. Smith HS (Fayetteville, NC): committed to Wake Forest, over Georgia Tech, Clemson, Yale, and Virginia.

Scruggs fielded a slew of Division I offers, and though she didn’t publicly narrow down her choices to a shortlist before making her commitment, she now says she seriously considered Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Yale and Virginia.

Ultimately, the school’s close proximity to Fayetteville and its sports medicine program tipped the scales for Scruggs.

“It’s a good place for what I want to do,” she said. “Wake Forest felt right.”


Gabby Gregory, 6-0 W, Holland Hall HS (Tulsa, OK), committed to Oklahoma, over Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas State, and Missouri.

“It has been my dream ever since I was little to be able to play at OU,” the Sapulpa resident said in a text to the Tulsa World. “It still feels surreal to say that I am going to be a part of the Oklahoma women’s basketball team.”


Eboni Walker, 6-0 W, Centennial HS (Las Vegas, NV): committed to Arizona State, over Georgia and UNLV. She’s #50 in espnW’s 2019 rankings. Walker is the second 2019 commit for the Sun Devils, joining Sydnei Caldwell, 5-9 G, Saddle River Day School (NJ).

“I love everything about ASU,” Walker said. “It’s kind of like being at home being there. I loved the atmosphere between players and coaches and academics. It really helped me making the decision.”


Kaelynn Satterfield, 6-0 W, Christ the King (NY), narrowed her list five: Georgia Tech, LSU, Marquette, Michigan, and Ohio State. She eliminated three schools from her previous top eight: UMass, North Carolina, and Seton Hall.

Maori Davenport, 6-4 C, Charles Henderson HS (Troy, AL): Feature on Davenport mentions that she hopes to narrow her list to a final five by summer’s end. Alabama, LSU, and Mississippi State are mentioned as being among her “numerous” offers.

A good student (3.1 GPA) with an interest in history, Davenport has numerous college offers — from LSU, Alabama and Mississippi State, among others. She hopes to narrow her list to five by the end of the summer.

“There are so many of them,” Davenport said when asked about her choices. “They are all selling me their programs, and I don’t know if everything is the truth or not.

“I just know that when I pick a school, I don’t want to transfer. I want to stay there the whole four years.”


Kennady Tucker, 5-11 PG, North Little Rock HS (AR), who committed to Mississippi State in March 2018, has reopened her recruitment. A report from October 2017 indicated that she had ten offers at that time, among which were Arkansas, Louisville, and Mississippi State.
