Tanayja London, 5-11 W, Hillhouse HS (New Haven, CT): committed to Iona (MAAC) yesterday during an unofficial visit.
On Thursday, London made an unofficial visit to the Division I school in New Rochelle, New York, and gave her verbal commitment before leaving the campus.

Lexi Eberhardt, 5-6 G, Loveland HS (CO): announced her commitment to Colorado State (Mountain West) as a preferred walk-on.
Emily Behnke, 6-2 F/C, Manitowoc Lutheran HS (WI): The Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter reports on Behnke’s commitment to North Dakota State (Summit) in mid-January.
Behnke needed to find a school which offered her major, sonography or ultrasound technician, and preferably close to where she’s spent her entire life up to this point.
During her recruitment, if a program didn’t offer the major they were immediately off the list, and she was upfront about it.
She’d spoken with nearby Division III schools Concordia and Carroll University, but a school well outside of her preferred area was calling — Division I North Dakota State.
NDSU checked off the biggest box, having a sonography program.
“Right off the bat I’m looking if they have the thing I want to do with the rest of my life. Education comes first,” Behnke said.
