Alyssa Ustby, 6-1 W, Rochester Lourdes HS (MN): A feature on Ustby claims she has “waves of offers,” naming two: Stanford and Minnesota.
Alyssa is a three-sport athlete — soccer, basketball and softball. It used to be difficult to discern which was her best or even her favorite of those three.
But not anymore. Basketball is No. 1. This past high school season was her best yet at Lourdes, with the agile, fast and strong Ustby averaging 25 points, 11.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 3.4 steals, and leading the Eagles to a 20-8 record.
All of that production has caught the attention of big-time basketball recruiters, with waves of offers coming for Ustby.
That includes from the famed Stanford women’s program, as well as Minnesota, to name just two.

She said the exposure helped her draw interest from Division I programs Montana State and Rider, along with U.T.-Permian Basin, West Texas A&M and Angelo State.
Aniya Matthews, 6-3 C, Dallastown HS (PA): hosted Lafayette on a home visit.
