Coverage of the women’s basketball 2021 recruiting class: offers, commitments, decommitments, unofficial visits, recruiting updates from news sites and other sources, etc. Items listed in reverse chronological order.
Katie Keitges, 5-8 SG, Knoxville HS (IA): The Knoxville Journal-Press has an article out on Keitges’s commitment to Omaha (Summit) in early August.
Keitges commented, “The school is only a 2 hour and 45 minute drive from home, so family and friends will be able to visit and watch many games, which I am excited about! The facilities are only three years old and $94 million were put into them, so they are very nice!”
Three more prospect pages have been posted:
- Sydney Affolter (IL) — 20 schools have offered her
- Meg Newman (IN) — more than half of the schools in the Big Ten have offered
- Wynter Rogers (AR) — picked up eight offers between April and early August
Kenzie Bowers, 5-10 PG, Kent City HS (MI): An MLive feature on Bowers notes that she has 15 D-I offers, although none from high majors yet.
Bowers says she does not really have a dream school, although she always liked Michigan State growing up. She does not list any favorites at this time, and that she is just trying to be patient with the process
Bowers, a 4.0 student, is just seeking the right fit – a place where she’s comfortable academically, athletically and socially, and where she can make an impact right away. Carlson also is urging her to make a decision based upon that mesh, not necessarily because of a school’s stature.
As covered in this site note on WBB Blog’s front page, prospect pages are being rolled out for the 2021 recruiting class. The first batch of pages feature these uncommitted 2021s:
- Aubryanna “Bree” Hall (OH)
- Payton Muma (CO)

- Bree Salenbien (MI)
- Jasmine Shavers (TX)
- Makiyah Williams (IL)
