Kindyll Wetta, 5-9 PG, Valor Christian HS (Highlands Ranch, CO): committed to Colorado, the Buffs’ first commit in the 2021 class.
Se’Quoia Allmond, 5-7 PG, Whitehaven HS (Memphis, TN): Allmond is the subject of this feature from the Daily Memphian. Among her reported offers: Georgia, Alabama, and Houston.
If you follow Memphis high school girls basketball, you know all about Allmond’s talent. In 2017-18, she averaged 11.3 points per game on a balanced team and was selected third-team all-metro, the only freshman among the top 15.
In May, she represented the United States in international competition, playing in the Across Border Games in Canada. She visited Louisville in December and has drawn interest from several other schools. Off the court, she’s an honor roll student who takes – among other challenging courses – third-year Russian.
Iyana Moore, 5-7 PG, Blackman HS (Murfreesboro, TN): A Daily News Journal feature on Moore mentions that she recently received her first Power 5 offer, from Vanderbilt. The schools that offered her previously are Tennessee State, Jacksonville State, and North Alabama.
Jersey Wolfenbarger, 6-1 G, Northside HS (Fort Smith, AR): A feature on Wolfenbarger mentions Arkansas coach Mike Neighbors providing her with some videos of drills for her to work on. She received her first offer from Neighbors, in April 2018. Later offers include Ole Miss, Kansas State, Kansas, Wake Forest, and Purdue.
One drawback to Wolfenbarger’s increased height is the clumsiness some people experience with such growth spurts, and she admitted she felt it at times. Her solution to dealing with the situation is working her way through it without losing any of her quickness.
Smith said Wolfenbarger received some help from Arkansas women’s coach Mike Neighbors, who gave her videos of drills to work on during a visit in August. It allowed her to bring the drills home and work against Kelsey Plum, who Neighbors coached at Washington, as well as Razorback players.
“One of the things that helped me when I was shorter is I was really quick,” Wolfenbarger said. “I’m trying to keep that while I am growing. When I was feeling clumsy, I did agility and core balance so it wouldn’t interrupt what I’m doing in the game.
“I would like to say my rebounding has really grown. I didn’t rebound as much last year, and I talked to coach about it. He said one of the things I could improve on with my new height is rebounding. Every game, I try to make that my mission. I like to see how many rebounds I can get in a game.”
Jillian Brown, 5-10 G, East Grand Rapids HS (MI): MLive feature on Brown, who has seven D-I offers: Eastern Michigan, Marquette, Miami (OH), Western Michigan, Loyola Chicago, Central Michigan, and DePaul.
“Jillian has had an outstanding start to the season,” EGR coach Troy Hammond said. “She’s been a consistent scorer and plays with a great energy.”
Defensively, the 5-10 sophomore guard causes mismatches wherever she plays on the court, because of her size and athleticism.
“As a taller guard, she’s able to guard positions one through five when we need her to,” Hammond said. “She’s an outstanding finisher at the rim and is able to decide where the ball needs to go when she draws multiple defenders.”
Morasha Wiggins, 6-0 W, Kalamazoo Central HS (MI): was offered by Illinois. Offers previously reported for her: Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, DePaul, West Virginia, and Ohio State.
Wynter Rogers, 5-11 W, Little Rock Christian Academy (AR): picked up an offer from Louisiana Tech. Oklahoma State and Tulsa reportedly offer in the later months of 2018.
Meg Newman, 6-2 W, North Central HS (Indianapolis, IN): Pitt is the latest school to offer Newman. From July through December of 2018, she reportedly landed the following offers: Eastern Illinois, Ball State, Indiana State, Purdue, Villanova, Marquette, Dayton, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
Zakia Rasheed, 5-8 G, Bishop Chatard HS (Indianapolis, IN): landed an offer from Akron. A handful of offers were reported for her over the course of 2018: Wright State, FIU, IUPUI, and Detroit Mercy.
Sydney Standifer, 5-8 PG, Argyle HS (TX): committed to Clemson. The Denton Record-Chronicle provided coverage of her commitment.
Standifer, who said she has about 10 Division I offers so far, was on campus from Tuesday to Friday before making her verbal commitment to the program.
“After visiting this week, they really made me feel like I was at home and a part of the team,” Standifer said. “They offered me nearly a year ago and have recruited me consistently. I got to watch practice and see how hard the players work for the coaches and how much the coaches get out of them. That was important, because I want a coach that will push me every day.”
Nariah Scott, 5-10 G, Tabor Academy (MA): picked up an offer from Boston Univ.; also has an offer from UMass.
