2021 Class: Recruiting News/Updates, July 2019

Chloe Van Zeeland, 5-11 W, Kaukauna HS (WI): a local news item mentions that Van Zeeland has four offers:

So far the Kaukauna forward has received offers from Milwaukee, Illinois State, North Dakota and Bradley and she’s not worried how many more colleges come calling.

“I hope to get some more,” Van Zeeland said. “I’m really glad with what I have now.”


Trinity Thompson, 6-0 F, Michigan City HS (Gary, IN): a Chicago Tribune feature on Thompson notes a Wright State offer plus interest from several other schools.

Thompson, who transferred from West Side before her sophomore season, has a scholarship offer from Wright State. She has interest from Marquette, Iowa, St. Mary’s (Calif.), Miami of Ohio, Valparaiso, IUPUI and Indiana State.


Saylor Poffenbarger, 6-1 W, Middletown HS (MD): committed to UConn (Big East), over Oregon, Maryland, Missouri, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.

Saylor, who gave her verbal commitment to Auriemma at approximately 6 p.m. on Wednesday, received more than 30 Division I scholarship offers. By last winter, she had narrowed her list of schools to six: UConn, Oregon, Maryland, Missouri, Tennessee and Oklahoma.


Sonia Citron, 6-1 G, Ursuline School (New Rochelle, NY): a feature in Catholic New York includes a recruiting summary that mentions some but not all of the offers that have been extended to her (a number of earlier offers are missing). During this month she has landed offers from UCLA, Louisville, Ohio State, and Texas Tech.

Oregon and Stanford, the top-two finishers in the Pac-12 for the 2018-2019 season, made scholarship offers after the tournament ended June 22.

Maryland, Duke, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Clemson, Texas and Michigan have also extended athletic scholarships. Harvard and Princeton, Ivy League schools that do not offer athletic scholarships, are also recruiting Sonia, who is ranked 17th overall and sixth among guards in the high school class of 2021 by ESPN.


Anaya Barney, 5-10 G/W, Cedar Falls HS (IA): The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier with an article on Barney’s recent commitment to Northern Iowa (MVC), already their third in the 2021 class.

While Barney recently received interest from the Big Ten’s Nebraska and had offers from South Dakota State and Colgate, she decided the opportunity to compete alongside her sister within a program that has always felt like family was too good to pass up.

“When I was younger it was something I really, really wanted to do,” said Barney, who grew up attending Warren’s UNI camps and dreaming of one day playing for the Panthers. “Towards the end I didn’t know for sure if that’s where I wanted to be, because I didn’t know if I wanted to make my own path for myself somewhere else or if I wanted to go there (to UNI) and make my own path.

“I realized even if I didn’t go somewhere else and I stayed in the same place everyone else went, I was still able to make my own name for myself in the same program.”


Mackenzie Egger, 5-10 PG, Mount Pleasant HS (MI): committed to the application process at Yale (Ivy), just one day after being offered by them.


feature from the Lincoln Journal Star on Allison Weidner, 5-9 PG, St. Francis HS (Humphrey, NE), who has an offer from South Dakota and interest from several other schools.

The 5-foot-9 Weidner is picking up interest along the way. She received her first Division I offer, from South Dakota, in May. She also has heard from North Dakota State, South Dakota State and Creighton, and Nebraska and Minnesota have reached out.
