2019, 510 CG, Rikki Harris, North Central, George Hill Lady Rising Stars
One of the more dynamic scorers in the state regardless of class. Has incredible feel for game, completely fluid, able to score ball in nearly every way. Has handles, high skill set, size, and athleticism to line up at multiple spots and can defend multiple spots. She also rebounds very well from the guard position. High D1 Prospect with multiple offers.

2019, 61 W, Tayah Irvin, Hamilton Southeastern, ILGR Gold Long wiry wing that is still growing and has plenty of upside as a youngster. She has a Improving skill set on the offensive end, uses her length and athleticism to be proficient around the rim while also comfortable with the ball on the perimeter. She will need to add strength and bulk to her frame to become more physical in all aspects of game.

2019, 57 G, Shaila Beeler, Warren Central, ILGR Silver
Top true PG in the 2019 class. Exceptional handles, explosive off the dribble, able to create space and scoring opportunity for herself and teammates with superior athleticism and skill set. Beeler stepped up during the viewing period to ILGR Silver EYBL team and was ready to perform at the highest level. Stock riser in viewing period. High D1 prospect with multiple offers.

2020, 61 G, Sydney Parrish, Hamilton Southeastern, Sky Diggs Elite Parrish Recognized as perhaps the top incoming frosh in the state and one of the elite 2020 talents nationally. She was one of only three invitee to USA basketball tryout that had not yet competed in high school. 61 CG guard that has the size, skill set, and athleticism to play and defend nearly every spot on the court. Her ability to handle and shoot, along with her size and bball IQ attributes to a lethal offensive skill set. High D1 prospect with offers.

Chrissy Carr (2018-MN) has received an offer from Wisconsin ... point guard Shaila Beeler (2019-IN) has been offered by Michigan State.
