The ranking has something to do with the number of recruits Iowa received already compared to some other teams. But still, it sounds nice. Iowa's 2015 class, also with 4 recruits, is ranked 34th on the same site. It seems to me Iowa's '15 class has bigger names than the '16 one, but maybe the site is looking at potentials.Let me preface this by saying that I don't think the site I'm going to quote is all that accurate, but ProspectNation has all four of Iowa's 2016 verbals as 4 Stars, and the class ranked at #7 in the country.
Oak what do you think of Blue Star Basketball?I have thought, in the past, that Prospect Nation has undervalued Iowa's recruits. So I was surprised to see them ranked that high.
Best of...March MayhemMadison Treece is a 6-4 center. Four Star by ESPN.
I can tell you that Houston is not a possible target. I believe she is Lisa's top target for 2017. She blew up at Boo Williams. She is now being recruited by some very strong programs. Iowa State also offered before this tourney because they knew she was about to blow up and wanted her to know they were serious.It is AAU season......this weekend it was the Boo Williams Nike Invitational in Hampton Va.
Bre Cera is playing for Midwest Elite, the AAU program that gave us Sam Logic and Melissa Dixon.
Alexis Sevillian plays for Michigan Crossover.
Makenzie Meyer and Amanda Ollinger play for All Iowa Attack. Also on the same team are two 2017s, playing up a grade, Jinaya Houston of Davenport and Madison Treece of Columbia , Missouri. A couple of Hawkeye possible targets.
I should have capitalized - she is not a POSSIBLE target...she is Bluder's TOP target for that class. In other words, she is most definitely being recruited by Iowa. Iowa is definitely in play for her. Sorry about the confusion.Houston is not a possible target? Iowa won 27 and 26 the last two years. They were ranked #11 in the nation in the last Coaches poll. They are a top program in their own right.
Bre Cera is still ranked as the #11 W, which most years would put her overall ranking in the 60-70 range, so she is very likely a top 100 player.ESPN updated their 2016 Top 60 rankings:
Ollinger remains at #30 (4* & overall 94 score)
Makenzie Meyer moves in at #57 (4* & overall 91 score) - 14th best PG.
Bre Cera & Alexis Sevillian remain on the Top 100 Watch List as 3* players with overall scores of 90 & 89.
M'caela Sellers of CR Kennedy dropped out of the Top 60
Last year the rankings expanded to the top 100 late in the year after the fall signing period ended.Bre Cera is still ranked as the #11 W, which most years would put her overall ranking in the 60-70 range, so she is very likely a top 100 player.
Oak, do you know when ESPN will expand their 2016 rankings to 100?
The main highlight film here is from her freshman year, and she was playing in both varsity and sophomore games in these highlights. She is probably another inch or so taller and has filled out more also.
Thirty-five Athletes Accept Invitations To Attend 2015 USA Basketball Women's U16 National Team TrialsThe National 16U team invited 35 players to try out. these are girls from 2017 and 2018. Madison Treece was one of the 2017s.
Some 2018 players from Iowa's recruiting area include:
Ayoka Lee, 6-5 post from Byron , Mn.
Christianna Carr, 6-0 G/F from Eden Prairie , Mn. I think her dad is the coach.
Lindsey Jarosinski, 6-4 post from Medinah, Il.
Katlyn Gilbert, 5-10 G from Indianapolis , Ind. She gave a verbal to Evansville as a 7th grader, but Is open now (I think).
