This girl will be one of the top players in the nation before she is done. I think she is going to end up playing at Davenport Central. I have seen her play numerous times. She can play all 5 positions. She can shoot from deep. She would have started for any high school team in Iowa as a 7th grader. I believe Brea will have her pick of colleges when all is said and done. She will be UCONN good. Good kid and a dominant basketball player.And one for 2019
Breanna Beal, 6’1 Forward, Midwest Elite 15U EYBL (Rock Island) – One of my favorite players from the event, Beal showed the ability to score with ease from the free throw line in. Has the capability to shoot from three, but needs to become more consistent. Over powers older players when going for rebounds. Has the potential to become an impact player at the BCS level.
This is disappointing but not surprising. Is there any other 2016's that Iowa may still be recruiting? I noticed that M'Caela Sellers is playing for North Tartan along with Minnesota native and recent Wisconsin verbal pledge Courtney Frederickson and another commit to Iowa State. I like what I saw of her in the videos but Iowa seemingly has depth at her position and wonder if there is any mutual interest. If Iowa does not add anyone to the 2016 class, they would have three scholarships open for 2017.Jeannie Boehm 6-3 PF 2016 has verbally pledged to Harvard University. Plays HS at New Trier IL.
Yep. I hear they are waiting for an Illinois AAU coach to complete her Iowa coaching certification before they announce, and then Brea's dad will be on the staff. I wouldn't be surprised if other kids from Davenport/Rock Island start moving around the next year or two.If Beal plays at Davenport Central, that program just cashed the jackpot. 1-21 last year.
I am about 99% positive that those letters are not actually offers, but more of a generic letter. Having said that, and like I said, she will probably have her pick of schools when it is that time.8th grade student recieives college offer letters for basketball
Aubrey catches up with Breanna Beal, a local basketball star whose skills on the court has landed her college offer letters from big ten schools.
Yes, thank you Oak for all your time and efforts keeping this thread alive. You truly are the lifeblood of the Iowa WBB forum. Also thanks to BGHAWK and everyone else that contributes to this thread. I really appreciate it.
All patronizing aside, it has been noted in previous comments, but I just want to reemphasize that Iowa 2017 recruit(s) Madison Treece (and Jinaya Houston) play on the same AAU team (All Iowa Attack 16U Nike) as Amanda Olinger and Makenzie Meyer while 2017 recruit Sydney Cooks is playing on the same Midwest Elite team as Breanna Cera. Finally, I believe Destiny Pitts plays for Michigan Crossover with Alexis Sevillian. So hopefully the current 2016 verbal commits can persuade the 2017's to join them at Iowa.
Oak, do you think the last possible 2016 recruit could be M'Caela Sellers? I liked what I saw of her in the video clips. Also, she reminds me of Theairra Taylor.
