2011 Women's College Basketball Team Recruiting Rankings

Top-ranked Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis.
Connecticut is recruiting well; go figure. After a top-three, five-player signing class in 2010, the Huskies add three more pieces to the next championship-caliber puzzle.
With Maya Moore set to graduate and move on to the WNBA, replacing her scoring is coming by way of the 2011 class' top-ranked player, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis. The 6-foot wing from Anaheim, Calif., is the nation's best shooter and scorer. Her ability to keep defenses honest and allow post teammates to work one-on-one situations should help what will be a relatively young frontcourt, which was rebuilt primarily in the 2010 class for the post Tina Charles era.
Mosqueda-Lewis isn't the only big talent coming to Storrs next fall. Four-star guard Brianna Banks, a 5-9 lefty ranked No. 24 in the class by ESPN HoopGurlz, has the speed and savvy that will remind Husky fans of current junior Tiffany Hayes. The native of Newnan, Ga., has the potential to be an elite defender and has rare passing skills for a player not at the point.
Geno Auriemma's class is rounded out with No. 42 Kiah Stokes. The 6-3 post from Marion, Iowa, gives the Huskies depth in the post and she has the athleticism to play either interior position if needed.
UConn doesn't typically fill its roster to the NCAA limit of 15 scholarship players, so the program could add as many as three more players, but probably won't.
