ESPN Player Evaluations

Super Sunday Showcase, PA-January 2013: Long, agile and versatile forward brings dribble-drive attack, draws contact, finishes in traffic; emerging mid range game consistency to the arc; active on glass. (Olson)

Boo Williams-April 2013: Long and athletic insider plays taller than advertised; smooth interior game finisher, cleans glass, makes plays in traffic with either hand; defends, anticipates in extended pressure; produces on both ends of the floor. (Olson)

Nike TOC-Dec. 2011: A tremendous athlete at either forward position. Her ability to score in transition is among the best in the class and her half-court offense, especially facing up, is really starting to come together. She can play anywhere in the press and use her length and agility to create havoc. She elevates for scores in the paint or rebounds on either end with ease and has balance even at speed. Athletically she is one of the premier players in the class. (Hansen)

USJN Nationals-July 2011: She is becoming more confident on the perimeter as a scorer, as well as digging in on defense. Has the size and athletic ability to be a dominate player at the next level (Bodine)

USAB U16 Trials-May 11: She is at her best when she is playing the wing and can attack the basket in 2 dribbles or less. Her outside shot is not consistent right now from the perimeter. (Bodine)

Super Sunday-Jan. 11: Each time we see this 6-foot perimeter standout she plays with more confidence and maturity. Physically she's growing into a made-to-order, top-tier college prospect with both size and athleticism. Her comfort level with the ball in her hands is obvious and she's not as hesitant to put it on the floor and attack as she seemed back in December. She elevates well on her jumper and when the consistency comes to her touch defenders will have to make tough decisions. As impressive as her offensive prospects are, she could become a lethal defender with a combination of size, speed and strength that's hard to find and causes major matchup problems against smaller backcourts. (Lewis)

Nike TOC-Dec. 10: Lots of size and agility on the perimeter. Can create off the dribble but has some range as well. Will need to learn to be more active when the ball isn't in her hands. Has the athleticism to match up and defend smaller, quicker opponents. Came up with a few impressive rebounds but should produce more given her size and vertical. (Lewis)

Nike Nationals-July 10: One of the more exciting prospects in this class, has the length, athleticism to be a dominate player for years to come. Her shot mechanics will need to improve as her shot tends to be flat but overall all the tools are there. (Bodine)

USJN DC-July 10: Young with an impressive size and build. Very athletic with an explosive first step. The ballhandling and passing are there as well as the ability to use both hands. She reads the floor well and has good instincts in traffic. Gets in a stance on ball and defends but stands up a bit on the weakside. Lots of potential. (Lewis)
