1 - Harris (Jr), Bradshaw (Jr), Henderson (Fr)
2 - Patrick (Jr), Troup (So)
3 - Cliney (Sr), Grisett (So), Jackson (So)
4 - Herbert-Harrigan (Jr), Williams (So)
5 - Jennings (Sr)
If we added another guard and a post player to what's above then that gives us 13 players. We can take as many as 5 players in 2018.. I think Dawn will take at least 4. There are currently 13 players not committed to any school in the top 25. I know for sure that SC is currently involved with 9 of them, including the last 5 of the uncommitted players in the top 10 (with the #10 player, Henderson, already committed).

Tennessee was in a similar situation last year and pulled in a record class... I think SC will do something similar this year (or, I'm hoping we will at least). I think when it's all said and done we add three more players to Henderson... I'm not comfortable enough yet to say who those three will probably be... but I believe it's going to be another bigger guard (5'10-6'2) and two bigs (1 post and a versatile power forward)

I hope you're right and we pull in a class loaded with top 10 players. Dawn's resumé is looking very good and any top player should feel honored to play for her. Go get'em Dawn!

Yeah I meant 13 players. I think we might take a class of 4 if those players are top 25 caliber. One of the reasons I think we're doing so well this year is Dawn basically uses an 8 player rotation in games. This has allowed the starters to really gel together and I think that's paying off now. I don't think we need a team of 14-15 where most players aren't even playing meaningful minutes.

UPDATE: ESPN #2 overall player and #1 guard, Christyn Williams, has cut South Carolina and Arkansas from her top 7.

She now has a top 5 of Baylor, UConn, Notre Dame, Tennessee and UCLA.

Wish she could've been a Gamecock but good luck to her wherever her future takes her!

UPDATE: according to this article, the "top choices" for ESPN #47 overall player, Brinae Alexander... Vanderbilt, Kentucky, and Georgia Tech.

I think she's Kentucky bound.

Very discouraging seeing so many of the elite cutting USC from their lists.

Can't sign em all. As long as we get our share of top talent we're fine.

We're still in the running for a few top 10 players. I really want Nelson-Ododa though.

Give me a class of Nelson-Ododa, NaLyssa Smith, Destanni Henderson and 1 (or 2) more from Honesty Scott-Grayson, Elizabeth Balogun or Zarielle Green and I would be ecstatic.

I would LOVE to see SC pull Smith and Green out of the state of Texas though.




FWIW, I heard that Nelson-Ododa visited unofficially again for the 2nd time and that Scott-Grayson was here a few weeks ago with her dad. When we had our sellout for that last home game where we won the regular season, McCray tweeted about having a "special guest" on campus... has to be one of the two, right?

Green or Balogun would be nice as tall & athletic shooting guards. I thought Scott-Grayson was more of a PG and I'm not sure we take another one with 3 on the roster already (Harris, Bradshaw, Henderson). On the other hand, we've seen Staley go with Harris & Cuevas-Moore together as I think she likes having two primary ball handlers handle opposing defenses.

UPDATE: ESPN #12 overall and #3 guard, Zarielle Green, released her official top 5 last night.

South Carolina, Georgia, UCLA, Kansas, Texas A&M

I like our chances.

Based on her twitter last night, it looks like NaLyssa Smith is one of them.
