Narrows us down to about 4 targets in Nelson-Ododa, DeCosta, Nalyssa Smith, and Victaria Saxton correct?

Madison Williams or Zipporah Broughton maybe, is there any news about them?????

Being optimistic I'm gonna say we get Olivia Nelson-Ododa and Smith.

Honestly Henderson, Nelson-Ododa, and Smith is the best class since the A'ja class. 3 top 10 players is an absolutely absurd haul.

That potential lineup of Harris/Henderson/Cooper, Jackson/Henderson/Troup, Grissett/Cliney, Smith/Harrigan, LaDazhia/Nelson-Ododa/(maybe Jennings stays as a RS SR) is awfully impressive in 2018

Looks like Green wanted to stay out west. If we could land two out of Nelson-Ododa, DeCosta or Smith I'd be ecstatic. Heck, with our coaching and who we'll have returning any one of them would make me happy.

I have a question about women's recruiting. Is there some kind of honor code to where teams usually don't recruit another teams commits? You rarely here about ladies decommitting.

Maybe not so much on the east coast but I also frequent the Pac12 & B10 boards and I see A LOT of decommitting over there. Especially between UCLA, Baylor, & Texas recruits. Whatever Close, Mulkey, & Aston are doing they seem to go after the same kids quite often and those kids hop around more than the Easter Bunny.

I think a lot of it has to do with them getting kids to commit far too early... 8th grade and such. Who really knows what they want in 8th grade? I can't see any reason to even be offering that early. Then again I am not a DI coach with the pressure to bring in top classes year in and year out.

The longer we go without a commitment the more I'm beginning to feel that this is going to be a 2 or 3 person class. We have to remember that we already have Te'a Cooper and we'll have her for two more years starting in 2018. With a point guard committed already, an explosive SG transferring in and two guard heavy classes in 2016 and 2017.. I suspect that Dawn is throwing everything at Nelson-Ododa and Smith.

I've seen no evidence of SC recruiting/offering Victaria Saxton (if anybody has, please post it here) but it wouldn't surprise me being that she is from Georgia. I've also seen very little between Madi Williams and SC.. but that wouldn't surprise me either when considering how much effort SC is putting into recruiting Texas.

Realistically, I think it's down to Nelson-Ododa, Smith and DeCosta. If you had to ask me right now I'd say DeCosta goes to Tennessee or Baylor, Smith commits to South Carolina and Nelson-Ododa commits to ????.. I need to see her narrow down before I get a full read.

I agree with you on those final three. I think it's down to them as well. I really think DeCosta is headed to Tennessee as well.

Smith and Nelson-Ododa would be an incredible end to our 2018 signing class. 3 Top 10 players is unheard of in our history.

Agreed. I'd be content with 1 more out of the 3... but if we could somehow get 2 out of the 3 remaining then we'll be in for another historic class.

2019 Diamond Miller(NJ) is regarded as one of the best shooters in the 2019 class. So far I don't know if there's any mutual interest.

Since Dawn has a verbal commit from Henderson the rest of the 2018 recruiting seems centered around three players, Ono,Smith, and DeCosta. Do you think Dawn feels good about landing one or two of these three players. I wanna stay positive but i still fear striking out with all three. I really hope we can land Smith to go along with Henderson. In the post Aja era this team would be loaded with some talented guards and wings.

I'm afraid also, since we have no transfer waiting we need to get 1 of three...

there will be plenty of transfers in the spring. Personally I think Staley gets Smith and ONO.

I have to say, one or would be a bit disappointing. i was hoping for a bigger class. Cooper makes it less disappointing though.

Plenty of transfer but can't risk getting transfers unless you sure you're out on high schoolers
