ASGR Basketball Rankings
Big Ten Recruiting Rankings: Version 2.0

A late surge boosted Michigan State to the top slot in the Big Ten. Indiana also performed well, with a strong, five-player class that should lift the Hoosiers into conference title contention.

Here is a team-by-team look at the Big Ten recruiting classes as ranked by the All Star Girls Report (individual rankings as of Version 1.0), along with comments from ASGR analyst Bret McCormick.

  • No. 84    Shay Colley, 5’8, PG. (Transfer from Pittsburgh)
  • No. 167 Claire Hendrickson, 5’11, PG., Wyoming Park HS, MI
McCormick: “The have some good pieces in place, and adding Cooks gives them another quality player. She could come in and start as a freshman.”

2- INDIANA

  • No. 23    Jaelynn Penn, 5’10, SG., Louisville Butler HS, KY
  • No. 108  Bendu Yeaney, 5’10, SG., Potland, St. Mary’s, OR

  • No. 185  Alexis Johnson, 6’2, WF., Kinkaid HS, TX
  • No. 201  Lindsey Marchese, 6’3, C., Archer HS, GA
McCormick: “This is a great class for Indiana, which comes on the heels of some success on the court. This is a program that is really on the rise.”

3- MICHIGAN

  • No. 94  Deja Church, 5’10, SG., Southfield Lathrup HS, MI
  • No. 96  Hailey Brown, 6’2, PF, St Thomas More (CANADA)
McCormick: “Kim Barnes-Arico is slowly building the program, and they could make it into the Top 25 this year. They have added two more pieces to the puzzle with this class.”

4- PURDUE

  • No. 82    Tamara Farquhar, 6’0, WF., Dawson HS, (CANADA)
  • No. 127  Dani Lawson, 6’2, PF., Hathaway Brown HS, OH
  • No. 243  Le’ony Boudreau, 5’9, PG., Dawson HS, (CANADA)
McCormick: “They should have a good season with a veteran roster, and Farquhar is the star of the class. She is a great athlete with skills, and she should have a major impact next year. The other two kids will help their future. Lawson will shore up the frontcourt, and Boudreau is a fundamentally sound point guard.”

5- ILLINOIS

  • No. 53   Channise Lewis, 5’8, PG., Miami Country Day, FL
  • No. 235  Jnaya Walker, 6’1, SG., Bolingbrook HS, IL
McCormick: “They have gotten through a tough time at Illinois, but they seem to be moving forward. This is another strong class, so they have put together a few of those now. Look for the Fighting Illini to be moving up.” 6- I

6- NORTHWESTERN

  • No. 109  Lauryn Satterwhite, 5’8, PG., Westview HS, AZ
  • No. 123   Lindsay Pulliam, 5’10, SG., Good Counsel HS, MD
  • No. 177   Jordan Hamilton, 5’8, PG., Frisco Liberty HS, TX
McCormick: “Northwestern had a strong year last season, and they should be good again this year. They are adding three superior players to their backcourt, and they should provide an immediate impact.”

7- NEBRASKA

  • No. 83  Taylor Kissinger, 6’0 SG., Minden HS, NE
McCormick: “Amy Williams has a really good team coming back for her first season. Kissinger is an in-state kid who fits their system, and she can score the basketball.”

8- MINNESOTA

  • No. 85  Destiny Pitts, 5’11, WF., Detroit Country Day HS, MI
McCormick: “Pitts is a good athlete who can score, so she is a player who can help move Minnesota forward. This is a solid program, and one of the schools that makes the Big Ten so tough.”

9- IOWA

  • No. 87  Jinaya Houston, 6’1, WF., Davenport North HS, IA
McCormick: “Iowa has been a constant under Lisa Bluder — they are going to be fundamental and tough to beat. Houston is a skilled player, and she will bring a little more athleticism to the team.”

10- PENN STATE

  • No. 114  Alisia Smith, 6’4, PF., Lansing Waverly HS, MI
  • No. 241  Kamaria McDaniel, 5’9, SG, Dearborn Heights Robichaund HS, MI
McCormick: “Penn State has slipped a little lately, but I think they are going to be more competitive this year. The program seems to be back on track, and Smith will give them a strong inside player.”
