Conference USA Recruiting Rankings: Version 2.0

Old Dominion produced the best class in Conference USA with five new players, including one Top 100 prospect.

Middle Tennessee also had a big year on the recruiting trail. The Blue Raiders brought in four talented players to form an outstanding class, and three of those four recruits are strong baseline athletes.

Here is a team-by-team look at the C-USA 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.

1- OLD DOMINION

  • No. 89    Janeen Camp, 6’5, C., Woodrow Wilson, HS, VA
  • No. 148  Dazia Powell, 5’9, PG., Millbrook HS, NC
  • No. 226  Dejah Carter, 6’3, C., Tazewell County HS, VA
  • No. 705  Danae Camp, 6’3, C., Woodrow Wilson, HS, VA
  • NR         Kelly Lofton, 5’11, SG., Mt Vernon HS, VA (Transfer From Hofstra)
McCormick: “ODU is doing well, and this is a great class. Janeen Camp could be special, and Powell is a very, very good guard. They could both start immediately.”

2- MTSU

  • No. 42 JC  LaSonja Edwards, 6’0, PF., Gulf Coast State College, FL
  • No. 220     Jadona Davis, 6’5, PF., Wayne County HS, MS
  • No. 266     Kara Meadows, 6’3, C., Clarkrange HS, TN
  • No. 396     Anna Jones, 5’11, SG., University School of Jackson, TN
McCormick: “Coach Insell has, once again, built a strong recruiting class. Edwards leads the group, and this is the type of class that will keep Middle Tennessee State up at the top of Conference USA.”

3- FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL

  • No. 52    Cabria Lee, 5’7, SG., Northeast HS, FL
  • No. 379  Callie Cavanaugh, 6’2, PF., Holyoke HS, MA
  • No. 712  Shionna Banks, 6’3, C., South Charletston HS, WV
McCormick: “New head coach Tiara Malcolm is starting with a tremendous class. Lee is an outstanding guard who wanted to stay close to home. Lee should start from Day One. Cavanaugh is another key recruit who is something of a sleeper.”

4- RICE

  • No. 141  Sydne Wiggins, 5’10, SG., Harrison HS, GA
  • No. 294  Erica Ogwumike, 5’10, SG., Cypress Woods HS, TX (Transfer From Pepperdine)
  • No. 314  Alexah Chrisman, 6’3, PF., McAuley HS, IN
  • No. 358  Temi Alao, 6’0, PF., Allen HS, TX
  • NR       Olivia Ogwumike, 6’0, PF, Cypress Woods HS, TX (Transfer From Pepperdine)
 McCormick: “Their recruiting is really stepping up. Sydne Wiggins is a BCS level guard, and getting the Ogwumike sisters is another big addition. Then they brought in a pair of good young post players.”

5- CHARLOTTE

  • No. 191  Mariah Linney, 5’9, SG., Goose Creek HS, SC
  • No. 254  Junajah Somerville, 5’9, SG., Lake Taylor HS, VA
  • No. 406  Octavia Wilson, 5’8, SG., Eleanor Roosevelt HS, MD
  • No. 447  Lyrissa Deans, 6’3, PF., Bishop Ireton HS, MD
McCormick: “Charlotte should have a good season on the court, and this class should keep that momentum going. Linney had a great summer, Somerville got a lot of BCS looks, and the other two kids should also impact the program.”

6- WESTERN KENTUCKY

  • No. 198  Nichel Tampa, 5’6., PG., St. Francis HS, GA
  • No. 376  Sherry Porter, 5’8, SG., Madison Prep HS, LA
McCormick: “Tampa is a big time point guard recruit. She is a high IQ player who could be their point guard for four years. Porter is really athletic, and she can score. This should be their backcourt of the future.”

7- SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI

  • No. 70 JUCO  Kyle Felton, 6’2, P., Jones County CC, MS
  • No. 84 JUCO  Hannah Lott, 5-8, G., Jones County CC, MS
  • No. 414  Amber Landing, 6’2, PF,., Madison Ridgeland Academy, MS (Transfer From UALR)
  • No. 368  Kennedy Gavin, 6’1, PF,. Petal HS, MS
  • No. 390  Imani Carter, 6’0, WF., Enterprise HS, AL
  • No. 526  Allie Kennedy, 5’8, PG., Red Bay HS, AL
McCormick: “This is another good class for Southern Miss. Gavin is an impact-type forward with a strong body. Carter is very athletic, and she can shoot it. Kennedy is a smart, solid point guard. Joye Lee McNellis has a tradition of doing well with transfers, and I think Landing will be another good addition.”

8- MARSHALL

  • No. 374  Kristin Mayo, 5’6, PG., East Carter HS, KY
  • No. 504  Taylor Pearson, 5’10, WF., Northland HS, OH
  • No. 738  Brie Toney, 6’1, PF Bexley HS, OH
  • No. 765  Leah Wingeier, 6’4, C., Newark HS, OH
McCormick: “Marshall came close to a complete lineup. Mayo is a tough guard who can score, and she fits their system. Pearson and Toney are both versatile players. They also added good size with Wingeier.”

9- LOUSIANA TECH

  • No. 257  Nikki McDonald, 6’0, WF., Wesleyan HS, GA (Transfer From ELON)
 McCormick: “McDonald is a scorer. She is a versatile inside-outside player, and she has college experience.”

10- NORTH TEXAS

  • No. 429  Lauren Holmes, 5’7, SG., Fayetteville HS, AR
  • No. 598 Trena Mims, 5’7, PG., Muskogee HS, OK
McCormick: “They got a nice backcourt. They are both tough guards who can score the basketball.”

11- UTEP

  • No. 662   MaQhi Berry, 5’8, SG., Ranchview HS, TX
  • NR            Asia Henderson, 6’4, F., Southview HS, NC
McCormick: “UTEP has added an athletic lefty combo guard who can score the basketball, along with a kid with size and the potential to develop into a double-double player.”

13- UTSA

14- UAB
