I narrowed it down to 13 prospects that could end up in the orange and blue....there very well could be more out there with a good possibility but these are the names I would keep an eye on. I will give the player's position and stats as listed on ESPN Hoopgurlz....though stats and even positions vary from site to site. HG, BS, NL, and WB are the national rank of each girl on Hoopgurlz, Blue Star, Next Level, and the Women's Basketball Insider respectively..... Here goes:
Adrienne Motley: 5'9 PG from Newport News, Virginia (HG 40, BS 39, NL UR, WB UR) is down to a final 5 of UF, FSU, Miami, Va Tech and Marshall.
Raigyne Moncrief: 5'10 G from Lauderhill, Florida (HG UR, BS UR, NL 10, WB 24) is reportedly down to UF, FSU, Miami, and NC State...though I have also seen it stated that she has not officially trimmed her list down yet.
Kai James: 6'4 C/P from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (HG 29, BS 70, NL 19, WB 8) is officially down to UF, FSU, Miami, Clemson, UGA, and Oklahoma. She is the sister of Joel James who is at UNC.
Ronni Williams: 6'0 W from Daytona Beach, Florida (HG 14, BS 27, NL 25, WB 21) is officially down to UF, FSU, UGA, Baylor, and Tennessee. Her father, Rodney, played two years at UF. My guess is this is Butler's top target along with Kai James.
Faith Woodard: 6'2 F from Brandon, Florida (UR nationally but a 3 star player on HG with a grade of 90) has a considering list of Bama, Auburn, UF, Miami, South, Carolina, USF, and UCF. Possibly a secondary option but a very solid player none the less....for perspective she is rated similar to what Jennifer George was in high school.
Shanae Armbrister: 6'0 W from Dania Beach, Florida (HG 59, BS 81, NL 114, WB 58) shows a considering list of FSU, UF, USF, Miami, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Va Tech on HG. She was committed to FSU at one point but has since decommitted.
Marques Webb: 6'0 F from Montgomery, Alabama (HG 24, BS 37, NL 94, WB 69) has a list of UF, FSU, Ga Tech, UGA, UK, Clemson, UT, and Baylor on HG.
The next set of girls do not have any lists of schools that I have found but are each either mentioned in articles or I know they are in communication with UF via some means, ie twitter, FB, etc and are also within a close proximity to UF.
Shayla Cooper: 6'1 F from Norcross, Georgia (HG 28, BS 58, NL 41, WB 45). Plays AAU ball with Essence Purple out of Florida.
Ieshia Small: 6'0 W from Miami, Florida (HG 13, BS 11, NL 21, WB 31).
Ivey Slaughter: 6'1 F from Lizella, Georgia (HG UR, BS UR, NL 34, WB 86). ESPN HG seems pretty high on this girl from articles, but for some reason her name doesn't show up when you search their database.
Erica Young: 6'2 F from Tampa, Florida ( HG UR, BS UR, NL 81, WB 88). My guess is Young, Slaughter, or Woodard will be in the class...but first dibs at the F slot are held for Cooper or Webb...possibly even Williams at F depending on who else signs.
Trimaine McCullough: 5'9 PG from Orlando, Florida (HG UR, BS UR, NL 58, WB 15). Very solid prospect but I think first dibs in the class will be for either Motley or Moncrief.
Lastly, another name to watch that is not Class of 2013 is Lauren Engeln, a 5'11 G from Laguna Hills, California. She is transferring from UCONN with 2 years of eligibility left. The ESPN article on her transfer mentions Boston College, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Oregon, and USC as possible destinations. She was rated 95 nationally by HG in her class...as well as 39 on BS and 14 on All Star Girl's Report.
