Yes!! I think (well, hope) the first commit of a phenomenal class.  Hoping to hear the same from Timea Gardiner and Kiki Rice!

Excellent !

of immense proportions of immense proportions of immense proportions! What great news. Now let’s get Rice!


RE: WBB #1 2022 Lauren Betts is Cardinal! - Hulk01 - 01-13-2021

Gardiner may have some similar motivations to turning Cardinal:
rejoining her USA teammates (Betts and Rice) and
staying in the conference so her friends and family can see her in her home state (Utah) each season.

And man, Tara's teams are getting taller and longer by the year.

Hoorah!  Fabulous news!

Here is what ESPN says about her:

6'7" post.  #1 in class, #1 in position.

Quote:Nike TOC-July 2020: Dominant low-post performer displays interior game consistency complemented by a more consistent face up threat; a defensive presence, swats shots; mobile in uptempo game; continues to be the most dominant prospect in the class of 2022. (Olson)

We are having an amazing run with recruiting lately.

Wow, is she really 6-7?  Looking at the family photo in her tweet, her dad must be about 7-1!

Congrats to her and props to our staff!

Awesome!


RE: WBB #1 2022 Lauren Betts is Cardinal! - 81alum - 01-13-2021

Now, if Kiki Rice commits we would really be set.  We are going to have the best posts in the game for years to come, we need to reload our guards.  2021 brings us Harriel and Bosgana, who I don't really know a lot about.  Bosgana is a foreign player who was not ranked, Harriel is the #14 PG in her class.  Van Gytenbeek showed us some stuff last game, and we have seen little of Nnopu so far. 

Perhaps once Williams and Wilson graduate, it will be time to bring back the triangle?

Yes, her dad is 7'1".  He played in Europe.  (Think he played collegiately at Long Beach State).

You've touched on why I think we may want and need Londyn Jones, even with Rice, unless Tara sees Demetre as a guard.  Bosgana plays more like a wing and hasn't shown an outside touch; she's a slasher.

Maybe there's a good future one right next to Lauren?


RE: WBB #1 2022 Lauren Betts is Cardinal! - Hulk01 - 01-13-2021

Any scholarship experts out there?

According to our roster, we have 14 players, with Brown and Dodson both inactive. 
So we have an extra scholarship to play with?

That may explain why we lose three players from this year's team after graduation--
Jerome, Wilson, and Williams--
but have four scholarship players coming in:
Bosgana, Harriel, Demetre and Iriafen.

But if so, doesn't that mean Tara can sign four players in this Betts/2022-23 class,
to replace the two Hulls, Dodson, and Brown?

Yes?

How about another good sibling?

Absolutely fantastic news. What a concept, a team with both Brink and Betts!


RE: WBB #1 2022 Lauren Betts is Cardinal! - chimera - 01-13-2021

Fantastic news!!!!  Hope this class is an amazing one.  Already is, really, with the #1 player.  Welcome to the Betts family.

Been texting talking with friends but what an awesome development to wake up to. I think I heard a hint on recruiting from Tara on the zoom last night then I thought nah wishful thinking. Sure hope I get to see travel basketball this spring summer

Starting 2022, the paint is officially closed. No opposing players are allowed to enter the paint. All applicants to put up a shot in and around the paint will be emphatically denied.


RE: WBB #1 2022 Lauren Betts is Cardinal! - BostonCard - 01-13-2021

By the way, if I am reading the HoopGurlz site correctly, there are now 4 top-10 players committed; three are coming to the Pac-12 (Betts, #9 Aaliyah Gayles to USC, and #10 Raegan Beers to OSU).

If twitter likes mean anything, our toughest competitor for Gardiner will be Oregon State and UCLA. Most of her likes are related to Oregon State. Her AAU coach is Natalie Williams, who will of course veer her to UCLA.

As talented as Gardiner is, she’s probably more of a luxury than a necessity with Iriafen, Demetre, Brink, and Betts. Gardiner can play three through five, but four is probably her best position. She plays the three for high school because two of her teammates are taller than her and also top-75 players.

Mendelson is one of her teammates, I think she is top-10 (chime in if I’m wrong here, BobK!) in volleyball and top-25 in hoops.

Stanford definitely has a great shot at getting the #1 class in 2022.

I think this makes the three-point shooters even more important for us. Demetre, Bosgana and to a lesser extent Harriel look more like slashers than shooters to me. They should all be sure they shoot at least 500 threes every day and Iriafen might as well do the same. Betts will change how we run our offense to some extent and open up a lot of opportunities for perimeter shooters and slashers.
