Louisiana Girls Rankings - All State Prospects
Updated: May 22, 2020
Lets be honest you could argue about 20-30 additional players not on this list and I could agree with your argument. Let the conversation begin...... heck maybe even one day we could see a Louisiana versus another state!
I'd love to see Louisiana vs. Arkansas/Mississippi/Texas etc.
Maybe LGR can make that happen in the near future! :)
Before we start with these honors I'd like to clarify a few things prior to doing this list. Anytime a list like this is made several ladies that deserve to be on the list will be left off and that is not a knock to them by any means! Teams are left out the NCAA tournament and people are left off list all the time... my point is let's try to refrain from all the negative talk because in talking negative about "player A" not being on the list in my opinion your taking a shot at the girls that are on the list!
Second disclaimer I have no rules about different players from different classifications this is open to all girls basketball across the entire state at all levels and classifications.
Considering these two things:
1) Production from this high school season (only one player did not make the final four)
2) College prospect - how will her game translate to the next level?
With the Louisiana Girls Rankings all state team I wanted to actually create two five player teams of the best players at each position so again a few players may have been left off especially since we already have so many guards in our state and so few bigs. All 10 girls listed below are not in any particular order but instead which players I felt fit the "prospect team" the best.
PG - Jeriah Warren - LaGrange 2021
G - Jerkalia Jordan - John Curtis 2020 - Tulane
G - Jaylyn James - STA 2021
F - Tamera Johnson - LCA 2020 - ULL
F - Amoura Graves - Ponchatoula 2021 - LSU
G - Qua Chambers - Benton 2020 - ULM
G - Diamond Hunter - Lee Magnet 2020 - Sam Houston
G - Erica Lafayette - McKinley 2020 - Rutgers
F - Mikaylah Williams - Parkway 2023
F - Kiersten Nelson - Ursuline 2020 - Samford
Lets take closer look into each team:
Point Guard - Jeriah Warren - LaGrange HS 2021 - Starting at point guard we have the 5'11-6'0 point guard from LaGrange High School. She not only helped lead her team to its first state championship earning MVP honors but she's also getting interest from several mid major and high major schools. (Florida, Oklahoma State, La Tech, Tulane to name a few)
Guard - Jerkalia "Jerk" Jordan - John Curtis HS 2020 - (Tulane) - Louisiana Gatorade player of the year, four time state champion, four time state championship MVP, the list goes on and on..... it's safe to say Tulane got a good one here!
