Sneak Peak at the Updated Rankings
Updated: Apr 19
After a long awaited wait and long over due we are finally set to update the rankings! I first off want to apologize for the length of time it has taken and thank everyone for understanding. Although last year was a difficult year for me personally it is our goal to update the rankings 3-4 times per year to again keep the conversation going about OUR girls and we look forward to doing that in the future! We appreciate all the help from everyone around the state like I always say it truly takes a village.
With the first evaluation period right around the corner and a last chance look at all the prospects this weekend at our tournament The Challenge we look forward to releasing the updated rankings next week! Lets get the conversation started about OUR girls. Let us know who we missed by commenting on all social media platforms. Keep it positive and remember the only purpose of these rankings is to get people talking about Louisiana girls basketball and to give OUR girls a platform…..so with out further ado let the conversation begin!
2024 Class Top 5
1) - Jada Richard - Lafayette Christian Academy
Club Team - Louisiana United - Clay / LSU Commitment
No change to the top spot here as the star of girls high school basketball this year in the state will rest on the shoulders of recent LSU commitment Jada Richard. Like we said last year with Williams you don't see prospects like this come around very often so if you call yourself a basketball fan or have any young hooper considering basketball make sure you take the trip down to watch a few LCA games! No better way for a young hooper to fall in love with the game than watching one of the greats play the game with passion Jada does and score the ball at such a high level. Don’t be surprised when she has a huge summer and lands herself in the top 100 in the ESPNW rankings.
2) - Terren Coffil - Chalmette
Club Team - Lake City Pride
After electing to move out of the state to play basketball at a prep school in Arizona Coffil has since returned back to the state where she will look to play club ball as well as her senior year in high school. Terren was playing some of the best basketball last summer before she left gaining interest from several mid major plus programs taking unofficial visits as well as interest from higher. She certainly has what it takes to play at that high level of college basketball and this summer will be a big one for her. All college coaches in the region should definitely have her schedule circled to check out!
3) - Chloe Larry - Parkway
Club Team - Arkansas Mavs
In the case of Jordan and Pippen it's never easy to play the role of Pippen as Larry has done in high school over the past few years along side McDonald's All American Mikayla Williams. Chloe has continued to step up to the challenge and has earned the respect of coaches across the state as several teams decided to run a box and one on Larry instead of Williams in an effort to slow down the powerhouse of Parkway. Credit to where credit is due as Chloe Larry's game continues to improve and she jumps into our top 5 rankings for the 2024 class. College coaches make sure to give this young lady a look this summer as we've seen a huge jump in her game and expect another as she looks to keep Parkway back in the state championship hunt!
4) - Whitney Hart - Liberty
Club Team - Louisiana United - OJ
Whitney Hart's game made a leap forward this year as her rebound and go ability to start the fast break really was showcased. Coach Wilson of Liberty High School really trusted Hart and her ability to bring some versatility to their team this year. Her face up game and 15ft off the bounce has improved as well as overall consistency of her skill set on offense. The potential is certainly there with the 6'2 forward and with another jump in her game this year coming college coaches will be begging her for an opportunity so coaches make sure you get in early!
5) - Eve Alexander - Lafayette Christian Academy
Club Team - Louisiana United - Clay
Eve Alexander is still one of the most underrated prospects in the 2024 class! I would take Eve at the Division I level right now let alone as her game continues to stretch away from the basketball. (Her last bucket in the 2023 season was a 3pt in the state championship game.) When I watched Eve lock down and out play a top 5 post player in the 2023 ESPN top 100 rankings signed to a power five school I didn't need to see anything else. She has checked every box needed and deserves an opportunity to compete at the division I level. Mark my words what ever level she lands at in college she will be a multiple year starter at that school! College coaches, send your post coach to check her out this summer you won't be disappointed!
2025 Class Top 5
1) - Cherie Spencer - Northshore
Club Team - LA Soul Platinum
Cherie Spencer makes the biggest jump in the 2025 class out of anyone jumping from 7th all the way to 1st in the class! She is currently sitting with zero college offers but after the April evaluation in a couple of weeks this won't be the case. You can tell she's been in the gym and has consistently worked on her game and offensive skill set! She started high school playing out of position in the post and we told everyone she's a guard well she has taken that to another level as she's now a true combo guard or even point guard! Big strong physical guard that can create her shot on her on one on one. College coaches better take the time to get eyes on this young lady this April because I promise you her recruitment is about to blow up and you don't want to be late to the party!
