It was a big week on the recruiting front nationally. Three NCAA Tournament-caliber programs received a boost to the future talent pools with commitments. All three pledges are ranked in the ProspectsNation.com Elite 25. Here’s a look at who is headed where:

 

Aijha Blackwell

Aijha Blackwell

Missouri, Class of 2019

POSITION/RANKW  /  4

HEIGHT5' 11"

COMMITTED TO

Missouri

#20

Blackwell committed to in-state Missouri on Monday night. Currently ranked No. 21 in the 2019 class, she becomes the highest rated recruit since current Mizzou star Sophie Cunningham to pledge to the Tigers. A versatile 6-foot wing, Blackwell has all of the tools to step right into Cunningham’s place in the lineup when she graduates next spring. Landing Blackwell over the likes of Louisville and Mississippi State speaks volumes to the job Robin Pingeton and her staff have done with the SEC program since arriving in Columbia.

 

Maori Davenport

Alabama, Class of 2019

POSITION/RANKP  /  3

HEIGHT6' 3"

COMMITTED TO

Rutgers

#17

Davenport committed to Rutgers on Saturday afternoon. By doing so, the nation’s No. 17 ranked prospect in 2019 follows a trend of talented players from the southeast heading north to play for legendary coach C. Vivian Stringer. Davenport is a legitimate 6-4 option capable of contesting shots around the rim, running the floor and finishing on the other end. She’ll provide an immediate infusion of post talent to a Rutgers program looking to reestablish itself as a consistent national power.

 

Jordan Isaacs

Georgia, Class of 2019

POSITION/RANKF  /  5

HEIGHT6' 2"

COMMITTED TO

Georgia

#15

Landing players with Isaacs potential is becoming the new normal in Athens. Right now, Georgia is on a roll with coach Joni Taylor receiving both a pay raise and contract extension this off-season. A left-hand dominant 6-2 forward, Isaacs has the potential to make a play in late-March that would catapult Taylor and the Lady Bulldogs back to the Final Four. In Isaacs, Taylor gets the nation’s No. 19 ranked prospect and a player filled with both ability and talent.
