Baylee Rexing of Suwanee, Ga., is back on the board after originally committing to Mississippi before the start of the 2012-13 high school season.

Vitals

Name: Baylee Rexing - Grad Year: 2014 Location: Suwanee, Ga. - School: North Gwinnett HS Current Position: PG - Projected Position: PG

Strengths

Rexing’s signature is her willingness to do whatever is needed for the team to win. We’ve seen her make huge contributions on the offensive end by scoring 17 points to help beat a nationally-ranked Norcross High School (Ga.) team last January. We’ve also seen her get it done of the defensive end by guarding the other team’s point guard the length of the floor, making it hard for them to get in an offense quickly. That’s a quality with even more value at the collegiate level where the 30-second shot clock comes into play on every possession. Her ballhandling and the skill to knock down the open ball reversal 3-pointer make Rexing a valued prospect for schools needing to secure a point guard in their 2014 recruiting class. The 5-foot-4 Rexing lacks the prototypical size for the position but her strength in the weight room has allowed her to make up for that.

Area To Improve

Continuing to gain experience in managing late-game situations is essential as Rexing looks to move on to the college level. Playing alongside such talented guards as Lexie Brown, Te’a Cooper and Kaela Davis appear to have benefitted Rexing’s growth as a player. This summer will be the first time in three years that we will evaluate Rexing in a setting where she is expected to be in control of a team down the stretch as she suits up with Deep South Elite. The three-star prospect will be the go-to point guard on a roster with several Division I graded prospects.

The Bottom Line

Starting with Elite Basketball Academy Super 64 Camp in June, this summer is a crucial one for Rexing. Her skill set has grown leaps and bounds since our first evaluation of her as an eighth grader. Work ethic is a trait that seems to translate regardless of the level of play. A gym rat, Rexing has made her name off of outworking the competition and surely brings that skill to the table every time she laces up her sneakers.
